Well, folks...here's the Maori house panel done but minus the abalone eyes (coming from a friend that collects antique buttons). It took a week of steady carving in my spare time. The wood stained up beautifully...it's around 32 x 24". Whaddaya think?

You could have said that it just arrived from New Zealand and I'd have believed you.
Superb work!

Maybe he carved those big bad Luau tikis he claims to have found in an "antique" shop.
Anyone else notice how they seem to be multiplying?
Nah, nobody is that good!

Thanks, guys. The encouragement kicks butt. I tend to be too much of a critic of my own stuff...It took a lot of patient work, about 8 nights at about 3-4 hours a night. No, I didn't carve those Imperial Luau tikis....if I had skills like that I wouldn't be wasting my time as an antique dealer! I'm starting work on a Solomon Islands ceremonial paddle and a large Atakara when I get the Holidays out of the way. I have been thinking about trying to pile up some my war clubs, paddles, spirit boards, etc. and try a tiki acessory sale down at the Hukilau '03 bazaar. And Gecko ya still got that spirit board? Every time I get the camera charged up it seems like I get dragged away by something else..

I still get em. I'll save it for ya Wen eva you ready. A friend showed me the mug you are talking about fo trade and no I don't have that.
Good idea about selling at da Hukilau '03. Everytime I see your panel I think about my Koa body board I'm carving on. It's just hard to spend a lot of time on certain pieces of work right now!

Aloha

Cool stuff, looking good....you guys are lucky to have a supply of palm logs. I haven't tried any freestanding tikis yet. I'm about to try my first in poplar....a five footer in a Marquesan style, after a postcard we have in the collection from the old New York Trader Vic's. All we can get around here is pine and poplar. You do see cherry, walnut, and oak, of which cherry is the best carving wood, but large logs almost always go timberframe. I have them saving large 2x slices for me, like the cherry panel above.

Hmmm...really? I don't even know where to find palm logs. Where does everybody get their logs?
