Dizaaaammn, junk in da trunk! G. BK I like yours too, I gotta get my hands on a log like that, I started carving in hardwood, and kinda miss it. Tikifreak, don't get all crazy, just take this for what it's worth from a fellow carver. Wayne Coombs is a very important figure in TIKI. Of the still active carvers, NO ONE TOPS Leroy, but Wayne is OLD SCHOOL and his contribution to the staying power and popularity of tiki is immense. These forerunners still pave the way for us newschool carvers to make a buck at carving. Educate yourself about the greats and pay your respects to them. In our minds we all have our own style and unique interpretation of Tiki. I've talked to the carvers that have influenced me and have made it a point to tell them so. Leroy and C'Al are a couple of mine. I'm a few years younger than you and don't claim to know it all, but I've learned that it's always best to talk softly and carry a big tiki. Sorry to anybody I might piss off with this long-a$$ opinion. After this post I will retire my written comments on this carving thread. Keep carving peeps.

Chickitiki... I agree with you... it pays to do a history lesson... and I have a high respect for all you mentioned including others historically covered in TBOT. Before I ever picked up a chisel I hung out with books from the library reading the history of the cultures and stories of the Gods... Personally, I'm with Gecko and BK in that I like to reflect the classic style of carving, and a little Israel Kamakawiwo'ole helps my mood too...
Makes my dark midwestern basement seem a little more island like...

Damned fine, Geck, as always....Hey I just got the courage up to send Leroy some pics of some of my stuff....Probably good for a laugh on his end, but I hear he's a real nice guy for being the Dalai Llama of Tiki carving!

Duuuuude! I just got big props in a letter from Bob Van Oosting and Leroy Schmaltz! I had to muster up all of the courage I could to send them photos! They actually said the words "Well done", "workmanship", and "talent". I feel like a Chaiou Lin who just got an audience with the Kung Fu Masters! Two nicer guys there never were...they even spoke of a guy that carved for them for 20 years named Ed Crissman that specialized in Marquesan and Tahitian figures...said he passed away a while back.I'd love to find out more about him and his work.

BK, Ed Crissman was a legend. His work is absolutely unbelievable! An example can be found on page 245 in the BOT. Traditionally styled carvings yet distinctly his own.

Gecko, very nice! Perfect job on the aging - looks like he's 50 years old.
