Thanks Plugger, that is an Excellent example of your diligent stidies. I Really love what you have done to that 'Spine" headdress. That lono has a lot of benzart in it, but there is definitely big Plugger influence. Really well done.. How small is he, and what kind of wood, And do you have other shots showing the other sides?
Thanks plugger

Man, the first time I passed that place on the way to the Mai Kai at night, I could have sworn it said "Swanky's TIki Bar"! Freaked me out.

Did you slam the brakes, get sideways off road? You probably thought you died and went to......a good place?

wow this is an inspirational thread!!

i wasn't going to post any pics on this tiki i'm working on until i had something decent to show, but this thread has inspired me...

here we have my attempt at your classic "Reloy" as inspired by Leroy and Aaron's Akua in threads gone by...



but just as i get to the bottom of the mouth i uncover some flaws in the centre of the log:


now i'm not sure whether to keep going deeper or just patch it up with filler later on... any tips? i have no idea how i'm going to sand the inside of that mouth either!

thanks!

Tgap I'm flattered.
Swanky, May be if it was your bar the tikis would still be standing. They got so much attention the mgr of the motel went out 2 week after I put them up & cut them down with a chain saw. He couldnt stand the attention..
Ben, I'm so glad your pleased. Took these this morning. This guy is 4 ft tall & coconut palm. my detait is limited by the size of my tools & my talent but I'm working on both.

Hey VonT, Way to bang'em out. Nice tikis and are those the Giant logs you were telling me About? Awesome, keep posting, and Keep upi the great carving.
Harro, I'm Glad you decided to post pic's, it helps us All get into the groove. Nice Reloy and don't worry about the defects in the center of the log..
Thanks for the extra pic's WPlugger. Looks to me like you have your tools And talent well under control.
Hey Moondog, don't worry about plain, it's more difficult to have a recognizable tiki with only a few cuts, so if you pull that off as in the moai, you're doing Very well. It is a real challenge to carve a tiki looking plain, isn't it..Thanks for posting.

Thanks a Heap all you guyz who have posted pic's of your tikis. That was the reason for this thread, to get us all to post pic's of what we are doing and I Knew there were more than a few peeps out there carving tikis. This is what this
Creating Tiki" forum is all about, Sharing our work with everyone else. It is really inspiring when we see Lots of tikis in progress pictures..HappyhappyHappy
Don't stop now.
