'Bout time. Seriously, the thing is looking good. I'm glad you managed to find the time after spending so much time helping me with the Oasis stages.

Heath has taught me a lot over that last year and a half on how to get a Tiki to reveal itself from the log, but the most important lesson is to never give up. I can't tell you how many times he was going to "burn it", "scrap it", or "start over". Were all glad you kept at it cause dis a masterpiece fore shore!! Let me just tell everyone that this guy looks even better in person...and that is the unstained version. I can't imagine what it looks like now in person with his SoCal tan.

Heath, Really Really INCREDIBLE Job! That tiki will be hard for anyone to top, aren't you happy you stuck to it and finished him up?

I would not have believed that your tiki could get any more awesome but your amazing stain work stepped it up a notch. Great job!
