April, 2016: Steve from New York gets his new guys had some issues getting them through Airport security. "?" Now whoever hijacked a plane with a Tiki? A section of Indian Laurel Wood gives me my latest Handsy guy. Light Golden Mahogany stain, marine varnish. He came out nicely, especially next to Jennifer (lucky guy)

And one for which I though in the towel. Despite great effort the Manzanita was eaten through by Longhorn beetle larvae and had to be dispositioned to the fireplace. Not often that I give up, but I know when I'm licked. Rest in Peace little fella!

Mike, i had problems just last month trying to get through TSA security with a tiki. After scanning it, they decided it would be ok.

The Beachcomber "Jenns" and my two latest. Both of these guys were not easy! Manzanita is both hard and brittle and occasionally there must be compromise. The Gnarly branches with a great deal of sanding with ascending grits can yield a presentable work. I'm thinking of these as Organic style (No, not like from Mothers Market) because it's really a dance with the wood, where you let it lead and try not to force it. The "Organic" Beauty of the burl comes out and if complimented by a little shape.

Of course we don;t need to talk about the The Jennifers shapes now do we?
