Brilliant! I love the color of that avacado wood, and the natrual curve really gives it some character.

Tfisher,

Wow, man does that look great! I needs to gets me somma that! Thanks for posting more pics, it looks even better than I thought. Was it fresh/green when you carved it? It looks like it didn't check/crack or anything?

Great piece. My favorite part is the moi on top. He looks all irritated and pissed off, like he can't believe the other two guys are making him do this!
