albino tiki made some of my work look good on this bar that she refurbished with bamboo, tapa and matting.

Looks really nice!

Here's some pics if you didn't see them over on the "Other Crafts" forum.





Thanks albino tiki!

Tiki Kupcake... I've got to finish them first. They might turn out horrid.

big daddy, thanks much!

I love to see where my carvings end up after they leave my hands... and its a real honor for someone to make them a part of their home like this.

Yeah, right! I have not seen a single one of your pieces turn out bad. There have been so many that I've wanted.

..okay lake...since you didn't like my sign replica idea for your tiki bar carvings, you leave me no choice.....i'm going to have to start making replicas of the wrecking balls that originally demolished the original bars your replicas are based on....they will be in scale with your tiki temples.....i would appreciate it if you built these so that they can easily come apart as i would like to have my wrecking ball actually function......it can hang on the wall next to the temple and when the wrecking is done, your temple will be able to fit together again like a puzzle for more wrecking fun!!...




..seriously - those look really good!! keep up the good work!

Tiki Kupcake, I really appreciate your vote of confidence!

Naw, these are turning out pretty good for a first run.



Tipsy, I think you're on to something. Kids would love 'em!

Thanks for the compliments, Dave, but there's many times I think that I've gotten in over my head on these things.
I just want to get the first one done and out of the way so I can breathe a sigh of relief.

If I can get the damn raffia to stick to the awning sometime this weekend, I'll have a super update by Monday morning.

The whole thing should hopefully be done by then so I can distract myself with something else before I finish up the second Tiki Temple I started with the first.

Sometime in February, I have the basics of a huge building cut out, that one will take some time.


Seeks, thanks man! It's cool 'cause I can tell you're on the same wavelength as me on these. The goal was to keep them in the style that I'm accustomed to with the darker, earthy colors and have the whole piece tie together well. One of the biggest concerns of mine when I started, but so far it seems like I am succeeding at my goals.

Have a good weekend everyone, I'll have some pretty pictures for you on Monday morning!

Thought of you today while riding from HB to Balboa with

C'Al and my son Jack.

High 70's...total glassy....no waves though...

a killer day for a bike ride.

When you moving out here??

Benboo... sounds wonderful.

Nothing better than peddling the bike path along the beach on a sunny day.

Would love to move except I've got this house thing that isn't paid off yet.

I told myself (and the wahine) no more Wisconsin after I'm 50.

I want to enjoy my later years.

Benzart... go ahead, ease back in your seat... its Monday morning!

Whew.

I lost track of how many hours went into this one.



34" W x 11 1/2" H x 4 1/2" deep.

And it hangs on a wall.

Really, I tried it out.



Want to see more of them?


You'll have to wait until August.


The limited collection of 8 - 10 different Tiki Temples will be available exclusively at Tiki Oasis 2009.

leleliz... many thanks for the kind compliment!

I need to get back to some stock work for a few days and give my brain a rest.


Thanks Dave... I love how you always think of ways to make my work more difficult.
