MDM,

This is EPIC, a culmination of many of your skills in one project...You need to make a mug that looks like it once it's finished...Then you can keep it with the trailer for going to events...Thanks for always inspiring my desire to create...

PAul

I'm with hang10tiki MORE MORE MORE. Mike you do know that since you can also sew that you have to make a shirt that matches the curtains with Dawn's fabric. You wouldn't want to clash when you go to Amy's Mohave events. I'm so impressed! Wendy

Posted on Dawn's thread.

Hi Dawn, I think all your fans who visit here should now go to MadDogMikes page at
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=29606&forum=18&start=1080
to watch him use your wonderful fabric to decorate his trailer. It's going to be outstanding. I've told him that he also needs to make a matching shirt or maybe you have one made already? This is such fun.

Best Wishes on your Palm Springs show, Wendy

Dang Mike what DON'T you turn into some kind of freaky tiki art project?

How many people can fit into that little 'ol teardrop without crying? Looking forwards to the restoration/tikification progress.

Still alive and kickin' Chris.

This week has been tied up organizing and cooking a Christmas Luau for 60 people.


Was it any good? Here's the "after" picture


Next week work and Christmas. Hopefully the week after I'll work on my trailer some. Got my Sophista-Tiki fabric in from spoonflower.com - need to sew some curtains and such. Got the logo ready to send off for a magnetic sign decal for the side of the trailer. Got the inside covered wall-to-wall in a 4 inch memory foam mattress, need to work on some bedding too.

Pig Cheeks are supposed to be the best part. Did you take the head home? Wendy

Sorry about the thread hijacking Mike! Pigjacking?

Looking forward to trailer pics!

Wendy, we took the cheeks off but I didn't keep the pig head - maybe it would have made a good mold for a mug

I got a chance to do a little work on my trailer and have almost finished up my Christmas present benches.

I cut a piece of 4 inch memory foam that fills the entire inside of my trailer for a bed and sewed a removable fleece cover for it (I hate sewing knits! And it has enough static electricity to power a small villiage, I hope it doesn't shock the bejesus out of me while I'm asleep!)


I made curtains from Dawn's fabric and started working on a matching border to go all the way around the inside of the trailer. In retrospect, I should have pained the border orange to start with and painted the brown (darker) over the orange (lighter).



The benches are ceramic decor embedded in concrete benches. The Hula Dancer and Mermaid benches are acid stained a blue/green color, it washed out in the picture. The Fall Leaves and Garden Gnomes are acid stained brown. (The legs for the blue/green benches are staining as the picture was taken)

Nice work on the teardrop, that's gonna be a lot of fun.. I'd go with biggest diameter wheel you can, it'll pull much nicer especially if you load it for trips.. Also auto tires are easier to replace, more places will be able to mount a new tire. Not a big issue, it's just fresh in my mind, I had to mount a trailer tire this summer with large screwdrivers because we couldn't find any place nearby that had a machine small enough.. I invented several new cuss words!!

Love the hula bench, cool ideas......
