Thankee kindly pjc and hil I am very happy with the way Restless Natives is coming out but frustrated with the amount of time it is taking to complete. Tiki Ano the carving section is a bit dangerous so I am pleased that you are brave enough to explore the depths of the TC jungle. Hear me now and believe me later, this one is the first I have done without the use of a chain saw.

Not that I set out to accomplish that feat, it just did not come into play on this piece of mahogany. Also roughed out the spear heads with a jig saw.

Almost done with this piece of jelutong. I highly recommend this wood if you can get hold of it. Almost like bass wood but a bit harder and has a great yellow color, but sanding it has made me sneeze.

I want him to look simple and will just put a few clear coats on to finish.

You could be a mayan artist returned to make tikis. I'm sure I saw your work on a pyramid. You are unique, Wendy

Unfortunately no mahogany grows on Frog Island MadDog, I purchased it from a hardwood store in Portland along with the jelutong. I always see Mayan influences in tiki Wendy, and think that the squareness in Ward is what makes him look that way.
