Grass skirted Eye Candy, Judy Luck and Niva Moore! Ok, then there's the other Shenanigans with Sunset Mike, Atomic Tiki Punk, Keko Head and some of the other gang. What of it? we Love the Hula Girls and like dressing like wierdos and behaving like we never grew up. Nyaa, Nyaa, Nanny-Nanny Boo-Boo if you don't like it.

The Ku inspired Queen Palm getting a finish. This one had too many defects in the tree to bother with scrupulous detail on the lower portion. Such is the nature of it. He will go for reasonable price and somebody will take him home and love him.

Getting back to works on the watusi steer bone. Here is an experiment with a masked figure. It is awaiting stain, scrimshaw and additional polishing.

Indian Laurel Mounted on a branch section pedestal. A simple work that got a little more involved than I intended. Turned out OK though. Toothy, tunger, reptilian eyes, torch highlighting, marine varnish.

Finally getting to the Manzanita given to me by a visitor (thanks Norma Jean!)

The wood is really beautiful stuff. The carving is kept simple in these works. The toothy guy has Golden Mahogany stain and teak oil finish. His first day on display, A woman from international tiki market place fell in love with him on the spot and adopted him!
The prayer guy has the same color and finish. He is a twisted branch and is mounted on a section of Indian Laurelwood. He is in the curing process now. Gorgeous texture this wood.I'll be using Manzanita when I can get it.
