This is my 1st carved tiki completed weeks ago...

Updated pics of my bar as I gather clutter...

John,
Carving looks great. Your bar's really coming together great also.

Johntiki, the Lanai has come a long way since the last time you posted pics! Where did you get the cool Sailfin?

Chris and Polynesianpop - thanks for the compliments...my parents actually got the fish from a guy at the marina where they keep their boat - they paid $50.00 for the marlin, a wahoo and a dolphin fish - they were all pretty rough and looked like they'd been stored in a dirty garage or basement for 20 years. I repaired the fins on the marlin with epoxy, repainted areas that were peeling and missing paint and even replaced the 2 whisker fins that were missing. It's an old one too - it's a skin mount and not one of the newer fiberglass replicas - its probably one of my most cherished possessions...

Johntiki, both the bar and carving looks great! What type of wood did you use for the carving?

The tiki is actually palm - I don't know the exact species though...it has a real thin smooth bark. I have another palm log with a thicker, rougher bark that I'm going to carve next...I'm thinking of doing a Moai...
