Welcome Turbosickboy. Best of luck on your carving efforts! Can you give us an idea of what type and size of wood you are going to start with?

Turbo,

Good luck on your first tiki. I've always wanted to work in bjork (just kidding). Take some progress shots so we can see how your piece evolves. Thanks for posting.

I think i will make 4 Ramones tiki's one day!

Darn, ANOTHER First carving that looks like the 50th. Come on guys, if I had the pictures , I would show you what a first tiki should look like--- Putrid, Ugly,terrible, Thats how the first is Supposed to look. It is NOT supposed to look like a tiki or as good as this. vote we Ban first pictures unless they are Bad...?? Sickboy, you are teamed up with the other first timers trying to make us Normal carvers look bad Ha Ha Ha.
Seriously I love how you kept the slanted log and worked it into your piece. Very well done. All I can suggest (which is probably in your plan nayway.) is to work a bit of a headdress up on top . I like headdresses on tikis.
Excellent

I agree with Ben, this is a great first tiki. I can't wait to see pics of it stained and in final form. Wonderful job.
