This is my first attempt at carving my own Tiki, it took me over 4 weeks using only chisels, the wood used is pine.

It stands around 4-5ft and will guard the entrance to my forth coming Tiki bar/Surf bar to be built in my shed.

I look forward to your comments.

I am already planning my next design and can't wait to get started.

All the best Tiki Steve!

That's terrific. If you have step by step photos you should open a thread on the carving page. Then all the carvers will write you lots of messages. I did my first wooden tiki last year and it was fun to read the comments. Did you use a blow tourch to darken the deep areas? Wendy

Just finished my latest carving!

I found a very dry Sycamore stump and decided to carve an Easter Island head.

Photos to be added shortly as it is now finished with mahoganny stain and wax finish.

DUM DUM!

Beautiful finish on the Moai. I like the way the wood grain shows up in the tiki smile- shows the depth of the cuts. Nice work all around!
