Okay, here is a really dumb question but I just can't remember the name of the Palm Tree that is most commonly used to make tiki's?? Is it a Queen Anne Palm, King palm?? Thanks.

A couple of just for fun tiki's. Decided to try a few new things and different body positions. The first one is made from Spalted Ash. Not fun to carve through but a nice challenge with the little holes showing up where you don't expect them. Has little holes through out that give it some character and nice black lines. Finished with clear poly semi-gloss. The fin on the top is for my wife and Jimmy Buffett, fins to the right, fins to the left. Turtle in relief on the back of the head piece.



Second tiki to come in a few.

That Basswood is fun stuff. You can get a lot of detail and it takes stain really nicely. MORE!

Thank you all for your praise. Watango basswood is probably the easiest to carve. Thin grain, resists splintering and holds small detail. The only thing you don't get with basswood is color of any kind. Surfintiki, Big daddy, Benzart, AlohaStation, Watango thank you for the kind words. Coming from you guys it means a lot! Happy carving!

WOW! Excellent carving Tikilizard! How did I miss this topic! this ocean deity (is what has a name?) is full of nicely detail, greatly executed! I like so much the dorsal spine, she look very smooth and sharpen. Here is a lengthy process, you know how much time did you spent on it?

Thought I would add some progress shots. Before the dorsal spine, crown and scales where cut in. Webbed toes and fingers are just rough outlined as well.
LLao Jia I have been working off and on for a few months. A total of about two weeks worth of 8 hour days. I am a slow carver. The name of the one deity is Ngorieru and the other is just referred to as a Marine deity. Both from the Solomon islands.
