Thanks Grapa!

HUGE MAHALO's to whichever Secret Santa dropped off a few fat palms for our newbies to dig into.

Rita wants to start a moai so maybe this would be a good time for a visit from Bowana (so he can model)!

I really wanted to check out Babalu's bitchin studio last weekend. Damn. I'm beginning to think the only way I can attend art workshops is to host them myself on whatever day I can juggle my tiny staff and hope that at least a couple pals will join me...

I've also started a list at the Boutiki of customers and neighbors who'd love to participate whenever, and have about ten starter mask blanks drying for newbies.

Interested complete novices are encouraged to drop me a PMski.

I simply cannot believe my eyes when I look at the third beauty from the left

Didn't understand the things about the price size... but I'll for sure purchase one when I'll recover a bit of money after this f****** credit crash

Benella, mahalo for the nice words. Er... I think these are all Ficus.

I just try to carve whatever people donate to the program. Sometime's the wood is uncarvable like a batch of what my tree trimmer friend calls sponge oak. Two days after removing the bark the log split open revealing a honeycomb patterned grain like a luffa! Really cool looking but worthless to me.

About the price/size thing: Remember I own a shop? Well most small tikis sold around San Diego are inexpensive southeast asian imports by anonymous carvers. The low price is very seductive to genre newbies so I wanted to offer three sizes of signed tabletop American tikis at competitive pricing, each boasting finer detailing and finishing work than it's smaller brother.

Realy good little tikis Hank! I hadn't realized you had that much Imported competition but I guess it is getting pretty tough. it's the "Importers" who are making it hard for everyone. Anyway It looks like you are doing a Great deal to promote the local tiki carving groups and it is so nice to see that happening and to see you getting the results from so many peeps.

I was cleaning up my shop/garage yesterday and ran across a couple interesting boxes, one being full of chunks o different types and sizes of carving wood I had intended on sending you "Yearz" ago, MY BAD. I'll send it out today with me sincerest apologies. The other box contained a few blanks sent to me to be carved which I had also forgotten about, DAYYUM, i have really been Slipping here recently. I'll have to open that box and do something soon.

Hank, love the Tangs!

Great, simple flowing lines which make the tikis easily identifiable and a style all their own!

Can't wait to see the Marqs!

Tony and Rita are doing great jobs! I think they should have threads, if you can carve you can post (and you probably can design too why ripping off?) Keep up the great work!

Nice chops! They look so elegant, and simple...but we KNOW they're not! Nice work.

Thank you everyone. Especially Ben who's apprentice I remain.

Here's some finishing work on the largest ficus Tang. This size gets a necklace so still not done yet...
