Hi all!!!
Went down to lakeland this weekend to finish up a project I've been working on down there.
Figured I'd post some pics since I been slackin so bad.
This guy is in a stump still rooted and concreted into a patio area.
The owner will be building a table around him at about waist hight (on the tiki).
Height is about 8 feet although I never did actually measure it.
No lower body, but two faces, back to back joined at the elbow on both sides.





And I was looking at this guy again, just wanted to share one more pic of him.



Lovin all the great work goin on round here!
You guys rock!!!
Thanks for looking, lemme know what ya think.

laters,
Tyler

Way to bring it on! Looking good. Double face tiki.
I really like the small guy also. He looks tiki Indian.

Thanks to all for the kind words!!!
Hope to get back to some bone carving next weekend with a little luck.

Scott, T'Ville & Kino, I really enjoyed this size myself. In fact I'm curious if anyone has any advice on going larger. The spot that hosts wake-boarding events down here has had me carve on site at a couple of events now & they have a stump from a tree they cut down they wanna know if I'll carve for em. Catch is its an old growth hickory tree & the "stump" they left to carve is 17 feet tall. I'm interested, but holy cow, how do I get up there?

Seeks, thanks bro, I did kinda feel like this guy was reminiscent of my grandfather's native style carvings. Looking forward to seeing something new from you, man. What's on your chopping block???

Later ya'll!

Hi all!

some great stuff going on around here.
I finally got around to finishing up the big Lono I started last year:



Also been playin around with this little guy:

I dunno, some marq influence? minimal features, not sure where he came from just havin fun

Couple of Moai:




And a group shot of the lot I'm taking out to the Jacksonville Boat Show this weekend:


Anyhow, good to see all the new carvers around here and all the wealth of information and technique.
Working on a couple of drums right now, looking for words of wisdom in that area.
Anybody got any advice on this adventure?
Nothing fancy in the carving department on these 2, couple of simple guys.
Got a couple goat skin hides on the way and no friggin clue how to bridge the tiki to drum gap.

Thanks for lookin ya'll!!

Aloha station, that ladder/scaffold/steps combination thing is still friggin crackin me up.

That big one in the hickory tree is on hold till sometime next year now, the guy who owns the property lost his father and is out in the mountains somewhere in the northwest dealing with it his own way.

So drums....



I'm pretty happy with the way these guys turned out, they sound outstanding.

They don't have the finesse of buzzy's Marquesas style drums but I like em.
Ended up stretching the rawhide and tacking into place inside the groove i carved into the rim.
Then ran a cord over the tack heads and tightened it down with a series of simple cinch knots.
Finally the natural fiber rope over the top just to give it a finished look.

Any suggestions for improvement on the next ones?

What's up fellow Floridian?

Very cool stuff bro. If I ever get up your way to surf "the poles", I'll have to check you out.

Hope the neighbor problem has leveled out. I had a problem with one of my old neighbors, basically because I was putting an old car together in my carport, and he did the same thing to me. The cops came out at 3pm on a Sunday to say the neighbor was complaining about noise, but essentially they couldn't do anything because LEGALLY quiet hours are from like 10pm to 7am. The cops even told me that I could make a reasonable amount of noise, and that hand tools were reasonable.

Then he called code enforcement and told them I had "a junkyard at my house" (which consisted of a completely running and restored 1965 Riviera, and a primer black 1948 Ford pickup that didn't run, but was complete). They came out and told me to put the truck out back & everything was cool.

So next time I saw my neighbor he gave me the stink eye and I pretty much told him to suck it.

He moved within 6 months, and all my current neighbors are cool (a few free tikis helped).
