Hey guys long time no post. I did manage to finish something up.

That last big tiki was a blast to carve.

"I don't know how quickly he got it done - but it sure did turn out nice. Its awkward carving something while laying on the ground. Proportions and angles are totally wacked. How did you stand it up?"

Aloha was right, the large tiki did take about 8 weeks of odds and ends of time on weekends to finish up. How did it get in place? A backhoe with a chain had to lift it into place.


Here is the slit gong I was working on last winter completed. Somebody saw this piece half completed in my garage and had me finish it up.



















Thanks for looking and I hope to be able to carve more often now....

Johnny, I think you need to go to PNG and show those guys how to carve those things.

Very cool log drum Johnny...good to see you back in the area again! Somewhere in your
family background you must have a little png blood. You are "the natural" at that stuff.

Awesome drum, John. I still have to understand how the heck you hollow those things out!



Gorgeous lady. Incredible art. You have some serious chainsaw skills my friend.

That must have been a pain in the butt to work on. Getting it in a position to carve it. I have enough problems with a small piece I can put on a bench...

Thanks everybody.

Since TC was down the other week, so I went to Eygpt Central.

Here is a new project. Not tiki, but definitely exotic. A mummy case loosely influenced by Tut's. This was a request from my wife, just to make the house a tad bit more different.

Carved from one log, split and hollowed out. 82 inches tall. You can even lay down inside. And it is taking way too much time.

Did the wife ask you to make sure you can fit in it?

I couldn't stop laughing as I read these quotes!

That is really nice detail in the drum and the mummy. If the missus puts you in there make sure to evoke the Pharaoh principle and take the drum with you
