thank you Jungletrader, Benzart, and TNT Tiki.

I hope you like the tiki TNTTiki, it was a fun project, i will post some pictures below of it finished with the clear coat on and some other various little projects (Cabinet door handles & finished Maori panel)


Here is the finished bat with the clear coat applied







this a Gecko Jr. at least a small version of Gecko's Maori guy. this will be like a door handle, beer tap, or some thing. he is 6 inches tall and 1 1/4 diameter. made out of a dowl i got at home depote




this is a pair of door handles made out of the same size wood as Gecko Jr.



here is that Maori pannel i did a week or so ago, but i finally got around to adding the shell eyes

Yes the bat is very nice and that is Not Soft wood. I would like to have seen a bit of Head dress on top, but it's No big deal. Carving Well done.

That's going to be one cool cabinet with handles like that. that bat is awesome too - I'm sure it's a first and not to be copied by any other.
Is the cabinet going to be all tiki'd out too? Keep 'em coming - ya got talent...and a lot of it!

thanks: Polynesiac, TNTTiki for the nice words

Polynsiac: the handles were for Da Gecko, but i do have a cabinet that is being tikiifed, with tiki legs i carved (some where in an earlier post) and a set of door handles for my self, but thats it so far, i need to get the matting, bamboo, and top piece. i will post pictures when i finally finish it.

as for the bat, that wasn't my idea, but was TNTTiki's good idea.


Gecko, hope you like them, and here is the finished " Da not so big Puka" (4 1/2 inches tall)






No power tolls were injured in the making of this any of the O'tiki tiki's this summer

excellent quality. What tools are you using? How about a picture of your workspace and tools?

here is a picture of my work place. nothing special. I currently planning to build a new work bench, but until then this is it.



sorry for the mess haven't cleaned up today.

as far as tools, i have a a normal straight set of chisels (Millar falls), there are about 8 in the set but for the size work i'm duing i only use the two smallest one.

the short brown handled ones are just a palm set i got from Lee Valley, i don't even know the name of the brand.

there are small silver tools, almost dentist like tools, which are mini chisels which i got at Lee Valley as well (like $9.00) they aren't great quality and will bend if used on harder woods, or if you use with a hammer.

a standard old box cutting knife with the blades you can break off at cirtain points.

a old rubber mattel, that isn't very rubbery any more, and the head will fall off every once in a while.

a pair of calipper, for the smaller stuff to make sure everything is the same size (or as close as possible)works well especailly when doing a pair of tikis like the cabinet handles.

a vise that isn't even screwed down, and a couple of files, sand paper, a chop saw when having to cut off the tikis from the dowl/baseball bat blank (so i do use a power tool)

i think that is it ( i have many other tolls but are not used for tikis.
