All good stuff.
You're defiantly getting this "carve deep" thing down.

I have been enjoying your posts ATTC, thanks for the props! I appreciate it Vampiress, the idea came to me after endlessly looking at the big block of bass wood inhabiting my garage and thinking it may look good as a hanging gong kind of thing. Skip the angle strap will be covered with rope but I have been pondering what to do with the eye bolts and hooks. The best I came up with was to wrap 'em with jute but your trick o' the trade sounds better, thanks! Will I try to walk the line between deep carving and messing with the structural integrity of the piece. My yard is littered with the failures. I received the much anticipated arrival of Tikiskip's package today and what a treat!! Mixed in with the three floats were trimmings, chain, and assorted goodness that will surely find their way on future tikis. Thank you so much!!!

The smallest yellow float looked best.

I will add yellow fabric to the back panel, highlights to the carving, and back lighting to finish.

Was not going to add that float as I thought it too small.
Glad it worked for you.

Can't wait to see what you come up with on the others.
Let me know if any of that trim you can use they I can let you know what it is and where to buy.

It was a perfect size John, thank you again! The yellow color dictated the rest. I added an athletic gold felt back ground, then amber and red back lighting. I will throw in a few yellow highlights to the poplar carving, clear coat and be finished.


I added orange and clear paint to "Koko". A good steel woolin' to remove the shine and a few light colored brush strokes to the two sets of teeth will see him complete.

Need to see a close up of that small detail on top of
both tiki.
Really nice, is that carved in?

PS that picture you posted of the box I sent you is on the image page already for Google
I think it was.

The yellow board does a lot to display the carve but
the light makes it pop
