LOL......I've always wanted a tiki for my back yard, but they were always too expensive, so I thought I would figure out how to make one....This one definitly is not as big as I want, but its a start. I used a piece of OAK out of the fireplace that has been sitting there looking pretty since last winter and went to town on it with my dremel as I dont have any chisels yet. I burned it and then sanded down and stained with a an old can of provincial i had sittin arouns. I know its not as pretty as some on here, but it cost me $0.00 and about an hour.....

Im Hooked now, thanks alot!........lol

We make due with what we have, especially when a tiki is knocking on our brain to get out! Thanks for posting, it can be a big step to share your work with everyone. A simple straight chisel can work wonders before you get the confidence to spend more money on tools. Looking forward to seeing your progress.
Pupule Tiki!
