Just ask one of the carvers to make one. Edwin X made a pig and harpy eagle for me. I have not seen him around lately, but James who is in front of Estel's does excellent custom work, as does Ajah who is between Wild Mango's and Blue Water Grilll.

Thank you both.... I will be back mid April and look into both Reponses. Not familiar with Toucan stores but will check it out. Now have a lot of friends who have been on the Island for years.

Yes; "Joe" carved the one that my wife had to have. I don't know if he's still around but, I will check out Toucan and all carvers named.

Thanks so much. I'll post a picture in a couple of months.

Joe can be found behind the bike/tire/automotive shop just south of the bridge. Right hand side as you're looking at the bridge. He had polio as a child so he should be easy to spot. If you see him on the street he usually has a young boy with him or his poodle "whiskey" in the front basket. Just ask the guys at the shop and they will point you to him. I have probably 25 pieces from Joe.

I will warm you now. His work is great but his prices are high. He only carves out of a single piece though when he can. No glued on legs or tail.

Well; I'm on the island and found "my man".. I ended up going to Richard Zetina at "the little old craft shop. We hit it off well and his price was very fair.

I'm leaving Tuesday but he will deliver it while I'm gone.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Well; it's been awhile but I finally ended up with a five foot carved Iguana that I had wanted as a present for my wife. I actually ended up with two of them ( one smaller). If I knew how to attach a picture I would. [Linked Image]
Well; I tried to attach and don't know if I did it. If it's a picture of my dog, please forgive a novice.

Well; that's the small one. Anyway; not my dog. My dog is better looking.
