I like it Aloha- Tiki on a rope. Thanks Big T, this carve is proving to be a difficult one so I may resort to your idea instead.

"Tiki Kabob"

I was never happy with these individually so I skewered them together and added a base. I got the idea when I heard that this years' Tiki Kon here in Portland has a cannibal flavor.
"Tiki kabob 2"

This is from a plank of basswood. I inlayed a piece of glass that I have been working on also.
"'Ohiki"

I'm about ready to paint this hunk of cedar. He will come along with me to Tiki Caliente 4.

Here is the other side. He will have green highlights but mostly a natural look.
"Tiki Tree"

Finished this one.
"Surfin' Bird"

Still got a lot to do on this one.

bro, I swear your stuff gets more and more interesting.

Totally original style. Really cool stuff.

And Portland is a really neat town.

Cy,
You don't even need skill.
That's just a bonus.
Your imagination will pull your carves
through just fine.
also,
is your life there as tranquil as your pics suggest?

Trying to keep tiki moving forward pjc5150 and appreciate the nice post. We have trees, water, great beers and live music, to me Portland No Ka Oi. Yes Will this is what I moved from L.A. for way back in '76. Conga, Tiki Kabob 2 started out as just the small kabob part but grew from there. I've really been liking what you guys have been doing also. Thanks for the comments!

Here is the tasty little morsel from Tiki Kabob 2.

Thanks McTiki, I have learned a lot about finishing from all of you on TC and curse Grand Poobah for introducing me to that wretched substance called "sandpaper" but you know that stuff actually really works well. Clarita I appreciate the nice comments and I always have fun creating tiki.

I was thinking the same thing...only substitute the word mushrooms for juju. I believe this art must be coming from some sort of "altered state". I absolutely love it!

Of course strictly for spiritual or medicinal purposes only amate.

"Tiki Kabob 2" has changed since last week. I wanted to match the tomato red of the inlayed glass pieces so layered a brown, red and orange wood dye in Cabot's spar varnish than brushed and wiped off a gray stain.
