"MR.RVRLUVR" wanted the arms pulled off his tiki also! Cheetah tiki Yea or Neah???

Just finished this tiki fountain for Tim (Mr. Rvrluvr), here on the forums. The "2Forceful" dual helm or console, I mean, drop the arms down, seems to be a second hit credited to Steve's imagination!!! Never thought about dropping the tiki arms or (ears) down like that, but seems to look good both ways????

Yeah you know your bored when yor making a "Cheetah Tiki" LOL! what do you guys think?

1) Arms down?

2) Cheetah Tiki?

Thanks for the input :)hand

Balsa wood! LOL

What kind of wood are you using?
The Barrel is a standard white oak wine barrel, sometimes whiskey barrel, body is treated lumber, all wood is treated several times to prevent bugs and moisture damage, the skin is real bamboo stained and treaded with UV "Helmsman"

Screen on the top of the barrel prevents continual water splash on the bamboo....:)hand

agree, masks and spots

I don't think you should put spots on the cheetah masks.. jmo....
Both those tikis were about 4 years old, so... it was just a test to see how they looked, next one I build will have no spots on the face...:D

As far as your bamboo and masks, will give to Tim, is he near you in Havasu?? PM me or call my cell, forgot how many you wanted??:)sphss

Either way, they all look good. Nice looking family too!

I'd like to have a couple when I finish my patio. I'd hate to see what shipping would be across the country though! ;)

Arm up or down option, now dual barrel option! LOL

Steve confused me with the dual arm option, now I'm working on the dual barrel option, will have it done tomorrow.:D

Back barrel is a platter, front barrel (not shown) will be the barrel the tiki spits water in! Came out pretty sweet (Big and Burnt) :)hand
