Your cuts are so crisp and deep. Always a pleasure when you share your work!

Always love your carvings Al, but number 159 is really really really purdy.
Is it remotely possible that even YOU are getting better?

AL although I love your carvings between your bare feet and your flip flops I am concerned for your toe safety! Good thing you know how to work a chainsaw

Thanks!! Those are very kind words, but really, it's just taken ten years to find a person here and there that will pay for the crispy niceness... other wise I'm screwing off doing everything but carving... so not a lot gets made.... 159 was a sold chunk and i put a little extra elbow grease into it on top of what the client asked for, thanks for noticing!

Al! I swear I just saw one of your tikis in a scene from the DVD MILK. Harvey Milk's being interviewed with Josh brolin and Milk's ex-boyfriend is watching it on TV . They pan slowly across his apartment to reveal a sqwinty eyed tapa lipped tiki that is either yours or a copy of your style. Can you confirm???

Well, I always say Happy Birthday! a day late so it doesn't get lost with all the other accolades...
So, HAPPY TENTH BIRTHDAY!! to The Third APE Tiki and the First Palm Wood Tiki carved for APE on 9-18-99!!!!

http://tikimania.com/docs/bt_ape3.html
The FIRST palm wood tiki was carved ten years ago yesterday!! and to commemorate I whacked out MINI_APE!

another replica for the CrazyAL Gallery Line of mugs!! An APE Shot! first of many I hope....



LIMITED TO 50!! then I brake the mold!
to get this guy looking right, but functional! I gave him a bit more on the top end

then I started whacking at it!! with a 'blade' that was about the same size-proportion as the axe that almost 'competently' sculpted the original! ten years to the day.

my hope was to finish the face in the same amount of time the original set lasted at 'Planet Tiki'! Otto's first major official tiki-event!! about 30 some minutes!! then because they were running late.. frick'in Otto pulled the plug on APE in the middle of a song... or at least as we started a song... we wanted to finish our planed set! and I, my tiki. as it was I basically finished!

and was able to put about 9-12 detail 'chisel' marks before being booted....!

The back of the mini-sculpt took twice, if not four times, as long to sculpt a pretty decent representation of the actual palm tree bark texture...

The full story of these first two guys will be in the winter issue of tiki magazine... till then, I'm going APE taking a shot! at APE-3!!
