After several years of hibernation, I'm whipping out the chisels and firing up the chainsaw again. Everything you see on this thread is created right here in Texas. Here we go...

Here's a 9 footer done in 2004

Still developing my marquesan chops. (someday I'm gonna reach Bill Collins level!)

I hit this mask with some ebony stain which I must admit I dig a lot. Ebony isn't for every tiki but i like it on this guy...

Your tikis are lovely and I appreciate how much you need tikifying in Texas. I hail from New Jersey which is completely devoid of all things tiki. I feel your pain!

I wish I could carve like you. Well done!

Great stuff ! , and I agree Lori you should start carvin it up in New Jersey. There's plenty of talented carvers here on TC that are more than willing to share their knowledge and experience!

My mom has been asking for a tiki for some time now so I decided to crank one out for her Xmas present. She recently converted to judaism so I thought she would dig a star of David. Here's what I've got done so far...




Finished of w/some sweet cherry stain... Hope she likes it!

Here's a 9 foot beast that I did for my father-in-law's back yard oasis. He's about 10 years old. I like the grey weathered look it's taken. I think a squirrel has built a nest in it's head now. Nutty.
