Thanks for the comments. I've had some extra time latky so I've been able to bust these out, I just finished a new 4 footer today and should have pics tomorrow. It's getting pretty easy. Think I need to do a harder carve

Got around to posting some pics of the recent work.

Heres the fireman tiki. I never got a shot of it with the satin finish but you get the idea




Next i made a "chimney tiki"



You cant really tell due to the poor photo but its a dark red mahagony stain. It looks black in this picture though.



Here is an order i had for an alskan style totem pole. It was my first attempt but the customer was very happy with it.




Came out looking yellow from the light, but the color is actually white.

Claq, I'm Really loving your new designs and carves, The Totem is not as advanced as your tikis but after a few I'm sure you will see that change drastically.

Also these Corner tikis on your bar were Excellent and the Corner fit looks Perfect!

I dont think im going to do another animal style tiki. This was just an order that i had. He wanted a "cartoon" looking totem. It turned out to be alot more work then I expected, i have more then 15 hours invested in it. I think im going to stick with what i know! I got some new designs for tikis coming up, i just need to get ahold of some good logs. Right now all i have is a few queens and they might not even be any good anymore. Queens seem to rot rather quick if you dont carve them fast enough.

Well i got around to working on a couple of new tikis. Both of these were requested by customers. The first tiki I got the idea from a few different people on here and the second tiki was requested to look like a biker.










Handle Bar Mustache




I should have finished pics of the second tiki tomorrow.

Your carving has really progressed in a short period of time. That mustache sure is different. I know I went through a period when all of mine had eyebrows. Glad you having fun with it!!
