Thanks Mooney! I try and keep busy up here. Winter makes you climb the walls unless you have something to do.

And thanks to a break in the winter weather I was able to get a jump start on the new door poles for Foundation Tiki Bar here in Milwaukee. A couple of days in the 50's for outside work, then we fell back to the 30's, and I continued in the studio. Carving on Friday and Sunday and today I got 'em all stained up and rope detailed.



I deliver them on Wednesday, and if the weather cooperates we may install them also. I hope to get some better pictures of them in the sunlight, looking a bit gloomy today.

85" H x 10" W



Back to some more flatwork for the rest of the week...

The weather is finally starting to break. Those poles are great with the combination of deep carved faces and all the detail tat work.

Johnny, the rollercoaster of March continues. A short break but I see snow in the forecast for this Friday. Hope things are thawing by you. Thanks for the compliment on the poles, I enjoy making them. Poles always have an impressive look to them.

Benz, thanks so much! Detail is the name of the game, I want them to stop people in their tracks as they approach the entrance of the bar. They are cold, but will have to get used to it. They'll be spending the rest of their lives outdoors through the ups and downs of Midwestern weather.

..and one hell of a rollercoaster. This weather has been so weird. They aren't predicting a day in the 50's in the 10 day forcast.. and maybe more snow showers.

Benboo, mahalo!
I have some blue that my grandfather gave me... I'm using them up, then its back to yellow!

Benjamin, thanks! What amazes me is I got them done so quick.

Mooney, I never know. I keep jumping around from project to project. I didn't expect to get these done until April. I just had a break in the weather and a stopping point on some other projects. I took a little break from the canoes to rethink some stuff. I hope Spring is coming soon... many breaks in Michigan have ice until next month. Its been a long hard winter. Let me know when you're coming up if you are heading to the shores of Lake Michigan... you may get some waves.

Flat Black, depressing isn't it. They say we're in for a hot summer though.

Hopefully they will be wrong on that and it'll be 75 everyday.
