Great work so far - nice size log too - it is going into winter over here so the days are shorter which means I have less time in the day to carve - bummer cause I have a few I need to get out. This time of year I turn to the canvas and brushes when I am forced indoors. Lucky for me I live on a big block of land and only have one crappy neighbour - I make it a habit to clean up my logs with the chainsaw when she is home! It drowns out her yellin hehehe....

Man thats sweet. You need a sign saying " please dont feed the tiki" hanging around his neck. Hope the weather stays good for you so you can get outside and finish him soon.

Hey rodeo... thanks for asking. I haven't been around here much as things are hopping... just finished a huge order over the last 2 weeks and now I'm onto a 5 foot pole for a local tiki bar. I did have a chance to do some more work on the big guy... full face and some sanding... he's was out in the sun drying a little the other day.

I don't mind not being able to work on this one constantly... I like savoring it in little bits... something to look forward to after the carving that pays the bills.

Thanks again... you're doing some great work yourself... keep it up... good to see your work in a retail environment... congrats!





Beachnik, Marcus, Conga and pdrake... thanks for the compliments! I'm gonna keep on keepin on...

Big Mahalos guys... Damn BK, those is big shoes to fill...

I'm fighting back the urge to crank this one out... love watching it progress and I do a little carving then a little sanding... take a step back and it comes alive more and more.

Fun stuff.

Still looking at it. Have a little something sketched on but it always looks different when you cut into it. We'll see.

Since this one will travel with me to some shows I am building a base for it to stand steady wherever I go... that'll be the last thing done to it.

I started on a new order Friday night for the local tiki bar, Foundation. The bar manager and I were were having a Mai Tai last Tuesday night and he was trying to figure out where he could put another tiki. He decided they needed one on the corner of the dj booth and I decided that a Trader Vic's OA inspired pole would go great there. 7 hours of carving later, we have this nice 4 foot pole just about complete. Monday it gets a stain and poly. Wednesday it gets delivered and hopefully soon after I will have pictures of it installed.



Time now to put the chisel to wood and get my work finished up for the DvA Gallery Tiki Gala!

I always liked these poles, and you do them very good justice. Congrats on the sale!
