they even came with a small band-aid holder with the flex cut logo on it



That is a strange sense of joke...

Good job on the big boy!

Thanks for the kind words gentlemen...they are always very much appreciated and totally motivating.

And yes...the new tools are fantastic!!

TGG...This is the torch I used. I bought it at lowes for $25. It burns great, fast, and the tank is still half full after doing quite a bit of work with it. It has a knob to adjust the size of the flame and a trigger for ignition.

I burned all the areas I wanted then went back and sanded all the lines to make it nice and clean. Such a great tool to add TONS of character and style to the tiki. Thanks again pjc!

You're welcome.

If there was one thing I could get picky about its the fact that the burn area can be a little TOO big sometimes, making it difficult to get into the tight small spaces...but they do make smaller torches with a much tighter flame so I guess ill just have to get one of those too!

finished another today...i really liked the way the last one turned out so i tried to make a similar one.

Now I have a pair of brothers, both from the same tree so they have to look alike right?

Thanks for looking!!
