Sorry to hear of the move bit, moving sucks!
Show pic's of your new gallery if there is one.

PS let me know if or when you may be able to do a trade thing.

Thanks ATTC, Mr. D still is still lacking something, not sure what, but he is in my room awaiting the final touches. Big T, not sure about the inside portion of the face yet, a lot of times I carve myself into a corner. No room for a gallery I'm afraid Skip, we are now in a shop with half the space as the last one so it's tikis galore in my garage. Let me know on the swap, as we are in full t shirt printing mode once again.

Thanks Maddog, I wanted a combo of a well-hung bumatay and puffer fish. Last week I experimented with a log that had been down in my yard for a year but left uncovered. It was soaked with rain water but it carves beautifully, reminding me of palm. I know it will crack as it dries, we will see where and how bad.



Also did some work on this heavy, splintery, hard piece of purple heart. I might as well be trying to carve a Fort Knox vault door, it scoffs at any tool I try and throw at it. If it were not so beautifully purple all the way through it would be in the wood stove.

Cy, really appreciate the way your stuff shows so much expression with such a mod twist that is the signature of the Cy Style! Are you still going to use back lighting on Lilly?

Thanks H10, that one is going to take awhile to complete as it is so hard I can only work on it for a half hour at a time before I'm too sore. Keylo I have been experimenting with Lilly (named after that hot ATT chick) and think that she looks better without the lit background. I would be interested to know what you all think. Aloha Texas Tiki I finished "Mr. Devlin's Luau" by adding orange highlights then jamming a brush full of grey into the recesses and wiping the excess away to deepen the contrast. Now it is done.




Also some progress on this small cedar log.

It hard to believe but you stuff just keeps improving. Those last two finished pieces are just crazy good! I can't wait to see that purple heart completed.

My take on Lily is it works either way, with or without lighting.....but I vote for the lighting because I think it accents the movement of the shape, giving off an aura of the character you created.

amate even though we have never met, I consider you a friend that has encouraged and inspired me from my first days here on TC, thanks! Besides doing my best to keep tiki moving ahead, my goal is to keep improving so I appreciate your kind words. Keylo, you changed my mind and will finish Lily with the lit background. We had a day without rain on Sunday, so I uncovered this heavy, pulpy, 7 foot piece of birch and did a bit of chainsawing.

It is not will carve massive, but trying to stand it up is a major chore.

That Birch Mondo 7 footer looks very cool! As far as it not being as massive like Wills, I think he is holding out on us. I think he is the one responsible for making the pyramids.

I really enjoy the art and the comments. CY I love this last one with the monkey on the head. All that lifting is keeping you strong. The tikis look great in your beautiful yard. Wendy
