Thanks for all the warm feedback and welcome. I was starting to worry that my work wasn't up to par since I didn't get any hits after awhile.

TikiMango - The wood for #1 and #2 are from the same tree, I think it's some sort of maple. It grows down at my beach house in NJ but its been sitting in my garage drying out for at least two years. It cuts real nice. My next project involves one of two 4 foot white cedar logs with a 10 inch diameter I got from an Amish guy. I used a propane torch but will probably skip the torching on #2 since there's more detail.
Lounge Tiki - Good luck on your larger full body tiki. I'm going to try my hand at a 4 footer when I finish #2.
Benzart - I think I'll take you up on the advice for staining #2. Any advice on brand/color? I read various posts and it seems like everyone does different coats of different products to achieve an amazing overall look.
Seeksurf - I'm hoping to pull off that tall Lono holding the surfboard you did. Someday.... Need to start little and work big down the road.
