Brown show polish? Lol.

LOL, I didn't invent that. Someone around here used it long before me. I was browsing through some older posts and saw someone else had used shoe polish as well. I want to say it was bowana, but cant remember for sure.

Got these four tang masks ready to stain. The 2nd one from the left doesn't have eyes like the others, just the eyelids. I'm still debating whether I'll put those in or not.

Hey will maybe I'll give that brown shoe polish a try sometime! The masks look great. Can't wait to see them stained.

finished the masks. These are made out of a plank of wood i ripped from a log that had mostly rotted away. I figured I would finally do something with it before it completely crumbled. I think i had more fun forming the ears than the rest of the masks!

LOL, oh crap I hadn't even thought of that! I'll never do justice to a boat like you did Will. I think we can now retire tiki canoes. Maybe I should just send the oar to you.

Many thanks cy, niceworks, conga. Five tikis in 2 weeks, plus a couple of hand size carvings (actually four to be exact!). Those logs were all bonfire candidates that I decided to see how fast I could turn them into tikis.
