be very pleased.

8FT...Cuz, ya needta get cookin' some pendant resins! Your OA moniker needs to be doing the "8FT Lambada" around the necks of swinging ohana during all the pool parties and tiki events this summer!

Call up Finkdaddy...he's poppin' resins like candy!

8ft, I'm super happy to get that Kava kava, he's an awesome pendant. I really wanted to draw one of the sweet hand carved pendants and I apparently had some good luck.
The cocojoes Ku around my neck is finally gonna get sum time off.

Mahalos,
ST

Sweet Stuff 8Ft, nice to see more stuff from you. Still can't get over how beautiful that rufle butt is. Spectacular wood and the piece you carved in it Really showed the wood to it's Best advantage. Very WELL done, as are these 3 guys. Nice paint on the Moai And the 8ft tiki.Of course the Mr KavaKava turned out great too and he is a Difficult carve!

8ft,

The pendant arrived on my birthday. I've been wearing him most of the time. Great piece!
I'll take good care of him.

Thx,

It's been a while since I added any pictures so here are a couple of new pendants I finished. Approx. 3" each.

Well, today is the first day of Winter and in the Midwest we are getting freezing rain and snow. Several inches are on the way. So before the yard was totally covered in snow again, I ran outside to get a few pictures to share with you all.

In 2006 I had the very good fortune to be able to attend the first Coontiki carving seminar in Tennessee. One of the other attendees was Jungle Jim who lives in Florida. He and his buddy Tony brought a chunk of palm log to give away and I was really glad to take it off their hands! As you can imagine, here in Missouri we don't get too many chances to acquire palm wood to carve. Well, I hauled it home and then let it sit in my garage for a year and a half before I decided to actually start carving on it. Now believe me, in that 18 months or so I gave a lot of thought about what to carve because I don't know when or if I will ever have another chunk of palm. Well I finally decided firmly that I would love to have a Big Bob (wouldn't we all?). Therefore, behold my new buddy Tikibob as done by 8FT Tiki..........



The log with ends squared off.



Carving under way...


Painted and done. Here he is visiting another tiki oudoors. Bob will be living indoors!


Left Face.


Back Side. Here you can see the top which is concaved to resemble a mug.


The finished carving measures 23" tall.


Right Face.


With 3 coats of Minwax Polyshade it brings up a shine that mimics the glaze on a TikiBob Tiki mug.

Well, the streets are now covered here and the ice pellets are really dropping so it looks like a white Christmas in Kansas City this year!

SO from the 8FT's and our new buddy "Bob",
Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

That Bob is dead on perfect. I wish I had one of those sitting around my house. Keep up the great work!
