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.

Bob.

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.
