Hi,
I finally found the time to post some of my carvings.
So, here they are.

This was my first carving, a while ago. You might have seen it in another thread.




From left to right:
White coral sand from a Huahine beach in Tahiti.
My 2nd one, the yelling Moai,
#5, the Broken Tiki was only a stain test, but I couldn't let it go.




Next one is #4, which took a long time to carve, the more I waited the harder the eucalyptus wood got. Not fun to carve but my favorite so far.
My toddler calls it "Big HeHe"







I still need to finish couple things on him... but I'm almost done.
He's about 12" tall from head to toe.


#6, I still have to work on the stain.






#7, I needed a pair of cufflinks for a new shirt.




I'm working on a 2' Moai's head and will post it asap.

Thanks for checking out.

Tahitiki

Man, those are beauties! I like the Big Hehe a lot. I love your use of texture and curves. The stains and finishes you've used are top notch. Great stuff all around. Please "find" more time to keep us current with your work. Progress shots are always nice

You've made some really great small guys, your talent speaks for itself. Have you ever tried to go big? I would really like to see what you could do with a 5' log!

Dang...great clean lines and style. Job well done. If you have some pics during the process I'm sure we'd love to see em. Keep it up.

Thanks for the all the great feedback, I really appreciate.
I have some process pict somewhere, so when I get to find them, I'll start adding images.

GMAN,
No I did not try to go big yet, but I can't wait to do so. I'm trying to locate some palm wood or the prefect log. I would like to try a 8' log, but at the speed I'm craving it's probably going to take most of my life
Your last Maori is pretty cool.

LOKI,
I like your back alley, and can't wait to see the Marq done.

Basement Kahuna,
Thanks for the compliments. From your comment, I guess I'm going the right way.
I really like the... too much to list.

KAHAKA,
San Jose... Willow Glen? I'm close to ebay.
Cool lamps by the way.

Sneakytiki,
I like your Ritual of the Savage drawing.

AlohaStation,
Your stuff is really cool.

Tahitiki

Tahitiki, looks like you have done this for a long time. Beautiful carvings. It is not easy to get such precise, sharp detal, and you get it like it is Old hat. Excellent. I'll be looking for great things from you. Just keep up the carving. Thanks for sharing too.

Dig the uke-playin tiki.
When you decide to re-do that guy (or one like it) in 5-6 foot size - let me know.
That would look great at the Lagoon Lounge.
