Thanks everyone!

JohnnyP, I try to keep my carvings as clean as I can. I think it makes up for what I lack in talent.

rodeotiki, Thanks again. I had a Maori looking thing on there originally, but it just wasn't working for me. I like this way better too.

Benzart, it's always nice hearing comps from you. I liked the zebra wood even though it was a bit tough with the hand tools. I had to keep the design very simple though because any detail just got lost in the grain. I'm carving the Black Walnut you sent me. It's very nice to carve and it seems to hold a lot of detail, but I don't think it's as pretty as Mahogany.

CongaTiki, Mahalo to you too! I would love to be that busy carving, then I could quit my job and have fun for a living.

Bete, it's always great to hear from all of you. It's the real reason that I'm able to carve at all. Thank you!


BTW everyone, when I got my new computer I lost my carvings-to-do list. I believe I got to everyone, but if you are waiting for a pendant please let me know and I'll get one to you.

Mr. Predicta has started a custom tiki TV for a client and asked me if he could use one of my designs on the case. Of course I said yes! It is just the case right now, but I'll post pics when it's done. The tiki is the above #8. Everything else is hand made by him.










Here is the beginning of #10. I'm going to try and finish this one before the end of the month so I can take it with me on my Florida vacation.


Thanks all for looking!

Now how cool is that? You could easily make a living doing TV's I think. I know I might be interested in one... very nice work!

#10 is looking good. The TV cabinet came out great with the Finky accents. I've been working on bigger Tikis lately but can't wait to get back to the smaller stuff.

Finished #10 just a while ago, but not after he took a bite out of my thumb. This one's going to our good friend Pablus. I will present it to him in person in a couple of weeks as his prize for naming my bar. I'm just praying for good weather!











Thanks for looking, and thank you everybody for always being so supportive.

oh, neat. I like that little guy! Very simple, yet it seems like he could tell a whole story if you listened long enough.
