It was fun going up there for the day. Rode up in Will's 53 Sedan Delivery loaded with all kinds of tiki stuff. The spirit hook had cracked at the legs and its time was limited (probably from when we wrestled it out of the rubber mold). You can see the beginning of the story here http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=26630&forum=1&start=0 We drilled out the legs and placed a dowel in them. Nice and sturdy now!

Awesome work Mr. Plugger !!! I can't wait to see it at Quiet Waters Park. Alohastation was right to start the thread. Let me know if u need any help with it. I wish I had a truck to mooch some of those sabal palms that died at the park. I miss all the shade that all those Australian Pines provided. BUFFBAD

P.S. Aloha, you were right about the palm in BUFF bags a BIG ONE post. The palm is a queen or royal palm and very fibrous but i am up to the challenge.

He's been busy on some home projects. After 6 months I finally managed to fix the broken tiki at Quiet Waters Park mountain bike trail. Chopped the bottom off of it used some epoxy and lag bolts on the cracked legs - he was ready to be placed. Since the legs broke, I planted a 4x4 post and lag screwed him to the pole. The base is just slightly off the ground and the tiki should last for years. He has been placed on a high speed berm at the mid section of the trail. If you are riding there is no way to miss him. If you are driving you can see him from both the Turnpike and Hillsboro (northbound turnpike and either way on Hillsboro). The only way to see him up close is on a bike or by hiking out to him. Thanks again Will - and we're ready for the next one!!

This lamp doesn't looks real good... this lamp looks more perfect than perfect !
The nicely smoothed wood let his grain freely talk.

I love it.

Benjamin.

Here's a picture of the WPlugger PNG mask that I "won" in the 2009 Art Swap. Hung and spotlighted, looking magnificent! Thanks Will!

Wow, great stuff. Tons of character in these pieces. Could you explain your process for staining the Mai Kai cement statues? The finish on those is awesome.
