OK, usually I hang out over there, in the carving thread. This is
a carving, but it's not a tiki (even though there are tikis in it) so
I'm tossing it here.
It's for my chiropractic friend...Dr Ves....it's the jungle clinic we're
going to open when we decide to run away from the recession. I hope
you like it









And....a shot of Petri the wonder dog

Looks great Congatiki! Welcome to "Other Crafts", the bastard stepchild of "Creating Tikis"

Most excellent! This is as tiki as anything - maybe more so than some tikis I've seen.

WoW! It's delightful & delightfully small (I really like miniatures). How big, or should I say, how small is this little beauty?

Many thanks Kirby, MadDog, Tikilizard, Babalu, AlohaStation and
WaikikiMoeKele. very appreciative of all of your comments.

You are welcome to stay anytime Babs, you just have to share some space
with Benzart. He already claimed the room with the view to the east. But
we can work something out, we'll turn it around so you can have an east view too:-)

And Waikiki....forgot to offer info on size. Not quite as miniature as it may
look...stands around 26 inches top to bottom.

It's kinda nice over here in the "other crafts" isle, I'll have to get over here
more often.

Hey...thanks for the bump Hank...and thanks for the nice comments everyone.

You've inspired me to start another hut

Haven't posted in the carving thread for a month, although I have been spending
a great deal of time on a large non-tiki project and I have a Polynesian-inspired
piece that needs to be finished up.
