great tikis gecko and everyone else, I just finished this one. It looks kind of plain and cartoony compared to geckos. He is a fat little guy. I also made the the little girl on the left she was a lot easier to make but is a lot harder to maintain.

Kool Kuts Keigs!

What's the backside like?
Does he have a flat-top head?
Is this going to be an ebay item or straight sale or a keeper? (I'm talking about the tiki. I already have a little girl.)

Sugar caddy daddy sorry about my late reply. I spent half the day waxing it and threw it on ebay without checking for replys on tc. Kind of short on cash so I put them on about as fast as I can carve them. It is carved on the back and flat on top here is the link for better pictures
Hey turbogod glad you like

Here is the latest from me...it's a double Marquesan plaque, modeled loosely after the ones Gecko photographed in the Waikiki Intl. Marketplace on the side of the old Trader Vic's. It's 4 feet tall. This is my first real experiment with artificial weathering and distressing, and it has sort of a soft-glow Witco effect. Available at Hukilau, slightly cheaper than a Bosko 4-footer (140.00), and lot's more bang for your buck!

Hey Everybody, really diggin' all the nice work you folks are putting out ( tiks and kids)
Hey Keigs, very cool carving. I have a client who comes by my studio with her kids. The kids call the tikis "Freaky Guys" and will not be left alone in any room with a "Freaky guy" in it. Pretty funny, That big ol tiki you carved would probally keep them out of my neighborhood !
BK, Your new freaky guys are always cool. Like P-pop said, I too am running out of adjectives to describe the fantastic carvings you and Gecko create each month. Dixie Chicked? I must of missed your remark. If you don't here any comments from me later on I probally came across it. (Chongo make funny joke ha-ha.)
Aloha Gecko, Your in the same class as BK. I got to crack open my dictionary and learn some new words to express the quality of your work. The picture with the eerie lighting is bitchin. (Bitchin' is Still my favorite adjective after all these years)
Tikitony, I like the simple lines and style you got going on. Very unique and interesting. I am sure your tikis would keep the kids away from my house too.
Keep those chisels sharp and the eyes peeled for homeless logs. I scored a few small cypress logs and a fairly straight piece of driftwood over the last few days, so I will have something to start working on when I get home from the O.C Crawl.
Aloha,
Chongolio
