The tileman is made from Balsa wood, the pool player is made from pine.
I first seen the pool player at a local flea market. A man was there selling some of his carvings, some of his work was really neat and expensive. I watched him whittle on a piece of wood for a while and was amazed at how easy he made it look. He wanted 35 bucks for the pool player which I thought was too high. After I got home I wished I would have bought it. The next month the whittler was sick and not there but his wife was there selling his stuff. I asked her how much for the hippie, she said 25, so I bought it. He said the pool player/hippie took only 45 minutes to carve.
