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.
