This guy has been taking up space since may of last year and he is finally done.I have done several other carvings and just kinda worked on this when I felt like it.

He is going to be auctioned off for a charity event to benifit my sons school. I will be kinda sad to see him go as I have grown used to him hiding in some corner here or there.



Thanks for looking.

Cool tiki and great shot! Love the lighting and the snow.

As much as I've been complaining about how cold it's been in San Diego this year, at least we don't have snow!! But it sure is pretty to see

Hope you get lots of funds for your son's school.

Nice one Rodeo, what kind of wood is that? It has a very nice grain, was it very hard to carve?

He looks great. I was wondering when you were going to post something. I'm with Hewey, let's see some more pictures. It's good to see another northerner post a carving. Hope you do well in the auction.

Rodeo,

That one was one of my favorites that I had seen you post. It has been in the works for a while? Too bad it won't be staying with you, but it's good that it will go for a good cause. I would like to see some more pictures before he leaves home. It is very nice indeed.

Seeing the snow makes me shudder! It's going to be 80 here today. Makes for sweaty boar hunting Thanks for posting this one.

Bring on the tiki in flames!

-Gman

Nice job! For some reason I'm really drawn to the nose, maybe because of its primative appearance.

Thanks everyone.

Ben this guy is another cedar log that I had from the pole farm. Its full of tool marks and a few rough spots but I like it like that.

Kaha ki'i , the snow is real , real cold too. I went and got a heater from lee valley tools for the garage so now its a comfortable 40F to work in.

I have to admit that theres is something about this carving I cant figure out. A kinda feeling that I get knowing where he is going.

Here are 2 more pics





Mahalo for looking.

He's gorgeous. Like I told you yesterday, I love the balance of him, and those nice deep cuts. Even the cracks in the wood sit on him just right. And the grain... oh la la!

I hope he does great at auction!
