I like the small orange guys on "Eaton"
So does Frog island get its name because a lot of forgs are there?

Thanks amate and Jeff (hope you are healing), and yes skip there really is a Frog Island. You can see it on the top of page 17. No fish as it is all rain fed and gets too low come September but the frogs love it here. I agree and think the orange morsels added to Eatons' mouth and stringer sets the green off better. Will finish the carving portion of your sign this weekend and paint next.

Cy I just got the shirts you did for me, and they are great!
Check sent, am going to need more shirts.
Love the new tiki and art gallery it's looking great as well.
Maybe a few less white walls.

Happy you like the t shirts John, and I appreciate the positive feedback Watango. I put the first coat of paint on Skips sign. Thanks MadDog and Aloha for the sound structural advise.



I also worked on "Gus" an older piece that was damaged when a little kid grabbed his knife when I wasn't looking. Quite possibly my strangest effort.

I added a dark stain to "Louis" to make the teeth and eyes stand out more. He is weighted nicely and fun to swing.

Cy, that sign is looking GORGEOUS!!! I took care of my 3 yo grandson this weekend and discovered that they have a sensor that leads them straight to anything dirty, fragile, or dangerous. Quite an impressive pile of shavings under Louis!

Thanks for the comments friends! MDM I worked hard for that pile of shavings, thanks for noticing. Here is the almost complete Tikiskip sign. Next will be figuring out how to ship.


I'm no chemist but I thought that spar varnish was anti-water, but when I could not find my usual brand I decided to give this a try. Upon opening I could immediately see it was a milky looking water based product but since I knew the sign would not be used outside for any length of time used it anyway. Turned out to be good, more like poly than varnish but provided a nice waxy after carve and finish.


Also worked on the base for "La Tsunami"

Cy,

It's all classy and it's all idiosyncratic and good fun. Thanks for sharing it.

Cy,

I really like that sign design that lights up. You have me thinking of all kinds of new ideas.

Thanks FTLOTs, and I can't argue with a Professor. Skip my tiki bar awaits your cool lighting touches and I'm glad I could provide a bit of inspiration MaukaHale.
