Thanks Vampiressa, hope more carvers jumped in with their two cents worth. Will whenever I quit improving I will stop and move to something else that I can get better at. I completed "Cannibal's Cauldron." First I stained grey.
Next I dowelled, glued, and clamped everything together and added ebony stain and turquoise highlights.
I added amber colored string lights to the bottom but they don't look as good as the clear. I will try some turquoise just to see what happens.
Also did some last minute details to the newly name-changed "Nina"
I want to bring as much new stuff to the local Tiki Kon event here next month as I can, so dusted off five year old "Milt" to accompany me.

I didn't think I liked cannibal-themed carves, and then I saw the cauldron and that idea went right out the window. It's all beautiful work.

Thankee kindlee Jeff, Professor I know cannibalism is not a laughing matter but I try and take the hapless victim's point of view so maybe that is what you are liking, thanks! Poobah I really appreciate that you notice uniqueness and amate I love using color and bet if the ancients had the access to it that we all do they would have used it. Simon thank you for putting in the effort to craft such a cool post, you know you are one of my faves! Tiki Kon is next week and Wendy and Dan as well as tigertail are coming to Frog Island on Wednesday so if anybody visiting wants to join us, pm me for directions.
Here is some new work for Tiki Kon.
Still carving on this one, will be done for Tiki Oasis next month.

Awesome work, as always. Look forward to seeing everything in person (again) at Oasis (if there's anything left after Tiki Kon)!

Thanks for the incredible tour of your paradise in the woods, Cy. I see why you fell in love with the place. Your home is beautiful, and Frog Island is really awesome. I absolutely love that you have a real island in the woods at your home, and its actually fairly big!
And of course seeing your carvings in person is always a treat. Wendy is right; you do live in paradise!
You and your daughter were very gracious and charming hosts to your forest Shangri la. Mahalo!
