Great log.
Good story.
Convenient hole thru it.
Pile of detail, too.
As Tom would say "good start".

Makemake looks great Cy - always thinking outside of the box! So you climb down sharp rock cliffs, swim across shark infested waters, collect the first sooty tern egg of the season, swim back across shark infested waters, climb up sharp rock cliffs, and present the egg to the elders. And what do you win for this feat of courage? Rights to all the island's virgins? No, you get to grow out your fingernails, live in seclusion for a year, and have all the tern squabs you can eat ~ no thanks

Thanks Skip, pretty sure anything bigger won't fit as I am at the limit and can't carve any deeper. Maybe you can use as thin a netting around it as possible, but if I can't squeeze it in I will keep the red and put the blue in the bar instead. MadDog I have been thinking the same thing and would have just been a spectator at this event. (Someone has to stay around the village and protect the women) Jeff glad I could give you a little inspiration as you have to me. Really like the black pieces you got going and am thinking about doing one myself.

Darn,
Have never seen a blue globe that size.
I can do one that same size in green.

Thanks brothers of the tiki carving tapa cloth. I have been working hard to bring some new wood next weekend for Tiki-Kon here in Portland but I will have to settle for "works in progress" instead. This four foot piece of cedar has gotten most of my attention.



This is "Margie," a related piece of cedar that is also insect ridden on the inside. I worked about 15 minutes hollowing out the head and chain sawing a few details before giving up as being too far gone. After looking at it for a few weeks I decided it might be worth going back in.

This is how these two pieces are related and how they grew together.




I will try to complete these two for Tiki Oasis.

A customer/ landscaper pal of mine can actually grow some kind of palm here in Oregon. He gave me this one after it sat in a bit too much water. I have no idea what it is but it has a wooly mammoth sort of skin that I will certainly incorporate into the design.

This chunk of driftwood has been in my barn since I moved here in the mid 90's. I am imagining a mask of some sort.

I wonder if those 2 logs would miss each other.
Kinda makes you feel bad to separate them.
That fish is the bomb.
