Instead of hodad, we should be calling you sensei.
Anything new yet?

Thanks all...

I have said that we will occasionally find wood has been left for us by anonymous supporters.



Whether they be curious passers-by who've seen us carving daily along Mission Boulevard in Mission Beach, log-flush tiki centralites, tree trimmers helping turn trash to art or neighbors cleaning their yards...

we are VERY VERY grateful for ANY (NON-POISONOUS OR POSSUM INFESTED) woods, and of course the opportunity to awaken in others a curious interest in this traditional So Cal phenom.

Toni couldn't wait to shave down this latest generous donation: a six footer.




#2 of the Four Mask Project being detailed by Antoinette & HH.

ETR has two masks on deck and a lot of eager helpers!

Boy, that's a busy little stretch of sidewalk!

Cool to see everyone getting stoked on carving, especially the kids!

They're the ones that get to carry on the tiki torch!

Every time Erik finds a seedy lookin' palm on the side of the freeway I've gotta play whack-a-mole with my Marples for a half hour till the viscious things skeedaddle.

Threadjack!

Adding to the possum frenzy - here's my favorite possum memory. When I first moved into my house, there was a family of possums living in my attic. So I bought a humane trap and it worked immediately. Caught the first one right at sunset. That night a storm was rolling thru so I felt bad so I climbed up onto roof and covered the cage and gave it some food. Early the next morning I was going to release it in the Everglades. To get it to the Everglades I had to place the cage in the back of my Jeep Cherokee. Have you ever smelled a scared possum? They release a musk much like a skunk. So I'm driving down the road with my head stuck out the window trying not to puke! The Everglades are surrounded by a levee, I pulled around a beach that airboats use and proceed to the top of the levee to release the possum. I have a bit of experience with handling animals from my days of working at a roadside zoo (remember I live in FL). The possum did not want to come out of the cage so I struggled trying to get him out. Eventually I get the possum out of the cage and it looked at me like "what now". It slowly walked down the levee towards the airboat, beach area. DONE - not quite. As it walked away I grabbed the cage and placed it back in my Jeep. As soon as I turned my back - SPLASH, SPLASH!! When I turned around the possum was gone and there were only a few ripples in the water!! I was sooo pissed. Not that it had gotten eaten - it was the fact that I took such good care and suffered thru the smell and struggled getting it released - I didn't get to see it get eaten!!!!

I caught 3 more and tried to duplicate the experience with no success - they all lived, damnit!!

Somewhere on this great interweb, there is/was a web page devoted to the possum experience a friend of mine had when one of the suckers made a nest in the engine of his pickup. He had to stop at a service station because smoke was coming out from under the hood! Boy was he surprised when he discovered the source of the problem!

If you can roast a chicken on your manifold why not a family of possums?

Here's some recent Tikijunk tabletop Tangs & Hawaiians. Marqs will follow soon. I intend this to be an endless series of American made carvings priced by size and detail to compete with the Cali-Bali hybrids currently issuing from our carving cousins in southeast asia.

Tutorials continuing with the girls catching up fast. Both Toni & Rita have made rapid progress on their first full logs. Both very much children of Bosko and based upon the balanced perfection of his Oki Oki instructional pattern.

These tikis are not for sale as they are based directly on Bosko's design. Too many people rip off my mentor and I shall not be one of them. Most likely Toni's will end up with her family in Hawaii & Rita's a gift to her father. Awwww.

Toni well under way on her first palm log...

Oops a little piece to glue back! Elmers?


____________

Rita's mystery wood... No varnish or stain besides the acrylic faux burn and the one tooth, just Weird Uncle Hodaddy's 100% Natural Tiki Rub! Oh, dig the big tooth. She wants to paint it gold!
