My recent stuff from 2010.

37.5 inch (in) Screaming Marq with Moai Skull





A 5 foot (ft) Palm version of one of Bosko's Cook Island Redwood carvings (I love this design).





2.5 ft "MerTiki IV"






"Bone Tiki" Curved Palm trunk, Clear Cedar Bone, 39.5 in








Nearly 4 ft is "Vert"










Thanks for looking!

Mahalo!

McTiki

McTiki, I've always dug your work. Nice to see all of your recent stuff here together in one spot! Maybe you'll inspire others to get on the ball and start carving again?? New Year's resolutions right around the corner...

Really nice work, McTiki.
May I know how much time did you spend on the Tiki "Vert"?

Update time!

thank you for the compliments! Yes Wendy, as you know by now.....lots of sanding, and yes, they all get sealed with either a Matte, semi gloss, or gloss Spar varathane coat or two, sometimes four.... lightly sanding or wooling between coats.

Some Newbs!































Thank you for browsing!

Mahalo!

I've been wondering where you have been and now I know. You've been off creating more wonderful tikis. I love the small ankles. Wendy
