I'm Back! A little sad to be at the end of my adventure and leaving all the great people and places behind - but happy to be home on my own soil and eager to pick up my tools and get stuck into some more wood - very inspired by all the tikis I saw over in the States - I will make a new thread with photos of my trip real soon. Thought I had kept you all in suspense long enough so here are some more photos of my Maori tiki.

I could'a Sworn I replied to this post yesterday, further proof I am losing it (what ever it is/was?) This tiki looks like another humdrum piece of perfection we have to put up with seeing from you. Now if only I could figure out how to get this hum-drum kind of look Marcus, then I would Truely be the master. Your carvings look so authentically, traditionally, perfect that I can't stand it. I think you need to publish a Coffee Table book of all your carvings and I get dibbs on the first copy...SOLD.
Will you send mepictures of ALL your carvings? I just Have to learn how you do this..
