thanks everyone for the compliments, as far as buying some, i will sell Rarotongan god guys because they are a mix of a few others designs, but i'm not sure about "not so big Puka" because that is a Gecko'z design and i was making them and the rest of the display for him. i wouldn't feel right about selling one of his specfic designs with out his permision.

as far as the wood goes, i don't know what it is really, it is the biggest dowlling that home depot has, it is very soft and carves well, and sand well. I'm not a guy that knows alot about wood, someone said that it could be birch because of it color, but it could be anything. the only thing the tag says is hard wood dowl.

mahaloz Octane, the shelf will work well when displaying my new mugs. If I had da time to build it I would myself but you are saving me much time to concentrate(sp?) on other larger items.

If you want to make a small puka for da braddah go ahead. Thanks for asking. I cannot wait to add da display shelf to da rest of my stuff. Great job so far my friend.

thanks TNT tiki, and tiki5-0 for the compliments.

the stage is now done, at least on my end, as Gecko is is putting the finish on. here is some pictures of the stage before i shipped it out to Gecko.





Ragin Rarotongan, i got one of your guys finished, let me know if this is what you were looking for meaning the back and butt carved on the Rarotogan. i have to take another picture of the back as the one i took is too fuzzy.
