A little work on a smaller crate. Any smaller and I'll start to go cross eyed.

Trav, I just got back to TC, and am so impressed by your work. I've been thinking about making a Tiki hut myself for my garden rr. You've given me a ton of inspiration! Rocky.

Hi Rocky. Thanks for taking a look and I'm glad you enjoy my work. It's been a little slow going with the hut construction lately as I have been working quite a bit. When you start a build please start a thread and share your progress. Thanks again.

Trav- with items like that,
your tiki bar could contain more stuff than any other tiki bar in the world...

Way cool

Jon

Now here is a fun one. Bigbro asked how I was going to make miniature fishing nets. Well I'm trying to use of all things cheesecloth. It seem to be the right scale but I'm trying to work out the right look for the finished net.




This tiny coil of rope has been the easiest piece so far. Just thread coiled and dyed but I think it looks okay with the other cargo items I have made so far.

Very nice Trav, I think that cheesecloth net is going to catch a lot of little tiny sharks!

Trav, great idea with the cheese cloth. I posted some pictures of an A frame close to my apt. in General Tiki, under the listing "tiki as a job" It might be the model I make after my Tiki shadow box.

Thanks for the comments guys. I am doing a test to see if wood will work out for the roof for my next build. I have always used paper or card stock for this in my other models. Here is the test roof in the glue up stage. I use the metal flats to hold the pieces in position until they are dry. I will post some pics of how it turns out a bit later. Thanks for taking a look.
