Very nice carvings mate, you've got a nice style! Judging by the tatts, 60s hubcaps, vintage skateboards, and Dyno calender Im guessing you're a kustom kulture kinda guy - got any cool toys?

EDIT: How the f*** did I miss that you're an Aussie! Awwwwwesome! Is it your tikis that have been featured in some of Kustom Lane's shows?

Big daddy-thanks for take'n a look,I was stress'n
over the knot in his butt at first but was happy
how it looked in the finish.

Here's some pic's of some of my earlier carvings
most of my piece's are carved from gum tree[eucalyptus]
with what ever else that I can get my hands on thrown in as well.








Cheers Watango.

Watango, What a Super group of tiki you have. Nice work and your Moai are exceptionally clean and smoothe. That Gum looks as hard as the Eucalyptus we have around here, but Beautiful too. I'd Love to see more shots of your whole tiki collection there, there are lots of cool pieces there.

Welcome to TC - and not before time for you to get your stuff onto this forum - you will find everyone very welcoming, positive and helpful in all things tiki (and even other stuff). Enjoyed having a few drinks with you at wintersun last year - are you making your way up for wintersun again this year? if so give me a call. Your carvings have come leaps and bounds since we first started talking - if I can be of any help to you please let me know. If I dont get to catch up with you at Wintersun then I will be in Melbourne towards the end of the year for the Tikibeat exhibit at Kustom Lane Gallery. OK get back to carving.

Benz-Thanks heaps for the comps,It's a real buzz to get
the nod from ones peers.I carve my piece's pretty much
by just chisel except for the odd cut here and there by chainsaw.
The moai's are a differrent story tho,the moai that you see on the bar
was carved out of pier posts that were removed from the southbank wharf
in Melbourne and have been in the water probably around 150yrs judging
by the hand beaten forged spiked ends that were still attached.I could
dig up a photo if your interrested.this wood is like stone and for these
I use a carba-tec arbotech disc (really scary)to rough out then lots of
sanding which drives me insane but worth the effort.I'll post some photo's
of my tiki collection for you soon but seeing this is the carving thread
I'll just slip em in here and there.

Marcus-Thanks for the welcome and yeah your right this was long overdue,
the responce so far has been great.Had a kool time at w/sun last year
hang'n out with you and Bob and hope to be back again this year if I can swing
some time off work.I have got afew questions for you ut they can wait as Im runnig
out of hands(this typing stuff wears me out)I'll keep ya posted on w/sun.
Cheers be in touch.

Big daddy-Glad you dig the moai I'll post some pic's of his over side
he's really opened up heap's but like you, I think this mkes him even kooler.

Here's some pic's of my carving shack and some more tiki shots
thanks for taking drop'n by.Watango

Glad you dig my stuff Hewey,I've still got a 5'ft piece of the wharf
left so I'll probably do another moai.As I've said w/sun still depends
on whether or not I can get the mon/tues off work as I mainly want to
see the 2 LA bands which are play'n on the Monday night.So hopefully
if the good lords will'n and the creeks dont rise we'll all be able
to meet and knock back a few beers.Watango

Love your Carving Shack, LOTS of goodies in there.
To make that Arbortech a lot easier to control get yourself a Good "Router Speed Control" to slow down that scary disc and make it safer at the same time. When you do get one, Don't get the cheap Harbor Freight type as they have No Torque and really limit the power. The good one has an aluminum housing and much better electronics. Try it You'll Love it I Promise.
GO HERE for the best price up here and go for the Blue one.

Wow, great chops over there, and that's a classic basement o' fun down there! Skate decks n' all!
Don't they treat those pier pilings with tar, or some stuff? Not too good for inhaling when sanding. But, man what an effect that Moai gives!
