I have toyed with the idea of building travel bar sized portable miniature tiki bars that maybe "pop up" into a diorama when you open them (with a place to put four full-sized bottles and fou mugs, of course).

howzit BK,

I like painting some of the tiki's and NG stuff because it gives age to da look if you use a certain technique(sp?)

Mr. Schmaltz at OA told me he liked da way I aged one of my mask so I kept doing it.

I'll probably bring dat piece to Florida fo sale.

I jus wen get dat wood on saturday. I been waiting for a while on certain woods. I haven't had any wood because of da strike a few months ago on da cargo ships.

I missed out on a lot of wall panel buisness dat customers and friends wanted done! SORRY!!

I might jus have to move back to da mainland if dat happens again.

I just got a small supply of just beautiful OLD GROWTH (200+years old!) black walnut slices (1x and 2x slices are all I can get so far). If you want I'll bring you a couple of pieces down to Hukilau. Making some weapons out of it, and that walnut is so dark and richly grained they look like pre-contact museum pieces! It's coming off of a previously untouched mountain ridge in Franklin, North Carolina. Unfortunately, a bunch of the timberframers are buying up the big stuff and using it for (get this) structural tenons, of which walnut ones hold joists like iron. What a waste. Some of the trunks are 4 feet wide.

eh BK,

I can use sum depending on how hard da wood is. I tink I might bring some 2 ft coconut stumps with me to florida to trade with or sell for da carvers who would like to carve a trunk frum da islands. I have a friend moving ova by da pan handle on Florida and is going to ship sum of my stuff with his furniture. So I'll throw sum blank coconut trunks in.

I'll take a couple. I could even use 3 or 4 foot if you got'em. Black walnut is a very hard wood but very carveable and once it's carved barring all extremes that object will be around for centuries. I'll trade you or I'll just buy a couple!

Hula, verrry nice, yah! The richness of the wood really sets it off.

I've got another brilliant Jungle Trader idea; "tiki business card holders". I'm doing a local home and garden show and I need one yesterday. If I can't find one I'll try making it myself. Obviously it should not be much bigger then a business card or about the size of the average hand. Oh, how about a business card holder shaped like a hand. "The light bulb above my head is on". <<<---Famous quote by JT.
