Thanks for noticing McTiki, Shiela was based on a rather frightening female. Always appreciate props from you Tom and Jeff and Poly thanks a lot as Walt Disney would be on my "People I would have liked to meet" list.

I had a week off with lots of stuff to do around the house so what do I do? There are times when I love carving palm and think it's like cheating and 2 minutes later it seems like I'm trying to carve a mushroom. This one came about after a conversation with Will carve about how different a tiki comes out depending on if you start with a square or round blank. He suggested starting with a triangle (Why didn't I think of that?) Here is the odd result.
This is the start and decided to do the whole body triangle instead of just the head.

I used a piece cut out for a tiki-mask-shield.

I will let him dry out a bit then complete.

Different Hu ?
Ya know,
We need to credit AlohaStation for that.
Ask him about using the shape of wood
to enhance your carve.

No doubt Aloha is a master of using what the wood gives you.

Hi Cy, it looks like you live in a beautiful wooded area. Your tikis are very special and unique. It's fun to look back over your work. I hope we see you at Caliente, Wendy

Thanks Wendy I made a great decision to move from So Cal to Oregon way back in '76. I behaved myself pretty well at last years Tiki Caliente so am hoping Wildsvilleman will have me back.

Thanks pjc, the palm came from my bro-in-law from So-Cal about 3 years ago. You would think it would be good and dry by now but nope. I have done a few palm and really dig it but they mold really bad around these here parts and so I have to take them inside until I have a few coats of varnish on them.
Here are the other pieces of palm that I have done, Claude, Lombardo, Erroll, and Willard and Ben.
