Oh yea.... McTiki... here is that detail shot of the hula girl. Sad thing, she was wrapped in 5 inches of foam wrap on a short UPS trip to Chicago... somehow a hand broke off... I think a refrigerator must have fallen on her



Her new owner said all was well though with a little glue, and she's back to her old self.

I really like the finish on the drink menu board tikis. Can you give up some secrets? --What kinda' wood, what kinda' stain/technique, etc.? The bar is looking great also!

Wow Dave, I haven't checked you thread in a while. Seems I've missed a ton! I'm glad to see your new work at the Foundation, and that hula girl is amazing!

Lake, your Huls girl sure has Sweet and Graceful lines, too bad her hand broke off, but good it's fixed. The Drink Menu really looks greaat too. Also your bartop is coming along fine. I started out carving while working for an old man who also made resin top tables packed with all kinds of stuff. It is a tricky process that takes a bit to learn and it seems you are doing a good job of it.

Very cool, Dave - can't wait to see those Rendez'vous tikis!! Mike had mentioned a little while ago that he still wanted to do them - glad they are becoming a reality! TOO COOL!

surf-n-turf: thanks! sorry, can't give up the secrets on the finishing The wood is young pine, Arbor Vite to be exact.

finkdaddy: thanks! You seem to be making a name for yourself these days! Foundation is looking hep these days, and I'm happy to be a part of it.

Ben: Much thanks from you also! The hula girl was something new, after being comissioned I wasn't sure what I was going to do, but it worked out alright.
I have to do one more pour on the bartop to cover some more shells... it is challenging but fun stuff when it works out right!

croe67: The Rendezvous poles are going to be great! I'm really looking forward to doing them, they will really make the entrance.

surfintiki: Thanks much! They were a lot of fun to do and I'm pretty stoked now that they are up and people can see them.

Bete: Aloha! And Happy Holidays to you also! Thanks for the compliment! I'm sure she won't be the last now that I've figured it out. The client mentioned she might want a Kane sometime in the future!

One big mask carved for Foundation... doing the other two today. Pictures to come as they are finished, they are looking pretty sweet!

Delivery day Friday afternoon for the Foundation masks. Don ordered them last Friday and a week later they are ready to go up!

The third one was finished up and received it's final touches after dark, so I'll get a shot of all three before delivery.

The big guy is 3 feet tall. Plan is to have them bottom lit with a votive candle that will sit on a shelf below the mask.

I hope to have pictures of them installed in the bar up here shortly.

These are nice! I have been contemplating doing a relief piece but every time I start I get disgusted and toss them. Thanks for making me feel even worse.

Thanks A.S. Didn't mean to make ya feel bad. Let them serve as motivation for what you could be doing... I know you have it in you!

First time doing masks with edge glued wood, which is a pain in the ass but I didn't want to take all the time to glue boards together. Just find out which way to go with the grain and don't go too deep with the cuts.

Hey there Bete, thanks and same to you! I'll be ringing in the 007 with a Mai Tai at the Tiki Terrace while raffling off a bunch of my stuff.

That hula girl is really a break out for you. Different ideas, different style, good changes. It looks very much alive and the style is great, like it better than a Shag hula and looks like a Witco but better.
I think it is the best work that I have seen from you. You should try a tiki running man like that.
