Great stuff Aloha. You make sooo many pieces and find a way to put individual personalities in each and every one. Every one of these makes me smile. I really like the happy teko in the trio. Have fun with the Conchs.

What a weekend! My camera died on me before Hukilau, so I'm hoping everyone else will help me remember everything that happened. Thursday and Saturday were my best days(I actually missed everything on Friday night and on Sunday).

Thursday at the kickoff party was a blast hangin with Bohemian. Thanks again for letting me crash! I tried to meet as many people as I could, but still missed a few. GreentikiPat and JD - you guys are really cool and had a blast with you guys (BTW - Pat is maybe one of the most talented artist here! He can do it ALL). While taking a break at Bahia Cabana Thursday, I looked over and recognized a straw hat that I had seen on TC. In a very awkward moment at the toilet, I asked if he was HaiKai (it was), I introduced myself and together we agreed to shake hands once we were done. Classic introduction! I also got to swim with the mermaids under a full moon - the glare almost killed me!! Enjoyed a few past midnight dips in the ocean - which felt fantastic - as it turned out, also under the SAME full moon! Met TOO MANY people to mention everyone, because I don't want to leave anyone out. The West Coast crew were representing, I really tried to meet as many of you as possible and can only remember a few so give me a shoutout. Also got to hang with LLT Saturday night after the Mai Kai - thanks for swaps!! How strange is that - leaving a Restaurant to sober up at a Bar? Gotta love the Mai Kai! There were alot of great moments and even more great people. I'm trying to work out making Tiki Oasis, we'll see.

Please don't let the Hukilau die!!

On the creative front - when I finally had a moment to relax on Sunday I dove into the large log that has been calling to me. All the tiki I had seen over the weekend really got me motivated and I carved into the night. Pictures soon.

*(sorry to doctor the quote Aloha)

Sounds and looks like you had a blast at Hukiklau - I wish I could have been (a fly on the wall?) at your meeting with Haikai!

Now what were you saying about diving into a large log..?

Alright - I things are just starting to slow down enough that I can get some carving time. Here's the one I started after Hukilau - its my biggest tiki yet. Most of the rough out was done with chisels. This weekend I hope to drag him outside and hit him with the grinder to refine some of the cuts. He is so tall and skinny that he will need some support to keep him standing - I have a few ideas for that.

You need to get some saw horses.

2 chairs and a cooler! Your poor back!



That's a great start on such a big tiki. I'm guessing 8 feet? More?

He'll look great standing up, and towering over people.

Love the variety in your work, from pens to poles!

Its a shame I live so far away from you and can't help you move that sucker around.

Not only is the size impressive, but the design is very cool too.

Looking good, AS!
