Holy moly! I gotta say that driftwood octopus is the beez kneez. VERY creative and VERY well done. Is this holding a prized place in your tiki lounge, or is it up for sale???

Great eye on that driftwood! Looks like it was destined to become the perfect octopus carve!

this was a commission piece actually. I was doing a tiki project & this guy rolled up with a piece of driftwood and asked me to "do something with it". So this is what I did. This is my first driftwood piece, but I'm stoked on it & I'm going to get some more to work with...

and thanks for all the compliments guys. I appreciate it.

So I'm off to volunteer at a little charity camp this weekend for kids with cancer & blood disorders. I'll probably do a demo. Did it last year, and it's an exhausting weekend, but a good cause. I'll be thinking about the kanaloa all weekend. I'm really excited about that one.

Have a nice weekend everyone.

Thanks Benz. Looking forward to spending a little time with you (and maybe Will?) here soon. I've been wanting to make the trip, but I suddenly have a new girlfriend, I'm trying to keep things going here, blah blah blah. But I need to make some time & get over there. So much new stuff I want to ask about, I've been making a list in my little notebook. Planning on bringing a notebook this time.

So anyway, here's a 60's Western Flyer tank bike for which I traded a small Moai over the weekend. Will be a neat little bar hopper when it's done, "all blinged up with big bars" (that seems to be my style of building bikes). Seems like I've been so busy with tiki stuff that my pile of junky old bikes is getting bigger.

And I need to go deliver the Octopus to it's new owner, Aaron, later. He's a very cool guy and he's super stoked on it. I have to admit, the octopus opened my eyes a little to the possibilities of working with driftwood & doing fish-themed stuff on it. I've had more inquiries about it than any other piece I've ever done, and it wasn't really all that difficult. I'll always be a tiki guy at heart, but the truth it that the fish stuff seems to have a broader appeal, so sometimes when I need to pay bills I find myself making fish stuff. So, I'll be scouring the area for more driftwood this week, and I'm going to do a tarpon out of cedar.

But today I'm going to continue working on the kanaloa & hopefully finish the headdress and start on the face. I am seriously turning it up this week and getting after it. I should have some pics to post later.

That Lono is gonna be sweet! It's always fun checking your thread to see what your up to, but it does make me
A bit jealous. Keep it going, never stop.

well, the gulf was quite kind to us on thursday, serving up some nice shoulder high glass with a few bigger sets rolling in here & there...

Shot these from the parking lot of the Beachhouse about an hour or so before I paddled out (I was waiting for the offshores to lay down a bit). I got a great late morning / early afternoon session & got some nice little tubes.

Now back to work!

ok, I did a little rough draw on the cedar tarpon.

This is a commissioned piece for my friend Liz on Davis Island. She's been very supportive of my whole tiki deal so I want to make sure she gets some nice stuff. Essentially the pieces I'm doing for her are Christmas gifts for her family members.

Damn, all your latest stuff is looking great pjc! Yeah I've been thinking about getting one of those lancelots to help rough out my carvings. I need to just go ahead and order it.
