pariartspaul, you missed your chance to build a balsa wood raft and sail it over yourself!
beautiful work ~ hey do you have the address of the new locale? it should be entered into "locating tiki" so the TC ohana can experience / inform!

Da Big Kahuna bar is going to be somewhere in the Coral Reef Hotel on Kuhio Ave in Honolulu. They are still working on it - I don't know when it will open.
Shipping update - We brought the sign over to UPS day before yesterday and they weighed it (52 lbs) and quoted us $456 to ship and another $85 to pack it. I told them they were crazy. So they said they could just wrap it in cardboard to get the size down, but they couldn’t insure it and it would cost $240 to ship plus the $85 to pack it. I walked out.
I called Hawaiian Airlines and explained and they put me in touch with a freight company here in Sacramento who gave me a quote of only $85.40 for the shipping with $1000 insurance - believe it or not. They put me in touch with their professional packers who will pack it in Styrofoam and heavy cardboard plus deliver it to the shipping company for $139.55.

Well,I'm amazed!I love the tiki mug with the sly grin-you did a wonderful job on that sign!It never fails to floor me how many extremely creative people are TC members.It would be terrific if it all could be put into a book-just superior craftsmanship.
