Aloha everybody,

sorry for my absent presence on TC in the last month. But I collected a lots of pictures
for you to show why I had not enough time to stay here. Hope you like the following stuff.

The first pictures are from the Island Rügen, were I spend some time togeher with my buddy Andi from Munich.
Once again I carved some new tiki stuff for the Surfhostel Rügen in the north of Germany.
I created 7 barstools out of ash wood.


Here you can see the marquesan Tiki I carved last year with a great weathering. I like the natural dark color!

Doing an other small marquesan one.

The bar with some of the stools

Hanging around with Andy.

After work having a Mai Tai and a cuban!

And some older marquesan Tikis.

Trader Tark, thanks very much! The big one is out of cottonwood.

And here are the next pictures.
In July I visited a Hot Rod Race in the Alps of Switzerland.
I made a live carving show at the festival and finished this Leroy Schmalz Tiki in one day.
It was a hard job and I was totaly done after that job.
The Tiki is now standing at the "Tiki Bar" in small town calls Sargans in Switzerland.
Here are some progress pictures.

I used spruce wood for that job.



A funny tiki friend from Germany.

Thats my carver friend Alex from France. On TC he is calling AKUAE.

Haikai,
looking good, man!!!
I really dig your Marq's. Especially the texture in that big guy. i hope you don't mind if I use some of your work as inspiration. Marquesan is next up on my punchlist of traditional carves. Keep posting!

Tyler

Definitely Grapa-RuHa, take only a piece of wood and start a new Tiki and above all have fun

tikisbytyler, surely feel free and use the inspiration. It´s an hornor for me. I did the same and I think it´s the only way to learn. Let the chips fly and let me know how it works.

The next pictures are from August when I visited the Rod & Kustom show organized by the Road Devils at Weil am Reihn in south-west Germany. A realy great festival with lots of beautiful cars, lowbrow artists and nice people. I carved there this big tiki for the executive's office of the Carharrt Colothing Company.

Some progress pictures!





The finished Tiki together with lowbrow legend and JUXTAPOZ founder Robert Williams and his wive Suzanne.

Dangerous toys for adult men!

A friend brought me this awsome present, which he created himself.


Enough for today, now I have to search for some more pictures. I finished some carving jobs,
made a sand-tiki at the french atlantic coast and some smaller stuff.
Aloha, Kai

Kai, it's so nice to see you back with a lot of pictures. It is so refreshing to see all your work, which by the way, is flawless and a pleasure to look at. You can tell I am a fan.
