here is the Maori style tiki with the shell eyes in, i didn't use the traditional style to attach them, i just glued them in, as i was having enough trouble cutting the shells as it was.





here is a wall art type carving thing.



here is a photo of some of the stuff i'm starting to do to my room. i put up a reed waynescoting with bamboo to top it off. i also put up one of those home depot fans, this one is the Marquesan. i also put up a roof like structure with a thatching over my window, with a bamboo and glass float wind chime. a bamboo/ rattan CD holder and a couple of tiki pictures and bamboo shelfs. i still have alot left to do but it is a start.

my doore way, with a carved drum, a oceanic arts bora bora pole,a moai doore stop, and a Mr. Crafty picture.



here is the roof structure, with wind chime

here is my first carving since school started. this will be a door handle/pull for the cabnet i'm making. it is the same style and will go on the same cabnet as the legs i showed earlier.
this was made out of a closet rod that just broke. the tiki is 7inches tall





i stained him to match the legs.

You have been a busy guy. Extremely nice carvings that you've been turning out. I admire the consistency in your carvings for the table legs. Replicating hand carved work can be challenging.

Very Very nice.

Keep it up.

Hey Octane, here's a photo tip for you. Your camera adjusted the aperture according to the background of your photo. It "sees" a lot of light reflected off the white door so it adjusts the aperture down, thus your tikis are too dark to see the detail. Try a darker background or use flash, or both. Hope that helps.

Thanks BK, Monkeyman, Gecko, and Jungle trader for the nice praise and the camera tips.

here are those door handles again, a little clear still not the greatest photos.





here are few other things i have done but haven't posted yet.

my first attempt at the closet rod just to see how it would carve





here is a Maori fish hook, i have one i wear just like this one but in bone. it is made out of a wood called andiroba (sp?) a red Mahogany substitute. no power tools were used in the making of this object, well until i drill the hole in it. the peice of wood started out to be about 1 1/2inch thick. final thickness is 1/4 inch.
