When I started getting into the Polynesian Thing and collecting mugs and recipes and all, my Dad got interested in it as well. So we often chat about cool mugs, or something on eBay or how he and my Mom are going to do the upcoming Tiki room in their basement. Heck, we even go out and hit the flea markets when I get back home for visits.

So, being the creative guy that he is, he got inspired by the Tiki Bob mugs he got me (San Francisco) and my Mom (San Francisco and Sacramento) for Christmas. Consequently, he decided to try and give carving a chance, and figured Bob would be an easy one to start with. So he sent me these pics, and I wanted to put them out here for everybody to see, because I’m pretty proud of ‘em.


Doing the rough work.


a bit of detailing...


Bob coming along nicely.


He also took a shot at making a volcano mug last year, after seeing the Coco Joe’s one in Tiki Quest…



I also know he's been know to prowl around here (and post a time or two) and would probably really appreciate the feedback.

Thanks for looking!

I love it. Can't wait to see the finished Bob.

The mug is fabulous also. The color is great.

Tiki Bob is one of my favorite tikis. Your Pop has/is doing a great job! I like the volcano mug too. It must be great to have tiki as a common interest with your Dad. How lucky does a fella get?

Yes It looks like a perfect large replica. Your pop has the "Hands" of a carver
Did you get talent from him??
Nice post.

I was going to try carving a "Bob" a while back, but as I started laying it all out I realized that Bob's not as easy as he looks! Your Pop is doing an outsatnding job there!!

Did he use chisels at all or just sanders, rasps, sandpaper, etc?

I really, really like the volcano mug, especially the place to put the flame, or is it for dry ice? Either one would look great!

I see you have 2 kinds of limes, I'd say the little ones are "Key Limes," are the others Mexicans or Persians/Bearss?

I wouldn't put a flame near that wooden mug. What a cool mug. I really liked that mug when I saw it in Quest and your mug, looks just like it. I figured that the mug, had two openning for pouring. Whatever it is, its cool.

Tell your Dad "great job!" I fixed a tiki drink for my dad for the first time a few weeks ago (a Reverb Crash) and he liked it. I was thrilled! Funny how as adults we still seek approval from our parents.
