So, I'm working on this one. Rough cut the body & head, no face yet, and this one is going to have a surfboard standing behind him, which was inspired by a keychain I bought at the longboard house when I was getting a fin for my new surfboard.
I'd like the surfboard to stand out a bit and be a different color, so what kind of stain or whatever do you guys recommend? I cut it from a sabal palm (I think).
Oh, by the way....looks like my cheap-o craftsman electric chainsaw officially gave up the ghost about an hour ago. It lasted a whole month. Glad I paid extra for the exchange warranty!
But I'm stoked about this new tiki. My first that isn't just a head, this one has actual hands & feet. Hopefully I get the surfboard outline right. Think I'd better make some sort of template or something so it's somewhat symmetrical.
