I have to mirror everyones sentiments, I enjoyed meeting everyone there, learned quite a bit, and intend to participate as much as possible.

Babs, you are a great host and I understand how tough it was for you to try to be all over the place when you and Dave were taking the frontline on the mold making, but you did a marvelous job! The Hot dogs and all the chow was great, the layout was well planned, and everyone seemed right at home.

Dave was a wealth of information on the mold process, thanks to you for all the time you put into it, I know you peaked my interest in the concept to the point I'll want to get my hands into the white stuff for certain (no, not that white stuff!).

Cammo, well, lets just say you are a kooky dude, I like your style! You are there for comic relief, right? Just kidding bro, If it wasn't for your sense of humor and good nature I might not have been compelled to make the trip!

Pdrake you're Jade work was very cool, at some time I'd like to bring some pieces of Malachite or Hematite I have and pick your brain on what to cut. I was wondering however, why I don't look like the kind of person that would get into Tiki's, I don't do bar-room fighting anymore, and I cleared up the arrest records and warrants? JK!

Clydesdale you are a very cordial dude, and at the next chop you won't hear any excuses from me, I'll chop!

4WDTiki, I really want to thank you for your candid and straightforward help, your approach to Tiki's and the folks that cut them will have far reaching influence on how I carve in the future for sure. And thanks for pushing me to produce some sweat on the log you gave me, I'll post pics and it will be my first Tiki. Look forward to the next one at your place Bro.

Buzzy, what can I say......The Diligent chopper! You might just be my new Hero! For those of you that don't know, Buzzy filled my truck with logs before I headed back home, and showed me his home turf, what a bitch'n view!! I have to say, the wood chips strewn out over the ground, inside the house, Tiki's encased in glass, lined up everywhere...sheer inspiration! I owe you brother, big time! You know it, I know it!

And for everyone else that I met and chatted with, learned from, and enjoyed your company and works, thank you too! I sincerely enjoyed myself and won't regret the trip!

(P.S. I'll post he pics by the end of the day, the "Honey-do" list beckons me right now!)

The trailer park was quite impressed with the turnout for the Chop. Babalu-you know how to throw a party. Thanks for all the hard work.

Lots of stuff going on all day. I Didn't manage to take many pictures, but I did capture the best part. The eating of the corn. We all gathered at the kitchen window of Babalu's home for some great ears!! The pictures tell the story.

Great Chop! Babalu, thank you for hosting, you have a great setup. Good luck with that trailer too, that's quite the undertaking!

I'm glad I was able to make this one. Although I didn't do much, I was ok with just checking out everything that was going on. It was good to see the familiar faces and to also meet some new ones.

All of my pictures are here, and are out of order.

Here are some of the mold making process...

Sizing up the mold.


Filled halfway with clay and ready for plaster.


Tikidav poured the plaster into both molds.


We were all a little confused why they insisted on drinking some of it...



Half way there.


Checking depth.


All dry and ready to extract.


They needed to be cleaned up and prepped for the next step.


This one needed to be 3 parts so Tikidav made a wall and went around the logo.


Here are Tikidav and Babalu working hard. The rest are in the almbum.


Oh, and our Mascot of the day.



See everyone at the next chop!!

This was definitely one the best Chops ever. (Although I wasn't terribly productive.)

The mold making was certainly the highlight of the day. Dave and Rick - This was absolutely wonderful.

Babalu - Thank you so much for hosting.

Cammo - The corn was excellent. Salt and lime. I'm tellin' ya.

Moki - Thanks for the fabulous corn pictures. I've got my new background for my computer.

Chet - Great job documenting the mug making.

Mieko - Great job documenting OnaTiki. Every hour on the hour.

It was good to see everyone and to meet so many new folks.

What, haven't you ever heard of "getting plastered" before?!

Babalu and I are going to celebrate the 4th of July in the most American way possible-we're gonna spend it finishing those molds! Maybe we'll finish off the leftover Twinkies and Wonderbread PB & J sammiches while we're at it.. America! Hell yeah!

Great Chop! Thanks for hosting, Rick. It was a good turnout. Nice to meet cha, T-Bird, Sam and Pops, Mr. Howell, Billy the Crud, Mrs. NoNaMe and doggies. Glad you could make it all the way from Vegas, Perry.

Sorry I couldn't spend more time visiting. The mold shop is pretty demanding. I hope the interested parties came away with some new knowedge.

See? It really did cost nuthin'!

I like corn.

Thanks for hosting such a fun chop chop Babalu! Your hot dog stand is the coolest! Oh, and those corn pictures are classic! I was happy to do a little wood burning, and thank you Perry for letting me test out the stone gear! That was so much fun! I can definitely see how you can get hooked. It was great to see everyone, and to meet so many new people! I'm looking forward to the next chop. See you then!

Sorry for being slow to post, but a few others posted already and got quite a few shots in of the molding process, so here are a few that will help complete the set.

First off...Sams Tats..


Buzzys efforts for the day which we thought might convince him to make it a revolving dual identity tiki, but he stuck to his guns to create this Kona inspired fella.

4wdtiki worked through the day with a lot of interuptions from us newbies, but made progress and friends along the way.

Pdrake was cutting up some Jade and hanging in the shade, cant wait to see the finished piece!

And towards the end of the day, here is Babs, Dave, Billy-bob, Zaya, and Buzzy topside, Babs couldn't keep his hands out of the batter!

and down below, the rest of the ships crew stayed close to the lounge area!


Hope my shedule allows me to make the next chop, cuz this one was a Kick!

what an amazing group of people and animals!

i have to rate that day up in the top 10 of the past few years. thanks, everyone.

i was really happy to share my stuff with people that enjoy it. that's what it's all about.

babalu's trailer is about a wide and a half, so we weren't too crowded. we did have to have a constant candle burning in the outhouse. too much musabi and twinkies. (cammo, as a friend i'm advisinge you to cut back.)

i was very happy to see everyone and had a great time. thanks.
