Glad you like Watango and Aloha Tex, and MDM! I have learned more from my Tiki Central friends then any other source and am happy to be a part of it. Guys like Will carve, Aloha Station, Tikiskip, Mad Dog Mike and Timbercove among others have given me great advise that I use every time I carve. Mike I thought I had that eye hook thing all figured out when my brother told me about wire that is wrapped in a bark- like substance but by the time I wrapped it around it was too thick to fit the tiki back on. I will now distress it like tikiskip suggested, or put the blow torch to it and see what happens. Thanks!!

This piece of noble is finished, painted in lime and rum flavored tones. "Punchy's Brother" be his name and is loosely based on the old Hawaiian Punch dude.

The front skull takes a few cues from the Kool-Aid man.


I feel extra credit is due for all the holes in him.

I like the green - gives him a zombie-esque vibe.

So interesting, it looks completely different from the front than it does from the side, like two different pieces, great carve.

Thanks Will and Big T, money in the bank! Aloha and H10 I knew I was taking a chance by painting him green, but after the initial shock I like him. A great observation hil, he does look a lot different from one angle to another. I have mixed feelings about the Marquesan I started.
It is a piece of doug fir.

The inspiration was a $1.99 thrift store find that has been hanging around my garage for the past year.

I started on the back.

The one tiki on my shoulder said "Try it, you might learn something dumb-shit", and the other said "Stay in your lane, fool".


Did a bit more on this old, untreated, telephone pole. He will spurt water.

This poplar plank is coming along.

Eventually it will be a standing lamp. Hope to have it completed by Tiki Caliente in another 5 weeks.

Thanks for advertising for me brother Jon, did you know he once discovered the fountain of youth but did not drink from it because he "wasn't thirsty"?
