Seek -
nice looking totem. I've been doing some research on Haida orca carvings and it opened up a whole new window of awesome carvings. Are you going to paint this one?

That Lono is really kick ass too. Great work!

KiltedTiki - Thanks for the drop in.

TheBigT - Yes the floor I don't have anything setup for
off the floor. Its OK with me because i don't know any-better.

Polynesiac - Thanks yes I think i will apply the paint.
I goggled the Haida orca very nice.

surfin - Don't know about masterpiece but I'm getting better.

laojia - Mahalo Yes Bill Reid WoW his work realy stands out.
I don't know how far or long i will work in this direction.
This carve was inspired in me by the tribal elder Russell Woodruff from Lapush, WA.

Couldn't you always cover parts that you don't want to dry too fast? Love the frog. My dad made a clay pot a decade or two ago and always stuck hard in my mind.

Damn Seeks, nice frog!

Do you do everything in life so perfect?

This is going to be a very impressive carve, tiki or no tiki.

You've got to spill the beans sometime... you must have some sort of sculpture background... or just a hell of a great eye for 3 dimensional work.

Your work is wonderful, the best. Thanks to guys like you and Benz, Tucson Tiki and all the other great carvers on TC, I keep on trying. If you haven't already , check out this film, well worth the 27 minutes to watch about Bill Reid, Haida carver.

Well that's just incredible. No, it's even better than that. Wonderful
lay-out of the figures, you must have had ancestors on the NW coast.

teaKEY - thanks I have covered other carves, but I didn't know it was going to take this long.

Lake - Thanks on the frog, Yes i pain-staked for a week on that
frog. I think carving is the only thing i stride for perfection
on and it could always be better.
Yes, the beans question again. Its the good eye thing.
Hiding past talent is not my style.

drogat456 - thanks, but im nowhere close to a Benz.
Yes i will check out the bill reid link. I love his Raven
Creation clam carving.

conga - thanks conga you and your carvings are one reason
i stick with it.

Wow! We're on the same wave length. I have been trying to figure out how to incorporate a frog into my carvings. However , I wanted to make mine a chirping frog (have you seen the wooden frogs that make a chirping sound when rubbed). Great carving - keep going.
