YES! That is so sweet. Just perfect, the way I like to see 'em. The stain is so even, and is the perfect color choice. What kind of wood is it, and what stain?

Actually it's white pine with an English chestnut stain. A good trick is to use floral toner (Design Master, available at Michael's Crafts) to even the look of the tiki when the stain dries. It is a transluscent, fast trying tint made for coloring dried flowers. Ever wonder what on earth will get stain out of your skin? Avon Skin So Soft does the trick like a champ, leaves a nice scent like your mom's medicine cabinet, and repels mosquitos, too!

Hot Damn BK! You haven't missed a step!

Bringing this guy to Huki with you or will we have to wait for the Mai Kai to see him? Can't wait to see a live BK Tiki before me.

You know BK, one hesitates to make judgements like this, but I find you one of my fav TC posters.

I love your woodwork as well as your sharp tiki eye.

It's good to see you back and adding to your thread.

Your way of sharing is something that we all should be as free to do since we all get better by it.

Big MAHALO to you for that.
