Always happy to start new stuff.
A piece of cedar commissioned for a floating home on the Columbia River named "No Wake"

The only request was for a frog somewhere, so next is the paddle and nautical light holding tiki bottom section.

I got this 6x6 square from my barn. It has a beautiful grain.

A rather sketchy, pulpy brand of noble.

Here are a few shots of "Medley", an almost finished piece of poplar.


This guy thinks he is king of the frogs but he jumped into the pond with alacrity once my mower started bearing down on his amphibious ass.

I cant blame the king for his concern. If I were that size, a mower would have the same effect on me!
Looks like nice weather up your way. Already getting hot down south.
Carvings...outstanding as always.

Always a pleasure to get a satisfactory response from you Will, and also thanks to amate, the weather in Oregon has been fabulous for the last few weeks! Here is "Skeptic", a sketchy, pulpy, piece of noble that I wanted to complete for the Tiki Kon event here in just a month.

Hey cy,

Sketchy came out great. Love the contrasting color.

And you're tearing down your barn for materials?! That's dedication!

Well, not yet ready to tear down my barn for the sake of tiki BigT, but if I get short of lumber all bets are off. This cedar chunk has been a work in progress for the last couple o' years. It will hold shot glasses, mugs, bottles, and knick-knacks from past experiences.


Thanks too much Tikiskip for the hanging props that gives this carving much of it's personality.




This portion is based on a tiki from Sven A. Kirsten's tiki bible "The Book of Tiki"


It's an evolutionary tale that includes flowers, fish, crustaceans, insects, reptiles, mammals, humans, and all that contribute to the soup in which we swim.

Love it when a plan comes together.
That may need to go on a turn table.

Looking good Cy!
I love to be a part of your carvings.

Hey check this out.

https://www.google.com/search?q=forstner+bit&espv=2&biw=1280&bih=637&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=3EyIVcaiIIulNvXsqIgD&ved=0CE0QsAQ

These come as large as 4 inch or more I think.
So what if you put a hole right behind that tiki in the carve out area, then carve out behind that
tiki from front to the hole, then you could put a light fixture behind that tiki and have the light wash
over that area from behind the tiki.
This would hide bulb so that all you would get is a nice glow.
The bulb would be changed from the bottom of tiki.

Look at the light I sent you with the cork.
This is how I would do the light on the bottom.

Thank you Will and Hil! Skip you would not believe how much time was spent thinking about lighting this sumbitch, so I sure appreciate the helpful input!! Here is "Darwin" with a coat of orange and clear.

This is a commissioned piece for a house boat off the Columbia River. "No Wake" is doug fir.

Thanks Scot, I edited my screw- up as that one is called "No Wake". Besides a leaky floor, there is not much worse for a house boat dweller than a speeding boat in the neighborhood, hence the name. I added kiln- fired glass inserts to "Darwin" and will be bringing him to next week's local Tiki Kon event. Beautiful, warm to hot weather in Portland, hope to see you here!


This is a Hawaiian fish called Alaihi. I liked his spikey nature.
