Took some final pictures of some recent projects which have been sold or given away.
The alien TIKI went to my brother for a housewarming gift and now is decorating his indoor bar area which may be going Polynesian. Props to ALIENTIKI for the orignal idea and kind comments in a previous post.


The next tiki was my first hardwood attempt at carving (guessing its Florida Live Oak). The wood is hard as a rock and heavy too. Props to Bowana as the artist of the Tiki I copied from the pages of TC.

This next Tiki was carved by my father many years ago and I just added polished shell inlays to the eyes and gave it another coat of polyurathane. I also gave the little guy some chest definition to make him look tougher. Thanks Dad for taking the time to teach us wood carving and the appreciation of artistic endeavors.

KEEP YOUR CHISELS SHARP AND BANDAIDS CLOSE CYA BUFFBAD
