Your on fire don't stop! This guy has some great lines.

The back is fine from what i have heard it should
limit the cracking up front.

Go to the echo shop and see if the have the carving bar for
that type of saw. I have a great little carving bar for my little
stihl.

A little late on the update, I've been out with bronchitis for almost a week.
So these are the three that will make up the ends and corner supports for this bar.
The "florida" style got a kind of abstract blue crab with a couple of implied facial features worked in.
Trying to talk the buyer into a dark stain on the Ku, but I don't think she's going to go for it.
She wants the finishes to match as closely as possible.
Really enjoying the Moai shape lately, been adding more & more subtle curves.
They can really get a lot of expression out of a few lines.


This one has nothing to do with tiki, but a fun little (paying) carving project.
Just a simple sign 32" x 10" in cedar for the front door of a local business.
At least the guy wanted a skull, right?


Thanks for looking!

Tyler

Gearing up for two art festivals next Saturday. Luckily one of them is happening right in front of a local shop that carries my work already, so I don't actually have to be there. The lady that owns the shop is going to be set up out front, just going to take 6 of mine out with her. The other one is another one where I can carve on site & set up a tent with finished carvings close to where I will carve.

Here are some progress shots:
One just rough cut, two burned waiting to be sanded, and one sanded waiting to be finished.
The tall one is being shipped to New York on Tuesday.
If anyone out there knows anything about working with a third party sales company out of state, please PM me.
I have some questions about handling/ packing charges/ taxes, etc.

sorry about the photo quality, they are phone pics.

Well, trying to get back to some serious carving,
but been caught up in smaller items that I can pay the bills with.
Buncha little ones for the local art fests:





If the weather will ever lighten up around here, maybe i can get crankin' on the two 7 footers i've been staring at for the last 6 months.

Got a few pics back from the bar installation.
Three of my tikis are used on the corners of the bar.
Hoping to get some more shots of the rest of the set up soon.
The bar stools the customer went with are like individual swings suspended from the ceiling!
I'll try to get some better pics when she has the grand opening party.
The construction contractor sent me these.




Thanks for looking!

Shipped off six this morning to a resale company for their showroom!!!
They aren't ready for any high end stuff yet, but its a start.
These are the ones headed to them:



Also got started on something a little more interesting for a local lady that performs weddings on the beach here looking for a more traditional look.

She wants to be able to use him as a kind of podium to support the couples vows to each other & relevant papers.

He's about 45" tall in the center with a 25 degree incline.

Just stripped & roughed in the head dress shape so far.
Couldn't get any decent shots of my sketches; too light & my camera sux.




Updates soon.
Thanks for stopping by!

Nice collection of stuff. I dig the way your Aku Akus look, they remind me of Paul Bunyan (in a GOOD way) for some reason.

Thanks, tea. I think she may be my best work to date.

Don't worry, the saw was cold. I just thought it was funny the first thing she did when her mom brought her back there to look at the new one was put on my glasses and pick up the saw.
