So, I took a week off to shake off the burnout. Here's a little cedar lono I did yesterday to donate to the "Faces of Courage" silent auction (it's to benefit a little camp for kids with cancer & blood disorders).

Also, some of the masks I've made recently.

I love that wood! Looking great. And I like the way you snuck in the Big Toe

Hey guys, been kinda "blocked" for awhile & trying to get re-motivated. But I did make this little tiki for the owner of a little local-owned pizza restaurant called "The Deck" here in Tampa. I get their pizzas delivered to the house occasionally and a few weeks ago when I called up over there to order a pizza, the dude who answered the phone, after he entered my address into the system asks "is this the tiki guy?....the owner wants to talk to you..." So basically the dude gets on the phone & says "hey man, I'm the owner and I'm bringing your pizza".

So he came out & looked at my stuff, and basically commissioned a piece for his house. Says he may be buying one for the business as well. He likes tikis. He wanted one to put a piece of glass on to make a table, and he wanted it to kinda look like he was holding up the table. So his arms are extending up & I tried to give him a "strained" look. And he's missing a tooth.





And here's another cedar mask:

Dude that's an awesome story! Did he hook you up with a free pizza? lol.

Really nice finish on that one, the mask is looking great as usual, and the buddha is very cool...you were due for a NON-TIKI piece anyway very creative.

Showed it to him today & he's stoked on it. Going to spar it since it's going outside on the back porch.

And last week I stopped in to tell him that I hadn't forgotten him & would have his tiki in a week, and he gave me a meatball sub for free! Hopefully I'll get a free pizza before it's over....

And I've been shopping around for new trucks for the last month & think I found the one I'm buying today. Fingers crossed!

Nice! The best meatball sub is a free meatball sub

Good luck with the truck!

thanks Nixxy...

Basically I made a deal last night to buy a black 2005 Toyota Tundra crew cab with a 4.7 V8. I am a VERY, VERY happy guy right now. Between my 9 1/2 foot surfboards, the tikis, fishing & camping stuff, etc... this whole SUV deal just doesn't work for me. I've really missed having a real truck.

The last few years I have been limited to local driving, as I just didn't trust my vehicle to make long trips without crapping out. Now I can go surfing whenever I want without having to rely on rides from other people. I want put a locking toolbox in it, and that way I can roll around with a basic set of tiki tools & a small chainsaw. I'm always seeing dead palms, and if I was always equipped to take 'em down & sort 'em out on the spot, I'd have a lot more future tikis laying around. This makes my life better all the way around...I just want to go around hugging people right now.

I take possession of her on Friday. So, I need to bust a few serious tikis out, because in the next few weekends I plan to get some packing blankets from U-haul, fill the bed with tikis, and hit every damned beach-themed place from Clearwater to Sarasota and try to get my name & some of my stuff out there.

You will love the Tundra until gas prices go back up. Nice ride otherwise. get those Tikis out there!

I wish I owned a small trailer for our SUV...

Yeah, unfortunately I pretty much have to have at least a big 6 just to pull my boat, so I don't have the option of buying a little truck with a 4 banger. And at a little over 6"2, I'm not a little guy. I can barely fit in my buddy's little standard cab nissan p/u....a full sized truck is a much better fit for me. My pathfinder, and before that my 4 runner, were not very roomy or comfortable. Every toyota that my family has owned has been a rock solid, dependable car that ran forever, so I just said "screw it, I'm going back to a toyota truck and I'm staying there"...

I think I'm going to get my little "surf soul tiki" logo done across my tailgate with some custom vinyl letters.

Oh yeah...Big plans....
