made the "Fron-Tikis" a bit more tourist oriented. Actually, it does give them something to do, besides just laying there.

Where do you guys get the basswood from? I'm not familiar with that wood here in Az.

I got the Basswood in 2",3",4" blocks 12" long, from www.qualitycarvingsupplies.com I got 1/2 X 1/2 sticks of basswood from the craft department at Walmart. Like some one said, it doesn't have a very interesting grain pattern, but it carves pretty easily. Good for a newbie like me.

Thanks Doug. I'll have to check out Walley World. I need some cheap stock to destroy on my first few attempts.

Keep up the good work Capt. Doug. Keep looking for free wood too, thats the way you find out. Loki is right about the Queen palm, but it makes nice masks, if you slice it in half then it's easy to clean out the soft center.

thanks for the input Ben, you guys that know what you're doing don't realize how much your comments mean to newbies like me/us.

Sure we do. I can remember when I first found TC and then started carving again. The support was very warm and helpful.

The two pieces that got me started into carving. I found these in my mom's curio cabinet. A neighbor gave these to me when I was still in grade school, so that would make it either in Calif. or Texas. Any of you fellas recognize your work? I moved around so much as a kid, I don't remember the man's name, and I still haven't been able to duplicate his skill level.
