that's absolutely stunning. you should have it framed, under glass and hanging in a world famous tiki mecca.

Yes, and my soon-to-be world famous home tiki mecca bar will be waiting for it! I'll even provide the frame and glass. (I wish!)

Andy, I'm sooooo glad to own one of your other carvings. This new one is just spectacular.

Grog, I don't think so.
Sneaky, Thanks.
Gator, Thanks. Glad you like the Sali, Looks like it went to a good home.

Started a new piece, but it's been almost 100 here the last few days.

I just thought of something, Air conditioning in the shed???

Gotta go to Lowes, be back later.....

It was hotter than hell out here in RSM over the weekend, bump it up about 10 degrees or so for Temecula. No A/C in the shed for carving? Move the carving to the A/C...

Think "House of TMEC"!



(BTW, I had to search through about 150 pages of Buzzy's thread to come up with that pic)

I'd be glad to take your 110 degrees.

We had another near frost here in the morning with a low of 36. The high temperature was 48 degrees.

Its nearly June.

Please, send us your heat.

Aaron, I think Mrs. Tmec would have a problem with that.
Kahaka, Thanks.
Benz, Let's just say you wouldn't want to find out.

I had to scrap the last piece i started. I wasn't paying attention and took off to much waste wood. At least i wasn't to far into it. Got something else on the bench right now. I'll post pics soon.

So I was thinking, why make one, when you can make two.....



I was going to wait awhile before attempting another one of these, but I had to scrap the last piece i started and this was in the corner rough cut already. This one is spoken for..... or should I say someone has first dibs on it.
