No Andy....

THIS is the big one.

I'm hoping to turn it into one of the biggest tikis in the state.

Anyone know what the biggest tiki in Florida is???

This one might be it unless the Mai Kai has a larger one I might have missed. There was a guy that posted a huge trunk of a hardwood down south some years ago.

Happy skinning!

Mahalo!

Looks Great! And I agree the letters are looking real cool. Fine work. Stain?

Used a dremel with a carbide burr for the letters...

and I have to get it to stop sapping before I stain it.

I think we're all gonna be saying "burr" in the morning....

supposed to be in the 30's tonight!!!

And damn... new chick is a drinker. She had me out till 4 last night, so I didn't get anything done at the Tahitian today. She's a flight attendant and she leaves in the morning for a couple of days, so I should be able to get this one done.

Right out of a Bogart movie but flails in comparison. Some may live vicariously through your escapades and John D. McDonald~esque descriptions of the many women you have encountered over the many post I have read...



Are you carving tomorrow?

yeah, it's been a crazy year for sure Andy.

And I'll be back on it today. This thing is wicking water up out of the roots and sapping like crazy so I'm gonna have to create some kind of moisture barrier (gardening sheet plastic under the landscaping pebbles)...but other than that it's going great. Hoping to finish up here today or tomorrow.
