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.
