HO BRAH!

Great work. Lot of Work! You must be over 100 years old to produce that many big logs. What's your secret? Do you use an air chisel or something?

Nice stuff G! Some great new styles there!

I really wish there was a market here in the midwest... I love carving a lot of tikis... but I don't have the room to keep 'em all.
Tikis don't sell here.

Good luck in the upcoming festival season!

Thanks alot Lake. Yeah I decided to do things a little different here lately......I like the older full bodied styles more, but oddly enough the other styles seem to sell better. Go figure. Guess you have to know what you are looking at as far as the classics go to drop some dough on them....I wish things would pick up for you there. I know you work your ass off, and you deserve more reward for it. A local news station just aired a minute long story on me here last week. If I can figure out how to make a computer video of it I'll send it to you to check out.

Hope that "Lake" is warming up for you. I know you are dying to get wet!

G.

Fantastic work Gary! You inspired me to do my first tiki last summer. See it here: http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=13278&forum=7&12
I really admire your work. Could you send us some pictures of your tools and workshop area?

Oh my gawd, I've never seen so many tikis by one person, Awesome work and a cute little wahine to help you out....Got it made my friend.
I'm thinking you're like Santa Claus or something and you have a bunch of little elves all lit up on rum carving and sanding 24 hours a day.

Thanks Beach, yes it is a lot of work. My back hurts, my knees, my hands, shoulders....you name it. One thing though, it is very rewarding. I enjoy it. It's not only profitable, it's also that I enjoy doing it......

Just saw the folding bar.Pretty kool.I did some much like yours not long ago for Hawaiian Tropics.The shef supports stayed in tact and shelves folded up.The legs also stayed attached.The entire bar folded up and had a 2 handles to carry it.About 5 inches wide when folded.The top did have to be removed.Folded up or out in about 3 minutes.Weighed about 45 LBS plus the top.I used window latches to hold the top in place from underside.If you have ever been to any of Hawaiian Tropics events you may have seen them.No parrots either.All tiki and bamboo.If I find a pic. I will post it.
