Love that Light-wave tiki Mijaba, excellent work.. Send me your address so I can send you some HARD wood to carve why don't'ya, and while I'm at it I can send some Softer woods too if you like. No sense punishing yourself and your tools all the time.
Now,Go back to work making more cool stuff!

thank you godz, seek and lizard. i ruined a 20 hour pendant of the same basic idea the night before---- drilling accident-- so i kinda hurried through this one--- it was still too late for gecko fest. guess i'll just call it mine 'til next year!
Here is "tijohu" finished--- his eyes have a faint glow--- i may refinish him--not sure yet, looking for feedback (he's supposed to be purple by request)...

oh--- knives, red oak, acrylic wash
