Time flies and so do horses. It's been a good year and a half since I wrote about carving tikis. I haven't carved a tiki since last summer.
Why not, you ask?
There are two reasons ...
I ran out of suitable cedar aka: jersey tiki wood and (more importantly) I misplaced my Dremel tool. Okay, so there you have it. My tiki carving secrets. I don't carve my tikis with hand tools or a blasted chainsaw. I used a Dremel. The trick is finding the right bit.
Errr ... the trick now is to find the darn Dremel.
"So what of these tikis?" you ask. "Show us some examples!"
Submitted for your perusal.

"That was then, you lazy artist!" You lament, "what about now?"
Ah, patience, little flyswatter.
I'm currently working on a prototype for the prototypical jersey tiki.
And what would that be?
Well, lets just say that it evokes the aesthetic of a jersey shore green head horsefly. And big hair. Really big hair.Posted by geekbooks at January 17, 2006 01:19 PM
