Got on a creative tear and knocked these out in succession. The Dark one is Mahogany and 7.5" long. The rest are a mystery from the wood pile. Will probably do more of these as they make great holiday gifts!

I enjoyed doing the first one so much that I decided to do another. Carved in a mystery wood (that is excellent to carve), while my daughter drove us to Disney last week. Got some time and finished him up last night.

Its been a while since I've updated my thread. I have been very busy, but still continue to carve and prepare for The Hukilau. The next few weeks should be productive as I ramp up production. In the mean time, here is a new frond. I added a little color to it, but I'm not completely happy with it. There may be some minor adjustments.

So Hukilau almost cleaned be out of tikis, but these three are still hanging around my bar. All three came from the same tree. The bent tiki (far right) is an omage to the dancing tiki I did years ago...


They are all around 4' tall.

Here is my project from the July 4th extended weekend. Still needs to be finished. Fell pretty good about most parts of it. May practice doing faces before the next one.
