Got the stain and sealer on it and I like the color and finish. This one turned out pretty good.

NO, This one turned out WAY TOP Shelf. The detail is Very smooth and finished and the finish is perfect. You have outdone yourself on this one.

Fine work ! I like the expressions and the cemetery of the top and bottom looks
like a Easter island hat?

Trader Tark, Ya, Thanks for looking at my stuff. Ya, The planter is something I did on a whim with a short log of palm. I plan on doing some more in the future. I want to incorporate more metal into my design. I really dig your stuff and look forward to seeing more in the future. Keep up the excellent work. I am a hotrodder too. Here is my 29 Model a RPU

Well on Saturday I delivered my latest creation to the Kon Tiki. After some debate on where to place it, the owner decided he wanted it to be inside the restuarant/bar instead of outside where vandals may have damaged it. This made me happy as I put quite a bit of time into it and also the tough Tucson weather would not beat it up. They want me to do one for outside still and I am looking for and idea for that location. Feels good to get a piece of my work on display(and get paid) in a place like this. I hope it's there for a long time. Here is a couple pics of where it sits. It's kinda in the back on the right if ya go into there to see it. "TucsonTiki" aka the Hairless Hippie

Thought I would try a shallow relief carve to expand my carving style a bit. Knocked this little fellow out this week. Still might put some kinda finish on it today. Starting to work on another large one for the Kon Tiki. Gonna try a lono style with a large headress with a full body. Hope the log I have picked out cooperates with me. Wish me luck! My girl thinks this one looks like Mr. Bill so I guess that's what I'm gomnna call it. Oh NO!!!!!!

So cool to have your tiki on display.

The head tiki is tight! simple original clean I like.

Did you make it to Tacoma in Aug? I thought about you but

Thanks, Ya, I made it there but not with the tikis. I flew up for a week and stayed with a freind. Will probably go again next year if the show is on.
