Finally the Docier on this work.

Born at Don the Beachcomber, in the former "Sams Seafood" of the late Fifties "Tiki" period he has a heritage that is worthy of a coat of arms. May he bring happiness with him wherever he goes for as long as he exists.

Deliah, Owner of Don the Beachcomber. First time I have ever asked her to pose. This is inside the hidden village area in front of the fountain. I might have to get another image with the fountain going. It looks appropriate there. More than one person has called it a "She" I hadn't thought about what sex it might be; but that means the beholder can decide for themselves.

Using the "Blackened Approach" on something besides fish. This is a very blotchy piece of branch from an unknown tree. The appearance didn't hold much promise on it's own, but the burning gives a unique character. I'm still doing minor refinements on him before he gets mounted. He is cute though...

Used some leftover Urethane I've had for too long. I think I should stick to varnish, but it does give it a weathered look that has an appeal.

The Beautiful Jennifer of Don's Dagger Bar graces the completed "Char" guy. He's mounted on chiseled, charred Orange wood and at 20 inches will make a nice addition to a Tiki Bar, Outdoor Spa desk etc.

This is the first time I have chosen to completely burn the surface for appearance but it won't be the last. It gives a nice character. I boils down to bringing out the best of what you have. Somethings become better than expected when treated with TLC and a little advise from your Carver Spirit.

The progression of a Log. This is Macadamia Nut tree.(how Appropriate) The wood has splits and the bark is difficult to peel. None of which will stop the Tiki from happening. The good news? It seems to take detail well.

More Manzanita.

Passers by really enjoy the beauty of this wood. I'll use it whenever I can get it.
