McTiki I have not had much spare time to be creative,with the short daylight hours the schedule has been hectic.My 7 year old grandson lives with me and most nights his mom works so I take care of him.I have made a commitment to myself to do more building.I have made some things but never took the time to post any photos.Thanks to you and conga for the kind words.happy holidays, Capo

Capotiki, how thick would you say the average cement is on the tube? From the pictures it looks about 1" with the built up areas about 2". Does that sound about right? I'm trying to make all the notes I can in hopes of doing this next spring. Temp outside right now is 30F. Thanks, Uncrichie.

I think on my seven footer that the walls aren't thicker than a 1/2 inch. And there are never any thicker areas. If there is a small build up, I use the wire to build it up first. Plus to get the cement to stick to the wire, you can't have it too heavy and far from the wire I find. But yours are truly different. I was going through the collection that I posted in the past and your named popped up. I thought wow its been a long time since, and the next day, there you were. Did your Spidey Senses tingle.

Hey Capo! Nice stuff! I especially like the feet on this guy:


And the treehouse in the tiki garden - well that's just over the top! Do you have a tiki bar in the treehouse? (I would ... make the kids play down the street!)

Nice!

I am absolutely facinated with your work! I live in the city & good logs are very scarce...this may be the answer to my carving passion.
