WOW! Astounding work! He's sound good? Me too, like conga, I'm gonna copying your work...
I remember the first time I saw one authentic at the old museum of art of Africa and Oceania ... it may be well that day I told myself that I had to do Tiki carving.

McTiki - That's quite a compliment from one so talented. Thanks
Tahitiki - ditto above. I always watch for you to post. I'm really into the PNG and Marquesas right now.
Jerome - He doesn't sound bad but is too high pitched for my taste. In Texxas, he would be referred to as "all hat and no cattle".
Clarita, It's a slit drum. I saw plans for some small slit drums/slit gongs on the internet made out of bamboo. Just a thought.

I thought it was about time I tried a Maori style carving so I took an oak log off of the burn pile to practice. Now I wish I would have used a better log. So far, so good.



I gave the center carving a face lift a couple months ago but never posted it.



This third photo is also some old stuff I never showed before. Making progress slowly but not much new going on. I just wanted to say hello.

All good lookin tikis! I really like the one on the left in the second pic.

Is that oak Maori the 5' tall one that you had to stand up?

Excellent stuff as Usual and thar slit drum is Totally Sick! Love the tight, clean detail you are doing, takes a lot of "Carving Integrity" to get down to the nitty gritty.

4wd - The oak maori is only 27 inches and propably every bit of 30 lbs. You can see the 5 footer lying down behind the ancestor figure on page 10 (second photo). That 5 foot log is heavily buttressed at the root flare so I can't even roll it. I had to stand it up just so I could look at the different sides of the log. I'm thinking it will also be a moari. Depends how the practice piece ends up.


Thanks Benz - it is encouraging to hear kind words from one of the masters. I appreciate it.

Thank you all for visiting. And Yes loajia, they are indeed brothers. All three were carved from the wood of the same elm tree. That was back during my "eyebrow" phase.

Thanks Kino, BigT and Benzart. A special thanks,Benz, for posting the photos of your hook knife and the links. Lots of good info there.

and now, I'm calling this one finished.





And the glamor shots!
