Here are some more of my earlier carvings.










This is one of several I did for the Harbor Hut Tiki Bar on the Intracoastal in Boynton Beach Florida.

This was my first Real looking Tiki and it was a wood similar to Cocobola, Very Hard but beautiful



This last one was Almost my last one forever. It was from a 50 ft Stadium Light Pole that was Treated with Arsenic among other chemicals. I found this out after getting Very Ill from carving it, then tracking down the source. Too bad too, it was Beautiful wood.

Well this is enough for now.
Here is a link to my Shutterfly pix:

I have a few more Tiki pictures left to scan, then I'm going to finish scanning my Other carvings of Pelicans, Dolphins, Indians and various other stuff.Thanks for your Patience.

Wow! How did you ever trace the arsenic and chemical treatments in time? You are lucky! Glad you did!
Beautiful work.

The Poles came from the Pompano Beach Ball park lighting. When I got sick, I asked them where the Poles came from and they looked back in their records, Contacted the company and gave me spec's on the Poles treatment chemicals.
Thanks for the compliment.

Amazing work Benzart, I love it. Can't wait to go to O'Donnells tommorow to see if your Tikis are there. That cocobolo Tiki, was it as hard? Man I have a little piece of that stuff, it's like steel, beautiful grain though. My favorite is that last Tiki, very unique.

I like the first one with the mullet & the smooth behind!

What were the dimensions of the log for that HUGE Lono? I suspect there's a great story behind that one. (hint, hint)

I guess it Was kind of Rude of be to bump all this stuff up wasn't it. Sorry 'bout that. I had a good reason at the time but I don't remember what it was. It was only 10 pm so I can't blame any drugs or rum

Ok, I'm freaking out over starting my first "big" tiki (two feet or so)--and completely screwing it up already. I just got a reality check for the concept of big. What did you carve the giant guy for? Is there a story? And where were you? Is that your workshop? Oh man, I can't worry about making a tiki bar until we get a bigger workspace! Ono better start working more hours, I'm thinking bigger house, workshop, more tools, big yard...
