Hi Surf-n-turf
I'm not sure what kind of wood that is, just a log I got from the last storm.
Sorry.
I have another one with the bark on, I'll try to post a pict later.

Thanks for bumping this thread, because I never saw your old stuff - it predates me joining TC by a couple of months. WOW! Beautiful clean pieces with really well resolved forms. I sure hope you've got some more stuff coming.

Yeah! Thanks for bumpin' it. That uke is sweet! Very nice job! What's the chance we'd get to see some posts about actually building a uke?

Thanks for the feedback,
Tikigap, I don't know if I'll ever build one, even thought I could get into it,
Here is some image of the original Uke, I changed the head and the bottom of the neck to "look" more like a Martin.

Like Paipo said, I've never seen your stuff because it predates me on TC. Where have you been hiding?! You're carvings are great.

Isn't Eucalyptus fun? There are groves of it near me and when the trees blow down, the city workers will chainsaw them up and leave the logs. It's really hard to find ones that aren't split real bad though. Oh well, what do you want for free?

Your uke is looking sweet. Looking forward to seeing progress on it.

Cool, rad, bitchen!

Excellent tikilele, Tahitiki. from the looks of your earlier pieces, this will turn out to be a real Collectors item. Very Well Done.

Hi everybody,
Here is my latest Tiki.
I created it for a friend that's from Guam and it's about 2" tall.
The design is based on the shape of the Latte Stones of Guam (used as pillars in the construction of the huts there) the back is inspired from the petroglyph found in Guam too.






Here is how the huts looks like, people would usually store their canoes under it.



Thanks for watching

Nice work!

It is cool to see something a bit regionally different from what were are used to seeing. Nice cuts and clean work!

That hut would look good in my backyard... taking notes.



Whoops... just looked at the scale again with the people in the background... much bigger than I first thought! Not going to fit in my yard!
