Welcome to TC. As Gman says, very cleanly carved tikis. Very nice. That last one took a lot of work. Looks like you are used to cabinet and lathe work of some kind?

Thanks Johnny. I'm not a carpenter but I did shape surfboards for about 10 years in the South Bay of LA. I still shape a few boards but only wooden surfboards between tikis and my real job.

Thanks Conga, Ill try to post in progress pics and some of my other stuff now that I made the leap from viewer to poster.

Hey RevBambooBen, Nope grew up in LA County but would like to go to Brazil someday.

Alldo, those tikis are killer, besides the fact that they are your firsts. The glue up stock is a great idea - looks like a lot of work! You've got talent - stick around!

Here is the pic of the wire sticking out of his backside. After the rains he has a little bit of a mildew on him. Spraying diluted bleach seems to take it off. Is that ok for long term? Should I coat him with a varnish to prevent mildew?

Here is the second tiki made out of the same ash logs as the other tiki. Ash is really nice to work with. Hard yet soft, with very little chipping or cracking. Chainsaw, chisels and a grinder. With lots of finish sanding. Teak natural stain with no poly. He has the same mildew as the previous tiki probably need to put a coat on him eh.

Thanks for the props Kaha Ki'i,
I'm thinking about making a limited run of the bar stool. However, it is very time consuming with the cutting and the gluing. On this project I had the table saw kick back a piece of wood into my hand. I thought I had really screwed up but only got a smashed finger out of the ordeal. The table saw is the only tool that I truly fear. I respect the other tools but the table saw will make you pay for any little mistake..... dearly. Anyway if I decide to make a run of the stools I'll let you know. Maybe we can trade?

Nice tikis and the Stool is really KIller. Great job just laying it out and cutting it all. The guue up must have been Loads of fun too. Excellent project.
I'd say you have the tiki bug pretty bad. Let it run its course and feed it Plenty logs when it asks for them.
