I start to carve my first Tiki in September 2004. Its from a piece of balsa wood.



These are also balsa Tikis.





This is a kind of a Tiki mask. The wood calls in Germany "Birke". Sorry, I dont know whats in english!



Six mounth ago I start to create my firt bigger Tiki.



Now I have 15 Tikis. Here you can see a few of them.







I create a Tiki bar with two chairs for one of our three tiki exibithion in summer 2005.





This time Im carving new figures for our next exibithion in February.

I'll be willing to bet that 'Birke' is Birch!

Welcome to TC Haikai. What a great way to make an entrance, Tikis all over the place and more under construction. Excellent tiki bar and excellent tikis. How long have you been carving tikis and what made you pick up the first log and say ," I'm gonna make myself a Tiki"?
Keep carving and posting..

Thanks everyone,

Benzart, the first time I was touched with tiki, was in 1999 when I discover the book of tiki.
I was so enthusiastic about Tiki, that Im started to create my own little paradise at home. The problem in Germany is, you cant get realy nice carvings.
So I start to carve my own Tikis in September 2004.
The first Tikis are very smal and only balsa wood.
In April 2005 I want to have a bigger figure and start to carve my first 3,5 feet Tiki.

Here are more from my first carvings:











rodeotiki, here can you see the carved Shrunken head. Thanks...
