Marcus,

That Easter Islander carving is wicked! What type of wood is that? What techniques did you use to create it? Man what a monster! Your work is superb. I wish I could afford one!!! How long did it take you to complete that big piece?

This tiki is carved out of coconut and stained in a jarrah coloured stain.
Octane - Yeah the 48 is the one with the cool opener on the hood. Shes a beaut! I miss her and cant wait to get her home - Thanks for the kind words about my stuff.
GMAN - The big guy was hand carved - ie chisel and mallot out of Australian Gum tree and it took me more than 200 hours - but I lose track of the time when I get into one this size it is such a labour of love.

I am heading over to Fiji next month and would like to meet up with some carvers over there - does anyone know any Fijian nationals that are into carving? Or can you point me in the right direction to get in touch with someone over there. Thanks

All feedback appreciated. More pics to come as I progress on this little fella.

Nice Tiki(s) I haven't carved a double yet (haven't carved a single either since June) That one is a great example sir.

Thanks for sharing

Thats a really nice carving. So smooth, will look tops when given a lick of stain.

I love the slight 2 tone in the wood. Very nice. Its nicely shown in the slice on the ground to the right in the bottom pictures.

Looks like you got a nice garden too, but I dont see many tikis there And wheres that website?

Ben - Thanks again for the inspiration and yes he does have some Attitude - will be posting more pics of him real soon.
McTiki - the doubles accidentally happen - at the beginning there is one and then all of a sudden another guy takes form - so no use resisting the flow - hope this inspires you to pick your chisel and carve again.
Chisel Slinger - I wish the pelican would lighten his load - he is going to be a heavy and a little awkward fella to deliver!
Sam - Bottoms Up!! Sorry bit rude of me didn't realise until they were posted that he was mooning only you - but your right he is!! hehehe
Hewey - Website yes I vaguely remember starting that blasted thing and still hammering away at it - good things are worth waiting for so I am patiently waiting for my mate to finish it- he unfortunately has purchased a chopper (classic old bike) but it is nearly finished - the website - not the bike. If you look over the top of the pelicans butt you will see a tiki disguised as a palm tree in the garden. I have a few tikis around the yard - these ones I have had to cement in so people wont try and buy them - havent done one for myself in a while as too busy filling orders - we are having our Tiki Beat Annual Luau at the end of October so if you send me your details by personal message will drop you an invite.
Palama Tiki - Thanks for your kind words - and you keep up your good work too!

Arh! I could have been going up there in October too! But my uni work is due then and I expect to be flat strap. Bugger! Seriously bummed, but already pencilling it in for next year.
