I'm typing this kicking back after a weekend long carving workshop with Mr Tiki Beat himself - Marcus Thorne! Very Happy If you've had the opportunity to participate in one of these workshops and didn't, kick yourself now - and HARD. Marcus is a great teacher and such a down to earth and humble bloke, and it was a pleasure hanging with him and a bunch of other fine folk all weekend talking tiki art and carving Very Happy

Everyone got a pre-marked out log, ready to carve.

As part of the package everyone gets a basic toolkit to start carving too - awesome!

This is how mine finished up after 2 days of carving. Basically she just needs some minor finishing up, sanding and lacquer.
