Aloha TC's,I've been a huge fan of this forum for quite awhile and thought it's time I joined in the fun.My interest in tiki started about 10 yrs ago after scoring my first piece of coco joes,so of course I wanted bigger ones so I put aside my obsession for monster models and got me some chisels and a mallet and as is my way just dove on in. Enough about me here's some photos of some of my carvings.[hopefully you'll be able to see them]







I have loads more photos including progress shots which I know you all like but have kept my first post pretty basic as my computer is sooooo slooow.Thanks for looking.Cheers Campbell

Nice stuff Watango, Can't wait to see more pix including progress shots as it seems you have learned a lot in a hurry.

Also would love to see photos of your tools and carving area.
Thanks.

Really nice stuff W. Nice finishes. More pics please. And hey, there's nothing wrong with monster models, I built my share of them in the 60's.

Howdy Tcr's,I've finally worked out how to drive this thing so here goes.

Sneaki Steve- good to see more Aussie artists on here, I've been watch'n
stuff and dig ya work.

Dr goat-Still dig'n the Monster kits but only when it's to cold in the shed.

Here's some progress pics of a couple of the pieces at the start of my thread.





Ran out of gas,so it was on to the fire for this fella.



Rear veiw after sanding but damm I didn't have a decent shot of the finished piece
so these I'll have to do for now.

And finally a shot of the shed for Benz,got to go so I'll post the
next shots asap.Thanks for look'n.Cheers Campbell.

Seeksurf-thanks for taking a look,I'm a HUGE fan of your thread
your carvings truly are amazing!

Here's some pic's of a piece that I carved for Appleton Estate
rum and now lives at their Melbourne office.This was my first corperate
commision so I was pretty stoked on this peice.








Then time for burning and sanding



followed by 1 coat of merbau decking stain and 1 coat of
western jarrah stain an varnish.



Finally a shot of him on the door at the Watango lounge!
Cheers Watango.
