First off I would like to thank Palama Tiki, Gman, Benzart, Aaron's Akua & Manokoa for all of your support, guidance and inspiration. Also all of the other tremendous artist here on TC.
Here are some photos of my first five attempts of Tiki Carving:
#1 Moai




#2 Tiki Jim inspired "Tiki Moon"




#3 Moai "Necklace"

Here is my second Moai carving, looks strangely like the first even though I didn't use the first as a reference.




#4 Tiki 3.5" tall




He has a George Thoragood mouthful of teeth!

Halfway done I realized "No Split" in his front 2 teeth.


#5 Tiki 5" tall




Here is a photo of #1 to #4


Thank you again from all who have inspired and helped me. I welcome any and all suggestions or criticism!
Wesley

I'M HOOKED!

You've gotten a quick start, Moondance. All of these "practice" tikis of yours look like the real thing to me. Keep it rollin'.

Moondance,

Each and every one of those is incredible! I really like the biggest one. He's BBBBBBBad! Are you sure you haven't done this before? You're pulling our legs right? If not, then you my friend have the carving gene! Go get some big tools and lay into a 6' log brother, I bet you will really surprise yourself!!!!!!! - and all of us. Bring on the pics.....another tiki carving junkie is born!!

-Gman

I didn't think that this last one was finished so I added the tiki behind it that needed out. Is this normal, always thinking about carving Tiki's?? Please help me, I can't stop!!
Wesley

This guy only has an hour on him, so far.








I'll post the finished product very soon as I do Not know how to stop!

There is no cure , dont try to fight it . I always seem to look at my carvings and wonder about re-doing them.

Nice work.
