Very nice work! I really like the big tikis, very cool. Welcome to TC!

With the large tikis, how do you carve the styrofoam? There's a factory offcuts art supplies shop near me that sells big blocks of foam, I'd love to have a go at a big one like those. Is the vertical grain part of the styrofoam, or did you add that? Thanks in advance!

Hey I am glad you like them. We pretty much employ some of the same carving techniques as carving wood we use reciprocating saws grinders and dremmels as well as some Styrofoam tools that include wire brushes and hot wires. We finish it up with multiple grades of sand paper. They have a two part epoxy coating and they are faux finished with acrylic paints . The wood grain is a combination of carving and painting.

Hey everyone I have been busting my hump lately getting the tikis ready for a party a month ago. Here are some pics. Sorry some of them are so dark but the professional photographer hasn't given me any of his shots yet. Feel free to give me some feedback. This is the first Bar we have ever built.


This is a 10 foot TIki

New Moai Bar

I'll bet it was a luau or other type of "Hawaiian event" and not a "tiki event"

Wow, I sure hope you will make it to Tiki Oasis one day, if not we will have to go to the Hukilau one year just to meet you, Wendy

Hey guys thanks for the feedback. To answer a few questions yes it is all carved out of foam and fiber-glassed. It was a Luau and not strictly a Tiki event and the Bar is located in storage. It all comes apart and folds up. I rent these bars and tikis to event planners and a few Polynesian event directors. This particular event was located in Palm Beach. I am still waiting for a few pictures from the professional photographer. I will post when I get them.
