Thanks for the kind words. I got word that this was a very well liked birthday gift.

Here's my newest project: Tiki bench



Its just something fun I threw together for my kids to sit on in the yard. Still have to carve the ends and then lots of sanding and staining.
Let me know what you think.

Sweet. I might have to steal that idea. I need a bench by my pond. Did you use 2x4s for the seat?

Thanks for the kind words. It really helps keep me going.

I really like the idea of functional Tiki.

Raff, I used 2x2's and then screwed them together with .5x1 spacers. You could use a 2x10 also.

heres some more pics ...

Looking good, rodeotiki! That's right, put those tikis to work... Let 'em make themselves useful and hold up a bench instead of just standing there...
