Thanks guys, Appreciate the support.
Haven't been doing much but here is a piece TikiG pulled out of my "Box of 50" and asked If I could do anything with it.
This piece was more than a few years hiding in that drawer/box. Just gave him Paua eyes today and will finish him up this weekend. The eyes are just sitting in for now, epoxy coming soon.

Thanks for the Pic Bullet, I'm Happy he made the trip with no issues. Yeah, TikiG got to look in the box,, saw Curly before he got shipped out too!! Can't wait to see the Tiki Room Photos..

TikiG, Thanks too. Your guy is finished and will be finding his way home soon.. I gave him a 2 tone cord Ala TikiMango!!!!(thanks Ray.)

Pjc5150, thank you too!

Thanks a bunch Surfin, This giand piece of Abalone came from our own BK, Basement kahuna for the uninitiated and I think it was California Abalone, about 8 inches across.

The eyes are large, Almost 1/2" across and hollowed out in the back down to 1.5mm. They glow a bit red with a back light but are not as translucent as I had hoped for, still they give an Evil looking glare!
Here are the final shots of this guy.

That's very cool, Ben. He looks pretty evil even without the backlighting. I like how the lips fit so well with the look of the "fins" all over his face.
