Mike, I don't care for the term "toilet tikis", I prefer "restroom door indicators".

So I carved more today. It was pretty overcast all day, so I took one more pic of the Ku, since there were no heavy shadows. This one will dry out some until next weekend, when I'll burn and stain it.


I got to work carving the second stump today. This morning it was just a stump, here it is at 4PM.

It went fast, I'm much more comfortable carving a marq vs a ku.
This one will also dry all week, then get burned and stained.

Here's two shots from out in the street.

They look fantastic! You just increased the value of that home--and in this market, no less.

OK - Sorry about the "toilet tiki" crack

I love how the stumps became natural pedestals for the tikis, to set them up in a place of honor as they should be!

You don't even know. The house is a block off the lagoon, and two blocks from Tamarack Surf Beach in Carlsbad!

You did that in one day? That's amazing. Was it mostly chainsaw?

Nice work, Bill.
...and you didn't even have to use your protractor.

Davee, yup, the Marq was one day (so far), about 5 hours. Probably 50% chainsaw, 25% chisel, and 25% angle grinder.

Bowie,...yet. As in, didn't have to use the protractor yet.

These look great! I can wait to see the final after they are burnt. Are they going to get stain?
