Being less hard on yourself is the most daunting challenge for any artist if you ask me.



Awesome...that is what my fellow carver and I have been trying to convince ourselves of since day one. At the very least, when we are working we are doing more than most in the way of actually making/carving.

Thanks for the great work and words of wisdom!

A new 4 1/2 Tangaroa bar for Tiki Central's own Florida Bureau Chief of Mixology, the 'Ragin Rarotongan.. the spot on the mask in the last photo is an orb sent by Tangaroa to inspect my work..

Super clean BK!

Looks like you have a nice stash of aged bamboo.

That bar has some great lines and the style of the mask compliments it perfectly.

How about a looksee at the panel you have going on in the background?

Thanks, brah..yeah-you can probably see I'm piercing the bottom decorations on the Meeting House panel now. It gets work little by little when the mana feels right.

Wow! I almost messed myself when Dave sent me the pics of my bar. I have always wanted a Basement Kahuna piece, and now I will have three! The bar, a double sided Marquesan wall plaque as seen at the Marketplace in Waikiki, and the mask he just posted. I am honored, and cannot wait to sit at it for the first time and sip my new fav out of sippin' safari The Nui Nui! Dave is not only an extraordinary artist but a true gentleman, and I can't wait to have him over for drinks. Stay tiki....Aaron

Only a short time now until the new issue of Tiki Magazine comes out, for which I, Basement Kahuna, am your humble featured carver! Sharing the issue with Boobamben and a lot of other talented folk. Many deep, dark Basement Kahuna secrets revealed. They were going to do a "me" version of the "Demi Moore pregnant" cover but they went with the Ben cover instead. Probably better.
