Nice work!

Nice to see the carved panel. I'm starting on a couple of my own again... its fun to make 3D from 2D.

Nice stuff, the Maori looks great. But the panel really catches my eye...good stuff! No worries with the man who bailed off the canoe, he'll hitch a ride on the next panel ya do!

Again very nice work. You were born to carve. That much versatility this early on is superb.

Great tikis. The panel is very noteworthy and well done, even with the man-overboard. I hope you post more progress shots as you finish it up.

Hey TC, thanks for the glance at my works in progress. The maori carver (yes, that is supposed to be an adze in hand!) is about finished. No more carving on him, just some coats of tung oil for the final steps. The war canoe panel is basswood and should cut like balsa compared to the maori made of brown cement!

Lake Surfer- Relief carving is a nice break from carving in the round. I dig it! Thanks for the comps on the canoe panel. I can't wait to check out some of your panels too!

Benzart- I really appreciate your input on the maori carver piece. Now I know that the tiki gods are smiling down on us!

Surfintiki- Throw the guy a life preserver if you see him! Not sure if I should glue in a piece and re carve him or leave him be?? He is off with the sharks I think.

Basement Kahuna- I guess you can say that I have the carving addiction...can't get enough! Thanks for the inspiration and keep carving, especially those amazing weapons!

Johnny P- More pics will be coming soon. I usually carve at night but the neighbors are getting pissed! Took the night off to smooth things over. This weekend they get the sweet sound of CHAINSAW!

Cheers, Beachnik

goddamn!, some talent!. I can not believe the talent hidden in that gentle, quiet dude. I am so glad you are carving , what a waste it could have been if you had just "retired".Keep on making sawdust. Peace. TWT

The only retirement I want is from my day job! Carving all day is what I'm talkin about!! Palm stumps, saw dust and rum...yea.

Twowheel, thanks for the comps. You know, the beast comes out when the chisel and mallet are in hand. I live for this stuff!

Tiki Duddy, hope you score some good logs and I'm looking forward to checking out your tikis. Welcome to the tiki madness and thanks for checking out my current projects.

Beachnik

Been a long time since I had a post. Feels great to be back to TC. I was sidetracked for 6 months due to a move, new business startup, and the general daily mayhem we all encounter. I am so bummed that I missed a chance to meet some awesome carvers down in San Diego this past October. I just saw the thread and pics...what a great time the bunch must of had! I'm sure the pics only tell half the story!

I must say that the tiki spirit is strong as hell, and a day does not go by that I don't think about the next tiki to carve.

Here are some pics of a commission I just bubble wrapped and delivered to one happy soul! The tiki is 6 ft, made of palm, heavy as hell, stained for some shadow, and 3 coats of poly for durability. This is my first piece since last June.

More to come and I will post new pics as they become available.

Once again, glad to be back carving!
Beachnik

Nice chops again Beachnik... good to see ya back at it. It is a disease alright... I've tried to take more than a couple months off and broke down... found a mallet in my hand again carving another piece of wood. Great classic look to this one, the new owner will be proud!

Welcome to TC. Excellent panel work. I have only tried one and it wasn't 10% the quality of yours sir.

I know we can relate as I quote..."Palm stumps, saw dust and rum...yea."


Brilliant
