Great idea with the bottle stoppers! I have quite a few small carves around, maybe I'll have a go...

I'm still trying to recover from this weekend. Hukilau was fantastic!! Everyone on these boards should be going to that event. Thank you to Tiki Kiliki and her staff for putting on one hell of a party!! Compliments also go out to the Mai Kai and their staff for going the extra miles with all of the crazy tiki peeps.

I delivered my big Pineapple Tiki to the new owners just before Hukilau, but never posted picks. These pics were taken the when I first stood him up. I never made an adjustment to the base, so I was prepared to do some fine tuning to get him to stand straight. We were amazed when we got him up and he stood firmly in the wind. Big tikis are really fun!

This guy would have fit right in at the old Pineapple Plantation off 27 near Lake Placid. Cool stuff!

That's either a really tall tiki or a very petite daughter,
but it's a cool carve no matter. Nice effort, distinctive
AlohaStation style.

Great execution Aloha Station, carving a 3D pineapple is rugged. I'm with the majority that big and massive is impressive!

Killer job! Great character, awesome color. I still have not perfected getting the bottom of these dudes flat. The angle grinder has really helped out though!

Good seeing ya Tom, can't wait to see all the photos you shot.
Last time I saw you Tom, I was pretty hurting from the night before, but I rally'd and doubled the fun the next night at Mai Kai!
