Yeah, Any more Weird messages?? Been Missing you around these parts, Hope all is well with you. Come show us what you are up to!



Well hello fellas! - JP, Ben, and everyone else. It has been a while - and I've been remiss! It's great to hear from you and thanks for checking in on me. I'm glad to see you guys are still at it - and that Ben is all healed up

Life has been catching up with me, (kids in college, new job, surgery (gall bladder out! Ewww!), lots of travel etc.), so I have not been doing enough of my own stuff - I have had almost zero time to carve for the last 6 months or so. I have been lurking on TC though, and checkin out the great stuff - you guys amaze me.

I did finally finish the palm log (my Tiki #20) Ben gave me to drag home a while back - I call it "Bathroom Tiki". I know, it's just another 'face tiki', but it's what my wife would allow me to put up in the BR.

I made a rubber stamp (or four) for a border around the BR, and carved out some molding for around the mirror, and stuck the #20 on the wall:



It aint much, but it was at least some carving

I went to San Francisco on business a month ago and visited
the Tonga Room in the Fairmont Hotel, and Trader Vics in Emeryville.

Also, I just got back from 2 weeks in Alaska (zero tiki - none - nada), but I did get to see some fantastic totem carves, which has inspired me to pick up the mallet again. Also, at the suggestion of TabooDan, I stopped by the Waldorf Hotel in Vancouver BC to see the Tahitian Room.

Thanks again, and I should be posting again real soon, hopefully with some examples of better-quality work.

Greg

Hey Greg
Nice to hear that you are still around these parts, and nice job with the
bathroom re-do. The carving is cool...even tho it's "just" a head

It's been a long time.

I'm going to post a few carvings I have done since my last post in 2008. Here's the first one - from a piece of bamboo Ben gave me. A Zombie lamp. Did this a couple years ago.

I'll post some other random stuff in a bit.

I've been missin you guys!

Hi "old timer," nice to see you popping in. Not many of us left from "Coon Tiki I"
anymore, I guess we might have been the middle group of the TC carving community. Nice
lamp, show some more stuff when you have time.
