Thanks Benz! He is a little evil...

Here is today's progress. This being only my second tiki carving, these were foreboding waters - but I think it came out okay. It ain't no Benzart Lono, but it's a start!

I started by drawing the braid on the computer (blasphemy!) and printing it out on adhesive backed paper...


Then, I scored the wood through the sticker and peeled it away...


Here is the scary part where I was sure I would hork the whole thing up...


But, at the end of the day, it all worked out. Musta been the Mojito.

Tiki #2 - "HearNoExcuses Tiki" is finished. I have decided now, after my first tiki "Stogey Tiki" was made from Olive wood, and this was carved from a Pine log... SOMEONE FIND ME SOME PALM WOOD! Let's just say these types are "knot" the best.

Anyhoo - here he is...

Yo, Seek - The Tiki Bog rocks! I just found the Waffle Head post and the pics of the bog, and when I escape to the way north someday, I'm there!

By the way, after seeing Waffle, I'm a little embarrassed you had to endure my painful attempts at carving. He's frickin' AWESOME!
