For those who saw the High Fiber Hiarball photo and wondered how it turned out. Here is the El Gato
Tom & Hairy Tiki, before and after his trip to the Emergency Burn Unit. I took Aloha Stations
suggestion to just let the abnormality hang and add to the feel of this tiki.

Thanks for the comps on this tiki everyone.
Fortunately the bad spot was on the back and not on his nose. Since this tiki was going to
have some ruff places and since I have never torched one, I thought I would fire this one up.
I found out the hard way you should keep a water spray bottle close by. Especially on a log like
this one. By the time I ran to the house for the spray bottle and got back, he had almost become
a Tiki Briquette.

Mahalo,
Keylo

Looks great. If you can do this good with a crappy log then we're really looking forward to see what you can do when you get a nice piece of palm.

Thanks Mad Dog but I have carved some really ugly pieces out of some of my best stock.

PJC, thanks, hope you got some of those waves that came in on your side.

I tested a small area of spar varnish today on the char grilled tiki.
My fear proved true, brushing the burnt areas and the unburnt areas at
the same time, reduces the contrast that I would like to keep.

Anyone have any ideas on how to keep the contrast I have and also weather proof
it for being an outside pet?

Thanks Savage Daddy - thats quite a mad Rootball!

Thanks Lake Surfer, funny thing is, I had it drawn up one way and while carving
decided to go another direction, and sometimes that works out.
Your work is killer stuff, its liking going to the candy store for eyes. 52 degrees here this morning
no waves but it made me think of that shot of you out on the Big Lake, wearing the
rubber seal suit, loving the whole vibe. Hardcore to the core!

VampiressRn, thanks for your words and stoppin and checking the vitals on the burn patient.

A fun project I did several weeks back. I developed a logo for a friend and
fellow TC bro for his Blowfish Tiki Bar and then made a sign out of Red Oak
for him as well.





Thanks for Droppin in,
Mahalo,
Keylo
