My Story

 Aloha and welcome to handcarvedtiki. My name is Tapa. I live on the island of Oahu Hawai'i. My passion is wood carving and have been doing it for many years. My father before me and my grandfather before him handed down the skill of wood carving to me. I continue my family's trade the traditional way by carving my designs with hand held chisels and a wooden mallet. All pictures here are pieces carved by me and each one is carved by hand. All wood used is local found on the island of Oahu. Mahalo for looking and if you find a piece you like know that it is one of a kind. Also if you have an idea of what you want and dont see it here feel free to email me directly for a custom carving. Mahalo~ Tapa

 I am now carving at Dole Plantation, Oahu HI. Dole is located at 1550 Kamehameha Hwy Wahiawa HI 96786.
