TikiVic...Amazing detail!

I am using a higher grade fir board, about $15.00 from Lowes...

Finished the pattern today, all done by hand!









Next will be more details in the diamond and rectangle shapes with tiki images!

Looks great...I love the geometric patterns. Not sure where you reside but here in the LA area I've found that some tropical hardwoods are actually a bit less expensive than the "high grade" pine, etc. that Lowes/Home Depot sells. That's because true hardwood is sold by the "board foot" rather than the "linear foot". I've tried carving both and found the hardwoods far superior.

Thanks for the information and I'll give the hardwoods a whirl one of my next attempts!

I agree that the hardwoods are better and wil cut much cleaner and take less time to clean up.
Your panels are good but think that a pencil or something wrapped in 220 grit sandpaper would clean out the lines and make them look Excellent.
Still, Nice job!
