Better watch it Lakesurfer, if you keep exploring the PNG stuff you might
wind up with a bone in your nose and a penis gourd. The ancient ones are
calling you

The PNG is addicting... but I think a penis gourd is taking things a bit too far.

Good stuff Conga, and thanks for the props!


COLD Saturday on tap... 50 degrees! Brrrrrr!

The calendar says June, but the weather says April.


Time to hunker down in the studio and make some more stuff!

Watango, thanks so much for the compliments!

My lovely wife had the hat made as a birthday gift.

I have plans to have some made for Oasis now that the pattern is on file, I'll let you know potential cost after I get a batch done up.

Polynesiac, thanks for swinging on by! I appreciate all the kind words!

I kind of saved PNG for something to explore at a later date, and now that I'm getting into it more it is pretty fascinating.

Watch for more to come!

Welcome to the PNG world, it is fun to watch the Lake Surfer style meld into and form these carvings.

P.S. After a while you get used to wearing the gourd.

Cool! I don't know much about this style I will have to learn more.
Anyways this design would look so cool on any surfboard.

Johnny, thanks for stopping by!

I don't mid the gourd, as long as the weather stays warm.

Seeks, the designs do lend themselves well to surfboard graphics... I think you're onto something again!

I've done some research in books on PNG and looked at a lot of pictures.

The most valuable info I've found at my local museum. They've got a great collection.

Still carving through this summer's vending merch, but over the last couple of days I have been working in some decor for the backyard.

It's starting to give the basement tiki bar a run for it's money, and as soon as the weather decides to warm and the tropicals take off, I'll have an island paradise.

For the last couple of years I've wanted to do a mileage post with South Pacific islands and the distance from my yard.

With the buoys I found, we created a nautical area, and the post had the perfect home.





10' tall with the largest sign about 34" wide.

And to cover areas of the fence and spice things up, I started carving some larger flat pieces to hang on posts.



2' H x 9" W

Gotta get back to something fun I'm working on....

I am hoping that "something" is another Tiki Temple fella!

Gope boards and yard art look great.

Mahalos, liz!

Ah yes, Tiki Temples.

That's the "something" after the "something."

Actually, they are hard to concentrate on lately with sunny "warmer" weather outside.

Much easier to hunker down in the dead of winter when there are no skateboards, beaches and backyard cookouts to distract one from their work.

But fear not, I have re-thought some things, and that has lead to a new idea that involves the original concept!

Details to come!
