Barking is my least favorite core, but great for the pecks. Your tikis look better than my first attempts at carving wood! You should stick with it.

Maybe these guys can be hired for the tedious barking chore.

PolyPop,
Good carving. If I had a pumpkin beer I'd raise one in a toast.

P-Pop,
Your way to hard on yourself. Those tikis look pretty dang good to me. Keep at it.
The polyurethane is an interesting twist.

Thanks for the encouraging words guys. As a tiki enthusiast, I see many great carvings - especially on this board. Mine is obviously first grader stuff but I'm on my way I guess. Carving IS fun - a great way to clear the mind.

BK - Maybe one day I can try weapons like yours. I figure the best way to learn is to just jump in and do it.

mrtikibar - thanks for the compliment. If you ever make it to So Cal, the first Pumpkin Beer is on me!

JT - Thanks! Yes, it would be interesting to see what G says -- what's pidgin for "huevos?"

Chongolio - Thanks for the comp. After some of the work I've seen on this board, I was REALLY intimidated to post my stuff. BTW - the polyurethane is to protect it from the elements as it will probably sit on my front porch.


Thanks again everyone. Now that I've posted mine, let's see some others! I know I can't be the ONLY one here who's carved something and was afraid to post it!

Poly-pop.......

Those tikis are awesome! You're being way too humble. Man, I hope my first one looks half as good as those do! Now I'm really nervous.......

Polypop,
I agree you were being way to hard on yourself. They look great. I am working on one right now,based on my signature, but have been able to get the time to finish it.

BK like the splits? His name is the Mad Moai. Probably will stain it darker. Gonna try some fire on this one. Next step for me: 5 - 6 footers. I think I am ready. Gonna try to do 'um up nice for the PoweroftheTiki's deck bar this spring/summer.

Kahaka - Thanks for the awesome comp! Nervous? Yeah, I know bro. That's why it took me so long to post. Just go for it - what have you got to lose?

TG - Thank you for the comp. Hey man, that looks just like your logo! Bet it took forever to cut around the teeth!

Am I the only one that likes cracking? It just seems to me like every old tiki I've ever been infatuated with has had a crack or two that just "arrows in" the personality and story of the thing. I like old things, I like the aging on old things.

BK, I think cracking adds character to a piece. I recently purchased a 4ft burnt redwood pole from Bosko. It had cracks & checks all over it but it looks so natural on the log. I wouldn't have it any other way.

Yeah, It (a little cracking) just does something for it in a good way that can't be explained. Look at the tikis at the Place Of Refuge in Hawaii, and you can see what I'm trying to say. Just looks more "been there forever". By the way, Pop and Turbo, you have a super pieces in the kitty there...You got some talent you never knew about, and tiki creativity to boot.

Does anyone know if some cracking is "added" to newer pieces by some of the more well known artists? I think that it could add character.

I dunno. You can carve green medium or soft woods(but not too green) and you'll get a crack or a little checking somewhere here or there almost certainly, unless you've got a "1-in-10" piece of wood.

Thanks Poly,
Yeah, I'm halfway around the mouth now. I like a little cracking too. I think it looks good on some Tiki. Mine crack 'cause I hadn't heard of the pruning sealer idea until weeks after they startred to crack.

Poly Pop- Nice work. I think both pieces came out great. The learning curve is exponential in your first pieces. Great job and cudos for bravery.

BK- I actually position cracks so that they end up in more elevated/viewed areas. I love it when the same fissure runs through an eye, the nose, the lips and a tooth (without knocking the tooth out). It's the ultimate tiki character.
