Hiltiki - Doris is definately happier with her bathing suit than in the photo earlier on the page.

Will/ Grog - Thanks guys...you just made my day!!!

Jeff - I must confess that Im actually more of a beach bum than tikiphile. My idea of a fun evening out consists of a remote beach, good friends, an ice chest full of beer and some fat sea trout baking in a bed of hot coals.

yeah me too bro... I prefer post-punk & reggae to exotica, I couldn't care less about playing "dress up" for social events, and I'd rather be on my boat fishing & makin' tikis, or at the beach surfing than, well, just about anything...

so yeah, I think you need a surfboard bro! Like a big 10 foot nose-rider....

and yeah, we catch a lot of sea trout here as well.

it doesn't get much better than blackened trout.... mmmm....

carve on brother!

Will Im considering giving the Blue Moai a nose job. Maybe that will help.
Jeff I started surfing around 1967 but the arthritis in my lower back is getting worse every year so Im real slow to my feet. This may be the first year Ive missed in a while. I guess a 10 footer would help me get in earlier.
Ben the new stuff is a lot of fun so Im glad you are enjoying them. Im getting bored carving the same old things so Im trying to diversify. With that said, here is yet another Marq.

Your work is simply fantastic. The details you put on these pieces...not to mention that your pieces seem under two feet which makes the detail all the more impressive. I also always like your backgrounds

Thanks BT and GP.

Measureing in at 12 inches we have Carlos Danger.








I working on a picture frame for my friend from the land of cheese and beer.



I'm almost ashamed to post the fish I started after those great carves Jeff just put up.



Maybe I should stick with the fish I'm more familiar with.

Knock out post.

Danger,Danger,
Those things are getting really good.
Every thing is in the right place &
perfectly out of proportion.

The frame
Did you carve all those lil critters?

The fish
Jeff seems to be a natural at those fish, Hu?
Tell us about the one that got away,
it could be really good.

Will, I saw a program once that theorized exaggeration is what makes art so compelling. Your comment is a huge compliment. I plan to do more little guys with fat heads and big feet.
And yes, I am carving the Rongo glyphs. The piece started with the Bird Man corner blocks carved in relieve and the other glyphs were incised. I got carried away and started to change the glyphs to low relief carves. Im in too deep to go back now.
I was hoping someone recognizes that the Barfish has tiki teeth!

Great carvings Amate....love the fish that are popping up around here and your little fellers are wonderful.
The frame is cool too....the land of cheese and beer...sounds like it is coming to Wisconsin?

Thanks Conga
The frame is not exactly going north. My friend is from Wisconsin but currently resides a couple of towns over from me . I guess coming from the Land of Cheese and Beer and going to the BBQ Capitol of TX isnt all bad. Either waylife is good! Eat, Drink and be Merry!!!

hey hey hey... I like the fish!

they're fun pieces to do....especially if you're a fisherman..

it becomes much more personal... and there's just something about the "vibe" they give a place...

I kinda came to tiki through a different door than most. I don't really care about playing dress-up, "the scene", or the whole "hipster" deal in general... My love for the ocean and the "surfing/fishing" lifestyle brought me here... and I know that to a certain degree you are the same guy... I think you're gonna enjoy the fish brother.... keep 'em comin'...
