Thanks for the comments hil, H10, and BT!! I've had a few snow days off the last few weeks, all the better to forget about actually making a living and instead create some fun making tiki.
Damn the Maori.

Love their design but too much work.

The way I figure they had a crew of professionals that could work 24 hours per day to do all that detail work, am I wrong?

More Maori design, this one on a beauty Sawyer paddle.

Here is the mate.

Thanks friends for the encouraging input, I always use it for fuel to proceed forward!
Starting with some quick sketches, I enlarged them on my copy machine, carbon copied onto a Home Depot purchased plank of poplar, then jig sawed the outlines.

I am concentrating on smaller, quicker carvings this year to help with gas money to get to Caliente and Oasis.

They will have fabric backgrounds and be back lit.

Even a Ku!


Still waiting for 50 degree evenings so I can paint these that are about finished.

Another that I forgot in the group photo.

Trying to stay interested in carving H10, thanks! Been having some fun on these smaller pieces.

"Murph"

"Hatch"

I used a flickering LED bulb that Tikiskip posted about for the bottom, hollowed out section of this piece of redwood. Although it is staccato rather than random in rhythm it gives off a cool flame-looking glow.

Thanks H10, I like to tell myself that progress abounds on Frog Island, and here is an update.
"Nemo" with a bunch of blue and orange dye.

"Many Menehunes." A mahogany stain to the top and bottom, just clear in the middle.

An assortment that will pack into my van for the journey to Tiki Caliente.

Hang 10, Caliente is right around the corner, thanks Will, I struggle a bit with adding color, hil we can do some "bundling" as that American Picker guy says.
Finished these by adding dark brown into the deeper recesses, just like will carve learned me.

A combo of dark and clear stain.

Here are the smaller, backlit poplar pieces.

This is cedar that was milled about 40 years ago.

And lastly an alder branch with a cannibal flavor.

Fork.

Knife.

Spoon.
