Hmmm... Will, where have I seen this mouth before? It looks SO familiar!


Will is a supremely talented carver. His 'big hair' tiki that I got at the carving jam some months ago will be prominently displayed behind the bar in my home verrrry soon.

Will, sent you a PM.

Evidence that you should never have a government employee do anything without supervision.



Will kindly donated this large tiki to a local park. While planting the tiki it was cracked and left to its own devices. The wind finished the job and broke it in half. I went out Saturday to see if I could fix the crack and when I got there I saw this. I have a plan to repair the break but it will not be as elevated as it was. This just sucks!!!!

Mahalos to Will for hosting the gang and turning us loose on the concrete Tiki's.

And, major updates and some much needed renovations are in the works at the Mai-Kai. Pictures soon.

The park gets another try.
I didn't spend so much time on this one.
Hope they get this one up OK.

Had a great visit with Benzart monday.
We worked on an older tiki with breaking up legs.
Aloha Station & I brought all our latest stuff for
show & tell & got to see all Bens stuff & play with
his toys.
Thanks for the wood chunks for the road & the leg help.
Will





Also the table lamps
for Rob.
He is doing the lamp part.

Thanks will and Tom for the visit the other day, I Really enjoyed having you guys up here, Thanks for the Paddle too, I Appreciate it !
Hope that tiki repair finishes out OK and holds up for another 50 years.
Awesome stuff you are doing with those old molds, except that it seems you and everyone else are having WAY Too Much FUN! That's Supposed to be WORK I Thought.
Next time you come up I'd love to see one of these up close if you could bring one?

Thanks Again for coming up.

Will, they will be lamps one of these days, I promise. Have to find someone with a big enough drill press. I've tapped out all the neighbors. Might have to hit up a high school shop teacher...
