my former girlfriend is into anything tiki, the polynesian lifestyle and postmodernism and her bday was coming up, when i saw the price of some of the tiki's she loves i thought, WTF i got a bunch of old pine aging out in the back for the firepit, i can do this. gave her my first one for her bday 4 years ago and she got my 7th one for xmas. i've worked mostly with east texas FORD (found on road dead) pine thanks to IKE and have completed about 20 and unfortunately i've been too busy with school work, daughter and new girlfriend to carve anything in the last 6 months (dining table is always full of books nowadays) and i'm really missing it. i keep hearing how great it is to carve palm and i'm still waiting for the palm trunks i have to dry out. it may be ready this summer.
