Playing catch up here... been busy with work for the Tiki Magazine Planet Rooth Show and getting ready for the Forbidden Island Parking Lot Sale.

Hope to see lots of California Ohana and other artists from around the country this coming weekend!

I'll be at the Tiki Magazine show opening Saturday evening and on Sunday, Chongolio and I will be sharing a booth at Forbidden Island brimming with Aloha!

Some late responses to your kind comments guys...

Seeks, thanks! Good to hear you've been getting some surf! The pics of the Tiki Bog looked wonderful, get some shots of the waves too next time!
I've been getting in about once a week here, waves are more frequent with the fall coming. Looking forward to a storm this Thursday, then hoping to score some surf in SoCal next week!

Thanks Johnny... I hope to get back to some more work on Foundation this fall, and I have some projects in the works for my own bar in a few weeks. Watch for them!

Thanks Conga, I've been watching the "bird" posts you've put up. Always good stuff coming out of the Northwoods!
Hope you can make it down here sometime... we are doing a home bar crawl and bar crawl this fall, I'll let you know. It would be worth coming down for for a weekend!

Hodadhank, sweet! Thanks much! If you're ever in Milwaukee drop me a line! Foundation makes the best Mai Tais in the whole city!

Well, this Saturday evening will be a real honor as I get to see my work hanging in the Planet Rooth Gallery among some of the greatest tiki artists out there right now.
I'm really stoked, and can't wait to get to California.

For those of you who can't make it, here is a sneak peak at one of the pieces I have in the show...

Mahalo Al!


Did some straightening and cleaning up in the shop today, found this extra piece of wood and it was calling to be carved...

Whipped up this little Marq... 10"x 10"

Always cool, Lakesurfer. Congratulations on your participation in the
Tiki Magazine show. That sounds like a blast. Your canoes are
wonderful and I really like the unique twist on your latest post.

Thanks for all your support guys!

Benz, thanks for the best wishes! I hope the pieces I did for the show find a good home.

Conga, thanks much! I pushed hard on my work for the show and my brain is nearly fried. Nothing a little surf time in SoCal won't fix, though.
Sounds like it is starting to frost a bit up in your parts? A shame summers have to come to an end... seems like we only get 3 months.

Babalu, thank you, and likewise. You do some very tight work yourself. Your mug and bowl sculpts are outta sight, and its great that you've inspired and taken the time to get others involved in mug making. See you at Planet Rooth!

Ken, thank you! I can't wait to see them either! They've traveled a long ways.
I'll see you Saturday also!

Seeks, thanks much man! Good to see you have been enjoying some R&R involving surfing and carving!

My West Coast tour was a bunch of fun, the highlight being the Forbidden Island Parking Lot Sale. Great Ohana there and Martin puts on a great little event.
It was also great meeting everyone down in San Diego at the Tiki Magazine show... thanks again Nick for putting it together again this year.

Scored some decent surf last Monday at HB! Hung out with a pod of dolphins for a bit during the session.

Back in the swing of things here... mainly working on projects for myself for the next couple of months unless I get orders for work.
The Marquesan Pole back on page 1 is back on my carving bench and I hope to have it finished up next week. After that is a cocktail table for the home bar that will be made up of a couple of tikis and some detailed carving.



I just finished these guys up today. I made a pair for the Tiki Magazine show in San Diego and they sold opening night.

The Marquesan tikis are based on an adze that resides in the hallowed halls of the Mai Kai.

They were so much fun that I wanted to make another pair.

This pair is for sale in the Marketplace under my thread.

Each is about 2 feet tall by 8 1/2" wide.

Wonderful Lakesurfer, before I croak I am gonna own one (or two) or your
flat Marqs. If I wasn't going on vacation next week to Tennessee and
needing a few new tools...and with two kids in college...I would own them
now. Some of my most favorite stuff here comes from the Lakesurfer factory.

Conga and 4WDtiki, thank you for your kind compliment.

No worries, as long as I have two hands I'll still be carving these.

Its in my blood now and there's no stopping.

I've found carving as a way to unwind, relax and forget about all the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

It would be an honor to have my work hang in your homes someday.

Thanks again!
