So I had this old tree lyin' 'round the house...
And inspired by all the great carvers here on Tiki Central I thought I would try my hand at carvin' a Tiki...
I got an old chainsaw from dad...
Sure was a lotta wood chips...
The cat was curious...
Close up of some of the wood chips...
Here's a bird I saw in a nearby tree...
More wood chips...
My first tiki!*
End of a long day...
Thanks fer lookin'! I'd appreciate any feedback and comments!

Woofmutt, was that first carving of the look on your face when the tree fell? Looks like one of those Big Foot fellas.. I know it still must have been a lot of work to get it looking good. I can't wait to see what my first tiki will look like. Of course it probably wood end up in the wood pile with the other wood chips.. Wasn't this thing just up for sale? The wife didn't want it around?

Yes! I Loved the story too and the curious cat checkin it all out and the bird wonderin what you did to its nest? But the Chainsaw hand-me-down says it all.Was that shot AFTER you were done makin that pile of chips? Funny story depending on if you are from Texas or New Orleans
As for the carving if it weren't for the "Chicklet teeth" you could post this over in creating tiki, but alas he will be forever banned to the halls of bilge. However after looking into the tiki carving section he may well fit right in! Excellent tiki there mutt. Try to work more on the traditional side for the next one. Now that you are a seasoned carver, there WILL be More, Right??

i believe that is the florida-style sasquatch... i am sure that there are many people who would like to buy such a sasquatch, but around here we prefer the classic midcentury sasquatch. i would suggest you look at the offerings of appalachian arts, maybe read the book of bigfoot (BOB)

Beautiful work Woof!
those black beady soul-less eyes
make quite an impact on the viewer!
Here's a great movie you can watch for more reference!
it's one of my faves!
not much tiki in it tho....
i think you'll connect with the Travis Crabtree character....
he's got his own song/theme in the movie...

It is good to see such high-level talent from the tips of your fingers...we already know your mind is a sive. What about just using your feet to run that saw on the next creation. You are destined for cirque du soliel!!!

Haha Book of Bigfoot!!!! its a must read for any Bigfoot aficionado. Of course its good to reinterpret the real old stuff, but Im sure with a little practice you could come up with your own fresh interpretation. and g be a big splash on the modern Bigfoot scene I'm sure its the next big-thing for all the galleries.. When will the first Bigfoot mugs come out? will Bigfoot Farm be making them?

Boy you are not very observant his hands up there full of wood chips from his carving.
On a more serious note. Wow Woofmutt you are the best carver ever can't wait to see your next interpretation perhaps a Marq?
