Well, since I'm the new kid in town, I'm not real sure about protocol. So I'll just jump in and post a few more of my pieces.

Thank you all for your encouraging comments. I've realized that I need to find some larger logs or get smaller tools. All I have in the way of chisels is two carpenters chisels. And yes TikiG, I like to keep things moody. The carvings seem to come to life in the dim light. In fact, it can get down right spooky around here late in the evening.

Big Tiki/Nomolos

I appreciate you compliments.
Photo#1- is oak
Photo#2- Elm in the foreground and sycamore in the rear
Photo#3- The wood was recovered from a brush pile. Judging by the bark, I'm fairly certain it is cedar elm.

I haven't found the time to start anything new but I feel I must post something or I'll lose my momentum. Here are a few more of my finished carves. The mask is 9 inches made of Sycamore. The Moai is 11 inches also of Sycamore. The head is 12 inches made of China berry. I don't recall how I got started making these heads but they seem to be popular and I get requests for them. So, my question is . . . can you put a headdress on a face and call it a tiki? I haven't seen anything quite like this during my short membership and wonder if this forum is the appropriate place for these carvings? I just ordered a copy of the BOOK OF TIKI but I'd be interested in hearing your opinions until it arrives. Thanks for looking.
