OK You guys I was holding this one back but I'll show yous anyways!!!! This one right here is my very first attempt in carving wood... It's a piece of 4by6 that I found holding a car from rolling around the shop so I grabbed a angle grinder and the block of wood and went to work.....30 min later I got this..I then torched,stained,sanded the edges!!!!! Watcha think!!!!! Next I'm gonna try using chisels...

Excellent first tiki Notch and Welcome to TC's Carving world. Looks like you will fit right in, just be careful what wood you start grinding away on as lots ot Pressure treatesd and other treated wood can be very toxic and once you start on a tiki it seems all Safety logic goes out the door. Thanks for posting.
Digger, Excellent stuff from you too, Look at the King, Top Shelf for sure. How ya' been, OK?

C'mon man! You're kiddin'. The first one? That's very hard to believe. But from a suckass perspective, it's easy to believe. I'm in the 'suckass' perspective.

Very nice work. I still don't believe that this is an example of "My First Tiki" tho

Yo tikigap thanks.. I carved a few out of foam But never out of wood.... And Believe it or not thats my first one that I carved with a small angle grinder.. I think using chisles will make a true caving...for me I think?

Well it is hard work and I think those who carve tend to be all around hard workers on the job or at play. This is play.
Notch is smarter than the rest of us, he started with foam. That's like carving air.
Be careful guys. Yesterday I wore my kidney belt. Good idea.

Thanks Bamboo. You should put those custom bamboo crutches up for auction.

Hey Notch, cut it out! I hate when people whip out killer tikis in 30 minutes when the rest of us take weeks, months even...

Hey, JT's back! And it looks like the beginnings of sumthin' different. Don't try to lift it too much or we'll never see it done.

I'm at work (on Saturday...), so don't ask me about tikis. I guess everybody else around here is at 4WD's SD Chop-Chop right now. Crap!

Sure, peyote is the good stuff.
