Ok... I'm no longer a lurker, well, on this board anyway.

I have been carving a few Tiki Sculptures in my spare time and was wondering if anyone might want to comment on them and maybe offer suggestions on improvements or style. (I already have a day job BTW).

I hope the link below works...
http://67.8.96.171/7tikis/

Putting a link there sure is a lot easier then loading all these carvings up in my jeep and toting them over to friends houses ... This internet thing may catch on eh?

Also... congrats on a great board! TONS! of interesting information and contribution.

Nice tikis 7tikis. I have yet to carve one with the roots still attached. In fact I have my eye on a few in the neighborhood, just need a crane to get it out, it's 3 ft. wide and about 7 ft. tall excluding the roots. It's been cutoff at that height for a few years so it might be dried out and very lightweight. I've already claimed it and the owner of the house doesn't even know it yet, hehe. JT

Welcome aboard, I like them all! Especially the ShellTiki. And the way your depth of carving the mouth and nose on PoleTiki and I forgot the other ones name. And I disagree with Gecko Tiki with all the palm left. It's different than most do. No offense Gecko-LOVE your work! Question?- Has anyone made a root palm tiki into a fountain? We're planning on trying one but probably take many since being our first carving. But having the mouth as the fountain part. We wanted something like that for our pool.

I like! ...Looks like each one gets better and better. Your first is certainly better than my first try! My first carvings were disasters. I had a problem with the infinitecimal patience and care it takes to really get a good one done. Looks like you have a cool experimental knack, too.

Dude your so in the club. I cant imagine how awesome a Tiki collaberation by you and Gecko would look. In fact a pole done by all the carvers on tc would be a big ticket item for sure.

Wow...
The hits keep coming...

DivyChic - I've seen exactly what you are describing somewhere on the web... a fountain tiki with water coming from the mouth... hmmmm.

Tiki Royale - it doesn't show very well in the pic but sleepy tiki actually has a small palmetto bush growing on the right side of the root ball, and some smaller (but very green) weeds sprinkled around the ball.

Chongolio - funny you would mention that, I was wondering if there would be an interest in a "Carvers Corner" section of the bulletin board, where amatauers like myself could exchange tips / tricks or share design ideas.

I doubt the heavys (Wayne; Crazy Al or Don) would participate, but maybe there's others besides myself that would like to share ideas and techniques.

Then again... maybe not

Thanks again to all those that have contributed to the thread. I'm most appreciative of your comments.

Here is the link to a thread started a bit ago.

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=1605&forum=1&56

I am still workin' a way on my first big carvin. Its been wet here so my chippin ground are kinda swampy right now. I need to check my chisels for rust.

I am still waiting to get a good find palm log. I live in Ca. So I know there is one lying around here somewhere.
