The tiki is great! Beautiful! Thanks. Its better looking than I thought it was going to be. I must mention that it is not perfectly straight in height. But I realize that the 6" x 6" oak that you used might have been a warped beam that the carver purchased for a discount; thinking that he could make up for the warp with carving path choices. Anyway that's OK because if I rotate its base at a certain angle I can create an illusion that it is straight -- -- and then it looks great. I'm a bit picky I guess. My visitors would never notice the slight defect, I'm sure. Thanks again for the beautiful tiki! The color/ staining of the wood is perfect!
