Thanks Benzart, you are our inspiration! Zoom in on the pic by my carving and you'll see it's of one of your works! Hope you don't mind!

Thanks TD, we've been talking about you and all your wonderful collection, can't wait to see it all "up and running"! We'll be on Pelee on the 23rd, but we'll stop bye the next week for sure! That is your log, I'm making sure I'm good enough to carve it first!

Freddimon, your stuff is getting better by leaps and bounds. Love the stain on this last one and the detail is really getting tight. Keep'em coming!

Great time at Tikidavids' *HUGE* collection of Tiki in a really cool back yard setting. It's an instant teleport to another world!
Benzart, I can't thank you enough for the props! You are *THE* inspiration for carving Tiki's. I just finished reading your 100 page thread and it really got my creativity pumped; just to know that there is a master like you to guide all of us carvers! Did you start a new thread yet?
