This thread barely scratches the surface of the work I've done in the last 11 years. Pieces that number in the hundreds. Some photos are lost, some of the work I don't feel is up to par to post anymore. It was around the time I started this second thread that I felt like I was doing the work I was most proud of posting

Enjoy!



Inspired by the Chicago Trader Vic's...
In between tiki work I've been trying to finish up this pole for myself based on the two that used to stand guard outside the Palmer House Vic's.
With any luck I'll see them again with a Mai Tai in hand.

Its hard to get all three in there and be the same size and even harder for them to have all the same look, nice.

Lake,

Looking good so far, can't wait to see the finished product. Hey I'll be in town for a conference in late March. Maybe we can meet up for a maitai at HC's?

Matt

p.s. Did you hear the news that the Dallas Vic's is back on again and scheduled to re-open in August.

Lake,

Your tiki pole is awesome. You can't have actually gotten that good, can you? Are you sure you didn't nab it at the demolition of some ancient tiki bar?

LakeSurfer,

It must be great having a house full epic tikis. I find that I can spend hours staring at tikis when there are in the house, I become a tiki zombie . Are the Great Lakes supplying you with any surf these days, or is it frozen stiff? Some fun waves at the Hook in Santa Cruz this morning even though I was getting pelted with rain and wind.

Will

Nope, no nabbing... this baby's all me.
I guess after 350 tikis you start to get good at this here whitling thing
Thanks Sabu... I can't wait to show this one finally finished, but he goes to the back of the line again as I start on
a new order for a bar.
