Sorry mate

My friend has moved interstate and I cant contact him, and I dont know the brand. I live in Australia so brand might not help anyway...

I searched for "magnifying light" on google and this is one that came up
http://www.discountneedlework.com/detail.asp?Product_ID=8MG600
this one too
http://www.ocwhite.com/html/specification.html

See what you can find. I suggest places such as craft stores, modelling and hobby shops, etc. A jeweller may even point you in the right direction. My Grandma uses a similar thing because she has bad eyes - see if there are any companies in your area selling these.

Beautiful, nice work on the shading/highlighting there. Do you have to cover it in Poly? Couldn't you just do a wax finish?

Thank you one and all! To answer your questions/remarks:

No, it is not another one of my suits! Maybe if I included the tiki though, someone might trade me for it?

Thanks Ben. He's actually #4. I've started another one today that I'm going to give to a friend who's giving me some free software. I'm finding the thought of letting someone else have one of my tikis very difficult to deal with!

I suppose it does look like he's having a snooze, which is even funnier when you find out that he's laying on my bed spred!

I tried to put in some detail. A lot of what you see as detail came from pieces that broke off durring carving, so I had to carve around them to make it look good!

Using wax is a great idea. I've never even put any stain or finish on a carving, so I'm not sure how to proceed.

The marq/hawaiian thing wasn't really intentional. I just did one feature at a time, and the ones you see were the easiest for my amature hands and my cheap tools to carve.

It's so much easier to do when you have the support of folks like yourself. Mahalo everyone!

Thats the best way to learn, break something off and have to work yourself out of it. Thats when your carvings start to get that deep detail, Keep it up and wheres the pic's of the other one you started? come no come on, we need to see'em.

Looks great, FD. It really does look like you've got some stain/highlighting going on there. Great job.

I can understand the pain of giving him away - but think of how happy you would be if you were given it, that is how happy the other guy will be. Even more so cause you have hand carved it, not just flogged off some crap you found at a garage sale.

More!
