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.
