haven't dropped by here in a while - but nice to see you still churning out the fine pieces marcus... this one's a beauty. hard to believe it is all one piece of wood! the 'old' look is achieved remarkably well, and the different stains on the board to achive the lines looks awesome! keep em coming!

I love the multiple coloured stains on the board, and the raised lettering and hibiscus flower really sets it off. Hell, id be happy with just the board, but threse also (half) a cool tiki up front. Very sweet dude.

I thought I saw the pic that sparked your Idea. But frankly yours turned out much better that the one that I saw. Great stuff and thanks for carving and sharing.

Marcus,

Wow man, how did you get the "stringer" lines in the board? I had a giant old school O'Neil longboard like that. What a great touch! The whole piece looks like it should be in a museum. Absolutely choice. A fab piece all around!

Marcus, once again an awesome piece! Can you tell about your finishing job on the board? I l love the multi colored stain, and the raised lettering/hibiscus is incredible! I've been wondering about a place to include that flower...

I have been off line for a while - my modem got zapped in one of our fantastic summer storms - Wow - nice words to come back to thanks Harro, Hewey, McTiki, Palmcity Tiki, gman, surfin tiki, Doubravsky and Mooneytiki and of course Ben.

Basement Kahuna, I carve my stuff in Australian Gum trees because they are so common and are a good hardwood that doesnt split. I have not tried Mahogony and Ironwood. I try a piece of wood and it becomes a good tiki and we are friends or it splits and becomes a sacrifice in the fire pit at the annual luau (boy do we get a good fire happenin' with all the rejects).

I have used my downtime from tiki central to start painting again - I will post a picture of the finished product (or if I dont like how it turns out into the pit with the canvas).

I wish I was better at typing, so I could get onto everyones pages and give feedback - I am always checking out your stuff, but it would take me too long to tell you all how great your stuff is. So keep up the good work everyone.

I Like the board and Tiki. It looks like a trophy for a surf contest.

I especially like the way you carved it, it looks like it has real adz facets and the placement of them is excellent.

Great job. Thanks for posting.
