Nice carvings!! I really like the second one you did modeled after the book ends, nice...
I'm going to put a wanted add on craigslist to find dome logs, preferably coconut but I'm not going to be picky, also the green dump is a great place to look, although I have not had any luck the last time I went..

My favorite one is the open-mouthed one at the beginning of your thread. I can imagine seeing that in the middle of some island jungle, watching over a forgotten temple.

Aloha!

Why the name Chetiki I'm curious (something to do with el Che, or are you porteño)?
Aloha!

Excellent looking detail on your tikis Chitiki, it's great seeing you take your time and keeping them crisp.
