After having 2 of my older carvings crack and split really bad I was ready to put the chisels down for awhile.

But after chatting with Benzart and Raff I decided to keep at it. Besides, its only wood and I learned something.

So here is my new bench wich is waiting for many coats of varnish and a place in my yard.

Thanks to all the talented artists that take time to leave C&C . It means lots and helps us rookies learn and grow.





Mahalo.

Looks really great Rodeo. What stain did you use, I like it dark like that.

It turned out awesome, Ro-deo. Is that its final destination, or do you have some place else in mind?

Great work Rodeo! Nice stuff all around.

If your tikis split in half, please feel free to send both halves of afforementioned split tikis to me. I'll make sure they are disposed of properly.

Thanks everyone for your kind words.

Ben, the stain was a dark mahagony, the pics look darker than it is.

Raff , I am thinking this may out back on our deck.

TikiGardner, I hope they dont split that bad, but your tops on my list. I did cut one in half and made a mask out of it.

Thantos, It was a fun project and I am thinking of making another.

Mahalo for looking.

I love the bench. I'm always trying to think of a new way to incorporate tiki into my backyard and this is a fantastic way to do it. Great idea!!

Good stuff
