Yep! It was my plan to bring the video camera as well as film and digital cameras to document this (mainly because I usually forget about half of what I see in situations like this). But making a DVD and/or booklet of the event for others is highly do-able. I'm a professional photographer and used to work as photo editor for a local weekly, so I've got a little experience in this sort of thing.

Benz, Silver,
Thank you. Maybe if you post after the seminar that there will be a dvd and or booklet you can guage people's interest and see if it is worth your time to put this together. I know I am interested, and if it does not come together i would at least like a copy of the footage you shot.
I hope too that we will get to see TOOLS, peoples favorites and why and where to get them. I am a tool junky, but these carvers will be able to show us how to get a kit together without breaking the bank.
Thanks again,
TT

First, make sure you email me to get on the list. I can't tell a TC name from an email to know if you are on or not by that method. Just drop me a line and you get the current info when it comes out.

Second, I am going up to
Smoky Mountain Woodcarver's today to look around and discuss what I am doing. See if they might sponsor us in any way and get prices for bass wood for everyone to practice on. I'll post pictures over on the Coon Tiki site and forum.

I should have the info to get the lodge booked this week and will pick a date and start figuring out prices and then send out a suggested list. It's pretty complicated to arrange. But, everyone will have lots of time to figure out if they can make it.

It's going to be a great time.

I am in favor of taping it too. All I have is a cruddy old Hi-8 cam, but if some folks bring a couple of digital vidoe cams, I'll help shoot it. I am pretty good at it.

I'd really like a tape/dvd of this event. Count me as an interested party. I wish I could go, but can't get the time from work or fit it into the budget. Even though being there would be 10,000 times more informative, I could still learn alot from a DVD.

Went by the Woodcarvers place today. They have chisels at good prices, but are more geared towards the machine carvers and the small detail stuff. So they sent me down the road to another guy and unfortunately he wasn;t in the shop. It was like 70 degrees, so, hey, go figure. Nice day to do other things. But, he had the large stuff. Big logs and a huge fork truck and crane truck. If I need a big log for a home project, this is the man. I am goin gto call tomorrow and see if he can hook me up with some logs for our work. Here are pics of the place.

Logs and the crane truck.

A huge pig and gal carving.

Cute monkey in the tree.

This big motha has some bear trapped in its wood I am sure.

Hey, Swanky - have you guys considered maybe (3) large group projects for the seminar? I mean, we could all work on a bunch of small individual tikis, but couldn't we do that at home? Just a thought, but it would be cool to work in close with the teachers and hopefully pick up some good technique. Or, maybe do both - everyone could work on their own small tikis and "rotate in" with the teachers on the larger group tikis. We could all take our little tikis home, finished or not, and the teachers could donate the "group" tikis to the Tiki Temple of their choice on behalf of Tiki Central in the interest of furthering the Modern Day Tiki Revival (The Mai Kai, Omni Hut, and Tiki Ti all come to mind). But take that as a suggestion only - it's your gig.

It's a good thought. How much do you think we could get done in a weekend? If we could get a large log and have everyone taking their turns with it and get it near finished over the weekend, that would be great. The format for what the guys want to do is still open, so, it's up to them. I thought we'd also do a smaller project in basswood with a small dowel for everone. But when it comes to chisel work, I think maybe we need a decent sized log to work with.

I for one can't wait. I do need the dates to be decided so that I can reserve some vacation at work. I guess we should get commitments from the would be student carvers so we know who all is going to be there for sure. I just hope we don't see this thing fall through due to a lack of participants! I don't know if we will ever have this golden opportunity again. Imagine the creative tiki talent that could be assembled in a cabin on a Tennessee hillside! Just getting to meet many of you and talk in person will be fantastic! And then there is the exchange of ideas and sharing of carving methods. It will be Nirvana with band aids at the ready! C'mon carvers, STEP UP AND BE COUNTED!
See you there.......8FT Tiki

I think it may be great to have everyone work on one large tiki and also each have smaller individual efforts. sounds like super fun all the way around.
Swanky, what is the name of the carving shop and do they have a web site? what brand chisels do they have?

Ain't gonna make it. However, I'm all over the tape/dvd idea...I'd gladly pay for that...there's much potential for that idea.

Awesome! We have a date set. I will post a few questions and float some ideas on your off-site Coon-Tiki Forum.

I have the cabin booked and am looking for another cabin nearby as an alternative to people staying in the hotel. I have added a number of comments in the forums. I think I will be taking registration in a week or so. Email me if you haven't already!

Things are pretty squared away, so I have announced the registration date. I am giving it one week so word wil get to everyone. Those who have already emailed saying you are coming or are debating it, you will be given first chance to attend. After those folks have said yes or no, the remaining spaces will be filled in order of the new emails. If you have not contacted me and want to attend, email me on the 14th!

Once we have our band of merry carvers, we'll go over a lot of details in emails amongst ourselves. It's going to be a great time!
