Thanks Seek! Maybe these will help.

After carving Mod-Tangs of various sizes for the past couple years, I was looking at some old pics of the 1970 Progress & Harmony for Mankind expo in Osaka when the vivid colors reminded me of an old childhood friend...

Originally dubbed for USA in 1966, not only did Ultraman save Tokyo each week by beating the crap out of giant rubber monsters, he subtly ingrained the basic Tangaroa facial features in the brains of thousands of American kiddies.





For a closer look come to the Light Gallery in Costa Mesa July 19th.

I have an Ultraman alarm clock that my brother got in Tokyo. The alarm shouts something in Japanese that I have no clue about. Apparently he is still very popular in Japan. I was a huge fan as a kid!

Hey! Remember when he fought Godzilla?


anyhooo... Been getting ready for the biggest Tiki Shindig in the West... Tiki Oasis 8 being held right here in San Diegy. Yep.

Been keeping busy with a group of what I'm now calling "Lost Sailors", these Micro-Tangs are carved from 100% AUTHENTIC SHIPWRECK TEAK!

It seems the light schooner Vaya was making a hasty retreat from particularly inclement winter seas when a rouge wave dragged her across the rocks at the Bay Channel entrance. Sinking fast, and with water pouring in below deck the captain set course dead-a-ground coming to rest in a six or more feet of chilly water in Mariners Cove. After stripping what electronic equipment could be saved he abandoned the remaining wooden hulk to the elements...

... and a mysterious midnight salvage crew.

Local legend tells that some nights the figure of a fat man with a pointy beard can still be heard yelling eerily from shore "don't bother swimming back without those pulley's Murf!"

My workspace is Freaky Boutiki's counter top! Visible below are a couple Lost Sailors, other assorted half finished Mini Tangs, an Italian briar blank, some tricked-out beads for PokoloLolita's boars tusk jewelry, a couple Maori style scribbled boxes, abalone, clam, scallop and a half dozen Bamp Mut marriage fetishes that I had absolutely nothing to do with.

Hey dig it! My first apprentice! Caitlin! (don't let her size fool ya. This skinny little minnie wields a monster jackhammer for the city by day!)

MY little brother Captain Dread Pirate Murf (aka OUR MAN IN THE PACIFIC) will be swinging down from a music gig up in France and Cisco to lend a hand at Oasis 8! Pictured with Artist Robert Tobinand some anonymous earthy beach bunnies on Oahu or maybe Maui(???)

Murf's wearing the only Mini Mod Ku I've ever carved, complete with MOP harmonica inlay and a detailed Monkey (Murf's dog who had to stay in SD) curled around the base.

My Maori box was making some progress... but since Benzart's Maori box is only like five million times cooler, I'm just gonna whip this ugly piece of crap off the porch into the lagoon.



Caitlin is a Godsend allowing me to take breaks from my medium Lost Sailor Tang to help customers or when my knuckles start to throb or to work on other nagging projects, like finally finishing up the never-ending Seaforth Marina Commemorative Tang visible on the handtruck.

Great stuff Hank - there's always something fresh and inspiring happening in here. Borkum Riff eh? I used to hook that stuff from my old man and smoke big roll-your-own trumpets of it. Do they still make the awesome bourbon-flavoured one?
I love the "lifestyle" type pics too - contrary to the few whiners who moan about shots of random stuff/sunsets/tools/waves/progress, I think most (if not all) of us carvers like to see the environment that people create in, and all the stages involved with that creation. This place would be pretty boring if all we did was post pics of our finished work.
PS you gonna do any other styles in that shipwreck teak? Cause I already have a mini-mod Tang....

UUUUUGH! Flannel shirt and painter pants? That guy's prolly got loose joints or Zep tickets.

Yeah that's me in high school carving an elaborate laminated Scorpion platter nightmare w/arching butress legs which fell and shattered into a million pieces on presentation morning.
My teacher gave me an F. I should have carved a tiki.
