Nomolos, Clarita, tikigodz and Jerome... many thanks for all your kind words! Much appreciated!

I was able to finish up the new watercraft I was creating for the Forbidden Island sale. I was able to get 2 of them done.
I call the piece, "The Conquerors."
It is a Maori Waka with three warriors in it. Each warrior brandishes a carved Patu.



10.5" H x 21" W

Lot's of idol necklaces to do now... back to work!

Aloha Dave,

Nui Niho wanted to let you know he's doing well. Spent today amongst the early fall flowers.

Looking forward to seeing your 10th anniversary work.

Mahalos!

Chris

Aloha Chris!

Sweet! He looks great amongst all the color!

Just a tip... make sure he is not on bare ground. It will help keep him dry and mold free. I like to put mine on 8-10" round patio stones.

I'm glad he has a great home with you!

Your new pieces are on their way... shipped this morning!

Thanks for the picture!!!

Aloha Dave!

I have to admit that Nui Niho was posed for that "glamour shot".

He spends most of his time on the backyard deck guarding the door, thanks for the tip though. I have diligently
kept him out of the rain since he came to live here.

Mahalo,

Chris

You guys rock!

Winding down a little here after a busy summer. I've got a bunch of new landscaping to do here in the yard now that things have slowed a bit.
Many projects in my head, but right now I'm getting done a bunch of stuff that was put off during the summer. That and starting to batten down the hatches for another long Winter. Back to the chisels again soon though!

Before I left for the Bay Area, I was commissioned by Rugby Matt to do a sign for his home bar. It makes it debut this weekend at the Sacramento Crawl.

A catchy name, melding his love of rugby and love of tiki!



Thanks Matt!

As the new year approaches, thoughts turn to my new collection for 2011. Some very special things in the works as I celebrate 10 years of tiki carving!

More to come!

Thanks Fred for the compliments! Matt got the sign today, and he's stoked about it!
That makes me stoked!

Tiki Landscaping going on this week! Dirt, rocks and plants.

Hopefully back to wood next week!

Still regrouping from the busy Spring and Summer, but the batteries are nearly charged.

Spending a lot of time working through ideas for next year's work and some special pieces for my 10 year anniversary of tiki carving.

Stumbled across the Motherload of Yellow Pine today!



I think the tree was recently dead, as the pieces were very light, unchecked and just lying about cut.

A good surface sand and they'll be ready to go!


Lot's of holiday pieces in the works, I'm hoping to be a part of the Tonga Hut Holiday Show if it falls on the weekend I am in California.
If not, the new work will be available here exclusively.

And big plans at Foundation Tiki Bar in the next 2 months! Bar expansion means I'll be doing some new pieces including 2 Marquesan poles.

More to come soon!

We loved Matt's sign at the Sacramento Home Bar Crawl!!! Great picture of you holding it. Your work is really wonderful and 10 years of carving is something to shout about.
