Congratulations, it's a cool feeling, you'll probably be wanting to frame that first PO.
The Tiki Temples are fantastic too.

Congratulations!! They don't give you much time, huh? Oh well, you seem to be able to crank your work out with great speed and skill.

Numatiki is taking me to TV Friday night for my birthday. Maybe we will have to go back on Saturday to check out the improvements.

that's really cool. congratulations. i must make a pilgrimage in order to see any trader vic's. had i known they were so cool when i was a youngster i would have hoarded all the stuff my uncle brought home from work. he worked at the houston location many, many, many years ago. unfortunately, he wasn't a collector. guess i now have a really good excuse to go visit those relatives in chi-town. congrates again.

Waiting on the stain to dry before I start the finishng details...

cheekytiki, thanks for the congrats!

Its a real honor to be a part of an establishment like Trader Vic's... decking out a local tiki bar is great, but Vic's is a whole 'nother level.


albino tiki... I love working under pressure.

They actually asked what I had in stock, but I am creating all brand new pieces for this job... with a little extra special tooling involved.

Happy early Birthday to you... hope you have an enjoyable evening at Trader Vic's!

I'm not sure when my work is going up, but it will be featured in the private room that is being finished up.

The wahine and I are meeting some friends for drinks and dinner on Saturday which works out great for hand delivery of the new masks.

Swing down if you're free, if not I'll see you guys at the Chef.


big daddy... thanks very much for the congrats!

If you're in Chicago, for sure spend an evening at Vic's!

It's 80 miles for me, and worth every mile... they did a wonderful job with the new location!

Lake! I've been meaning to comment on your recent stuff, I finally get time, log on, and THIS! That's awesome. Your hardwork is paying off!
I love your brilliant new idea on the Tiki establishments. Such a good idea. Something NEW to create, delve into, with so many possibilities. It gave ME an idea or two. I got one started now...keep ya posted.
Keep the stoke!

surfin Dave!

Thanks for stopping by... and thanks for the compliments! Glad I've inspired the wheels of your mind to start spinning!


Vic's purchased another extra piece from me last minute in addition to the custom ones I created for them.

It was a busy end to the week!

Last night we met some friends for dinner and I handed off the new additions to the manager.

He showed me where their new home will be... in the party room all decked out with tapa and bamboo.




They should go up very soon, and when I get back down to Vic's I can get some pictures of them on the walls.

Hey Lake,

These Tiki Temple wall hanging are a terrific idea. They look great. I can't wait to see the next one you come up with.
