Yes, a couple of those logs are rather big, The big drum log is kinda intimidating and I afraid to cut into it for fear of wrecking it.

G-- Yes it was a teddy bear. A friend at work wanted to give another friend, who happens to be a Greatful Dead fan, a stone(d) dancing bear pendant. I made it out of a purplish rock that is similar to the black stones Paipo uses.

TTT, as soon as I am done with the stone club, I will post it to the Stone carving Q&A thread.

Here are some new rough outs,
A replica of some Marqs that are in Trader Vics Munich and a small garamut drum that is the prototype for the big log in the back ground.

JP,

That Marq looks great..and BIG! Man, is he "packin'" or what?. The drum looks great too. What type of figures will go on the endz? I can't wait to see you saw into that monster log. Always top notch stuff from the P-camp. Always something new and different.

Good stuff coming out of the Michigan woods there Johnny!

Cool temps again, but good to see the sunshine in your yard. We'll be back to normal temps by the weekend.

Love the Marq!

Hi Johnny P,

Your work is always very impressive but this start of marq is more impressive.
I can't wait or new pix of the marq and drums.

Benjamin.

Hi,
G yep he's packing, can't seem to trim it off, just seems wrong.

Ben, why don't you come on up and escape that hot Florida temperatures, you can check em out in person, then guide me to how to corrected them.

Lake and Conga, hope the summer finally started up there, need to see both of you carving more.

TikiFreak1- It did feel good to get the saw out, now it's your turn to get busy again, you've kinda slowed down a bit. Get choppin'.

Mooney - Thanks, always a treat to see your carvings as well.

Benella and Surfintiki- The large logs are Cottonwood and I have a few more that size to bring home.

Bete, Seeksurf thanks for the comps.

Sungod, I literally spit my coffee out when I read your post. From now on this tiki is called PeePee Dancer


Not much of an update, but here goes.
