As they say, "What happens at Dollywood, stays at Dollywood." It's the stuff that happens at Coon Tiki that goes home with you.

This is as good a place as any to say it. I had been trying to get Bob and Leroy from Oceanic Arts to lead a Coon Tiki class next year, but they have declined. Their lives are just too busy and all these decades of carving have them less interested in stressing their wrists than ever. I might offer a trip out anyway, just to talk story and maybe they can relax their arms with some fishing instead.

I have not been interested in a Coon Tiki this summer or even in Fall. It's been so busy for me I have hardly carved a lick. But, we'll get a class together again soon enough. As always, drop me a line with your ideas.

Lee, great work. And you left a t-shirt in the cabin. It's been cluttering up my kitchen table since Coon Tiki. Come on over and pick it up sometime...

Great stuff everyone. I feel like a complete idiot and am totally bummed. I was excited to see Coon Tiki coming in April and made plans to attend my first Tiki gathering, or something like that. I realized last night it took place in 2006 and not 2007! If it means anything, I'd love to see another one scheduled - I'm sure it takes a ton of work, but I'd love to help/attend. I'm just starting to carve and learn the old fashioned way of trial and error, so actually I wouldn't be much help. But, I hope something's coming up. Happy carving!

I haven't spoken with Swank for awhile, but last I heard we were planning to do another Coon Tiki this July maybe. Stay Tuned!
How many would be interested?

Assuming I can swing the cash, nothing could stop me from being there!

Great looking mask!!! Last weekend I started the same style mask and after just seeing yours here on T.C. I am super stoked to get back in the shop tonight to knock this thing out! Awesome work!

To all carvers out there (You too Tama and Paipo!),

Don't feel like a complete idiot anymore! Don't feel bummed anymore!

Take it from me! If this event happens - do not miss it. I went to 2006 CoonTiki and I want to register asap (and steal a spot!) - but I'll wait until others had a chance. If there's any openings later though, I'm gonna scarf one up. This kind of stuff just doesn't happen every day.

I would so be interested. Even if I gotta bring a tent and camp out to save a few bucks.

Oy. I had talked to Ben abou tdoing it again and now I am in the middle of renovating our new house and everything is on hold.

I do want to do it again and I know Ben is up for it and BK will show up regardless. We have rethought the whole thing and come up with a game plan to make it better for everyone.

When it will happen... We'll see.

End of July, early August, the Haole Kats will be down the road in Crossville, TN and I have talked to them about playing a gig in Knoxville on Friday and my luau on Saturday. With all this house stuff going on, there may not be a possibility of my doing a luau this year. That would make it very cool to have them on hand at Coon Tiki and see what we can put together that way.

Join the
mailing list and bug me about it. We will be moved into the house end of February we hope and get more settled in and ready to think about such things.

The big thing is that the new plan for the event means it will be a lot less time consuming on my part so that it can happen easier.
