At one of our jobsites at work, there is a pile of about 20 pieces of 6x8s that were trimmed off the rafters at 26". I decided to take two home to see if there were any tikis inside.
There were.



I knocked these guys out this afternoon, and will stain them tomorrow.
Now I need to get the other 18!

The folks next door to me knocked down their old house and are building a 2 story in it's place, they had a huge piece of 6x12x4' that I wanted but the contractor said he was going to use it, I think he just didn't want me to have it! I was curious to know how the laminated lines would look, now I know, now I'll jump the wall and see if he really is using it!

Moondance, I used a chainsaw to rough them out, some chisels to even them out, and an angle grinder to smooth them out.
I mark out all my tikis by first putting a centerline down the front, then rough drawing one side with a crayon. Then, I measure and transfer to the other side.

Here's the two pieces stained. Minwax Golden Oak, and Jacobean.

Wow, I really like the Golden Oak one. Great find on that wood - how hard is it with the chisels compared to palm?

Mieko, it's slightly harder than palm, but I only used chisels for about 2% of the work on them.
98% power tools.

Here's today's work! Started this morning. I had a palm log that split just laying in the yard, so I decided to try something different (for me).

Here's a side and back view.


They are about 3' tall, and extremely light, maybe 5lbs each. This wood was FULLY dried.

These are VERY cool, Bill! You should call them Beavis and Butthead!

That mask piece you gave me has come along very nicely. You'd be proud!

Once again proving fast and good need not be mutually exclusive. I have a severe case of productivity envy!

Wow! 4WD!

The Moais have a Witco feel to them. Very nice!


I love the masks too.


I have "Time to carve" envy.
