Aye-aye Capn',



I was going for a traditional tiki so I could concentrate on the headdress. But the headdress went askew, and today, this guy took a radically bizarre turn. It's so different that I can't post an update until it's at least stained and/or finished.

I hope this isn't a sore spot, but please don't tell us he now the "Littler Kahuna"...

What's the trick with using a grinder? I bought one, turned it on, turned it off, and shelft it. I had that feeling I should be wearing fullbody leather and a shield, not sandals and protective eyewear.

Not a sore spot, I just go with the flow. Sometimes you redeisign as you go other times the tikis design themselves. This one is a little of both.

Guys, this one is going to be a tiki like you haven't seen before, I guarantee.

It just takes some getting used to. I usually make the deep cuts with a chainsaw, then round'em off with the grinder. It will save you some blisters.

The Little Kahuna has gone tourist. He still needs some work, but is shaping up nicely.


A closeup of his hawaiian-style shirt, and Napolean pose.


He kind of reminds me of Rodney Dangerfield.


By next update he should be sporting a multi-color stained shirt and a brand new tan

Hah! That will be one of a kind for sure! Will there be any paint involved, or strictly stain?

I'll use 3 or 4 different stains. I had green, and a red ones mixed at Home Depot. I really want to keep the wood grain as live as possible.

I've decided to leave the traditional tikis to the pros, and create tikis with my own artistic/twisted approach. Though I may still try some traditionals for learning purposes.

Thanks guys, for the encouragement. It motivates me to keep at it.
