Dave the bar looks incredible. Are you taking reservations yet? I can't wait to see what you transform those logs into.

8 FT... that's all part of the fun...

Debarked



That big one is a hog... gotta be about 300 +

Mc, get yourself a refill on that popcorn. These are a fresh kill and have to dry a bit, then sanding.

In the meantime I've got carved sheet music stands to do for the Bikini Beachcombers and more inventory for Eyeball Tiki.

Frost, thanks much! Your name is on the list if you're in town. Seat at the bar!
Next up, the backyard.

Back yard is on my project list as well, but first I need to get the grass to grow back there, and plant my meyer lemon and lime trees. After that clean out the work shop so I have somewhere to work. Eventually I'll get creative outside of work again. Damn job keeps getting in the way.

Some time in-between jobs to show some stuff from the last few months. Little breaks from getting inventory carved for shows.

I got to see my work in action at Exotica... my friends The Bikini Beachcombers hired me to do signs and tikis for their sheet music stands.





Yesterday I just finished up some more work on my tiki garden...

I carved up some posts and ran bamboo through them for a little railing. Hope to have more fun like this on a bigger scale in the backyard as soon as I get the fence up around it.







Evenings are relaxing with the sound of falling water... not too big, but just enough to give some atmosphere. At dusk the underwater light kicks in, and I've had great success with the pond plants. Maybe time to go bigger....?

Lake, I am SO happy that you are finally relaxing and doing some Sweet work. I mean, you have been carving great for a long time but the tension has been showing through. Now with more self confidence, your stuff is more relaxed and SWEET to the Eyes. Keep it going.

Aloha, Dave.

Seem's like you're in high gear lately and it all looks good. Love the home bar & backyard. Surrounding yourself with all of that tiki goodness must keep you inspired.

I spotted this plate at Moose McGillicuddy's in Lahaina Town and immediately thought of you.



Keep it flowin', my friend!

Johnny, thanks man. I only hope to have the type of backyard fun that you have had over the years. The big guys are coming to my yard... very soon. Working out the details on some 8 footers for the yard.... Mc Tiki.... refill that popcorn... you're gonna need it.

Thanks Ben. Me.... relax? Someday...

A.A. its been a crazy year so far. Fun, but crazy. Bar and restaurant installs, custom orders... over a hundred carved pieces and its only July.
A couple weeks to unwind and have some fun... then its back to work!

The license plate is sweet! Could have been one of my fellow wave sliders plates, I never really look at their cars... just suit up and hit the water!
Thanks for the good wishes!

Love your fenceposts; damn thats another project Im going to have to attempt one day. So you've got a big project in mind? Its about time one of you woodies pulled out something big!
I cant wait until the day I can start my own garden transformation thread & get to work on some bigger stuff - and keep it. It must be very satisfying.

Tama

Thanks Tama... the yard so far has been a bunch of work, a bunch of money and a bunch of fun. A bunch more money and work and fun to come before the snow flies!

So...

down to business!

Took a 4 hour crack at this 8 foot bugger today. My absolute favorite big wood to carve. Yellow pine. Love it.

Carved everything with a 12 oz soft head mallet, 1 inch and quarter inch bench chisels and a couple large sweep gouges.

Tomorrow is a rough sand on the face and then get to work on the body. Looks like surf on Thursday so he'll rest 'til Friday.

He's gonna look sweet in the backyard. I plan on doing some plantings around him and putting a light to shine up at him at night.

I dig the fence posts too...they remind me of a spooky tikified version of those shrieking steam whistles you see in old cartoons. Very unique!
The new guy is looking pretty powerful already, even just as he is. That seems like a pretty well-spent 4 hours to me. Keep it coming....
