The first one was Cocobola. I thought it was walnut at first then found out what it was.
I may have enough for 1 more similar size.
You are on the list.
Can Anyone give me ideas on what I should honestly charge for these?

As far as pricing goes, you have to calculate your time and effort, with talent (which is considerable), with what the market will bare. It's your call. As for me $50 is where my comfort level begins to get tweaked. I doubt this helps.

The diamonds or Rinestones would be tacky on this guy but mother of pearl would be ok. I'll try to find some around here and see how it looks.
Basement Kahuna and McDougall have to pass right now so next on the list is Kanaka and then TikiBud, then JungleTrader and Polynesiac. Whoever wants it let me know.
Here is the Final with 6 coats of laquer
