Been wanting to post this for some time now after I saw this here....
"You're the guy that stacks stuff"
That over simplifies what you do really, in fact to me it looks like you go
out of your way to do varied styles of tiki carving.
Lamps, clock like, bats, oars, Groups of tiki masks and more.
You even paint.
I would say that the whole staking tiki thing is a small part of what you do.

Oh yeah I forgot that you do really cool signage as well.
Keep up the good work Cy!!

Thanks pjc and MadDog, I like the eucalyptus a lot and started a few new ones. I've never encountered a stranger wood to work on, with bends, knots, splits, twists, and hardness that's hard to beat. Appreciate you checking in Marcus and Big T! Thanks so much TikiSkip, I like to mix it up to avoid boredom and drawing and painting helps my carving and vice-versa. I took Buzzy's comment as a compliment and also a keen observation that made me look back a bit, rather than charge ahead towards the next one. I realize that I like to stack things to tell a story, a bit more totem than tiki. Here is an update.
My son added the turkey feathers and beard to finish "Tom"

The last few weekends have been spent on "Monk". (because he's holy)

It is a piece of fir from my neighbor.

A little work along the way on this cedar stump.

Here is the euc I told you about.

The monk is very creative and 3D ... Who's the bodyguard?

Cy when I first saw "Tom" just now I thought it was a stingray fresh from the sea Turned out great, I'll bet your son is proud to display it. Funny how the title for a piece can influence your perception of it ~ when I see "Monk" I think he looks very tranquil.

PS - I rocked the green Frog Island t-shirt at LEGOLAND yesterday. They may call you soon for a Lego tiki

Will's head is about to explode. He's using all of his fingers and toes trying to figure out how much "extra credit" he's gonna give you.

amate that's "Lookout Lou". I wanted him to look sentry-like when I made him for my daughter back in 2005. He's been guarding my place for the last few years till she gets back from her internship in Florida this December. Thanks H10! Take your time Will. MDM you are right the color of the feathers are sort of blue-grey like a ray and it was cool to have my sonny- boy excited about it. Believe it or not I sketched out a lego tiki years back but haven't got around to building it yet. Aloha I've been trying to take out as much wood as I can on this one and still have it structurally solid. Cha-Ching.

I took some more wood out of "Monk". For some reason he always reminds to keep me tool sharp.




This is as close to a sunset I get 'round here, a beautiful October day in the 60s.

Looks like the monk is on a fast.
Carve deep...carve thin...
No fear.
