Hey Now McDougal,

I knew that there must be someone else that is carving the small stuff. I've got the room for the big Tiki but no time. I've found that a good sharp knife and a small piece of wood fit in the pocket and can be used almost anywhere. Most of the carving that I do is blocks of tin for work. I've been kicking around a few ideas and may do a few pewter items for myself. Keep the chips flying!

here is a tiki i finished today, it's of da gecko in style, i hope da gecko don't mind but i had to try it as i love the style of this tiki. it's not up to Gecko standard i'm sure but there aren't too many people that can carve up to his standard.

first unstained







stained

How about a carving class at the next Hukilau for us neophytes? A little 2-3 hour Saturday morning/afternoon type thing.

I'd pay to learn from the Masters here.

Hey Now Jungle,

Nice Tiki! I like the two-tone staining. How do they look when they age a bit?

Tim

Hey Midway, these are burnt style. They are actually already aged, cured, dried 100%, otherwise I would've used a crane or tractor instead of a dolly to stand them up.

Hey Now JT,

Very cool! Do you burn them before or after (or both) carving?

Looking goOd Jungle trader! I use to use black spray paint to get a burned look, without the time it takes to actually burn, then i sanded away overspray. Nice job yet again Octane, excited about school starting... ha ha, just kidding, just waste your free time in the Oceanic Art section of the library and it'll be better than a tOga pArty. here's my little TiKi-"d" nEcklace, up on the 'ol ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3242763039&category=29460

thanks for the praise, and no i'm not looking forward to going to school as tiki carving time will be cut down by alot, it takes me about 2 days to carve a ash tiki from drawing to stain, but now it will most likily take a week, and that sucks. i will defenitly have to check out the library section, maybe get some good ideas and learn more about the oceanic region.

Jungletrader those tikis are cool, i like the burning technique it really makes the features stand out. i know what you mea on those cured palm logs, i think they lose 2/3 of their weight in water over a year.

Tikitony great looking pendent or neclace, good detail on such a small little tiki. i like the little skull he is holding

You're about the most prolific carver I've ever seen. If you transfer that to bigger tikis you could make some megabucks on this coast.
