The wave lip is a very nice touch. The Zebra print really works with that piece as well.

Great vintage vibe to your work, I especially like the Ku wall hanging and
your "wave" tiki. The chisel marks and finish give the impression that
they've been around for a long time, and kicked around a little. I mean
that in the best possible way, oh hell, you know what I mean. Right?

Spermy and Johnny, heaps o' thanks to you guys! I could get pretty crazy with the assortment of Velboa furs out there... I've had my eye on the giraffe for a while now...

Conga, thanks much! With this ash the carve comes out so smooth and waxy that I really don't need to sand at all.

Akuae, thanks also! Experimentation and sticking with what works is the way to go. I can't take all the credit though, the natural beauty of wood helps!

Lake I'm glad you got back on the Ku wall-hanging
it looks great! I will have to drop in market and see what
a cherry piece like that goes for?

seek... thanks much! I'm glad to finally find the motivation to finish it up. Like Benz and Tama, I've got a few pieces that just kick around in limbo until I blow the dust off them and finish them up.

Some glamor shots of the custom tiki I just finished... the customer took delivery today. It looks cold out in that fresh snowfall. Poor guy. The sun was out though, and it offered a good light to photograph in.

The A Frame as a lower lip symbolizes the perfect peak that every surfer is searching for. The tapa design symbolizes Hawaii and the gift of surfing that the islands gave to us all.

Thanks seek. A bit of a warmup this weekend with strong south winds for us. May hit 45 degrees. Hoping to hit the water for some swell Sunday. The lake is making ice right now though with an air temp of 5 degrees. Saw some float ice today in the lineup as I drove by. Hopefully it melts by Sunday with the rain.

Just put this up... carved moulding for the liquor shelves behind the bar at Foundation Tiki Bar here in Milwaukee







I've just received a downpayment on a ton of new carved mouldings for the bar in all different widths and sizes to frame out the inside of the front door and some windows in the front of the bar. Gonna be busy for a while... that's a good thing.

Nice Lake, It must feel good to see your stuff hanging in
someones place.

My 6/4 has a small hole in the butt, i thought i had
frost bite on my crack. It was like leather and white.
Scared me a little but all was good. Your water temps
are plain crazy!


The Great Polynesian past time. Last week @ the groins, surfer unknown.
