Here is another one I did that still is up. The funny part is that it is in such a prime location, I knew that it was going to be taken down right away. That was over a year and a half ago.

Growing up in SoCal in the 60's & 70's I remember the Tiki Vibe in alot of places (I wish they were still around) but, hey there are alot new cool places to go. I never really collected much Tiki stuff, just shirts. Now my wife & I both are into collecting, we have a small mug collection & I have purchased a few art pieces. Our kids are grown so we have an extra room, patio, & backyard to totally Tikify. I hope to post picture of our progress as soon as I get started.

Hi every one,
I come here a lot so I figured I might as well join. I'm an avid Tiki fan and amateur carver. I collect mugs, art and any other poly pop I can get my hands on. I used to live in Atlanta where I spent most of my time at trader Vic's and attended the Tiki Torch nights. Now I'm in LA and attend the Tiki Ti and a few other Tiki haunts here like the Tonga Hut. I don't have much to say right now, so I'll just say Mahalo.

Hi everyone - Ron from sunny Blair, Nebraska here...Well, 9 degrees and sunny anyway.
My wife & I have been lucky enough to make a few annual trips to Hawaii and I have become very interested in tiki (Seeing all the statues at The Place Of Refuge on the Big Island was awesome!)
I love to watch the guys carve at the market places, and a semi-related offhand comment about Indian/Eskimo art to my <big> little brother caused him to bestow some soapstone and tools on me.
So...I'm not letting lack of knowledge and artistic ability stop me from having a go at carving. I may have to start with petroglyphs, but I'm gonna do it.
The shear volume of info here makes it hard to find things, but I'm going to scour the monster carving thread to hopefully get an idea for something easy to start with.
Mahalo on any tips for certain posts to look at.

I have been lurking for a while now and finally decided to jump in.
I'm in Oklahoma and about as far away from the beautiful ocean as I can get. Being a land locked Okie I have had a love affair with all things Tiki, Hawaiian, etc... since I was little.
I'm hoping to learn how to do some Tiki carving, and get some party tips as my wife is throwing me a HUGE Tiki Party in March for my 28th B-Day!

I've joined because I love Tiki & am looking for decor ideas for my pool for dogs! Of course the dogs don't care what the place looks like, but tiki will be fun for the people!

Hi everyone, New to the forum and looking for information on tiki carving. I am located in VB and I see there are a few others on here from VB too. I built a modified tiki hut/bar in the backyard a few years ago and have decided to add some tiki poles to dress it up. The pic is me at my favorite place in the summer. Nothing like sunshine, cold drinks, and good friends to spend the day.
