WOW, they really did turn out nice, RT! What a great conversation piece for your backyard barbeques! So.... how about those big cedar logs????

I absolutely love this. I like the idea of incorporating tikis into something actually functional like this, and it looks really perfect. What a great idea. And the extra carving on the bench sides ties it together perfectly. The tikis themselves looks great. One of the best things I've seen.
I want one!

Such kind words from such amazing artist that I respect and admire, make me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
It was fun to combine function and tiki and I am gonna try and do more along the same lines.
