Thanks BigT, I wasn't sure where it was going myself!

Cheers PJ, I've got to keep improving to try to keep up with you!

Welcome to TC Quinntiki and thanks for the props. I am attached to the carvings, they've all got names!
I will have to sell some sooner or later to make room for more though... I need to work out how much to charge without ripping myself off, ETSY might work, I know some people are selling there, postage to the US is pretty harsh though...

OK folks, here's a taster of the current project-





more pine, sigh...

What can I do with this??
Stay tuned ;]
Mahalo,

With Cy doing the bats maybe it's time to start a Tiki sports franchise McTiki? ;]

Did some work on it-





I thought this was pine but the grain is much finer...



I found another crappy frame to upgrade as well-



mahalo,

Hi Guys,

haven't posted for a while, I've had a lot going on. I'm working on something but need to take some pictures...

In the mean time I was in Edinburgh this weekend and they have an awesome collection of Oceanic art in the
National Museum of Scotland.

They have a Tang there-


those of you 'in the know' will see there's something missing...I had a look and I guess they sawed it off, -Victorians or Presbetarians and their sensitive morals

Anyway I tried to get a few shots of the back and sides as we don't normally see them-




I like the tool marks...


Hope these are helpful to anyone who's thinking of carving a Tang. I've never done a straight copy before, but seeing this one 'in the flesh' makes think I might have a go sometime...

there's some more pics on my blog if you're interested.

mahalo!

Hi Guys,

here's a quick preview of the one I'm currently carving. He's taking forever and he's a bloodthirsty little b*****d!





cheers

Thank you for the back side shots - you are correct.

Those are interesting tools marks. Like a serated chisel. Maybe a shell?

I make sure to feed/wipe the tiki if any blood is shed. Sometimes it helps.

glad to be able to help, I've learned alot from everyone's posts here.

Good call on the shell, it didn't occur to me but seems obvious now!

I've donated quite a bit of blood to the new guy, might have to name him Vlad...

at the museum.

Thanks for the feedback as always guys, you make me feel I should carve more often ;]

here's a couple of closeups so I can get the bonus points for going all the way through...






I'll be toasting in a Tiki style tonight, enjoy your weekend!



Cheers
