Nice work, Double-D!

The big question, though: Why aren't you carving some one of a kind Tiki taps for your kegerator?!?!

Dave, You are really getting a lot done since the seminar. I like that you are using different types of wood. I like to see what you are doing with woods I don't have here. Kepp the pics coming!!

Hey Dave, I like the way that Ku came out! BTW, I think I know which neighbor you're talking about...

Conga ... thanks.. I love the yipwons too... plan to do two or three for that wall...

Swank... those Yipwons were cool! Where were they from?

8ft.. thanks... I started several projects before the seminar.. just started getting around to finishing some of them.

Aaron, thanks! and thanks for the wood... it was nice to work with. So different from palm!

That was from the guy I got my other New Guinea stuff from. If I had the money, I'd have way too much of that stuff....

The Ku looks good sitting on the bar. I've had issues with brittle or soft sap wood as well, I've gotten to the point, if I am carving pine, I cut it off most of the time. It's fun to watch the results of Coontiki.

Doubs, you are Really goin' to town. Like Swank, I Love how you mounted your Yipwon. The Ku came out great, that Redwood is Beautiful wood, but tricky to carve, Well done. Now the Keghandle also looks like he's gonna be a winner. What else you have up your sleeve, you're Killin' us here...

JP... thanks. Aaron warned me about the brittle sapwood, but it was too thin to cut it out... so I figured what the hell.

Ben... thanks my friend. I saw one mounted like that in a hotel in San Diego a few months back... gave me the idea. A few more things are up my sleeve... but they will take a little while. More to come..

I've been doing a crappy job of posting lately, although I have been carving. Workin on several pieces at once... here's some progress pics (Thought if I posted it would give me incentive to get some stuff done!)

A marq totem style from fanpalm:


a little Lono from Podocarpus (about 14" tall)


The first a rear pole of a future Tiki hut... its 6' tall


The second pole- to go in the front. Its 7' tall from Pine

I am a fan of your marq totem !
Will you stain it or let it natural ?

Benella.. thanks as well.. its gonna go in the backyard, so I may just burn a few spots for contrast and marine varnish it. I never know until it's done.
