I was just looking back through your thread and saw where I posted a week shy of a year ago---I can see you've made some progress. The more you carve, the better you get and youz iz gettin' mo betta!

I don't know what possessed me the other day, but I have several adorable Tiki Tony wooden signs on my living room walls, and I've always wanted to try making one myself. I also wanted to do something with my mini-palm set other than slice my hands up. So I carved a little sign to hang in my Cheap Plastic Tiki Mask Bathroom. Granted, it's made of wood, but I still think it fits in nicely.

Been meaning to say - it would be cool if you did a series of plaques like this about different classic mugs.

Where it says 'TIKI' put the name of the mug. And do it all with antique brown/black/white paints or stains, and final-coat the thing in 2 coats of amber shellac. They'd look great!

Sadly, that was the first thing I did. I broke out a fresh box of band-aids for the occasion.

That's a great idea. It would have been tough to fit the word "Mainlander" on this little piece.

I'm going to switch over to clay for a couple of weeks. I'll get back to wood for the next Chop.

Here is the latest in what seems to be a series of silly signs.

Hey Tiki-Kate! Your tikis look awesome! The little plaques are great! Any plans to carve any to sell?

I haven't done any carving myself, but with all this inspiration, it's probably only a matter of time...

It was great getting to meet you at the Tiki Room 45th Anniversary!

I feel like a dork for not noticing this thread before. I've seen you work on almost all of these pieces, but never really saw the finished product.

Muy Bueno Chica!

I want to live you in your tiki filled home!

Thanks, Eric.

I've never really thought about selling my stuff, but I love carving these signs. So that may happen at some point.

You should try to make it to one of our Chops. They're a great place to learn.

I'm so glad to have met you too.

Thanks for the encouragement, Ken.

And Nelva, I'd post more often if I could actually get around to finishing anything. Oy. But I'm glad you finally got to see some of the things I've been able to complete.
