Aloha to my carving brothers an sisters. I've been concentrating on learning the tiki mug process since I've been on TC. Although I have yet to comment in this section I have been following and enjoying every post. I started carving a few years ago and still do it when I get time. I just finished the Marguesan tiki a few days ago. I also transformed my backyard into my own utopian island. I'll post images in the backyard tiki bar section.


This is a shot of some of the tikis that I've carved on the deck and canopy that I also built in...Arizona. The backyard use to be desert landscaped. I didn't need to be reminded of how freakin hot it gets here so I decided to do something about that.



This is me with my first attempt at carving a full body tiki. It's about 5 feet.



This is is my rendition of that ol Rollin Stones poster with the waggin tongue, lol. Whassssuuuup! I like to notice and incorporate the bark in my tikis when ever possible.



This is my retro 60's look. It's about 3 feet tall and my favorite. I've started transforming the backyard in the background.



This is a group shot of some of the first tikis that I carved. My rendention of the Frankoma War God on the far right.



This is the 5ft Marquesan tiki that I finished a few days ago while I was waiting for some tiki mugs to be fired.

Mahalo for checkin it out, Pierre

Thanks Dan or Wendy. I'm familiar with your posts in the mug category. I really admire your work with the tiki mugs. You guys make me wanna jump on a flight to Sacremento to visit and learn what I can from you. Pierre

Nice job on the tikis, and good looking back yard.

We've got a couple things in common - we both live in the Phoenix area and both have dreads!

Keep up the good work...

Thanks Nice Work! I like what you're doin as well. The ice bears, ice tikis, food carvings...all your stuff. Glad to see another tikiphile jump in. If you're lookin for more inspiration check out Tiki Magazine. Welcome aboard.

PJC5150, I like what you and 4WDTiki do. I am pushing myself to a new limits as appose to just knocking out generic tikis. There's a huge and growing Polynesian community out here. I wanna pay them respect by creating tikis that they would like to have. That last piece was just practice to what I'm about to start on.

Bill Collins if your reading this let me know. I'm an airline employee and can find my way to Lihue just to check your work out in person.

Mahalo
