Ha! Hey Conga, how's Mindi doing in college?

Hard to tell if San Diego's new Beach Alcohol Ban is successful or tragic... This view of the Pacific should be obstructed by tents and happy families as far as the eye can see. At least the short boarders have plenty of room!

Erik the Red & Dr No invited us to our favorite neighborhood resturant The China Inn August 28th for my Traditional Birthday Pu Pu.

No Big Deal, no singing waiters, no sparklers in ice cream and no presents. Perfect.

Well, it wasn't long before those mischievious Larson's produced a suspicious box.

Ironically wrapped in images of childhood and death. Brilliant... but still

"You tricked me!" "Too late now you old bastard!"

All's well that ends well. My first Techi!
Aloha and Mahalo Nui Loa guys!


____________

Oh, we were hanging out at the bar and I pulled a bunch of recent tikijunk out of my pocket along with some shells, coral a nickle from Singapore, etc. While playing with the the exotic flotsom, Amy my favorite neighborhood mixologist fell in love with a new Hawaiian-style shipwrecked teak!

Long story short...Look for this little fella around Amy's neck during your next visit to The China Inn, 877 Hornblend St (between Bayard St & Mission Blvd) San Diego, CA 92109 (858)483-6680!



I remembered hearing toothless tikis were benevolent. Also less risky work at this size!

Ebony w/Bone Skull commission (SOLD) and Rosewood w/Glass Pearl Mini-Mod Tangs. Full bodied and free standable, PakoloLolita has already woven the necklaces for these pendants.



Just a test. To jewel or not to jewel that is the question!

Merci! Think how snappy that rosewood would look flying around your neck as you Vespa around the Arch du Triumph!

Bill, I'll post a pic of the Techi in its new place of honor up on the bridge overlooking the lagoon. Better yet, come on over and see for yerself! It really ties the room together man.

_____________

As promised a zebrawood Westerhausen Derivitive Faceless Mini-Tang w/Blue Freshwater Pearl, verigated home-dyed organic Hemp cording.

Just seeing how much detail I can strip away and have it still read as a Tang.
What do you guys think?


*** SOLD ***

I think your pendants are great. The time spent on acquiring the cool exotic materials sets them apart. Thank you for the gift on monday. I'll wear it with complete pride.

Hank, thanks for asking about Mindi. He's home from college but keeps asking
me about going to California. I just don't know where to send him, he eats
a lot.
Nice carvings, really like the black one.

Thanks fellas. Everybody loves that ebony. I expect to do a series of Mini Mod Marqs in ebony soon. Maybe Ben will include some ebony scraps in his care package!

More Shipwrecked Teak.

This time a Hawaiian. I was able to leave some original varnish and paint in a couple spots and oiled the rest with my usual mixture. These are an interesting angular change from the softer Tangaroas. Expect an organic hemp braid
