My first mask, first clubs, and first tiki pole. That mask looks like a painted booger. Clubs...No Comment. Tiki, very fussy poplar log with a tung oil finish. It looked gross, too before I upgraded the finish later..

WOW! Some of those first attempts are pretty nice. I think I may have you all beat with my first "tiki." I did it with a hatchet and bow-saw out of a piece of wood too punky to burn. Took all of 40 minutes to "carve." Actually I was pretty impressed with myself at the time. I really didn't think it would turn out even this "good!"

Funny, like doubravski this piece really isn't that old... design was laid out just before Wilma hit and cut the following week. I guess it's still a "work in progress" since I'm currently trying to work out a background scheme/pattern/motif for the little bugger. I'm pretty happy with the result so far...

No photos, of course - but - when my dad's 25' catamaran (called the "PapeToeTane" - no lie!) was in the back yard of our home in Venice, she had a small wooden Tahitian tiki on the cross-beam bow. When I was 5 or 6 years old - I used to make these little tiki masks out of mud, with white-rocks (blown off from the roof and from our garden) for eyes, nose and mouth. Pretty primitive, but it was probably what started all of this craziness in my life!
