Y'know, it's possible that I have NEVER started a thread in this section.

A couple of nights ago, I got a wild hair and thought I'd take a stab at carving. I've carved pumpkins, but that's it. A couple hours here, a couple hours there, and here I am with my very own little tiki.









It took me about four hours total, I think? It's mahogany, and I'm just using a Dremel. Still needs stain and all that. I'm already looking forward to doing more.

Nicely done. My first tiki does not even come close.

Excellent work there Humuhumu, be careful, that tiki will bite you and the next thing you know you will be going out to buy a chainsaw! Good luck on the next one.

Very cool! I'm beginning to think there's no tiki endeavor you won't master.

Thanks for all the kind words, guys! I've already picked out my next two designs. This fella should get stained tomorrow, if all goes according to plan.

Did my second carve tonight after Wanda went to bed, this is a small trim piece that will accompany the tiki in a larger project. I've only done a first pass of sanding, I'll probably do just a little more cleanup on it and final sanding & stain tomorrow.

Here's what these pieces were carved for: a new drink menu for my home tiki bar!

I just posted a bunch of photos and details in Other Crafts, here's the thread:

That's great work for a first timer! Neat idea for the menu holder too.
