Speaking of hook-knives and bleeding, GROG doesn't have a hook-knife, does GROG need to contact Benzart about getting one, or will Benz have some available for purchase at said event?

GROG can go to
www.warrencutlery.com and order "Part CWH-3LJ - CWH-3LJ Lock Jaw Handle" and "Part 10-B - Detail carving blades ( Sold in packages of 3.)"
About $20 bucks total.

Here's a checklist, does this sound right?

- Warren Cutlery Hook Knife with 10-B blades
- set of chisels, 1" flat at least
- mallet or hammer
- Carving stand of some kind
- Carpenters pencil or crayon
- Emery cloth, sandpaper, or sharpening stone (what grade paper is best, not too fine but not too rough either?)
- sharp hatchet
- hacksaw or other fine-tooth saw (suggestions?)

- other options; a draw knife, a fine detail carving set

and

- Sun hat
- Leather gloves (to cut down on the band-aid requests)
- bucks for a Tiki Diablo shirt

Also, double checking, is the exact name for this event, the one that will be on the shirts; "Left Coast Tiki 'Oki 'Oki" ?

Old joke. How do you carve an elephant? Easy, just get a big block of wood and hack off everything that isn't an elephant.

Definitely needed:

The name of the event is "Left Coast 'Oki 'Oki". It will be on the shirts on a pocket logo and on the back print with the tiki artwork. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone.

While Benzart has been carving his 6327th amazing tiki, I've been trying to carve my first bad one, to prep for the Oki Oki seminar.

Here it is (about 2 feet tall) after 3 hours work at the beach. This is all freehanded, and used only a 1" flat chisel to get a feel for the thing;



And here it is after another 4 hours, bringing out the features;



Finally, I wanted it to look really rough and sort of antique, so I stained it with a Red Mahogany and Spar Varnish, left some parts untouched, 1 hour of work or less;



Anyway, it was a LOT of fun. I am so looking forward to this event.

Better get a move on, GROG.

Great work, Cammo. That's exactly how I intend to spend this weekend. I've had some 3" palm logs drying in my garage for a few years. (So now I can lift them all by myself.) Can't wait to get started.
