DUDE! Another HUGE THANKS to the GMAN!!! As most of you suspect, that carving is 99.9999 GMAN and .0001 MBL. Still gun shy with the chisels. GMAN's a man of vision for sure, and way too generous with his time, guidance and skill. I could not have hoped for a better mentor.
Thanks again GMAN. I'll try not to screw it up.

Ok, so with Christmas on its way, I decided that my mom could use a tiki. So because I am artistically challenged, I stole 4WDtiki's idea, and started to make a tiki similar to one he carved. I am sure that it will not come out nearly as nice as his....4WDtiki has some really good stuff and I just dig his carvings, so I figured I could try and emulate one of TC's great carvers. If it came out half as good as his, my mom would have a nice present for Christmas.

Here is what I have so far. I plan on doing something of a head dress thing, burning it in, and using some spar varnish, ala GMAN's suggestion.
Let me know what you think.

MLB that Rod is sick! Love that tiki rod!

The tiki is a good first shot if its a first 2nd or 3rd shot.
Better than my first few.
Moms love anything you make.

yeah, the Rod/ Ride IS Sick. I want that bamboo finish in My truck, only in mine make the gas tank look like a giant stick of Bamboo. Can't you just Nail some 'boo to that metal?
In the beginning, Any tiki you finish is Great except the ones that Bite (don't lissen to that gmanguy ) just keep cutting them out and they will get better and better, And they can get by on a blood free diet, regardless of what some peeps say about having to "Feed the gods". (Isn't that what the virgins are fore?)

Yeah. we like that Tiki Rod down here. It gets all sorts of attention. I'm tempted to do some bamboo work on my 32 5-window, but I'm going form something early 50's period correct, so that's kinda out.

As for carving, I am definitely learning...thanks to GMAN's guidance. This guy is far from done. It will look like something more before I am done.

There are about 50 old cars in the woodz there. Some real kewl ones. I think they are all way past salvaging, even if one just wanted the bodies. It was neat to see out there in the forest though....
