Welcome aboard!! I'm up here in sunny Queensland, it sure is awesome to see another Aussie join the forum. I'm loving your carvings! Hewey and I will have to think of some kind of excuse to travel down to Melbourne Sweet mug collection as well! I'm trying to grow mine but at the moment I've only got a small handfull of mugs - I either never see them or if I do see them they are WAY overpriced.. I saw a generic peanut mug for $165 the other day!!

WOW, Nice Chops. Great looking Tiki's. My hats off to ya for carvin Eucalyptus. I have carved some of that myself. It's very hard wood, but it holds the detail well.

Keep up the good work!

Liana-Hmm sunny q/land!It's start'n to get pretty darn chilly
down here.Glad you dig my tiki's.Kustomlane will be having a
tiki show later on in the year feature'n Marcus Thorn,myself
and whole bunch of tiki related stuff so there's your excuse
for a trip down south covered so dont forget to pack ya woolly's.
As for the mug situation I started collecting them quite a while ago
when you could buy stuff on evilbay for ok prices as well as atrip
to the states back in 04 where I snapped up as many as I could carry
but with the value of our peso and the cost of ship'n I dont buy to
many these days.

tikimecula-thanks for the comps,not many fan palms round here so carv'n
gum trees(euc) is my eqivalent as there everywhere.

Alohastation-your right this site is great.Cheers

Gman- Thanks for stop'n by and check'n out my stuff.

BigT-This ones carved from spotted gum,hard as stone.Glad you like.

Mudbone- the shrunken head on the wall is made of plastic and came on a
string with 2 more and a bunch of bones that Ipicked up at a carshow.

Cheers Watango

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.





Greetings from Florida, I really like this peice, alot of detail going on, you also have a nice little shed to do your work in, very nice.. was thinking you were southern Cal., or Florida by the looks of the land, was suprised it was Australia. keep up the good work, and happy carvings..
