Hey Mike, package received.

Mahalo brother. If you ever find yourself in Tampa, I've got a leather sofa for you to sleep on.

so yeah, I have little live carving gig once a week at a little pub here in town call YEOMAN's ROAD. I've been calling it "tiki tuesday". I pretty much bring whatever tiki I happen to be working on at the time, and a few others, and just kinda hang out & work on stuff. I've sort of been doing it for a few months now so people kinda know I'm there on Tuesdays. I actually get a few people down there, and several people have said to me that between the tiki carving deal earlier, and then the open mic night later, Tuesday night has become the best night of the week to hang out there. And I actually meet some fairly interesting women as well (last night was no exception...met a girl who works for Camel cigarettes, she basically goes around giving people cigarettes. she hung out with us for awhile...and wow, she was NOT hard to look at...and she just texted me, so I think I'm in).

Anyway, here are a few pics from last night. I put some fishhooks on the chubby lono's nose. And Kristina drew out a little tiki on a small section I cut from the sunken tree, so this will be the first "sunken log tiki". I'm really stoked about cutting into it....

Good lookin carves for sure. I wish you lived on the right coast...we could get some good sessions in (carving wood and water)

Where the hell is the chainsaw driftwood panel?

Have your pretty assistant sketch one up for you...

yeah, I spoke to her about it last night...

and then the uber hot cigarette girl I met last night came by today and I gave her the piece of driftwood I was gonna use so she could make kitchen shelf with it.

Oh well! Looks like I need to take the HO BOAT out driftwood hunting this weekend...

anyway, started the last headdress post on the "fir trader" lono...and that knot was NOT easy to chisel without it breaking, but it seems to have worked out...

Lookin good!

A hint from my experience with knotwoods....

A gnar burr (3/4" course ball or cone) is like a Honey Badger with no collateral damage. 1/4" drive though! Then return to the Chisels and finish.

Then you can start practicing flat work...

Aloha!

okee dokee...

3rd post done!

at this point I need to just finish the back of the head, figure out what I may do to decorate the body a little, and then sand it up & poly it.

She's supposed to give you wood, not the other way round... ;]

The new Tikis look great!

so I cut into the first piece of sunken log, and though I know it isn't all like this, the first spot I cut into was a big rot spot!

back to the drawing board....lol...

New guy here from St. Augustine, I picked your pages to read cause I thought "cool a guy from Florida" I started reading last night and tonight, and 78 pages later I'm blown away.

Its kinda strange reading about 3 years of a mans life and never even have met him. The progress you have made from that first carve to now is amazing. I'm new to this and only hope 3 years from now I will be half as far as you.

Whats cool is the back story to all of this. Most of the people have been following along day to day for 3 years and look forward to each post and picture you put up day to day.

I read it all in 2 days so its fresh in my mind.

The ups and downs along the way is what makes your story great. The joy you had when someone actually wanted to buy one of your tikis. Loosing a couple of girls along the way only to get excited cause you just met another one. Not being able to go to Costa Rica, but super stoked when a rich German wanted your art in his super rich yard. And all along,,,,,, at least 30% of your pictures your dog is there day in and day out only wanting to hang out with you.

This is basically nothing that each one of us has not gone through. The circumstances may be different, but the story is the same.

Life is awesome, thanks for putting yours out there for us to ride along with.

My parents live in Tarpon Springs, when I get down there, the beer is on me.

Vipon (Levi)
