Some details of the latest tiki. Tried a few things different on this one. Subtle but still different.

BigT - not while in the pool but definitely next to it. So much so that I have to be careful that the shavings don't blow into it. In South Florida we only have 2 seasons - Summer and Spring - I am glad that we are entering Spring - was so chilly out the other morning, I almost had to put on jacket (got down into the 70s - brrrrrr!!)

Not tiki but close. This is my Day of the Dead puppet. Carved in foam. Carried him in the South Florida day of the Dead processional.

These are the palm Fronds all finished up. Very little sanding is needed. This one is about 12" tall


This one was an experiment that went wrong and then right. It was supposed to be twice as long with another tiki at the bottom. I didn't plan very well and broke it off as I was carving. The skull is carved through the mouth, jaws, eyes and crown. The eyes have palua inserts (afterthought would have been to make them in jade). With all of the should/woulda/coulda going on with this one - it still came out great.
