I had a great time at this year's Caliente, thanks to Wildsville Man and all that make it happen! I sold enough to break even so that makes me happy and got to have SkooTiki as my neighbor, which was an added bonus. Our work compliments each other and Scott is a super nice dude, with a laid back and easy attitude towards vending that is refreshing. Special thanks to Hang10 for the unusual and tasty beers and other libations that kept me smiley all weekend!

Jon also added some frog albums, swizzles, and a Golden Tiki menu plus a mini bottle of my favorite rum Zaya to the mix, thanks!!

I would like my carvings to be quicker and more immediate looking but that is just irrational thinking on my part.
"Gretsch" is almost done. He is made from jelutong and will be painted orange and black and clear with a green felt covered palm tree. I will also add a green light.

My son in law asked me if I was going to include a whammy bar. I briefly thought about it, but when he asked I had to include. I will carve something on it.

This seven foot piece of birch is named "Birch" because I thought that would be really clever.

I will have him finished by the upcoming Tiki Kon event here in Portland in July.

The main body portion will be blue with clear highlights and a coconut colored monkey on top.

I've been disconnected from the web
for a couple wks & look what I missed.
"Gretsch" looks like white chocolate.
Yummy.

Thanks will carve, he does not look so white chocolate any longer.
A combo of orange, walnut, and clear paint and I cut up an old teal sweatshirt and glued it to a plywood palm tree back.

Always a pleasure seeing what is coming out of that artist brain of yours!

LLT, you have always been an inspiration to me, thanks for the kind words and will see you soon in San Diego! Thanks hil, and H10 that is a good pull, have not seen Airick in a long time! He sold a few year's ago to a very drunk individual who was not into tiki but was checking things out at Tiki Oasis. He borrowed money from his equally inebriated pal, then all of them loaded into a cab for the ride home.

Here go a few progress shots.
"Captain Fritz" has been a case where I feel like I'm drifting with no place to go, but turns out that is what this piece is about.

"Birch" has taken most of my recent time.

Man,
These things keep getting better & better.
How you jam so much stuff in to one carve?
