...well, as much as I'm gonna work on it anyway. Got to learn the tools on this one, and learned a LOT!
For a stain, I tried using Winsor-newton oil paint with turpentine, worked ok.
Now I have to learn tool sharpening, and find more wood!
Thanks for all the advice!

Great style!

I never would've thought about using oil paint! Kudos for keeping it new!

Outstanding! Now that crack doesn't look so bad after all. You have a real knack for design. If this is your first, I can't wait to see the second.

Thanks, youz guys.
Raffer- twas that beechwood that I shoulda never used...cracked.
Poly- Nauset bites. Coast Guard Bch has been kicking though. We had a nor'easter offshore for a week, which brought us 6-8' waves! Must be from the tiki gods...I'll be damned, it works!

alright, alright! You guys are funny.
Obviously, you don't realize the scope of the problem here! I need WOOD! Still haven't been able get a good source. I went off Cape to a hardwood mill open to the public...all small stuff mostly...pieces of cherry, basswood and the likes. I pickd up these mini 3"x3" pieces of cherry, which carves nice. But when I carved it into a Maori, it started to like some male anatomy! Har-har...take a look...
