Tiki-Toa,

Color is Minwax stain. Mostly Sedona Red with a little Red Mahogany to make the features stand out. I was going for a "2-tone" effect I've seen in some Hawaiian woods. I finished it off with high-gloss poly urathane.

As for my location: Springfield, OH

You need to come to the Tiki Pa'ina that is happening in August here in WI. you should also talk to Chisel Slinger who is from Columbus and will be showing with his buddy Hoffa at the show.

Flounder,

Thanks for posting my pic! I had no luck with the BBcode other than posting the link (scary, as i've gotten paid programming html). If you or any one else is willing, please post the other 2!

Mahalo!
