After taking some time off, I carved up a couple freshies. "MEGATIKI" is 8' and "IRIE WARRIOR" is 5'5". A guy bought MegaTiki and wanted a "similar" tiki to keep him company. What do you think? Any tips or suggestions? I have a couple more 6' big logs ready to rock.


8' log...loaded by myself, not a biggie!

5'5" log

Nice Starter Tikis, Giant logs which look like Cabbage/Sable Palm logs. Are you in Florida, Where? Love the shots of you on top of the tiki's
As WPlugger said, "Carve Deeper" , get that mouth Way Open and that nose stuck out there, give him some Deep features. Still tikis to be Proud of!

Thanks guys. I will definitely work on carving deeper on my next ones. I'm still a novice and I'm trying to get better. I was lucky to find a huge dead Mexican fan palm in an empty lot from which I got an 8', and two 5.5' logs from! It's crazy how good some of the people are on here. Yowza!

Those are pretty clean cuts. What are you carving with right now?

Thanks! I'm actually just using a few crappy home depot style chisels. I didn't even sand or stain, just carve and burn! When I get a bit better, I want to start using better chisels and I'd like to get crazy with design work.

I made another, but I'm not too stoked on him. Wood was really bad so I kinda just messed around.



My first mini...

I actually think the big one looks good. Don't give up on it, I think most people have given up on one or more and came back to work on them and enjoyed the results.

A 6' quickie I chugged out before I move to Costa Rica. Just had to get him done, wish I had more time to go deep and add detail, but not too bad for only spending a few horas!
