well i finally have a little time to carve since school ended. so here are a couple of things i have been working on.

this is carved in Andiroba, a red Mahogany substitute. the disign is kind of from a few pictures of art from the Hiva's.






this one is a candle i bought from Bosko's. thought it would be fun to carve and i couldn't think of any thing else to carve.



there is a word "TIKI" raised up below the mouth but i can't get it all in one shot as it wraps around. i still don't know how i will finish it.

Nice work. Warrior mug design. I've been wanting to do one of those for my collection for quite a while. On the first page you have an almost exact replica of the Gecko Maori that I own.

Nice stuff Octane!
It's cool to see the progression of your work. I really love the "Party Melon".
Mind if I borrow it? Not the actual melon, just the idea...
Aloha,

Octane, your carvings are excellent. I imagined that your tiki pole carivngs were pretty large (4-5ft) until I saw that group photo. MAN! the detail on those is awesome! and precise!
I'd have a hard time concentrating at school if I could carve like that...

thanks everyone for the praise. it has been hard with school taking up so much time. It looks like i might have to take another 10 week break from carving as school starts again and i have a very full schedual.

I haven't sold any thing yet. i have only done a few (all the ones in this thread). My parents have adopted most of them, or basically bought them, by helping me pay for some of my school fees. so i don't have any for sale, but in the summer that might change, as i will have alot more time and when i can get alot more carving done, and put a few out there to see if any one is interested.

I'm also not sure what to charge, as i haven't really sold any thing yet and my tiki's are a bit unusual size, as they are only about a 12-18 inches tall, and 3 inches in diameter. so they aren't your ussual big tiki's. is there some standard way to price your tiki's?

Oc I'd just figure what you want to pay yourself per hour and how long it should take to carve it. THEN CARVE AS FAST AND CLEAN AS YOU CAN.

here is a picture of a tiki i'm currently working on. Gecko saying there was no excuse and just carve got me out in the old garage and got the chisels a banging. actually i finished a non tiki project sooner then expected, which gave me some good tiki time today.








and a couple of the non tiki project for a friend who is into Kendo and Iaido two Japanese sword martial arts. It is a 1/2 scale Katana, made of all wood.
