Thanks hil and H10, I debated about the colors and the walnut dye was darker than expected, so took it down a notch with some steel wool and also added a glass inlay. Also started a 7 footer, a log of birch from a friend. Heavy and pulpy it will not be my favorite but I love the bark so will leave sections to the finished piece.


Thanks so much to my pal Will carve for the casting/lamp. I have not had a chance to look for the right shade, but decided to use one I had laying around. I decorated it with favorite images from The Book of Tiki using markers. The square shape is not right and I will look for an oval shape, but at least I can now use it.

Cy,
That shade's the bomb.
I like the coco nut monkey too.

Over the Thanksgiving weekend I headed north to the winter wonderland of Orlando - it got down to the 60s! So I broke out the one of very few long-sleeved shirts and was representing Frog island Tikis the entire day at Disney.

Glad you like the shade, I'm getting more used to the shape of it Will. Aloha thanks for representing, I'm sure they told you that the shirt entitles you and your family unlimited E tickets. Also happy you guys noticed the coconut monkey, I have been wanting to do that for quite some time now, this piece of birch was big enough on top to allow it.

Luv mr devlin!!! Hmm, steel wool will take off some of the dark tone?! I may have just learned a new trick!

Gracias Laz, H10, I worked hard on both the flow and colors, thanks for noticing. Hacked on both "Webster", a beauty piece of purple heart, and my favorite wood, jelutong, for the last few weeks.

It's lil' but he knows how to use it. Thinking on stringing a puka shell necklace across for the mouth/teeth and hanging something for eyes, but I have not figured all that out yet. He will be the top portion of another piece. Happy Holidays to all my TC friends!!!
