Using up Norma Jeans Manzanita. Amy compliments my stuff with her own. (No comparison of course)


The grotesque nature of this wood calls for being adaptable and able to see what could be happening rather than try and make it happen. Get it to dance with you. Move with it!




Need to change your handle to Magic Mike! your work charms the women like none others!

Thanks for that one Brah! Yeah the Wahines like Tikis and I like Wahines so it's a pretty good deal all around.

Dances with with Manzanita.It is very close to that. Move with it, not against it.

This guy is 12 inches, Maori influnced. Has torch highliting, scrimshaw style face markings
He is awaiting finish at the time of the image. He has his teak oil and is curing out.

Finally the little Manzanita Maori is finished and cured. Tricia of Don The Beachcomber is doing the Honors of gracing my work with her looks.

He has the Maori influenced facial markings along wood features blended in for effect.
Teak oil finish, torch highlighting and natural colors. I've gotten some very nice compliments on him thus far

Nice to be appreciated! Most folks can't comprehend that a small work can take more effort than large one. Easier to move around though..., Thanks for the Compliment Brah!

Olive wood is not a traditional Tiki wood, but that won't stop me! It's beautiful stuff and has been used for Milleniums in Fine Art. Here is a very grotesque, Gnarled, twisted and Knotty branch section in which lies a Tiki. This is a dance. Move with it, not against it. You lead, if it leads, let it. Listen to it, coax it, don't force it. Sometimes these works turn out better than I expected..... Sometimes not.

We'll see hmmm?
