HOLY REAR VIEW-MIRROR PENDANT BATMAN!

VERY NICE! I see you weren't kidding when you told me at Coontiki that you had a Walnut farm! Let's see more.

8ft! Perfect! Thanks!

Conga...!!! Thanks for noticing! It's an '87 Regal Limited. I know where all the miles came from. It's a cream puff! I love this car.

That would be an understatement.

It's a 307 v8 totally stock with a rochester 4bbl. It's a dog, but it's still fun. I gave it to my kid when he became an Eagle Scout, so I guess it's not my car, technically.

So one night, the car got wrecked,

I think you've gone Batty... And Well done too. Were you ever the "Bat Boy" when you were a kid??
Keep up the good work.

The more I think about the bat tikis, the more I think they would look cool hanging in the rafters or palm fronds of a tiki bar helping that layered look. Also bats are a common theme in PNG carvings.

I've started another bat tiki. This one will be flying. My mom also suggested that I make a few for up under the raffia fringe around the top of her tiki bar! That's a great idea JohnnyP! Yeah, I'm batty I guess!

Bat Tiki #2 (and 3) - came out of the walnut I got at the Farm last weekend. It started out as a hunk of log, and I used a band saw to get the rough shape.

Thanks Raffertiki - yes! She's got her own tiki bar. Here's a link to some pictures:
