S&T that Teko turned out great. That is an Awesome piece with Excellent form and detail. Looks like you have done dozens of them and made it look like just another days work.
Here is a link to a powerful carver that will to your 2 panels in about 1 hour,,Serious. You can find several suppliers and different prices for each. These guys have about the cheapest. You need to brouse through the "Tools Carvers use" Thread over in Creating Tiki. There are some excellent tools there./.
Still loving your project.

Very cool. I want to do something like this in our yard. Make a nice A-frame roof lanai. How are you going to cover the roof? Tin roof, thatch...

Wow, I haven't checked this thread in over a week, what amazing progress. The Tekoteko and the gable are great. What a treat to see.

So this explains why you missed out on the surf weekend before last. One word...sick!! How about using a curved wedge to blend the teko to the gable?

You could conceal the beam and "boo boo" by just wrapping the beam with rope or binding/lashing.

I like the rope idea. I think that would look nice.

Mahalos to all: T5-0, Gman, Benzart, Hiltiki, Swanky JP, surfT, Loki, TMike-you guys are all way nice!

Thanx for the info/tips, Benz. I've really enjoyed this 'flat panel carving stuff' and will be doing more soon for the posts of the hut/bar thing.

Swanky- I think I'm going w/ corrugated fiberglass panels for the roof. I found some really thick, durable stuff at Blowe's in a nice, hunter green kinda color. May do the gable portion of the roof with clear panels for some natural light.

SurfT-- Yea, I was bangin' away on some boards while you were riding boards-catcha next time! Curved wedge, hmmmm, that's a good idea, if I'm thinkin' along the same lines as you. (I think I am)

TikiMike-also a good idea. I haven't done any rope/lashing work before but I've seen it used very nicely here and elswhere. I'll have to do some research.

Thanks again for looking and giving suggestions. I'm gonna have to do some 'general carpentry' now to get the gable panel to stay where it's supposed to, then off to phase 2, and I'm not exactly sure what that is going to be yet. Maybe a palm thatch overhang for the front. I've also got 500 feet of bamboo that's going in somewhere.
Check back soon.
