New Tiki carver here... Suffering from post carving cracking, sealed and unsealed. On one, I cut in a groove at the top and bottom and bound with bailing wire and covered with hemp rope. This seems to have arrested the cracking and it is sitting pretty indoors as a gift to a friend. The cracks, now stopped, create an authentic look.

I was wondering, I have a metal strapping gizmo at work, has anybody tried that? Also, I heard of PEG. Sounds potentially harmful to the environ... is there anything else they can be soaked in? Some type of oil perhaps?

Tiki tanks? Hm... tiki hot tubs...

Aloha
