Here is a tiki that I did about a month ago. It's carved out of Ash that I purchased at a yard that sells firewood. Chainsaw, chisels and a grinder were used to bring him to life. A coat of Teak Natural stain and he's good to go. Cool fact about this tiki is that the tree must have been used for a fence because there is wire embedded in the log on the back. I thought it added to the tikis mystique so I left it in.

Thanks! Nice to be here. Sorry about the pics having trouble with posting pictures from Shutterfly. I can only attach the URL and not the pics. Also it will only let me post the same URL? Confused. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks fellas,

I like to take different elements from tikis and incorporate them into my own designs. In the future I might try to do more traditinal tikis. But....who knows I might get a wild hair to do something totally different. That's what makes carving so fun, you don't have to stay between the lines if you don't want to right.

This a tiki bar stool that carved a couple of weeks ago. I took doug fir 4x4's and cut them at an angle glued them together and carved him up. Hollow for the weight issue. Problem now is all my friends want one. Good problem to have I guess if they want to pay for it. Went to Hoffmans fabrics for the material and the cusion. Same color of stain Teak Natural
