Hey bro,

Great work on the tikis. You said "the lonboard house", are you down in Indiatlantic. Where do you get all of your logs??

Congrats on the tool upgrade. I just bought one of the Pfeils myself a few weeks back. Looks just like one of the ones you bought - the real wide one that's beveled on both sides. That one was $35 at Woodcraft.

Hey man, I'm actually not in Indialantic, I'm in Tampa. I surf whenever it's up, and longboard house is one of my favorite shops.

And I have a super-secret spot with piles and piles of palm logs for the taking over here on this coast.

Haven't posted in a while, but have made progress on a few pieces. I'll try to get some photos up in a few days.

Hey guys, as said before I made a little progress on some stuff. Apologies for the crappy cell phone pics.

Anyway, here's another one of my hair-brained ideas: ladies and gentlemen, the start of the fishing rod holder tiki.



and today I drew out the rest of the face on the spearfisher.



...and started hackin' it out.

Hey, I'm not sure about this for a rod holder, he may scare the fish away?

Looks great tho.

Dude, by the time they see him, they're already on the spear!

Anyway, he got a bit of a haircut today:



I'm diggin' this one. The head came out so much better than I expected, now I have to re-carve his body, because now he looks like crap from the neck down. Damn it!

These are great tikis.
You seemed to have captured the surfing/fishing lifestyle in your work.

Well bro, I don't think I've captured it as much as it has captured me!

Thanks for the props. I'm stoked on this piece, as I think I progressed a bit this time around.

My buddy that I'm making it for came by last night and he's diggin' it, so I'm happy.

Awee stuff dude!
Loved the one on the surfboard! Man, you´re lucky to have that spot for collecting logs, I´d really like to get a place like that. It´s a bit different here up north, getting mostly pines to carve. Saying that, it makes the tikis different, so it´s alright. I´d like to carve a couple of palms one day though.

Anyway, keep carving!

So I bought a dremel tool, and busted out this little flower at the base of a tiki I'm working on for my buddy Howard's place out at the beach:



Also, I have started a little deal at my house on Tuesday nights where a few friends come by to drink a few beers, and hang out while I bust out some tiki stuff...OR...(gasp)..actually take on a piece of their own, like my friend Frank here. Frank is quite a talented artist already, so I'm stoked that he caught the tiki bug. If he keeps at it he'll probably fly right past me by his 2nd or third piece. Also, he's actually a professional tournament fisherman / fishing guide, and is extremely passionate about it, so I'm hoping for some serious fish / fishing themed tikis in the future. I was so stoked to get him on it I pretty much just sat back and let him have the chisels & watched the action unfold.



Just a mouth so far, I roughed it out with the chainsaw, and he spent a solid hour gouging the rest out, and yeah, I coached him quite a bit ("go big Frank, go big"), but I think that this is a hell of a nice 1st piece and I'm stoked for my boy. Go Frank!



TIKI TUESDAY is a success!!!!

I would like to thank the good people at Sears for honoring their warranty, and honoring it, and honoring it.

This is my 3rd craftsmen electric chainsaw. I broke the last one cutting out the mouth of Frank's tiki, so I went in the next day and they swapped it out again. I'm wondering how many more times they're going to do this before they say "OK, that's it, no more free chainsaws for you pal!". But for now, we're good and I have a new chainsaw.



So I immediately cut out a new surfboard holder. I have a good friend who's shaping his own boards & opened his own little surf shop, and I think this one's going to be a gift for the shop.





And Frank came over and put some teeth on his piece. He's hooked.

Kinda reminds me of an evil Mr. Kool Aid.

So, one of my best friend's 5 yr old son came by with him and likes the tikis, so I asked him if he'd like to make one, and he said yes. I handed him a bunch of stuff I printed for ideas and whatever, and he picked out the picture of Billy the Crudd's one-eyed monster tiki and said "this one".

So here he is, with his partially done tiklopse. The kid is so stoked he can barely contain himself. He started this project on Sunday, and his mom told me that it's all he has talked about since then. Kids are pretty cool.



Here he is getting a little help on the torch.



And my fishing rod holder is almost done too. Just trying to figure out what to do with the eyes.





I've actually been getting a lot done on the tikis since I decided to stop going to the bar and getting drunk every night. It's amazing what you can get done when you're not smashed all the time. It's all good!

A little more progress on some stuff.

This is a mask I did for a buddy of mine. Planed it off, cut it with a chainsaw (no chisels or grinders), and torched it a bit. Start to finish in about 45 minutes.



Another surfboard holder for a buddy of mine's shop:



...starting to rough the body in.



The spearfisher almost done.



A piece I'm almost done with that is going to a friend's place at the beach.



This is my friend Frank's 1st piece. Frank is definitely an arteest.



And the 5 yr old tiki master posing with his tiklopse. He's so stoked he can barely see straight.






It's all good in the hood!
