Dav: I enjoyed the recent update to your website

Chicks will dig the new tough guy scowl thing you got going there.


I see your new marketing plan includes the "Tiki Guy" bad boy image makeover. I think you may have downgraded your professional status and reputation with this choice. Tiki "Master Carvers" are a dime a dozen these days, and you kind of went from "leader of the pack" status to just "another one of the herd" with your recent transformation. Bottom line: You're just not fat and drunk enough to pull off the Tiki Guy look, and you carve just a little too well to have to place emphasis on the tiki side of Dav. I think you should get a picture of yourself wearing a tuxedo for your next picture because in your new photo, you look like a tiki carving robot set on kill mode. You could be the James Bond looking carver instead-then your outward appearance would better align with your skills.
Why oh why did you have to go and wipe out all evidence of that old picture?

You'll always be TikiDav to me, and when I picture you in my mind, I will always see the old picture.
Buzzy Out!

Ah nuts! There's that jacked-up picture of me again. Well, at least Clarita likes it. (gracias amiga)

Okay then Buzzy, I see the logic in what you have to say, but don't you think the new picture has an aura of mystery to it? Just who is that behind those dark glasses? Is he going to kill me with that chisel he's brandishing? Why does it look I'm looking at him through the peek-hole in my front door? It's already very 007. (except sans tuxedo)

Here's the one I started at The Pacific Islander's Festival. Yep, coming along slowly as usual. It's 17 1/2" of cracked eucalyptus.



I'm using this pendant I made a while back as my reference and seeing if I can make the carving similar.



Ah, nuts! Would ya look at that? Stupid wood.





Nothing a little Elmer's won't take care of. That's it on the carving on you for today, lil' fella!

That's one cool idea for a clamp there Sir B...this fella is coming along nicely. You should take a shot of that pendant next to a dime sometime so everyone can see how small that bad boy is.

I hear island jungle drums rumbling in the background when I look at you work!

Thanks for stopping by Ben, Surfintiki, Babalu, BigT, Clarita, and Benz! Yeah, I've been having too much fun playing around on somebody else's thread at the expense of my own. I've made some (but not much) progress on Little Pumpkin.



I went a somewhat different direction on the headdress part than I did on the pendant, giving it a more vertebra look. It's been challenging busting those holes through without more breakage. I drilled through first, then carved them to shape.



Smile, Lil' Punkin'!
