Well I finally got around to putting some stain on this little guy...I saw a two toned stain tiki head which I thought looked great so I kinda stole the idea thanks Amate!!! Anyway...here she is...not too sure what to think about it yet, it seems like some parts of the wood didn't take too well to the stain..oh well, maybe it will grow on me...lol

Nice work man, and yeah, it's an addicting thing. Sometimes, even when I have really fun stuff to do, like going surfing or fishing or whatever, I find myself getting kinda pissed if I don't have a couple of hours to work on the tikis every weekend.

Just a suggestion, but at this point in your "tiki evolution" it might just be time for you to go to Lowes & buy a cheap torch, and start expirmenting with a little charr in recessed areas for a little contrast. I just burn in the recesses & and then sand off the excess. It's quick & easy and (to me anyway) makes it a bit more "multi-dimensional".

But either way your stuff is looking good.

I swear, the Florida contingent is growing stronger by the day!
