Pardon me if you already answered this, but are you selling these? I'd love to own this little guy!

Look, Your mermaids chubby too.
Girls faces are tuff.
I can't tell you how to make them good but
I can tell you when they're fuggly.

Hiltiki, stay tuned…I can never carve just one of anything.
Thanks Jeff… Yes, it’s getting to be quite an army. On the other hand, I always have a huge turn-out for my birthday party!
TikiTacky – I sent you a PM.
Will, Will, Will….you remind me of some of my friends. They say rough and chubby not only describes my carving style but my taste in women. I tell ya, one off night in the tenth grade and some people never forget! Ha! just kidding...I've never had an off night!

I purchased amate's little Marquesan carving and am very happy with it. It's really well done, and is a great addition to my collection. I also felt his prices were more than reasonable (seriously!), so if you're looking to add a tiki to your collection, by all means send him a PM.

Amate, you need an Etsy store!

Cy- the panel is a bit different. I’ve been feeling a bit burned out on the traditional stuff so I need to find new enthusiasm and still maintain a tiki connection. This carving only serves as a clue to an upcoming carve with a tiki connection that will be revealed soon.

TikiTacky - I hope you enjoy him and thanks for the endorsement. Some one has suggested an Etsy Store but I still haven't gotten around to researching it. It's a lot more fun for me to make things than try to figure out how to get rid of them. It has been my policy to take the path of least resistance so I just keep doing what's fun.

Professor G. - I never knew the sea cats were good to eat. We always considered them a nuisance but, considering your profession, I have to believe you. Since you asked about the progress on my sea cat carving recently, I guess I’ll go ahead and post a progress shot before I break it again. I may not be able to salvage it the next time.
For those who are not familiar with Professor G’s work, Check this out.

He takes great photos as well don’t you think? He's an artist on multiple levels.




Now a question for you woodworkers. I used some DAP Plastic Wood to repair some areas on the sea cat. Has anyone used this product? How does it take stain? Worst case is I’ll have to paint it but that’s a whole new learning curve.

Also, just about to wrap up the carving phase on this little boogie man.

Thanks Conga,

The shapes on many of my logs seem to suggesting they want to become fish.
Still a lot of sanding to do on this very well seasoned piece of oak.

Thanks for sharing the site, Amate. I'm loving the gafftop.

I only know that sea cats taste good because I had Cajun neighbors. If they caught it, they were going to cook it, and when they cooked it, it was going to taste good. Good grief, though, you really had to block any thoughts of the layers upon layers of slime they produced*.

The new little bogeyman is looking interesting, too. I always enjoy my trips to this thread.

*Edit for unclear antecedent: the gafftops produced the slime, not my neighbors.

My wife is Cajun. I'm glad you explained about the slime, because in my experience it needed clarification.

TikyTacky – You can’t grow up in SE Texas without learning to appreciate Cajuns. Laissez les bons temps rouler ! AYEEE!!!

This Moai is 24 inches tall. To my eye, the moody, low key photos always seem appropriate for tiki carvings. Just my personal preference I suppose.





Got a couple of tighter shots when the sun came up.





Big T - I still have a few ideas but it’s getting tough to keep it tiki without repeating myself…This next one I started is a good example of a repeat. I already have a couple carvings that are very similar to this. I’m not even sure why I feel I need another one.

The 24 inch Moai is just right.
