Here in Hawaii you see tiki’s like there all over the place. Either carved into tree’s, cast in cement or tattooed to arms of people. Just a simple scroll saw project cut from Koa. I borrowed the design from Steve Good and tweaked it a bit, about 12” tall

Larry, that Tiki is gorgeous.
Great job and I love that Koa wood.
Thanks for showing.

Nice work Larry could do with one of those to freak my dreadful neighbours out, Kind of cute though. Timber looks really cool.

I like this a lot. I’ve been trying to find a way to incorporate tikis into a desktop project (speakers/monitor stand) but the carving intimidated me. Never thought to cut them on a scrollsaw.

The scrolling was really easy…but I have been scrolling for about 30 + years. The wife liked it so much she requested a large one for our new house here in Hawaii. Never have been good with spiral blades, but might have to practice if I make a large Tiki.

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments.
