Mahalo everyone! (Ben, Rodeo & johhny...) I thought you all would get a kick out of the process! I left out alll the hours of "in-between" time it takes to really do the nice finish work on Lono, But Im sure you all know how long it can take to make da kine right!

Mahalo again for all the aloha!

Really nice stuff, So what would a piece like that generally cost? I love it but is it in my budget, just checking, hope you don't mind.

Aloha again everyone! Well, to answer the price questions...Back home in Hawaii these makau can run from $250 to $350 (and sometimes higher) but I do have "mainland" prices and special pricing Ive put together for my bruddah's & sistah's here on TC. This particular makau due to its size should be priced fairly high (island & mainland price) but this one Im offering at an extremely makepono price for all members of TC which is only $175.00 (S&H not included). So, If any of you kanaka's would like to pick this buggah up or maybe place a custom order, just let me know anytime!

Mahalo to everyone for all the aloha and Im glad you all liked this post!

Malama Pono!!!

Aloha and big Mahaloz to everyone who left the kind words and appreciation! Its been a real pleasure to become a part of TC and IM kicking myself in the okole for not joining sooner! I love all the artwork and boundless creativity Ive seen on this site and it warms this bruddah's heart to hear all the nice things all of you have to say about my work!

Mahalo again everyone!

Malama Pono!!!
