In the past I was always posting different topics for each of my tikis, but it seems to make more sense posting them all under one post. Maybe one of you can show me how to create a new title under an old post, I haven't figured that out yet. I'm a tiki carver not a computer programmer.

What do you get when you combine three small tiki statues and a circular redwood burl?









At SCtikis you get a shaky coffee table. The pictures below are of a small table that I made for a close friend. Poor guy had to wait over a year, but that just made him appreciate it more. Unfortunately, I made the backs of the tikis too elaborate which cased havoc when I tried to tie them all together. Next time, if there is a next time, I will notch out the backs and attach the base with dowels and Gorilla glue.







This table has a glass top and is now happily supporting beers and chips. I just hope some drunk hooligans don't decide to wrestle near it and crush it.

Until next time,
Will

Your tikis are fantastic. The seemingly simple and deep cuts give your stuf a great style.

Hey Will!

I'd wait a year for that table too. I'd say your friend scored! who cares if it wobbles?!?!?! I wouldn't! stick a match book under it! It's a tiki table and tiki tables ROCK.

Gee, I wish I had that problem.

Beautiful work Will. Such a good idea.

Will, once again... creativity and style show brightly through in your work. A beautiful and functional piece of art.
You really show off the natural beauty of wood with your selections.
