Very cool, Thanatos! Instead of those tikis just standing there lookin pretty, they may as well hold up a bench.

It really does look nice. Functional tiki, it's a neat concept. It gets both sides of the brain working!

You've come a long way. Good job. I'm beginning to think you should have carved your tap handle yourself!

Well my girlfriend "Trish" didn't think she could either, now you should see some of the small stuff "she's" carving these days...I'll have to post some pics for her to share with every one. I'm proud of here for getting involved, plus she enjoys it which makes it all the much better.

Never count yourself out till you try it. You never know, hell, you have many tikis now, "5" or so!!!

Thantos, each tiki you do gets better and better. As you get more tools and start wanting more detail, it will happen. just start adding a bit at a time until you are comfortable. keep'em coming.
