Doug recently gave me permission to carve one of his creations and turn it into 3D. I had a commision to carve Dougs rendering of Wildsville Man from Tiki Caliente . I hope you like it . The drawing ...



Heres the Koa wood pendant . Its 4 1/2" tall and with all Dougs little details I even cut my finger . Ouch!

Nice! Isn't Doug's stuff fun to carve?
I haven't had very good luck with Koa though. Are you going to cast it up?

No its a one of a kind for Wildsville Man . Doug created this design just for him so now he has a necklace . Koa is a VERY hard wood but you just have to keep whittling away . The payoff is the color of the piece after you coat it . This just "pops" in the sunlight .

That's a great desing and a great 3d likeness of it. I like the extra 2 beads there, they add alot to the piece.
