Very nice work guys. Here's a couple more "Reloys" that I took the liberty of lifting.

This one a while back:

I really enjoyed reading through this thread as a new member. And have seen that Aaron has continued to carve. I enjoy the story behind the lost Leroy tiki and the all the info on the adventure to re-create it!

Aloha, Daddyomatic! Welcome to TC, and I'm glad you enjoyed the read. The best part for me was doing the detective work, trying to track down ol' Leroy. And of course all of the other Reloys that everyone has posted here. So, why don't you give it a shot? Once you start hanging out in the Creating Forum, you're as good as doomed to carve a tiki. I've seen it many times before...

This is bound to look sweet. Someday I'll have to print all of these up on good photo stock & mail them off to Leroy at O.A. in Whittier. I'm sure he'd get a kick out of them...

Putting it in BOT means it's pretty much fair game, as far as copying goes. I think this tiki falls under the "Public Domain" category.

Here are some current import variatons:
Typical burned:

Larger log, stretch it out and add some swirls

Painted or plain?

You are quite correct, Buzzy. Leroy & Sven gave us all Carte Blanche on this one. (See page 1 of this thread)…

...I asked permission from both Sven and Leroy. Here's their responses.

From Sven: "Please, go ahead, I see the whole Book of Tiki as a blueprint for the Tiki revival."

From Leroy via Bob van Oosting: "Aloha Aaron. I talked to LeRoy this morning and he said it's fine with him. It's available for all to copy---enjoy! Bob."

So, with Sven and Leroy's approval, I got started…

After my little Ohana gets resettled in North Carolina sometime next year, unless I can manage to find some carving time in between. After that, you’ll see a whole sh*tload of tiki carvings from A-A. At least that’s my plan…

Here's a couple of Reloys I did recently: Note the addition of hair and bone motifs as cammo... Thanks for the urge post these Surfintiki!
