Four of these works, including the finished burl pedestal above are made of Italian Cypress.

I wasn't aware when I did this that Italian Cypress is one of the most durable woods around! The doors of St. Peters Basilica in Rome were constructed of it and were still intact after 1100 years when they were replaced with Bronze.

Basically the tiki's you're looking at will hold not last for years, but for centuries!

How Cool!

Hi Mike, I guess I don't come here often enough. I'm sure glad I stepped back a page and saw your tiki totem pole. That's enough to gain the respect of every carver in tiki land. That's an incredible piece of art. I keep going back to look again. The variety in tikis with each so well done just puts me in awe of your talents.

Next I'll check out your carving thread. I loved the story of the door. I'd love to see if they put the wooden one in the attic.

Seeing that pole made me day, Wendy
