That last one has the Wendy/Gecko mug look all the way. But a first for wood. Great job.

Funny thing is, mugs try to look like carved wood and now carved tikis are going for the mug look. :shecky:

Nice BigT. I particularly like the
cuts on the head-dress. The bowl would be great for a party treats.

Benella, teakey, seeksurf: thanks for the kind words.

Got some honey-do's on my list before Christmas, but hope to start on #3 soon!

Buffbad, that's the outline of his stomach. It doesn't seem to show up as well now that's it's painted. Thanks for the compliment!

Hey BigT, I like a lot. Don't know if you get the Tiki Magazine, but on page 9 there is a tiki that looks similar to yours, although a female version. Keep up the good work.

Some progress pics of #3. This tiki might look suspiciously similar to one of the Target tikis...

I'm further along than this, but need to take some current pics.

Yo Big T!


An old tiki from the Red Lion/Crowne Plaza/ Hanalei hotel in San Diego:



The Brady Idol was a brown version of this Coco Joes tiki:


Carve on!
Buzzy Out!

Wow, I love those! Thanks for the pics. I might have to try a copy of that first one.

Nice Job BigT I haven't seen the target tiki.
Sure looks green in your area. I guess Texas is a big state.

Thanks seek. That's pretty much the extent of our winter (Houston area). So far this winter we had one night of at/below freezing long enough to kill one of my few remaining stalks of sugar cane. Hard to grow that stuff in the woods...

Thanks. It's some variety of ash. They plant these kinda trash ash trees down here for quick shade, but they become diseased and don't live long. It's full of beetle tunnels. The round holes are from wood boring bees.
