Aloha Fellow Carvers
After talking to Aloha Station at Hukilau for longer than I probably should have. I decided to post some of my tiki carvings.
I've been lurking for a few years but a few months ago I thought I'd try my hand at carving. Here's some pics of my work.
The biggest one is my first Tiki carving
The pic above is my newest shifter head
Marquesan front view
Marquesan side view
Even tried my hand a pendants
And the link for my flickr site.
This has more before pics of progress and some of my other crazy tiki stuff
My bodys in the south but my mind is in the South Pacific............ALOHA

They're all terrible. Please don't show us any more.
Just kidding. Those are amazing! How long have you been carving? You say a "few" months. Does that mean like a few thousand months? Very nice.

Seeksurf: Thanks. I still need to finish his head. Just tring to decide if to keep with the jungle theme or something different.
Finkdaddy: Thank you also. No I just met Swanky in Jan 09 and I had only carved my first Tiki a week earlier. But I did sculpt three Tiki shifter knobs for Jimmy Flintstone in 2006/2007. But carving is a bigger challange for me. When I sculpt I can always add more not so with wood. One mistake and you've got fire wood.

Fantastic work! I really like the detail you have put into your carvings.
The marq is my favorite. Keep carving and showing them off here.

Welcome to the ohana. It was great talking with you at Hukilau (my voice worn out by Saturday). The whole weekend was overwhelming but one of the highlights was meeting with you and seeing your stuff. How is it I didn't get one of yours?? Your stuff is fantastic and will only continue to get better the more you do AND SHOW! If there are more guys out there like you I may take up carving birds or bears. I spent Sunday on the coach going over everything and saw your card. PM's/emails to come.
Again - welcome and keep posting!!
