I hope I'm doing this right! Here's a pic of a Wood carving I've just completed. it is a 'Tiki' Frog. Since I could not find any reference to a Tiki Frog anywhere, I created my own! I carved it with hand tools on Walnut, finished with a light coating of linseed oil. I'd value any opinions!

Very nice piece with clean lines. Has an old vintage feel to it.

Welcome, Condortiki! Nice relief carving, and a really excellent original idea. You and Purple Jade must think alike, and that's a real compliment. Of course we'd love to see more...

WoW! What a great response! Thank You All!! I'm so glad that you like the little Tiki Frog! To answer the size question, it's about 4 inches wide, and about 9 long. As I get more carvings finished, I'll post! Thanks again!
