Been a few weeks...

Had a great time at the Hot Rod Hula Hop!

Thanks to everyone who took home a Lake Tiki creation or stopped in to check out my work and say hi!

Spent some downtime doing some research and recharging the batteries a bit.

Had a small show at the beach again last week, made a few sales this time.

The Tiki Magazine art show is up next...

Here's a little peak at part of "The Fatu Hiva Collection"



Making final travel plans to be at the Forbidden Island Parking Lot Sale the day after the Tiki Mag Show.

Looking forward to seeing the NorCal Ohana!

SWEEEET! Lovin' all the detail. You gonna have some mini-marq paddlers in that vessel? It'll look fabulous with or without them.

Now we're talkin'. Lakesurfer comes up with something to get excited
about. Looks like this is going to be a beautiful addition to an aready
enviable collection of work. I really love what your are doing with
your flat work, the designs are wonderful. Wish I had your patience.
Go Lake!

Thanks Brad, over the top with this one. I'm really honored to have a place in this year's show, and I will not disappoint.
This boat will have all the bells and whistles, lots of extra special touches to make it a real one of a kind collectible.



Conga, you're too kind. Thanks for the compliments! Patience, I find it calming. The more detail the better, I like to call it "in the zone."

JT, thanks! I'm really looking forward to it! There will be art to fondle.

Lake,

Those are some sweet pieces that you have been creating.
You should look me up if you want to do some surfing in Santa Cruz on your visit.
I'll take you out at my local spots and make sure you get a warm welcome.

Good luck at the show.

Will

Will, good to hear from you! Thanks for the compliment!

I checked out your new work, but didn't get a chance to comment on it yet.

As usual, some really great SC Tiki Shack creations going on!

I wish I had time to swing by your stretch of coast. As it is, I will have such a short time in The California Republic.

Too short, but I'll enjoy every minute of it.

Hopefully, the wahine and I will get back to your area. I loved surfing Pacifica and Marina. Cowell's was flat though, wrong swell direction. They cancelled the Coldwater too.

I'd like to do a drive from S.F. to LA... we would for sure look you up.

Wrapping up work on the Tiki Mag show pieces! One more to finish, then I have some new things brewing...

Benz, thanks man... means a ton coming from a talent such as yourself!

I'm proud of where I've arrived at, but will never settle... always striving for more.

I've never been so stoked about my work as I am now, its a lot of fun!

Keep watching, I promise there's more to come!

Still busy, I've got the Dairyland Surf Classic coming up next weekend!

20 year Anniversary of the best Great Lakes Surf party running! 3 days of Great Lakes surf culture, paddling contests, music, lots of beer and waves if the gods allow it!

Actually got in the water today for 3 hours of some chest to waist peaks... 73 degree water! Trunking it on the lake!

Stoke is running high these days!

I'm still keeping the Tiki Mag Show work under wraps until after the show,
but I was over on Foundation Tiki Bar's Myspace this evening and found a bunch of new pictures of my work up there.



Front door with my 7 foot Marquesan Posts, Don trimmed the entire door out with bamboo.



Just a sample of the carved trim I did back in December/January, this around the back of the bar shelves



Carved Humu Triggers in the back booth... the Surgeonfish are on the left inside wall hidden from view.



Door trim, an older sign and a weapon from last November on the inside of the door, now trimmed out with bamboo.



A large Marquesan wallhanging and a weapon from late last fall



The 4 foot canoe I finished up after Hukilau earlier this summer. Its hanging in a new booth Don built with a wood surfboard table and a reed overhang.



Paradise! I'm getting thirsty!

If you're in the Milwaukee area, drop me a line and we'll have a drink or two at Foundation Tiki Bar!

Nice Lake you are keeping up the carving stoke for sure!

I also have been surfing my but off! Great waves have been
coming thru. Heading back today for another week of beach life.

It is so nice to see your carvings displayed in a real tiki bar. That is real big feather in your cap.

Great pics Lake, another place I gotta get to when I make the
trip to Milwaukee. Looks like a cool spot, but it would have to be,
since it's sorta like a "public" LakeSurfer Bar.
