Welcome to TC Saxotica. That is some first tiki! Most don't try a full body right off the bat, so you must be a "type A" tiki carver. We must see more tikis from you ASAP. Thanks for ceasing to lurk and joining the group. Where are you from?

Thanks for the fast reply ! I'm just outside of Athens, Ga. I'm working on a 5 footer right now that I think is going to be cool. It's a lot more complex. I got inspired by the work of a lot of folks here on TC but mostly by Basement Kahuna.

Welcome to TC, as you enter with a Bang.
Well just look at that "First" tiki. Another excellent example of what happens when a tiki-but gets inspired to carve a tiki. Way cool. Nice "Extras" detail like the neck and ankle adornments. Can't wait for # 2.
You don't have to wait until its finished to post pic's because we Love those "in progress" shots..

That is a good 100th tiki. They don't have to get better than that one. Most tiki look like something else made, but this one looks original and nice at that. I like how the body isn't all small. I don't like the small bodies cause it makes the tiki look feeble and head heavy. Keep tikis like this coming anytime.

Thanks for all the kind words. I have spent hours and hours here looking at all the outstanding work and it is very inspiring. I finally got the BOT. Here's Tiki #2 that is in progress. I really want to develop my own style that is still "in the tradition". Thanks to everyone who have shared their work here on TC.

This one looks petty cool too. Where did you learn how to carve and what else have you carved. Looks like you have some experience or training lurking back there somewhere.
Nice

Well, no training that's for sure. I've always fooled around with making stuff. I carved a Queen out of a cedar log one time 20 years ago and I carved a jester once out of a pine 10x10. I carved a couple of Santa Clauses and some fish. I tried my hand at stone carving for a while back in the 80s...some heads and some gargoyles. I accidentally stumbled onto this web site and got inspired. I need some tools; I only have one chisel [a Stanley] By the way Ben, I greatly admire your work. To me, you, Basement Kahuna, Gecko,and Lake Surfer are my favorites and I LOVE Heather Watt's paintings. I'm sure I'm leaving out a bunch of folks. I can't believe how much killer stuff is on this site.

Damn! As far as I'm concerned, you've already met this goal. You apparently have "The Gift." These are outstanding pieces of art.
