Hello hello, I'm new to this forum and to tiki in general.
Amate your work is very good.
I'm def. enjoying all the carvings I've seen so far and have a long way to go to see them all.
Maybe some day I'll give it a try with some carvings.
I do wood work but haven't carved as of yet.
Keep it up guys and gals. Later.

Thank you all and glad to see you enjoyed my little gag!
Will – I tried carving a frond and goofed it up. I went out and found another one so I’ll give it another try.
King L. – give the carving a go and I’ll bet you enjoy it. Since you do woodwork, I’m sure you have a bench chisel lying around and you can make your own mallet out of any scrap piece of wood about 3 inches in diameter. Welcome to TC.
Now for some larger things.
The marq is 22 inches. I’m to the point where I now consider 22” as a large carve.
The mask on the right is about 2 x 4 feet if you count the feathers and raffia hair. The other a bit taller.
Still working on getting that elusive smile. Now I have to learn how to carve a bee hive hair do!
“The Forbidden Zone”
I had to throw at least one gag in. This former 2x10 is now a 5 foot tall blue Kon-Tiki.

I just went through this entire thread and I'm shocked at your body of work. To say your prolific would be a major understatement. Being relatively new to TC (having taken a 10yr absence) I've been discovering some of the amazing work being carved and yours is a definite standout for me. And right here in Texas. SO cool!!!
The care you put into your work, the bodies, the countenances, the finishes, all are remarkable. Oh and the killer pics you do really make them pop. The Moai bust on page 3 is one of the best I've ever seen. It just doesn't get better than that. Also the mini marquesan mask (on pg 50? on the bottom) is the coolest. Alien eyes!! I can only hope to one day put out work with such quality work as yours. Thanks for the inspiration sir. Much respect. -Jay
