Q2: I will post pix as soon as I lern how to post them (I´m a computor retard):D If anyone ask for me I´ll be in the test-room for three more weeks...!

Q3: Glad you ask! The answer is ASK! Have no clue what it´s called in the states, ore if you have it there.It´s very smooth and has not to many branch´s. I like it alot!
(Ok, looks like It´s called ash?) ore (Fraxinus excelsior)

I checked out your website. You are right the tikis speak for themselves. Good Job. That last one has quite a pile of chips behind it. I'd guess it is all hand work, no powertools?

Yes, I´m goná look like Arnold when I´m done!
To bee honest I was not awere of how long it would take, to carve a tiki that size....But I sure feel stronger now!

Here´s some smaller ones. (the size is ....as a short mans arm...)

Most of my tiki-designs are a mix of what I seen on TC. And of course The Book of Tiki.


This one is concrete.
