A few things I've been working on:

This one was a birthday gift for a bartender friend of mine. It's about 18 inches tall.



This one is "Hellboy".



I call him that because when I started grinding the natural bark in sort of a sideways manner, it started to look like flames....see?



And this one I call "the back-breaker", because I threw my back out hauling it in from the back yard to start carving & missed the best swell of the year so far...damn it.

I see a definate progression, man. Keep it up. Those logs you are using look nice and smooth. Wish I could get ahold of some of that......after I clear my driveway of the million tons of palm that's there now!!

Love the mouth-teeth grind on the back breaker.
Keep them coming.

Thanks for the kind words. You guys got me all jacked so went home and burned stuff.

The back-breaker with a little charr on him...and NO, I did not paint the teeth, just sanded 'em.



And Hellboy got a little fire on him as well.



And here is a Marquesian I started drawing out last night after the burning commenced. I'm hoping to make some real progress on him this weekend



Mahalos to all!

So, had a nice relaxing weekend at the house, as it was too windy for the boat.

Sunday was tiki day, so first I drew it:



Then I cut it:



Then I torched & sanded it (as you can see, there's all kinds of tiki junk in my front yard):



My first trad Hawaiian deal. He's a shade under 2 ft tall. Way stoked with how it came out, think I'm going to do a bigger one.

AND...I went out to my secret spot (I love this place!!!!) & saw this solid 8 ft piece that was just begging to be liberated. Hoping to go back with my buddy's F250 & a saw here in the next day or 2. I was literally sitting in bed thinking about it last night. It will be mine.

I've been getting A LOT of response locally from my news story. Hoping to make enough money to fix my old Riviera! Here it is:

Made some progress on the new Marq.

I really dig this style & want to start doing more of them.

Dude! Looking good! Saw you on the news. I heard of a Riviera body or parts for a 65. Someone mentioned it on the Damnation Speed Shop message board. You might want to register there and check in. Jon is the main moderator. I haven't done much carving recently, Just been too busy...and man its getting hot out there.

Hoping to sell a few tikis so I can get it done.
