It's funny how the most obnoxious tikis are the ones people want the most .... oh well, gotta do what the customer's want!

.....so, not much carving the last few days ... had a guy call with a few freshly cut logs ... very heavy (damn near killed me loading them), so I pushed the Jeep to get them home .... ended up with 5 nice 5 to 6 foot logs and 3 end table size logs ....



... and as I was driving away .... slowly as to not blow the shocks and snap the springs, I glanced at the field to my right and saw a pile of palms down the hill ... Upon further investigation, .... A GOLDMINE of nicely dried logs!

.... My 50 year old bones could only snag seven logs before screaming for ibuprofen, but they are a nice lot .... can't wait to get choppin! .... (oh, and I promised the Jeep a fresh change of oil for all the "heavy lifting" the last couple of days....

NICE SCORE! It is strange how most people do love the big, goofy white smiles and yet the more "knowledgable" tiki fans despise them. I can't say much because I'm guilty of pandering to the masses as well. Looking forward to seeing what's next. CARVE DEEP!

Thanks 'T' ... no dolly or carts for these .... they were down a slope in the middle of a field so it was carrying them one by one up to the Jeep! .... It's definitely a labor of love with this tiki carving gig ..

... hey, at least the cats are happy with the new stack!




... yea, Aloha, it is turning out to be a balance between traditional stuff, which some people really love because of the history, and the 'tourist' stuff with the BIG TEETH and funky bods ..... so, that being said ..... the last two days have been spent carving one for the 'tourists' ...

This is one of the 6-footers .... and yes, it's going to be a BIG MOUTH! .... a 'shaka' BIG MOUTH!





.... Pander Bears! ..... Don't mention "Pander Bears" ... or they'll be putting in orders for carved marsupials ... (Is a panda a marsupial?) .... next thing ya know they'll be wanting a carving of a bear with a salmon in it's mouth!!

Thanks for stopping and Have a Great Day!!

Got quite a bit of carving done on this Shaka BIG MOUTH .... we had a cold rain storm come through which sucks for getting any carving done! I don't work well when I can't feel my hands!

Should be sanding this big guy tomorrow ...





... of course, taking a break from carving means I have time to clean up a couple logs! Good Times!



Thanks for stopping and Have a Great Day!

Cool looking group of work you got there. Keep up the good work. I thought I saw some dust flying around over that way. Ha Ha! Tiki Stan.

Thanks neighbor! Yep, that cloud of sawdust over Newport Road was all mine!

Thanks Jeff ..... this big boy is now done ..... I'm inspired by your Tahitians so may try to put my spin on one of those next ....

Here is the finished 'shaka' BIG MOUTH! .... just waiting for a sunburned tourist in a Hawaiian shirt to buy him up!
