Very nice and simple. Doesn't take away from the pond.

Awesome work on the vertically carved tikis, Bill! They came out great! Any particularly challenging aspects of carving like that?

Oh, I guess they're pretty safe from theft too, since they're rooted to the ground! Cool!

Thanks guys.
Eric, the biggest change in the vertical carving was holding the damn saw up! Usually, it's hanging straight down at arms length. Chainsaws are heavy after the first two minutes.

I finished up this toughguy yesterday. Here's a couple snaps.


Just a little deco around the eyes, mouth and chest.

Tikis... yeah, yeah - whatever. What I really want is pictures of the pond posted HERE

Actually, the tiki looks great Bill. Getting in a few last rock climbs before it gets too hot?

Thanks Bill! I gotta go back and get some pics with me standing next to them for scale. Without any reference, they look small.

I really dig your tikis, they remind me of older classic tikis the kind I remember floating around restraunts and apartment blocks in san diego twenty years ago. I always amazed at how smooth they appear as well,great work.!

the palm logs you have must be quite dense...here in Australia the most available is cocos palm logs which are pretty crap....do you know what type of palm you are using?
