Where did you buy the Gorilla Glue??? I checked at a couple of big box stores and could not find it.




I found mine at a local Rite Aid, but you can check for it in your area here;

I've had that happen too.
I keep the feet tied together
like on a stump, for that reason.
You could dowel it too.

Its always gonna be a weak spot, due to the location, I suggest using dowels and glue. That would make it strong and durable.

I had already roughed this one out when the dual pigtails occurred to me. I had just enough material left to pull it off. I like the concept so I started another one similar to the rough and chubby fellow at the top of the previous page. It will give me more room to exaggerate the "dualies".

Duuuuude, you are killing it! If I win the lottery I'm gonna come over and buy your whole spirit lodge.

I need to come through SA and pick up some tips from you this time!

Ya Man,
Nice, CHA-CHING extra credit.
The swept back head dress braces it so you can make the legs thinner.

Nixxon/Conga –Thanks for lookin’ in and the comps. Always appreciated!

Will – It was a long time before I attempted a Ku and now I’m really enjoying them. I don’t think I copied the dual pigtails but my subconscienc may have picked it up somewhere along the way. I'm just trying to incorporate more air into these as they evolve. Got a couple more on the way.

Big T. We definitely should go out for a couple of beers and talk shop. I’m just always so pressed for time when I’m down your way. I hope you got some of that rain a couple of weeks back. It rained steady here for 4 hours. I went out into the yard afterwards and was struck by the countenance on this guy. He seemed so thankful for the much needed rain and content to just drink it in.




Since the previous Rainman is non-Tiki, I’ll post a Kon-Tiki to cancel him out.



Pygmy headhunter’s war club/muddler. 29 inches of mountain cedar.





Another angry Tiki.

Awesome job Amate!
Especialy love the war club/mulder... a unique and revolutionary concept! "Drink shots" or "beat shots" ! Isn't it?
