That is a beautiful bar. Nice to see this style of work so lovingly re-created, and available.

Thanks for the compliments. Bill is my wifes grandfather. He is a great guy I could not ask for a better grandfather inlaw. I have been carving for about 8 months. I am still a rookie. I did not realize this many people carved on TC they look great.

Here's a Hukilau exclusive Trader Vic's style Marquesan pole I just finished....added a little pinch of Cali cartoon into the soup for fun. It is 5 1/2 feet high (Bill the Brittany Spaniel shown for size comparison...he had just licked the camera lens, hence the spots!). How you like?

Wow! That is one hell of a nice tiki!! I noticed in the pics you have rough hewn planks - where does one go about finding such a medium for potential tiki panels???

Hey, thanks for the comp! Go to any respectable lumber yard and ask them for "wide stump cuts"...in Maryland you should have tons of maple, cherry, and "pumkin pine"...all good carving woods! Most of the time they can be bought for the 5-10.00 range. Those you see are gonna be (hopefully) some New Guinea clan spirit panels also ala Trader Vic's.

Damn Brotha that was fast. You just posted the beginning of the work last week. I wanna be a soldier in da family. You've got to be an enforcer in the Fam. your work is something for the rest to attain. BTW I Been Drinkin, but Basement Kahuna does seriously put out some of the best work. Again no slight, I dig what he's doing as should everyone else. Keep it up Basement.

Very nice work BK.

How long did it take to carve and how much do you think it weighs now... ?

Thanks, Turbo. Looks like I am sort of the room-to-room selling contact for Hukilau now (you will need to contact me regarding that through the Hukilau site-has an e-mail icon called "vendors"). If we all get close room we can get our own little Eden's Island going in the decor/merch department. 7-It is pretty heavy, about medium dry. I seal those things from top to bottom to slow drying (that's an oil finish on that tiki pole). All wood will crack if it dries too fast...the trick is to get it to only do this at the core and not at the surface. Fact from Brad Fisher, a buddy of mine who builds timberframes: a log loses 85% of it's moisture through the cut ends. Buy a can of pruning seal while working and tar the crap out of both ends of your log. The tiki will thank you!

Here's an idea that someone can try. How about a tiki carved into wine bottle corks, uh-huh, yeah, why not? You could use a small v-shaped chisel. I tried it with my chainsaw but the cork disappeared. HA!

The chainsaw was just a joke guys.
On the wine bottle corks; if someone had the time and patience, they could whittle away at the cork to carve miniature tikis, no? JT

I just carved a crude Easter Island head from a cork with my Swiss Army knife. Call me crazy. If you use the knife like a saw, (back and forth) you get a smoother face. The cork wants to chunk off.. My knife is a little dull, maybe my brain is too, but I think it can be done. JT

The Easter Island head is difficult to carve correctly. The brow, nose and chin are very prominent, while the forehead is deeply recessed. My second attempt turned out better than the first. I'm going back into my jungle, JT
