Tikifille, HOW IN THE WORLD COULD YOU POSSIBLY BE SINGLE? Do all the men in your area ride the "short bus"?

Poly Pop... your second tiki looks great...
but yes... you just have to go deeper! I held back so much on my first carvings but now I realize that the deeper you carve the better the details look. Those are excellent tikis for starting out though...

I have been using Minwax's Polystain to color and seal a lot of my pine and basswood tikis that are going to be in the elements.... satin looks best...

Thanks Tikifille & Chiki. I'll have to keep practicing as I'm still getting a feel for the chisels as well as what to cut and what to keep. I hope to one day be able to carve as good as you guys.

LS - Yes, the cuts you see are basically just my guidelines. I intended to go deeper and more defined with my cuts after I roughed it out but when I screwed up in a couple of places, I actually thought about chucking the log in the trash bin. I decided to try and save it instead but didn't want to waste the time on the detail since the mistakes weren't salvagable.

I'm going to try a new one sometime soon. I have some big logs that need to be skinned first. Tikifille, I got your email awhile back for some logs (pine). I had my buddy hold about a dozen 3-4 footers with 16 inch diameters. Email me at
polynesianpop@yahoo.com and we'll work out the details - if you still want some of 'em. I'm in the 909 (Chino Hills) but my buddy lives in Chino, CA - he's got the logs.

Poly pop- I won't e-mail you because this morning I STUPIDLY opened an e-mail with a download with a nice virus. Norton Anti-virus came up immediately and did something, I had the imaginary demon first address on my address book, etc. but don't open mail from me for while. Hang on to the logs and I'll contact via someone by phone. Thanks.

Aloha villagers,

nothing fancy about this guy i carved except fo da wood. I jus wanted you kanes and wahines to see a exotic Hawaiian wood called "monkey pod". look at da beautiful colors and how they change.

In the past they made a lot of da pupu platter bowls shapped like leaves out of monkey pod. Most of da time from da Philippines.

dis tree jus wen cut down about a week ago is da reason fo da light color.





shaka

Hot stuff, Gecko... love the exotic woods... Your stuff is so beautiful makes me want to just throw in the towel... but on I carve... hopefully someday to become half as good as your talent! I wish I had the beauty of Oahu around me to inspire too!

You're a made man, Gecko, a "main guy". We're all just crew soldiers.

Gecko-that monkey pod wood is great with the color change at different depths. Here's a question for you--when I was in Hawaii I purchased 2 tikis carved out of this wierd fibrous dark wood. They're very slender and the seller told me that the wood was a specific gender (like only the female trees could be carved-or something like that). I just can't remember what the wood is called.
Do you know? Thanks

Once again.......totally awesome Gecko. Monkey Pod huh? Hard or soft wood. Hard I would imagine, but is it harder than Koa?

Peace. T.F.
