Aloha all, we just finished this custom sign at the request of a client - not really a tiki on it but (very tropical none the less) and I thought you might enjoy seeing it. She guided us in the design she wanted and picked out all the animals and colors.
It's a big one, 32" wide by about 17" tall. All redwood. I made the bamboo frame out of 1 1/4" rectangular pieces - first cut the outlines on the scrollsaw then ran 3 sides through the router with a 3/4" roundover bit.
I've always been a quick painter, I painted all the animals in about 4 hours.
I think it came out kind of nice. Thanks for looking.

You guys are incredible. I am currently saving up my clams to buy one of your "Enchanted Tiki Room" signs like they have in Disney world. I also am into African art as well, and that sign is definitely one of your best. keep up the great work.
