Well I think being laid off from work is starting to effect me. I never intended to make a paper hut. I sat down the other morning and looked through my well used copy of The Book Of Tiki and wondered if I could make a Polynesian type roof line out of paper. Not the type of thing one usually thinks about but boring times call for boring measures. I used heavy card stock and cut out the roof line and after that I made the body and so on. It is not made to be any certain style or even be super detailed just kinda stylized. I just brushed the whole thing with the tiki handyman's secret weapon amber shellac. About 7 1/2" tall and about the same long. Diorama size I guess. I still have to even out the color but it looks ok sitting on the bar. Just thought I'd throw it out there as a first attempt at this type of thing for folks to see. Thanks.

Here's how it started. Sorry for the exotic setting of my stove top for background but the light was good.
