My first Tiki. Been carving for little over a year or so, but this is the first one I've really "finished". He's far from perfect, but I feel good about him







A friend of mine asked me to make a tiny tiki to be installed as a shiftstick for his car
Be gentle with me

It may sound cheap, but the wood is plain pine and the tools where two or three xacto knives.
Loads of sandingpaper too...
For the color two coats of mahogany stain, one darkbrown varnish wash and a coat of ship's varnish to seal him.

Tropical hardwoods are fairly hard to come by around here if you're not in the trade.

Btw, his lips meet at the back...

Great job! It's got some pretty nice grain for pine. I love the depth of color you have on it, it's good to know you can get something really rich looking out of cheap wood.

Indeed, tropical hardwoods are extremely hard to find in Europe
