Thanks everyone for the nice comps on the bar...it was really fun to build.

A little update on the marq mask...since the burning thing seems to be taking off i thought i'd try my hand at it....he gets stained and finished this weekend.





thanks again for looking and more goodies soon.

Loki!

Great work on the bar! I love the originality of the pictures and it looks great sitting in your place. And the mask...it's just great. I really like the style you've got going with the Marqs.

The bar and the Marq both look great, I wish I had the space for some projects like that. Nice work Loki.

pdrake...we made a template for the 'S' shape and hand drew the supporting lines. Tomorrow i'll try and get a picture of the templates we made and the process. The S Shape just continues but once you get the hang of the smaller lines its not to bad...the hardest part was centering the shapes so they would end up at the corners. It took time and lots of erasure.

Thanks Papio, we had to move a huge ugly piece to make it work, but it is much cleaner looking in the room now. i appreciate your comments, coming from a great talent like you and Benz it means more to me. Glad you approve.


We've got some more goodies coming in the next few days....stand by

pdrake...this is the template we made for the edging work around the bar. We cut the shape into a stenceling paper, traced the shape so it would line up for the corners and added the other lines by hand. Tedious, but the stencel helped big time.



The marq mask is finished. The owner wanted an old aged look, so i think i got close.








Papa Bear has been busy with pendants.






It's been a busy few weeks in our garage...will add pics of the shelves when they are insalled later tonight.

Again thanks for looking.

Your last tiki turned out Really great Loki, the finish is Supurb. Enough to drool over!
The Pappa Bear pendants are Awesome too. He should really Not carve more than 1 or 2 Thousand!! He really has the knack.

Lots of nice stuff going on there. Great bar with a couple new nicely done tikis, not to mention the pendants. Keep going at that pace and you will fill up your house in no time.
