JTD....Yes I did get my ears really lowered recently. My daughter Suzanne whipped out her "carving tools" on my head a few weeks before the festival....She kept making different goofy styles as she got shorter and shorter while laughing at me until it was... See results below:











I'm kinda diggin' it....Waaay less hassle.

As we say here in Australia - "Bloody Beautiful!" - I carve tikis from concrete which take a good part of a day to do one. Your huge wooden Tikis made my jaw drop. They could easily have been submitted to 'The Book of Tiki' as a vintage 'find'. Well done mate. Love your workshed too. What type of wood are they carved from?
keep it up the fantastic work & the enthusiasm!

Thanks Tiki Motu. "Bloody Beautiful"! You gotta love that....classic. Some are Palm, but most of the new ones are White Pine...Built the bloody shed myself too! I call it my slave quarters. Concrete huh? Last' forever..........

Thanatos your welcome. From the looks of it, you probably could have carved it yourself!!!!! When you get the carving totally down, you should be able to carve a your tiki in an hour or so.......sanded and all. Keep up the good looking work there.

Thanks Benzart, Thanatos and Flacookz. We did have fun. I think we worry more about have much fun were having rather than the reason why we're there. I just enjoy the time being there and meeting some very interesting folk. Hukilau here we come.....

What great pics. I noticed that your girl and you are sporting some cool t-shirts . Did you screen those yourself?
Thanks for sharing.

Rodeo thanks. Actually, the T-Shirt artwork I did myself, saved it to a disk as a jpeg, then had a local company press them on from color transfers. They turned out pretty good. People were asking if we had any to sell believe it or not....We wear them at the festivals so people can pick us out of the crowd.

Couple semi-identical custom ordered 4' tikis with mouths hollowed out for Bose Environmental outdoor speakers to be installed. Happy Customer "Barry".

What a great idea. I take it the speakers are weather proof then. Functional tiki is my favorite

Yeah, (weatherproof) and not cheap either. Think he said he paid about $290.00 for the pair. He's sealing up the back with a cover over the hole to conceal them and putting some sort of black screen over the front. These babies thump! He put these on his new tiki'd out deck he's working on.
