I found these miniature wood barrel shaped wood pieces at a craft store. I thought with a bit of detailing and staining I may be able to in incorporate them into a new build. A Tiki trading post sounds fun and yes, I still have to finish that dang mini Mai Kai sign one of these days.

Looking forward to "Trader Trav's". How you're gonna weave miniature fishnets?

Trav, Glad to see that you back at work, 'fighting the good fight.'

I'm planning for the "Sea Creatures of the South Pacific" tiki art swap is keeping me busy these days, along with work, my new grandson & life in general. But I love checking in on your artistic adventures in mini land!

Great job I love these.
They kinda remind me of these old Christmas decorations.
You need some with snow and santa.

Thanks guys!! I do have an idea for miniature fishing nets but the idea of snow in miniature is going to have to be on hold, we will have a bunch of the real stuff soon enough Here is the first try at a mini rum barrel. Thanks again.

All your miniatures are amazing Uncle Trav and that certainly looks like a miniature barrel now. Nice work.

Snow is coming down here at my home port so the basement workshop is up and running. Went back to the craft store and found some very small wood blocks. A bit of detailing and some stain and now I have a crate to add to a future miniature build. I have some ideas in the works for more items as well. Thanks for taking a look.

I bet these take as much labor as a larger size. Small is not easy and you do a terrific job. They are perfect, Wendy

Thank you for all the kind words guys! My work situation has improved to the point where the fun things have to wait for some free time now. One of the things I love about doing these miniatures is finding new ways to use common items and tools for a build. My basement workshop is on the other side of the wall from my lounge. A perfect combination for escape and inspiration when cabin fever sets in. Thanks again.
