Polynesiac, thanks much!

It is a beast of a log. I love the stature of big tikis though, so it is worth all the work to see him guarding over our yard.

The groundhog? Hell, he packed up weeks ago and moved to Florida!

We got 7 inches of snow last Sunday... and again this Sunday we are looking at another snowstorm of 5 or more inches.
In-between that, it is just unseasonably cold here. Stuck in the 30's and 40's.

Thanks also, Seeks!
I have had enough of winter... though the active Jetstream has been bringing us lots of surf lately.





Phase 1 of a custom job for Sneakyjack... a new business venture of his... Idolmaker Films.

A Marquesan tiki that makes a killer logo!

Size: 20 inches

Stain and Paint to come...

Cool Lake looks like it was machine routed.

Yes there is something funny going on with all
this snow this winter and spring.

Thanks Seeks!

Freehanded with my trusty Bosch. It took about 2 hours apiece to carve out each sign.

Painting has taken the longest... Canary Yellow on Ebony stain...

Sneakyjack ordered 2 signs, one is complete and I've just started painting the other one.

A nice little change of pace as I love making signs and the detail work on these offered some nice concentration challenges.

20" diameter

Thanks Conga!

Sorry, no progress on Mega Marq.

Battening down the hatches for 6 inches of snow tonight.

Its been pretty damn cold outside lately, not friendly carving weather.


I think Mega is going on the back burner for a while, I've got to crank it up another notch and get ready for Bamboo Ben's Nooner on May 3'rd!

The wife and I will be flying out with all kinds of handcarved tiki goodies for the event, and we're looking forward to some sunshine and warmer weather!

California needs a little shot of some Lake Tiki.

Babalu... hope you can make it up! I would be good to see you again!

If we miss each other May 3rd, I'll be at Oasis in August!


drasticwagon, thanks so much for your kind compliments... the wood talks... it says "Carve me!"
The more wood you have laying around, the louder the voices are!

Real nice Lake, the shell necklace is a cool touch. Our internet filters at
work are down right now so you made my day with this one. Good to see you
exploring PNG influences, I hope we'll see a lot more!

Pagui is just awesome, Lake. Via just the 2-D pics you post, it's always amazing to see how much 3-D you can put into a flat carving involving the depth of mere centimeters. You've got the touch, big time~
Fantastic, man!

Stay warm, a Wisconsin Spring will arrive soon (fingers crossed)

Cheers!

Hey Lake Surfer- I love the sign and colors on it. It looks kind of like a big poker chip! Very cool...

I like the art of the Sepik river and your interprétation is very succesfull! your carves is some abstract, they much to say with an economy of means...is a trace of talent that I would have.
