Between the enthusiasm of the newer guys and the experience and skills of the older guys this is just what I need. Really. Been working 7 day weeks for weeks now. Between that & the sore elbow, my carvin' has been starvin'. Ben, you've gone above & beyond with your prep work. I will be so proud to own a half Benz, half me carving. BK, really looking forward to your weaponry lessons - totally uncharted territory for this carver. Danny, it will be great to spend some some quality time carving with you. And especially BIG BIG THANKS to Swanky who has REALLY put it all on the table making this thing happen, MAHALO from all of us!!! I am so ready for this. One week to go!

For everyone else attending vicariously, I'm sure we will all be working the cameras overtime to post lots of photos of the event, the beautiful Tennessee countryside, and the great times I know we are all gonna have.

Cheers!

Tennessee is the place to be! I am so bummed that I will be stuck on the west coast when all the wood chips will be flyin. You guys are like rock stars and should go on tour out west to carve some palm trees in Venice!

The dvd/booklet of the weekend is something I am definitely interested in. Take lots of pix too.

Thanks,
Beachnik

Should be..it's a pretty comprehensive store with almost everything. I'm sure I won't walk out of there without spending a few buck either!

You can check the store on line HERE ' But I didn't see spokeshaves anywhere. They do have the Foredom knives and kits.

Excellent! Looks like a cool store! I can't wait to see it. I wonder if Swanky got them to stay open all night for us...I can see going over there after each day's carving, (purchasing new and upgrading old tools), after we see what Ben, BK and Danny are using!

Ohana reunion? That's what I see. We've had a few family reunions and gatherings at the cabin. There were 10 of us around the table last month. Now it will be my other family. I have not met most of you guys (to my knowledge. I have a horrible memory.). But everyone of the ohana I have met in the last few years has been great.

Smoky Mnt. Woodcarvers can get anything, but they don't carry everything you see on their website. Drop them an email and let them know if there is something you want. They have a good selection of power tools. Burrs, and stuff. They have more of the details, small chisels, palm tools than they do mallet stuff. They have more projects than anything, which may not interest you guys. They sell a lot of rough outs of small projects. But notice, they will sharpen your tools for you for free! I need that.

This is the week of craziness for us. I have extensive lists of things to do and groceries to buy, however, I have not found when I am going to be able to buy groceries! Oh, and I have to clean all the tiki goodies out of that little honey hole antique mall on the way to the cabin before BK swoops down...

Maybe we'll have to take our lunch break at the woodcarver's store! I wouldn't mind getting one of those Kevlar gloves!

Benzart- That is so awe inspiring! I'm depressed I won't be there. The more I read about it, I think I made a mistake in not signing up.

It'sOK Johnny, you just have to make sure and sign up for the next one. Yes I really think there will be a Next one before too long. It all depends on how this one turns out and by the look of things so far I think it will be Fantastic.

OK Ben, Now that we have seen the half tikis you have ready for us, I'm wondering how we are going to decide which one is whos. Are we going to have to arm wrestle, be the highest bidder or is it first come first choose??? Perhaps you will present them to us individually. I am visualizing a Harry Potter sorting hat ceremony with tikis! I just hope this prep hasn't worn you out for the weekend coming up!!!
Can't wait to meet you finally as well as the others. This has been a long winter but having the Coon-tiki seminar to look forward to has been great. I will be headed to TN in a matter of hours now. WOO HOOO or is that YEE HAW ??

COOK-TIKI OR BUST Y'ALL !!!!!!!!!!!
