Thanks Nomolos and as always Benzart. I believe, although not entirely sure, the wood is actually hemlock. I had a neighbor try and identify it. I can spot oak, pine and maple, but after that I am not too good

I have been lurking but have really bogged down with remodeling the kitchen. Before I got underway I actually sold one more of my previous tikis and was asked to make two more. I worked on these most of the winter. One is made of maple. I have had to take what I can get my hands on. I sure am not a fan of this maple. Here he is.




The next guy was made out of oak. Oak was acutally easier than the maple. I haven't been too happy with my hands on previous tikis as they seem like an afterthought. I made sure I focused on this guys hands before I did anything else. I have lost my my usb cable to my good camera. Hopefully I will be able to find as these pictures aren't all that clear.



after a haircut and a shave



I am working on a six foot poplar log currently. It seems much easier. Anyone aware of any pratfalls in dealing with poplar? Any feedback would be appreciate.

Thanks

Thanks Seeksurf, SDShirtman, and Nomolos. Now that my kitchen is done I have had some more free time. Here is the latest. His one hand will hold a small candle (battery operated) while the other will hold a tiki torch. (solar powered) I hope to finish the few details and sand him down tomorrow.

Thanks drastic! Surfintiki it seems like we are the only two tiki(ers)? from PA. We got a got a lot of territory to cover (especially if you're in Mass) Just tell me you're an Iggles fan and not a Stillers fan
