Nice project. Are you going to bevel the edges or just butt them up? Have you found that kiln dried dimensional lumber carves different than "natural" cured logs?

Nice tikis (I like the pole against the wall)in a warm basement carving area. Is sawdust a problem inside?

Mahalos Danny!

tfisher art... all four are a select grade pine 1x

Johnny... I rabbeted the edges on two of the panels... I'm going to nail and glue three of the panels together before staining and then the last panel will be put on after the box is installed.

Kiln dried wood... sometimes I find it easier, but more brittle. These boards are nice, when the chisels are good and sharp the wood's like butter.

I still do the heavy sanding outside, but try to keep up with the small sawdust inside when I do sand. I was working on a sanding booth, but lost motivation... we're only renting for the next 6 months anyhow, then I get my own basement to mess up!
I just bundle up and head outside to sand.

Thanks for the props on the tikis!


Made quick work of the three today and played with the torch... hope to have the fourth finished by end of day on Tuesday. Delivery on Friday.

Cool stuff lake, I Love the box/panel tikis. Can't wait to see them with the finish applied. Love the shot of your work space too. Is that a Router duplicator back in the corner I see??

Everything looks great, Dave! I'm gonna have to get a pendant from you sometime...those little guys are cool!

Glad to know you're staying busy. Any chance we'll be seeing you in Florida again this year?

Hi Lake Surfer,

Great panels. I too would love to see some detail.

That pole you posted at the beginning is also really amazing.

We still love our tiki you made - its become a member of the family.

Keep posting pictures as we love to see what you've created.

Mahalo!

Thanks all for your kind comments!




I delivered the tiki box to the bar today and Donnie said he was going to install it Friday afternoon. I hope to hop over there next week on Tiki Tuesday and get some photos of it in it's natural environment. Fun stuff!

Sally and Jay!

Good to hear from you! Miss you guys, though we have no more Tabu Tiki Nights to go to! And no Trader Vic's.
Good to hear the tiki is enjoying Idaho!
Hope everything is well with you two!

Hey Lake!,

How's it going up there? Looks like you've been busy. I love the panels and the lamps. Way to go! The little guys are very kool as well.

Is the weather getting better for you guys up there? If so, are we going to see a massive posting of your goods on the next good "poly day"? It was bloody hot here yesterday and I had to stop carving at 2:00. Some days I wish I was up there in the cooler weather with you, JohnnyP, and Conga.

Anyway, I just wanted to check in and let you know I've been watching all the great stuff you've been doing. Keep it up, and keep posting - we need to see them!

What happened with that whole Kirk/Metallica thing?

-G

Gman... much thanks!

It's crappy up here. It is 40 degrees and it has rained the last 3 days. I'm in the basement again.
Looks like maybe a couple times this week for some sun and 50's, but I'm staying indoors.

I need a good poly day... as it is now it takes a day for 1 coat to dry... on a good poly day I can get 2 or three coats on.
