Batten down the hatches Brad, for Hanna's a comin'!

I imagine you've been out in the surf lately, sure has been a good surf season for ya so far.

Hope she sends you some swell, and that's all!

Best of luck, hope the worst of it steers clear of you!

Thanx for checking, Dave. Nothing but nasty, bumpy stuff so far from Hannah. Supposed to get pretty nasty tonight. Hurricane party @ The Jungalero! Surf should clean up once Hannah moves NE from us.

....and I will finish this jumbo tiki before....the end of the year

Niiiice, AS. We've got a case of the slop-n-chop for now. Maybe tomorrow will be our day.

Thanks, G. Just don't send us Ike! Hope he stays away from you guys too.

Almost 2 months since last post on this sucka! Just been busy with job stuff and such. Not a reeeeal big update but I have gotten back on this project now for a few days to come....I'll see what I can get done.

Stood him up for the first time today and I can get a better view of my discrepancies in symmetry. I think his arm is too long for starters, and there are a few tweakages that need to take place in the eyes and mouth, a little rounding off of the head, make him look less 'squared', amongst other things, while I'm nit-picking. (it's got bug holes in it too). All-in-all, I'm so far happy with it.

Holy stuff!--I'm watching the the final outcome of the election as I type this---





M'halos!

Very nice Brad.

Its about time.

All surfed out from all those hurricane and low pressure systems tearing up the SE this year?

Looks like you have all been scoring big time this year.

That's a hell of a log folks. I saw it with my own eyes back in June. Made me tired just looking at it.

You've made some great progress on it.

You guys are cracking me up--much like this log has been cracking up from sitting in the garage near the dehumidifier for months now. I've only worked on it for about a week--or a few hours every other day or so for the past week now.

Yes LakeD--probably some decent surf has taken some time away from potential carve time, but you gotta keep you priorities straight, you know.

Did bust up a left rotator cuff (AGAIN) paddling out-or in-who knows when it happened but I've been surfing (or at least paddling with like an arm and a half for a month now). Still got good surf this week too--

Be back with another update in a few months... (hopefully sooner--I'm ready to move on to the next project!)

Take yer time, it's lookin great.
I Suggest you move him AWAY from the dehumid box and drape a damp towel over him or he will crack more.

Great carve, Time spent does not really matter as long as you get results like this.

WOW dude, I love your hat that is pretty cool.

About the tiki ? He is simply amazing, perfectly balanced and all, and all... A HUGE masterpiece to come. Thanks for sharing.

Benjamin.
