<<<<homemade redneck toboggan down the steep grassy slope behind the Lodge. I think we invented a new sport.>>>

Actually, this is an ancient Hawai'ian pastime that even has a legend involving Pele around it.

I love to talk story like you sickos like to carve and I was talking with Finkdaddy last night over some frosty tropical cocktails about telling some old Hawai'ian stories and putting them on mp3s here on TC. There are many involving wood and very descriptive passages of certain trees like the one Maui used to capture the sun.

You see, Maui once noticed his dearly loved mother weeping in frustration and he...

... yeah, this is gonna work.

Next Coontiki - I'll come up and be the official storyteller/bard.
Since I stopped smoking and getting trashed I don't snore very much anymore but I once chased Swanky out of a Hilton. He left so fast he left his boots in the room. No kidding.

You know what works is ear plugs. I figured you guys would have a grip on that because they're always located in the chain saw section.

Seriously!

I'd pay money for something like this even. You could talk story and have your uke playing in the background.
I'd love to carve to it... I think it would really set the mood. A lot of times while carving I've got Hapa, IZ, and the Haole Cats in rotation.
Some of my favorite songs by IZ are the stories set to music.

I love the Hawai'ian stories... the 2 weeks I spent there were surfing and exploring, but the memories are of the stories from guides and others about why things are so.

At the least pablus, think about doing a few mp3's to put on here if you have time...

And send me a picture of my tiki in the Lagoon Lounge!!

I have watched this thread throughout it's development. It's astonishing that this happened in the time that it has. It's kind of our generations gathering of great artists that will make up a part of Tiki history and fond memories that are sure to withstand the test of ages. This warms me.

Very nicely done indeed.

And to Lake's point, It would/should serve as primer to engage some get-togethers for carving and story amongst family.

My photos are now up online at my business website! These are just low-res proofs made for quick downloading; there are 154 shots there!

I'm sorry about the watermarks, I hate them too. But ever since an architect (who should have known better) printed a set of my low-res proofs and then credited ME with the crappy print quality, I watermark ALL proofs. It'll help protect those works pictured herein from the joys of website theft as well.

Sometime this weekend I'll post an URL for a high-res group picture that anyone can download and print at home. Till then, here they are:

Hey Swanky...

I'm too lazy right now to look back at the old posts... but is this the tiki that you've been working on for a while?

http://f-stop.com/clients/Coon-Tiki/072.htm

The one that resembles the City of Refuge tiki?

If it is, did you get the tips from Danny on how to make it happen?

http://f-stop.com/clients/Coon-Tiki/080.htm

Looking forward to your future work... I think you have more carving talent than you realize

Yes it is! And that Ku is the reason we all got together. I was working away and thought how nice it would be if BK or some other experienced carver lived down the street. I needed advice badly. So I imagined there were others in the same sort of boat.

I went over every problem spot in that tiki with Tiki Diablo and he really made it clear. The mouth still awaits, abut I am much more ready to get it all done than I was before. I really can express how much I learned. I liken it to getting a guitar and tryng to play and it all sounds bad and you put it away after a week. A few lessons and you might instead play the rest of your life. Hell, I was holding the chisel upside down!

I am ready for a summer of carving. And Ms Swanky did a much better job than I did. I'll get her on the mallet too.
