Pablus, Your words kind of open the door for some creative fun...ok, ok, I'll jump off of the rabbit thing....I don't know though....wabbit tiki? maybe.

Anyway, man there sure is more work to sanding a tiki than what I thought there would be....many more hours than I had planned on, and I could still stand to sand on these a little more. Stain - no clue? Got to jump away from these for awhile and think bamboo.

Looks like some concerts I went to back in my mushroom days.
The tikis are tight. So is the framework.

Wow, LOVE the rabbit war! Alot of time went into setting up those shots.

Is that your backyard? It looks to foresty to be San Diego. And how is that 2x12 suspended off the balcony?

Tikis look good. Do the hairstyles reflect those of the bride and groom?

Many comps to BABALU! The Wawbbit-Warfare shot is really nuts, I keep going back to it just
to find the expressions that I missed earlier. Great work...nice tikis too.

Uhhh, I remember those 'shroom days too...didn't take long for me to figure out that I was wacko enough without-um.

Yep, that's the back 40...it needs a trimming. That 2x12 is held up with a couple of clamps....sure is going to be mucho easier to build down than to have to build up. The roof has to be detachable. My kids aren't cool enough to sport dos like those on the tiki's.

Thanks....

Um, Babalu, you feeling ok? Are you getting enough sleep? Those rabbits scare me.....

Tikis are looking great! I'm pretty inexperienced in the stain department, but just started putting some marine varnish on my guy, and like how it darkens up the wood just a bit.

It's exciting seeing the progress on the bamboo as well, keep us updated.

Babalu, you are one weird individual............I like that in a person!

Great Tikis! I'm looking to stain/finish my Tiki from the Chop-Chop. I think I'm going to try out the marine varnish suggested by Mieko.

Peace, my wabbits.

Looks like Rabbit stew is coming soon, Can't wait. (Why else do you think the Tiki' start the wars between the Rabbits?
Excellent tikis , but I think they need to be smoother, like maybe sand them down to 1000 grit?? Ha! Love the wikkid Eyes on the one tiki too.

I think a lot of Clysdalles's tikis are done with mostly marine varnish. The only prooblem I had with it was the stirring, the stuff can separate out, so I stirred and stirred and stirred... I'll get some pictures up soon too.

Good progress, the rain messed up my ideas for a few days too, hope you're still on schedule.

Hey Mieko, thanks for the info. I think I'm going to have to go dark on those tiki's in order for them to gel with the alter.

Yesterday's progress didn't go as far as I hoped it would....hope to finish main roof structure today and move on.
