Thanks nicework. I've been diggin your work as well. I'm up at 3:45 am to be at work by 5am. I work 10 hour days now. I wish I had more time in a day to carve. I'm pushing forward though.I'll be knockin out more here real soon. Committing to a booth at a Polynesian Festival in March has me pumped. Keep up the good work. Your experience as an ice carver shows in your work. I liked the recent one with the frog. That waz tha shiznit!

I've been busy spendin time at the grind, building a website, creating a fb page, blogging and hustling to promote Tiki Republic. That didn't keep me from viewing what you guys have been up to though. It also didn't keep me from carvin. I've tried to expand my skills by carving in different styles.


Side shot of a Marquesan. I put down the chainsaw and picked up the chisels for this one. Thanks for the influence 4WDtiki.



Front shot of the Marq.



This was from looking at Doug Hornes work too much.



A quick freestyle retro.


Easter Isle.



Retro.



First attempt at a Marquesan bust.



I didn't like the eyes and the mouth was too wide. I studied images and tried again with the Marq up top.



This was just freestyle. Reminds me of what a Chihuahua would look like if it was a tiki, lol.



Side shot to show the chisel detail.

Mahalo y'all.

Big T, I just went through all your pages and was very impressed. There are a lot ideas there that I have in my head. I have a stash of palms that I'll be carving into full body Hawaiian and Marqs similar to what you've done but on a larger scale.
Work does get in my way but I get a lot of energy carvin so I organize my time better in order to do both.
