Nice chops!

Love the colors you've got going with your work!

And I echo the sentiments of the others... your detail work on the hands and the feet is sweet!

Bravo on tackling the Maple, that's some hard wood to carve.

Nice landscaping too, did you create the waterfall?

Thanks VampiressRn, you don't happen to work for DR. Acula? I will repost them soon. Lake Surfer, I did make the waterfall. I actually am planning to make a larger one in another part of the yard but I have to put on the breaks for a couple of years as my boys need a bit of space to run around (they don't like tropical jungles)

I finally got around to bringing in my camera to work. I am a teacher. I have shared some of my pictures with my kids. The class has always wanted me to bring one in. I decided to actually make one to keep in school. I hope to keep adding a little more each year. Some kids like to pat his head for good luck on a test.

Nice! I think you've just added to the pantheon of tiki gods. Could this be the god of Pop Quizzes?

Damn that's beautiful. We both carve hardwoods but your style really makes the grain pop!

Thanks amate: I really sanded this one a lot to pop out the grain.

Big T: I am not too sure how many of my students will be worshiping the god of pop quizes, although they might connvert should I suddenly spring a test on them!

I love how you bring out the different grains and add textures to your work. It adds so much depth and personality to your Tikis. NICE JOB!!!

Thanks Vampiress, tikibad and seeksurf. I thought I would repost some of the lost pics. This was the tiki that I made for parents as a christmas present. I will put in their backyard in the spring. In the meantime it is resting in my in laws living room (they told me they might decide to keep it!)






here is a new guy I am working on. He will end up as a matching bookend for a similar one I made last summer. I intend to put each one on each side of the steps. It has been pretty cold lately. Today I got a nice break as it went into the 40's! (yippeekiyaa) I was able to get a lot more done. I will post the pics when I get the chance.







have a good week

Excellent stuff and getting better with each one! You Excel in the fine details and the hard woods you are using make that much easier for you.

The Maple is one of the Great carving woods for that reason and the Cherry is the,THE,Premier Carving wood for a carver who wants tight, fine detail, where the wood must be stable and hold the detail. It sands Super well and takes the most Excellent finish.

The soft woods are easy in some ways but you cannot get the kind of detail that you can with the hard woods
