I think it looks awesome the way it is. You've managed to creat a tiki that looks like it was around 50 years ago. Clear coat it! I absolutley think you've stumbled onto a great style for tiki carvings. Some day when I have the money, I'd love for you to make a mistake tiki for me.

Thanks for the flower close up and again excelent job. The thing that screwed up the worst are the ones that I ended up liking the most because of the solutions that I tried.

And the one that I didn;t like are sawdust..

Hi Tammy - I think your staining turned out REALLY nice, especially for being the first time using that type of stain??

And that carving...well...simply amazing. You did a wonderful job and the stain just compliments it more.

I don't think any of my carvings and stainings have ever turned out how I expected them to. But I've been pleasently surprised after taking a few steps back and trying to look at it from a different perspective. I think this carving is AWESOME and , now that you're hopelessly hooked on carving, is just a precurser of things to come.

Just added a new bartop to our bar. I got permission from Mark n' Maggie over at http://www.velvetglass.com to try my hand at one of their mosaics. THANK YOU!
