I got a hot tub a while back and put it out in my backyard, then realized that I had to close it off from prying eyes. So I built a tiki hut around it. This drivel just poured out of my head. This project made me realize that I had to do something tiki. The tiki hut is probably the inspiration that got me carving. When I buy my next house, it will have room for a tiki bar (there's some fantastics examples on this site), and it will have a hot tub enclosure, bigger and better than My Old Tiki Hut.

I thought some out there might like to see the old tiki hut, so here's a link:

It's interesting (to me anyway) that the two tiki's I carved so far were made from the pressure teated 4x4's used to make the tiki hut. I just relaized that...!

Looks like a Fun Tiki Hut. I can picture myself lounging in the hottub sippin on a cold one and listening to someone play the Uke.
Maybe I didn't look close enough, I only saw 1 painted tiki, did you do that one? if so, Great, lets see some More.
Welcome To TC, looks like you fit right in.

Hi Ben,

I hadn't started making tiki on my own at that point (except maybe the palm tree and the bamboo walls and pergola), but no carvings. That's store bought

I'm carving now to build up a supply though, when I DO get around to making a new hut and bar.
