Yo Ben way to go. Let me repeat, I wanna come out there and work for you.
I started carving while working in a little place called "The Wood Shed
in Wilton Manors, Florida. The placewas a lot like your shop only we made everything from wood. You name it and we would make it. Some neat one-of-a-kind items. The good ol'e days.

Here's a bad photo of a cool hut. The clients pool was the blue color on da wood. This sat next to da pool. Black bamboo for the doors and windows.Thatch roof, etc. The interior was retro mahogany with yello bamboo trim and astro turf green floors. The mini boo's had to model in it before it was delivered.

Looking up at a 3500 sq ft. cieiling (living room and kitchen combined, all looked like this). This shot was in the kitchen where they conected. The Hip or Valley? Or? If it's the ceiling instead of the roof?? I'm confused.

Here's the entry to the living room. Those doors were insane. Hand carved antique China doors.

This is for you Benz-

Hand carved and stressed Honduras Manogamy Cabs. Floor to ceiling, all four walls. The inners of the cab doors/drawers are Phillip Manogamy carved to look like Bamboo. The floor was oak and I made it look like the above. The ceiling was done in Potog and Black Boo and we installed one of those Fanamation fans. The client is a cool cat. He makes lots of shoes. Lots! ( this is his home office)



p.s. He even has a Book of Tiki. ( on a different wall. Need to scan more pics. Pre digital for me)

Hey Ben, I'm speechless as usual.
Do you have any pics of the oak floor carved to look like bamboo. That's not only a really great idea, but a pretty ballsy thing to do- takin' a chisel to someones oak floor!

It was actually oak that I turned into a very stressed out Mahogany looking floor to match the cabinets. No carved boo on the floors, yet. No chisels were harmed. Used grinders, etc. I'll try to scan some more pics soon.

Benz, why would you want to give up everything in sunny Florida to move to sunny Califorina ? Maybe we should just invade Waynes compound and have him hire us. The humidity would be nice. Good for the skin.

Shit Ben!
I should have been down there years ago to show you how to post pics on the internet.
I can't even imagine all the stuff of yours that we missed, years' past.

Right Unga.. How many pix are stuffed into shoeboxes just Waiting to be liberated? A Ton of work never seen by anyone but a shoe box.
Ben, we need to get you a Few scanners so you can work triple time. But then we need it in small doses since the hearts couldn't take too much beauty all at once!

Those ceiling treatments are top notch.

Nicely done.
