Thanks, Jungle Trader.........yeah, Fallbrook. I think we might have met at the San Diego Home TiKi Bar Crawl in March?

Thanks Jeff, I have another log that I think is from the same tree as The Keeper...It's only about 4' tall and really heavy and dense. Gonna try something new, a sitting Buddha style TiKi (it might change, the chainsaw has a mind of it's own sometimes).I hope to start this week.

I carved this guy today at my wife's school.
They always have a luau for 5th grade graduation.
The kids love the TiKi carving ( unfortunately no chain saws at school, so it's all chisels )
I'll finish him up here at home.

Anyone ever had problems with bugs eating one of your TiKis?

A TiKi that I carved has some bugs eating it.....small pin-hole with fine saw dust around it.

Any ideas on this problem would be appreciated.

Thanks

Nasty borers......beetles....and worms. Before I went too much further, I would serve up some mineral spirits to the entire log and allow to fuly dry. That Should remedy the activity. Don't bother with a brush. Just open and pour. Repeat as necessary.

Nice carves mang!


Mahalo!

Im plagued with this problem. Yeah those are wood boring beetles. Everyone refers to them as worms. When you find them in the wood, they look like grubs (well i guess they are grubs at that stage). Then they mature into beetles and eat they way out. I bought some Tim-Bor, which is Borax or sodium borate. I think it's helping prevent them on uninfected logs but once they're already in there the Tim-Bor probably won't help much.

Haven't really found any other good solutions.
