So yesterday I started carving a partner for the flat Marq. It's not done yet, I just burned it to 'see' it better. I want to tweak it some more to make it more obviously female. When I do, I'll post a pic of the two side by side.

I reworked the female a little today.
Here's a pic of Mr. and Mrs. Wallmount Marq.


The concept was to carve two tikis that would work as 'indicators' of the Men's and Women's restrooms in a tiki bar. Hope they're obvious without being too obvious!

I got commisioned to carve two stumps in Carlsbad. They were two fan palms at the edge of the sidewalk, and were cut ~4 feet off the ground.
Here's where I'm at after carving Sunday, and a little today after work, still in the roughing out stage.


I'm not happy with the way it looks now, but I hope to improve it some, and have it done by Sunday, then start on the second.
The next one will be a Marquesan, which I love to do. This Ku style is not my strong suit.

Love the Restroom signs,, Perfect and Excellent detail.
Also love the stumpy KU, Excellent job, especially with so little to work with. 4 feet sounds like a lot until you start adding girth and soon it gets into the small category. Don't be so publicly critical of your work, it just opens the door to unnecessary and Unwarranted criticism.

Hey Bill, your newest work looks great! I gotta tell you, I've been a big fan of your work ever since I ran across your website about two years ago. I especially like the tiki that your standing next to in one of the pictures on the website. Thanks for the inspiration, keep those big tikis coming.

Wow, thanks you guys for the positive comments! I worked on it some more today, and I'm pretty happy with the way it looks now.


Tomorrow I start the second tiki, and I'm doing it Marquesan, so I'll have an easier go on the carve.

Very cool Bill, glad to see you're keeping out of trouble. And your toilet tikis are WAY better than those goofy little icons.
