I really like your carvings, and am sad that I didn't see that you had your work displayed at the Gresham Artwalk, I would have come just to see your stuff! (I especially like "Paddleman"!)

Hi NIxxon and thanks mucho. You hit it on the head, there is lots of life around my place. I have been here since 1995 and I still can't believe my good fortune. MikeyTiki come on out to the Artwalk this year in July or I will be at the Tiki-Kon event through Elroy Artspace around the same time. Glad you stumbled on this thread Cap'n, I appreciate the feedback.

That is some amazing stuff. You carve realy deep and have some very creative idea. I thought we had a lot of rain this summer as one of mine grew mushrooms too, although nothing like your guy. Your work is really nice

Thanks Grand Poobah- Deep carves equal big shadows. Really happy you like. Pjc I got burned out on those last two and so have not worked on them in a while. I will make another push soon. Been working on small stuff lately, something I can complete in a few days rather than a few months.

Here are some "quick sketches" to start.

With some inspiration and great advise from Aloha Station I started some small carvings.

After the first one was complete I was longing for a chainsaw, a heavy mallet, and some big- ass chisels but the second one went smoother.

Also got this basswood carving done and put a coat of Danish oil on a second.



This is a plank of basswood and will be the "Surfin' Bird


I cut through the side with a chainsaw and then used the bar as a stencil for the longboard.


Got a base roughed out for this crazy piece of plum.


One good thing about the recent stormy weather was this fallen branch of walnut. "Take a huge piece!" the homeowner told me, so I did.

Here is what is new.
"Tiki Tree"

This was going to be a necklace but it got too big. I added a few parts that I had hanging around and ended up with this. It is 10" tall by 5" wide. It needs to be dialed in a bit more, lashed at the cross beam and painted.
"The Culture of Tiki"

This is basswood that I added acrylic paint to, then painted with Danish oil. I wanted to make him look like he was holding a tiki mask in front of his face. I will darken areas so the eyes and teeth stand out and then be done.
"Surfin' Bird"

Basswood is so bitchin'. It's like working with a super hard soap. I have also been doing some glass pieces for Tiki Caliente 4, but decided to post them in the "Crafts" section. God I hate that name.

That's too funny - that's exactly what I tell most people when they ask me about what its like to carve Basswood. If you've never carved soap - give it a try. Great way to get into whittling (smells good too).

Great new pieces, cy. Your surfin bird drawing is pretty cool. I bet that would make a great painting.
