8Ft, I think I will just have a grab bag, or box. Just close your eyes and grab one out of the box. Now if you really want the one thet someone else has I don't care if you want to trade, barter, blackmail or use whatever it takes to get the one you want. They are all fairly basic so one is as good as the next, but I'm sure there are already favorites picked. Good Luck.

I wish all you attending the Coon Tiki best of luck, fun and learning. For those of you traveling, please take care and get there safe. Have fun, fun, fun. I am living vicariously through you guys. We look forward to the stories and take tons of pics. Aloha.

I'll add a note in the Tiki Bar Cam thread Thursday, but, for those keeping up with it here, we'll all be in the Hideaway on Thursday night and I'll turn the computer on to share. I don't like to since it makes a lot of noise in the lounge, but, hey, how often do you get Benzart, BK, Pablus, Crazy Al, 8 FT Tiki, TNTiki and Tiki Diablo in your home bar? For me, never!

I'm not typically the jealous type, but damn... that's going to be one heck-of-a-time. Don't let us down guys. We'll be wanting stories.

Dang!
As a complete novice and having never carved anything except a bar of soap in the 4th grade, I am SO intimidated right now you guys! Seems like you all know stuff all ready, and Mr. Greenhorn here all by himself in Vegas is shakin' in his boots! I'm gonna look like a total no-talent moron compared to all you guys, so go easy on me, will ya?

See ya Friday!

I'm a total novice to teaching anything, so the playing field (trust me!) is level, my braddah! Anything learned during the day will be re-learned chemically via the magic cocktail shaker in the evening.

I finished the Coon Tiki necklace for those attending this event. I will be doing a hawaiian pop mask or a Tanga mask. The Tang mask will be easier to carve up for all instead of the marq . For me, any chisels you guys bring will do. We'll make them work .

Kat,

I live locally and can help you carve some tikis. PM me and we can discuss. If you want, I can do the heavy chainsaw rough outs and you can do all the finish carving. Could be fun!

Head over and check out my thread in reverse order.

-Gman
