Unfortunately I was rained out today so nothing got done.

Love the "Despondent" Moai, your chisel works are getting much better.
On the palm tikis, especially at the foot and hip areas, don't go too thin without incorporating some support, they will break off way sooner than later. I've done it myself and see many palm tikis way too thin at the feet and Always see them breaking. Not good if they are for a commercial establishment, the first one that breaks off onto a customer will spell the end for them all. Just be careful.

thanks Benz, that means a lot. I'll be down there again in a few weeks seeing my grandfather, and I'll call you beforehand & maybe set something up.

and yeah, I've kinda learned that lesson (again) here lately. Went too thin on one of those dolphin swirls at the New Pass Grill, so I have to cut it in half and try to drill & dowell it because it's kinda swaying in the wind. Hopefully I'll be able to get it resolved.

So anyway, I made this Ku for a very successful German develeper guy on Longboat Key this past week. Similar to the one I just made at New Pass, but not exact. And I'm doing another piece in his back yard this week. This guy's house is ridiculous, across the street from the beach with a canal out back, so I'm honored that he wants my stuff out front.

Holy Cow that is BIG! Looks great, is it much more difficult to carve logs in place like that?

yeah...it's kind of a pain in the ass working around it on a scaffold, and I get really nervous having to us a chainsaw up there to skin the log and stuff, but other than that it's cool.

Kinda started this one day before yesterday, and then took it up to the bar this afternoon to beat on it some more. Commission piece for one of the guys who works at the beach house who was into the tikis & wanted one for the house. He's a cool guy & I want him to be stoked.

Well, finished cutting this one for the most part. Just a little clean-up, torch & stain and it's done.



And here's a little snook rod holder I did for one of my best friends.

Thanks bro.

I'd like to catch a closer look at some of those guitars that are hanging behind you in that pic on your thread.

Well, finished both the little AND the big ku, and started a little lono & a moai. The little one is 3 1/2 ft, the big one is 6 1/2 feet tall on a 4 1/2 foot base for a total of 11 feet high, and the lono & moai are both around 2 feet.

The ku's were for money, the lono is a gift, and the moai is a donation to a benefit tomorrow for a local guy who had the terrible misfortune of being attacked by a 9 foot bull shark while spearfishing offshore. He survived, but obviously has some serious medical expenses.

that would be my buddy Cheeta Chad. He's a painter out here one Anna Maria Island.

He let's me home-base out of his pad.

And thanks for the props guys.
