WOW, I love the guy under the one in the car seat, how he's just kinda kicking back sitting on one leg. Very nice! I'm finally getting the hang of knees in general. he looks really natural and casual.
I see plants on a few of them, are you hollowing them out so they fit plants? Are you sealing them up to keep the water from going inside?

hey- thanks Mieko -i'm going to get some other views of that one. he's got a good profile.
yea, most of my tikis are bowled out on top, with a drain hole drilled from the lowest point out the back of head dress, neck, etc. an extra layer of sealant in the bowl and pushed through the hole doese the trick.
today was the perfect day for carving outside. i forgot my camera at work, so i took some pics using my daughter's digital. i'll upload them and get them on in a bit.

Nice work, greentikipat! I see on this one that you dared to go asymmetrical with it. Gutsy! Keep it up, man.

thanks a lot, Daves. sorry i didn't reply sooner. i'll put some finished pics of that one up soon. he looks good burned and sealed.

well here are some pics of my roratonga/marquesian hybrid. here he's ready for sanding. about 13 hrs or so into it. i'll post the sanded pics real soon. this is my first hardwood piece, and also my first completely hand-carved(and hand-sanded)as well. can't wait to pick up the chainsaw and grinder again.

I know it's been said but I have to say it too--I really like your deep cut style. Your detail work looks good as well. I'm diggin' the shell teeth too. Welcome to TC!!!
