Thanks for the feedback guys. Well my friends were stoked with it in person. This is my first tiki sold. Hopefully it wont be so long before my next post with a new tiki.

Cheers
Grimbo

Very nice. It's hard to believe that is only your second tiki carving. You have a gift.

Those are all nice! Elvis Moai is a juxtaposition that never crossed my mind before but it works really well, someone just needs to hang some leis around his neck and he will be complete! Keep going your best stuff is waiting to be carved.

Thanks for all the positive feedback guys, it really keeps a person inspired. Finding the time to carve is the hard part. Just to clarify this is actually tiki nummber 4, number 3 is still in progress and I might have a bit of a head start as I'm a carpenter by trade.

Cheers
Sam

I've been working on this little guy on and off for a year now. It's about 7 inches tall, nearly finished just need to sand and finish him. Heaps more hours in this guy than my big Moai.

Cheers
Sam
