Tikisobeyali, I just found this. Your artwork is great. I love your great sense of design and symmetry. Clean bold lines, interesting pieces with a lot of expression. Great job.

Here is the final look:



I went a lot darker on this one and I'm pretty happy with the final outcome.
This one measures 3' 6" tall and has about a 5" original diameter. Again this one is white pine. Great wood and with a good pre-treatment, the pine takes the stain really well.

Hiltiki- Glad you took a look and thanks for the kind words.

Just wanted to let everyone know that I am now living in the Atlanta area (For locals, in Doraville). I have really not had that much time to carve as I have taken a field tech position at a archaeology firm in town that is going to be keeping me out of town except for the weekends. So, as of now, we have been spending most of our time getting the house together and our Wiki Wiki Room back in running order. Hopefully next weekend I will be able to spend some time in our basement getting it organized back into a working shop. So, I just wanted to thank everyone that has ordered tikis from me in the past and say how much it helped in the move. I should be back up and carving in the next few weeks and should be back to producing at least one or two a month. In the meantime, here are a couple pics of the progression of the Wiki Wiki Room:

Moving in Day, 15+ boxes of tiki goodness:


The new bar in progress:

The Wiki Wiki Room as it stands today:


So, give us a few more weeks and the Wiki Wiki Room should be back in running order. If passing through or local, drop me a PM and let's get something planned. Would love to have a grand opening celebration!

Tikisobayli and I have been moving at snail speed getting the Wiki Wiki Room done. He has been gone alot with work, but last weekend we finally got the ceiling done! We wanted kind of a Trader Vic vibe with the corrugated panels with Chinese newspaper. Overall it turned out great and really makes the room cozy. We still have several boxes of mugs, wall clutter, and ceiling stuff to hang. These are mostly daytime pics since we haven't finished all the wiring for the many many lights (Tikisobayli is obsessed with the perfect lighting ambiance). More pictures to come when we actually finish (is it really ever finished?) and when we have the inaugural party!

Reed fencing up.


Panels added.




Thanks for looking!
Waikiki and Tikisobayli

Wow....it has been awhile since I have had something to post in here. Before I get to it, lots of new names and still so much quality projects. A lot has changed here on this end to say the least. My wife and I have bought our first home which happens to be our dream MCM home here in Atlanta for over a year and loving every moment. So many projects going on and now finally tiki is one of them. We have just started on our third version of our beloved Wiki Wiki Room. Now, finally having a place of our own, no limits and the room will finally be what we have always wanted plus in the right context, the basement rumpus room in our Atomic Ranch...As we begin to make real progress, we'll post pictures. As of now, all demo work is done and framing for the bar is about to take place. You can get all the details on our blog...Home Sweet Split Level.

Anyway, let's get to the latest project. In the middle of our neighborhood, we have a great little swim and tennis club that is run by the neighborhood:Northcrest Swim and Tennis Club. My wife and I help out along with a few other fellow Northcresters and at our annual meeting this year, we all wanted to do something for a neighbor that goes above and beyond in helping out. At the club, we have a small little "tiki hut" (which needs some help) and we decided to name the tiki hut after him. So, I glued up some cedar boards, sharpened up the chisels, warmed up the blow torch, and came up with the following sign to hang in his honor!



I was a little rusty, but it came out pretty nice I think. Everyone loved it and as a result, when we open up the pool next season, I going to help rehab the pool's tiki hut! Should be a fun project.
