Bowana... Thanks much sir!

My color choices are a lot different from Grog's for sure!

Maddogmike... Wide grain for sure, but it is kiln dried so no cracking or splitting to worry about right now.

Thanks for the kind compliment!

BigT... Thank you kindly for the compliment! Much appreciated!!!

Lori, many thanks for your compliment!


Still painting this piece... Nearing completion but my attention has been diverted to a very large job I'm trying to get done by next week.

Hope to have this mask wrapped up before I head out to the International Tiki Market Place!

A little press on one of the many bars I do work for... This one is closest to my heart... And home.

Although I live in California (near several top flight Tiki bars) I've been lucky enough to get to the Foundation Tiki Bar twice in the last three years. The drinks are fine and the décor is GREAT! I always go whenever I'm in the area. From the outside it is a quintessential Milwaukee corner tavern but upon entering you are instantly transported to the wondrous and mysterious south seas. Your only consolation upon leaving is the knowledge that someday you will return.

Jeff, thanks for the kind compliment!
Don't get by these parts that often anymore, but I enjoy checking out your posts and projects!
Keep the wood chips flying!

TropicDrinkBoy, glad you have been able to pay a few visits to Foundation
It is a hidden jem! It's been a real pleasure to help create the bar into what it is today.

Since tikimecula is posting log porn, I thought I'd post some of my own...



Scored some Yellow Pine and some Red Cedar today. This should tide me over this fall.


Mess and hang10... Thanks guys... Appreciate the kind compliments!
