Hello

this is my first topic here on TC - i hope you will enjoy my work
My first Tiki i have done last summer after a great meeting with Hot Rods and Rockabilly music in Switzerland.
It was cool to see HAIKAI "the greatest carver in good old Germany" carving live his great Tikis, drinking some good cocktails and spending a good evening with my friends - it was a revelation and some days later i bought some knifes for trying out my first Tiki

for me Tikicarving is very important to spending time with my friends - Vinz and Seb hey boys show us your Tikis - and creating something with my own two hands, without any stress and near natural things like wood, terracotta or stone

hope you enjoy


no.1 broken in two pieces after two weeks not realy cool


after this first emotional birth of my first TIKI some others are luckier than the first one





yes you are right, on the right side it's a knife "Opinel" out of inox steel and a chestnut wood. this knifes are specially produced for carvers like us
realy cool stuff out of the french Alpes !!!




voila, that's all for the moment
next projekt will not wait longer on

aloha
Akuae

Welcome to t.c..
Nice to meet another euro-carver here.

You gathered a nice bunch of tikis allready. I like them, wondering how the laughing guy will turn out.
Can you fold this opinel-knife or is this a stiff blade?
Nice toolbox also, looks a bit like the "Bonny & Clyde"- car.

Hello everybody

hope your all fine
here some updates with new pictures
Thanks Ben for your last reply - the little one is now ready
for taking care of my home - no more bad phantoms or spirits will come in
take a look - the burning Tiki is about 25 cm high and of good birch-wood

Also my bigger projekt is nearly finished
It's the first time i give arms at a Tiki - it's not perfect but i think not to bad
A about 60 cm basswood laughing one - This Tiki will be watching out for bad spirits in the backyard of very
good friends of me in good old Germany
Conny, Klaus and Julian are the best neighbours in the world.....





some other pictures will following soon

great new TIKI Year to everyone
Akuae

Aloha Akuae,

the small new tiki looks really unique and also very good after you burned it and I bet your neigbors will appreciate the big basswood guy !
I like the opinel knife as well, does it fold in ?

Cheers
