Grand Poobah, Shrunkentiki and McTiki,

Thanks for the comments, I'm hoping the tiki I started last night will be better yet, it'll be a little larger at about 12" tall, and I should be able to upload some photos tomorrow, didn't take time last night to get any...Didn't get real far on it, working with X-acto knives again, really need to get some tiny chisels...

Mahalo!!

Hello,

Long time, no see...I've been slowly working on some tikis, the one here I've been on for about a year, started out with X-Acto knives, then switched to some Flexcut knives, then the best switch after talking to Benzart, to a Warren Cutlery handle and hook blade...I don't get alot of time to work on carving, so this has been slow, but it's going well, this one is from Pine, a funky branch from a tree we cut down in our yard, curves several directions, which I tried to incorporate into the design...Modeled after a tiki at Pu'uhonua O Honaunau...Hope you like it...Approximately 16-18 inches tall, 1.5 inches wide...

Aloha,

Paul

Thanks Jeff...Hopefully I'll finish it sometime in the next few months...I have a few other things going too though, so I jump back and forth between them all when I get time...

Paul
