That is beautiful...I like how you let the wood speak to the shaping. Nicely done. Keep meaning to say that I dig the color of your backyard wall.

WOW,Tuscon, this guy Really finished up Nicely. I Love the tongue, a totally unexpected piece of detail that looks so Wrong but fits the whole piece so Perfectly. I Like your style.

Thanks for the positive input Benzart and Seeksurf and the others.Coming from talented carvers such as you guys that means alot. I was a lil' worried about the tongue. I almost deleted it but decided to let it ride. Wish I would have made it a little bigger in proportion. Live and learn for the next I guess. Well, Back to the front courtyard to let the dust fly. Carve on.

Decided to bang out a short tiki for The 4th Ave. Street Fair this weekend here in Tucson Arizona. I am taking my last 3 down to try and sell them. This one posted here was just a 2 day quikie for the show. A local tiki shop is letting me display my stuff so I can get some publicity. Here is my sad face guy. I will show finished pics tomorrow. It was too dark to get a photo when I finished it up, Dig-TT

Wow, your last couple of pieces have been so fantastic. You are really developing your own style already. Love the coloring and finish on the big head tiki. The whole carving is really really nice. The green one was a little loud for me, but the carving and style was tops. It's still a great piece and I see you're willing to explore and push some boundaries. Bravo!

Thanks again, I put a little burn on it and some finish. I got some hotrod stuff. Been doing it my whole life it seems. Carving is a nice creative release away from the car stuff. Here a picture of the 29 Ford RPU that I built a few years ago. I will be going to Viva Las Vegas here in a few days. That's always good for inspiration and a hangover.

I'm back in business carving up a few new groovy numbers for your viewing pleasure. The first is a little chunk of palm I had laying around and wanted to try a funky shaped wacky planter for my courtyard. Had some old hairpin 50's legs that I haved saved for such a project. Turned out pretty cool. It's reallhard to carve out the tops of the log. Anybody got any ideas for hogging out the centers easier than using a spade bit like I did? The next is one I whipped up over the last couple of days. Kinda a goofy lil'happy guy. This
stuff just comes out of head. Enjoy!

Thanks Mark! Did I get your number? Can't remember a damn thing. Nice meeting you at the antique fair. We will hook up for sure. We need to gather all the local tiki nuts.. When my place gets to a point I can entertain I will. Dale
