Wow!

I just stumbled across this thread! That's what I get for not visiting TC for a month!

You can bet that I'll be there. And I'll actually have my tools this time so I won't have to sacrifice nothin' to Pele!

Well, it's official. We're all sold out. Thanks to everybody for registering so we could pull this together. We're all really excited and are looking forward to this event.

TikiLee's, yes it is the "Home Depot" Matt and Bosko are talking about. Check with the guys in the tool corral. They should be able to help you. If not, check out Rockler.com or Flexcut.com

See you soon.
M~

It looks like we aare sold out Thanks everyone and I think this is really going to be great Fun.
I would like to know from each of you what you think your skill level is basically from Beginner (No carving experience) to Intermediate (some carving expierence to pretty good) and Advanced (excellent carving experience and ability). Some of you I know, but a lot of you I am not familiar with as far as your carving ability. So, either post here or PM me. I want to taylor each lesson to one of 3 skill levels:
Basic with no expierence
Intermediate with good skills
Advanced with ability to carve most anything
So Let Me know Please.
Thanks

GROG has MET Crazy Al, Tiki Diablo, Bosko,TikiTony, Kirby,Tiki-Ray, Polynesiac, and a few other tiki carvers. That's as close to carving as GROG has gotten.

Hey folks, what do we do about carving stands? Should we make our own? Any suggestions?

Also, I'm staying away from GROG unless he has some kind of license for that thing. Actually, GROG with a hook knife is even scarier.

Any wooden sawhorse with some 2x4 screwed to the sides will work. You just need a basic stand that stops something round from rolling.
It would be nice to get a count of how many people are bringing stands. We only have a couple.
