This one was one of the more challenging pieces I've done this year.

It was at the bottom of the stack of pieces I've had since June, and I've finally reached the bottom.

A few more ideas to get out, then I'm done until after Oasis. Time to start packing things up!


Started last night on this buggah, and finished it up late morning today.

This piece had some pretty deep cuts for the depth of the wood, so working in layers was a must until I felt the depth was just right.

Kalalau Ku

10.5" W x 23" H x .75" D




Going to be hard letting go of this one... but he is Oasis bound and will hopefully find a new home.

Amy, thanks for stopping by, and thanks for the kind compliment!

Hope to see you in a few weeks in San Diego!


Conga, my Northern friend, good to see ya in these parts!

Thank you for the kind comments. This one was a lot of fun to watch evolve.
I'm looking forward to showing this year's work at Oasis. I think there is something like 80 pieces ready to make the trip West.

My booth will be jam packed with carved goodies!


Watango, thanks for stopping by!
Glad you like the latest offering!

I was in the Chicago area for the Chef Shangri-La party on Sunday, and afterwards took a drive downtown to check out how my signs looked.

Here's some pictures of them...



This is in front of the building that houses Vic's. For some reason, my sign is in place of the Barney West tiki, though on my last visit they said that the tiki was rotting from the inside. I shared some tips on repairing him, so hopefully that is why he is missing right now. I hope he returns.



Here's the 7 foot sign that I did for the entrance. The letters were painted in gold leaf.






Getting down with some commissions here, as my carving for Oasis is all wrapped up.

Next up is some custom work for Foundation Tiki Bar, but I'd like to share this guy with you...



This is a custom piece for Michael "Bargoyle" Sullivan.

The "Lonogoyle" will be watching over his "Lono Lounge."

Lonogoyle stands 36" tall and has a 30" wingspan.

This guy was a lot of fun to make, and offered some new challenges, namely the wings.
They are drilled and pegged and I'll be gluing them together today.

Foundation Tiki Bar is up next!

Wow Lake, the sings look really great. It must be pretty cool to ride down the street and see stuff that you made hanging up for all to see.

Gold leaf, huh?? (hmmm... jotting down really cool idea...)
