One new one made from a pine log.

One in progress from a palm log that I debarked.

ENJOY!

I don't know if anyone else thought of adding feet to their tikis, but here they are. This keeps the bottom of the Tikis form rotting too fast.


And here is my latest "Quickie Tiki" Learning to use the chisels more and the angle grinder less.

I just figured out I've been carving just over one year this month. I started during Hurricane Charley last year. Good way to remember huh? Thanks for all the inspiration and lessons.

Wow! Another Tanpa Bay Tikiphile...cool!

Welcome to TC...and thanks for sharing your photos. There are some very talented carvers here....I'm sure you'll find a bunch of great advice. Your carvings look great, especially for someone who's just getting started. Keep it up!

With the TB Tiki contingent growing all the time, it looks like we need to get some organized events so we can all meet...hmmm...

I have yet to carve but can't wait til I try. Yeah the feet idea is good. Let me add to it. Instead of adding foreign feet, carve some out of the bottom .

PHT,

Yes SIR! Tiki feet. Seems a sure way to battle mildew/mold. I'm down.

For my outdoor carvings I used to hollow out the bottom, bowl style to do just what teaKEY suggests and it works great to keep the bottom from rotting away.

Benz,

Thanks for the suggestion, I just got a few palm logs that are a little soft in the middle, maybe hollowing them out on the bottom will help keep them dry.
