Nice carving and good tip on the saltwater soaking. I have a tiki that I started and I abandoned it because it was cracking like Chris Rock in New Jack City. Can't wait to see more of your work

Hey, TR. Just wanted to extend a big aloha on behalf of myself and the whole TC crew. You will make us all jealous livin' the island life and learning about tiki carving from the Ohana. Excellent tiki. I obtained a piece of Hau wood in Maui last November - also some "Milo", though I've not carved it yet. My Hau piece looks a lot darker than yours (maybe just the pix?), but it is a beautiful dark brown wood and looks like a nice carve. Are you from Maui, or one of the other islands? Tell us more about your uncle and clan. Details, man!

Aloha TR, mahalo for joining TC and for the pics and the tips.
For a long time we had very few island guys here. Now more of you are joining, it's good. Keep posting.

Now we know what you do when you are not playing saxophone for the Rolling Stones!!!
By the way, love the new "Rolling Stones Project" jazz cd. Met you at Yoshee's in Oakland the night you played for the second set. Awesome show! You look slightly different, probably cause your relaxing and off tour now.
