I'm going to leave this one rough. I'm calling it finished. Made of Cedar Elm at just under 15 inches.

Thank you all for lookin' in and the compliments.

Jerome - I am pleased with the way the marq turned out. I have more of them planned.

Will - I enjoy making the photos and it doesn't require as much patience as the carving. If you can use the photos, you are more than welcome to.
Bye the way, you guys in Florida are killing us with those grinders.

Beautiful work on the latest Amate! He looks pretty menacing,
don't think I would like to run into him in a dark alley.

On second thought, maybe I would. I could stuff him under my arm
and take him home!

Phenomenal! You are really churning these guys out. Is that the sunken gardens I spy in the background??

Watango - I'm glad you looked in. You need to post more often. Your stuff is great!

Thanks so much Jerome. Always nice to get encouragement from one you admire.

Will - I haven't gotten around to doing a happy tiki yet...perhaps some day. Your thread has some of the coolest stuff on here right now. I even learned what a muddler is...and for a beer drinker from Texxas, that is an accomplishment. It occurred to me that I carved a billy club several years back as a prop for a piece I working on. I think it could be used as a muddler. I'll have to dig around in the closet and see if I can find it.

Big T - I've finally been making some progress now that it's cooled off. We had a couple day when it didn't even reach 100 degrees! I had to break a quilt out of the cedar chest. Yes, the photos were taken at Sunken Gardens.

Conga - It is such a coincidence that you brought up taking this guy home...I may have to send him for a visit. His foot broke off when I was putting him back in his spot in amate's spirit house after the photo shoot. Where did you buy the Gorilla Glue??? I checked at a couple of big box stores and could not find it.

Too bad about the broken foot Amate--but it's a nice clean break and should be an easy
fix for you. Up here we can get Gorilla Glue at Fleet Farm, an upper midwest "anything
and everything" store.
He'd be a welcome guest at Conga's Northwoods Tiki Rehab Center...but full recovery could
take a LONG time.
