I am so incredibly, ridiculously, insanely, monumentally jealous of all you lucky so-and-sos that got to go to the LC 'oki 'oki. Hopefully Danny, Bosko and Ben put some a dat mojo into the chisels I lent Grog. Y'all did beeeeutiful work!!!

And double damn! I also missed a ride in Hodad's Potting Shed!!!!

ARRRRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!

Thanks everyone for an amazing weekend. There is really nothing else I've ever been too that could compare to 25 people all getting along and choppin wood together.

Thanks to the host Matt, to the carving teachers Diablo, Bosko and son, and Benzart...and to everyone. Had a great time and want to know where to send my money to reserve my spot for next time!! It was great to see 25 different tikis all take shape at the same time. Now it's time to go order some new tools!!! woooohoooooooooo

Mahalo all for a great time! 2 days of carvin' with Benzart, diablo and bosko (with mason keeping up with our corny jokes and giving carving advice) at Matts beautiful tiered abode...with Moki/matt's great cooking...doesn't get much better than that. We're doing ait agian this weekend, right?

and matt...that anamatronic chimp-in-a-barrel REALLY freaked me out the first time I walked by it.

THanks everyone for posting pictures!

Unfortunately I didnt finish mine during the event like some other speed carvers. This is what it looks like so far.



I will finish it this weekend.
I had the BEST time creating with other artisans.

I would do it every month !!!!

Okay, I'm seriously bummed and it's totally my fault. I did a cursory review of new posts on the thread after it was sold out. Sour grapes and all, so I didn't notice that there were a few cancellations, etc.

I would have loved to participate in this event. Next time, I'm signing in a flash, put myself on a waiting list, or just show up and beg, beg, beg!

Although, I'm completely and utterly jealous, I'm glad everyone had a great time.
