nice, deep, smooth carves. Nice to see your work again, my friend. I like the addition of the "good luck" horseshoe.

Can't wait to see what else you got for us!


edit - okay, I'm looking at your carving again and I notice a hanging table?!?!? to the left of the tiki it's a ship's block attached to a round table, but it has no legs! maybe it's the angle of the shot that I can't see what's supporting it, but is it hanging from the corner of your tiki bar? From rope? or from taught cable? does it swing? Sorry about the questions, but I'm totally intrigued!

it's a swinger baaby! It's hanging by rope. A friend of mine was moving and asked if I wanted it. I was all over it.

Crap!

Now I'm going to have to revise my chapter I had about you in my new book:

Where Are They Now?: The Early Artists of TC

Well, I guess I'll move on to TikiG's chapter now...

Buzzy Out!

I'm currently working on a Marqueses inspired tiki.
It's gonna be a big one. This log is over 9ft and weighs about 400 lbs

I really like the Electric planer compared to the draw knife, whew! Thanks Buzz!

I don't usually draw on the log first, but it's so big, I need some guide lines.


Just started my first cut and I killed my saw!!


Curious bystander does push ups while I carve.

I got a brand spanking new saw!!!






I'm gonna keep this guy G rated, he'll have a package like a GI Joe figure, but no woodpecker! Haha



Deadline is Sunday. I have to install this dude before the Nascar Party at my client's house. It's crunch time tomorrow.


I'll post more pics tomorrow. Thanks for looking!
