Hey Bill,

These guys and gals are really looking super tight! That princess tikis's hair do screams fashion trend! I know the leaves will dry out, but I really like the green color they are now. A planter tiki would be cool. Can't wait to pick your brain at the next Chop. Got's a nice log for ya wheeler...thanks for helping a brother out when he was hurtin for a log back when..

Here she is, all done! 5'6".


3/4 view


These torso tattoos were painted on, not carved in first like all the rest.

Now to figure out how to ship this baby safely!

Started the next one today, it is an 8 footer, and is another commission. I just had time to cut in the basic lines before the sun went down at 5PM!


The customer wants it to look like this one, only taller.


And here's a pic of the tiki my granddaughter Victoria did at the last chop.

She drew the design on, I cut her lines with the chainsaw, she chiseled it out, I sanded with the grinder, she stained it and painted on the highlights.



She's eight. Look out world!

Nice work 4WD. The new girl looks great, she got style! Love seeing the mark out stage on the commision piece, I find it interesting to see the process of different artists. And wow, look at that kid go! That's a seriously cool tiki, but she's got a good teacher. Cant wait to see more from her! (watch it nate, she might start to steal you work!)

Nope, they're 1/2" birch dowel! I drilled holes, tapped in and glued the dowel, then cut them to just the right length, sanded and stained'em.

Thanks, hewey, seeksurf, and Ben! I'm thinking I'm gonna do more females. It's fun!

I mean carve more females!

Here's more progress on the new one. Since the last pic, I went thru a tankful of gas in the chainsaw on Monday, and another one today. Each tank lasts about an hour. It's starting to look like something!

Sure looks like it's a small stick in the pic, but it really is 8 feet tall.

You are turning out some top notch carvings. The full figured girl tiki is primo, modern clean looking but with old school charm. Very well done, brought a huge grin to my face.

I Love the last one.
Is there a link between the "R" rated title and the second opus of The Queens of the stone Age ? Sorry, I'm just asking


Benjamin.

You have some Serious tikiability on your hands. The tikis you are creating are Very traditional looking while maintaining that "4WD" look and on top of that they are Not looking like "Cookie Cutter" tikis! Congrats and Nice Stuff.
""
Best time to start'em out. This will definitely be a great Childhood memory. Excellent tiki Too!

JohnnyP, Thanks, I love her too, and would keep her if I could!

benella, thanks. What's the title of that Queens song?

Clarita, thanks for checking in, and Victoria appreciates your comments!

Benz, I wish I knew what that 4WD look was!, but I'm happy they're not cookiecutter.

Here's today's update on the 8 footer:



This week, I'll burn and stain it, and deliver on Saturday!
