here's my "head case" tiki mug shelf, inspired by the great witco and keigs. It should be going on ebay soon, probably not the best timing with all the events coming up, maybe I'll keep it til the long beach tiki festival. Basement kahuna . . . your precision is mind boggling. Nice finish Lake Surfer.







here's the shudderfly slide show of all the pictures if your crazy.

my digital camera was acting all fussy, so i couldn't take these until I took it apart to fix it.

the moai is the first real carving that i did on my own. it's kinda rough. probably did this about 6 months or so ago.

the "tiki bar" sign is still being finished up. still can't decide how i want to finish it. it is a solid piece of wood. took a lot to carve out all of those letters... they aren't glued in there.

my little tiki guy was a lot of fun to do. comparing him to my moai, i've come a long way. still have a long way to go, though

like BK, Gecko, and some others have said. the more you carve, the better you get.
Chris

here is my latest carving, not 100 % done but getting close. this tiki was different in that i tried to use chissels as much as possible compared to my others which used mor chainsaw.



i will also add my carving of a watermellon for my friends party.

Lake Surfer, TikiTony, AngryTiki, Octane, good work! I love to see the different styles.
Octane this is not a putdown, it's just funny to me, but that squatty one looks like he got hit by a truck. It must be a challenge to do one so short. The watermelon is a great idea. Too bad you have to eat it. Sticky hands?
I'm doing more hammer and chisel also. Keep it up guys!

Digggin' all your posts TikiTony, Lake Surfer, Octane, AngryTiki. I got a good chuckle from that melon. I will have to give that a try for our family reunion this weekend. Although, I dont think too many people in my family will have any idea of what it is. They all think tiki is a kind of wood that is used to make expensive furniture.

Umm, all of these pic's of carvings are outta this world! You people are one talented bunch! I have one question... where do I post pics of my Tiki Paintings? This is for carvings, I didnt see any on paintings. Is there a special place for paintings of enchanted tiki art?



Im not suffering from Insanity, I'm enjoying every minute of it!

BK- Got the job done but missed Heather by an hour.Damn! But now, they can brag to all their friends that they have Bamboo Ben work in their pad. Gonna get a digital and post some pics real soon here. Most of the installs are the Bali look though. I'll post some of the Tikis from the past instead. Amazing what you can do with a Sawsall.
