Hi,
I've been busy recently and did not get a chance to post. Here are a few things I’ve been working on. Kaha ki’i recommended the book “Arts and Crafts of Hawai’i” by Peter Buck. It is a wonderful resource full of great diagrams and how to’s.

Group Shot.


Knife.


Knuckle Duster.


Club. This one would have had a marlin spike for the sharp part, however there are not too many of those washed up on the beach on Lake Michigan, so I interpreted one out of wood.


Here are all the shark teeth or Hawaiian clubs together.


This one is a thank you gift for something that really was a bright spot recently. Thank You. It is just a little token of appreciation.




ATTENTION: Michigan Tiki Centralities.
Get together at JohnnyP’s Saturday June 3. PM me if you are interested for details, etc.
I asked a few of you about May but it seemed kinda booked. This could be the last chance at this location. My company filed bankruptcy and I may have to move soon.

Again thanks for looking.
JP

JP,

Sweet clubs.
I feel sorry for anyone who breaks into your house.
They will have all hell break loose on them.

JohnnyP,

Dang boy! You've made a whole slew of those things. They really look great. The photos really show them off. Neat stuff. When we get together, I wanna see that book Kaha turned you onto.

I can't believe you got so many great clubs out of those teeth. Awesome!

If you can make it down this weekend, I have several friends from SC heading down to dive the Peace River for shark teeth. We're gonna rack on Sunday! Wanna come with us?

-Gman

Johnny,
Man, you are really doing some nice precise work. Been very busy i see. Stellar job. What exactly are you doing with all the pieces? They would make a "killer" display all together. Sorry lame joke. You have really got the sewing of the twine through the teeth down. Very clean.

Hope everything works out for you with regards to the job. Who knows, maybe you'll be Florida bound...(cross fingers, cross fingers).

Thanks guys,
Ben - thanks. This will be the last of the oak ones for a while, I'm done with the board I bought.

Rodeotiki - These clubs are made with bluegill teeth and are a lot smaller than they appear. Seriously, I have a good friend in Florida that provided them.

Lake Surfer - I would be ecstatic if you could make it on June 3. Need a place to crash? Bring your toolz!

As far as the job goes, thanks for your thoughts and kind words. We are looking at this as a positive thing. Only good things will come out of it and we are looking forward to the new adventure life will bring.

Again

ATTENTION: Michigan or Great Lakes area Tiki Centralities.

Get together at JohnnyP’s Saturday June 3.

Carving, drinking, talking tiki, etc.

PM me if you are interested for details, etc.

JP

Lookin Real Nice Johnny! I really dig that Knuckle Duster. You should check out the book "Fijian Weapons and Warfare" by Fergus Clunie If you haven't already? Great book on War Clubs!

Keep em coming!

I see a lot of these here in Hawaii and yours rival some of the best I've seen.

Great work, I always like to see primitive weapons.

Thanks
Tikimecula- I checked out that book you recommended- Looks like another add to the list of going to gets.

Alientiki-Thank you for the complement. I've only seen these weapons in person once at the field museum in Chicago, and they were behind glass. I've been going on pictures in books.

A while ago Loki said I should go smaller. Here is my first attempt. Small is whole another world. It's a lot of fun.
