Rodeo,

I have been super busy.
Recently, I just finished putting on a slate roof on my house. However, this doesn't mean that I haven't been carving. I am doing some carving and/ or sanding every day. One of these days when I get a moment I'll post some pics.
Thank you for thinking of me,
Will

Raffertiki and Polynesiac,

What's up guys? I hope life is treating you well. Sorry to be kind of a bonehead by being absent from this forum lately. I have kind of developed a love/hate relationship with it. I blame this on being a Gemini thus bipolar.

Raffer, I haven't seen any images of tikis on your post lately. What up? Whenever I see your post, it makes me stoked, then when I go check it out and no pics, makes we want to cry. No worries though, I always get to see your headhunter tiki with is one of my all time favorites.

Polynesiac,
Are you going to be home during Christmas?
I'll be down there and it would be cool to meet up with you and check out your work.
Also, is it cool if I tag along at Royal Palms, paddle around and drop in on everyone and then say I'm a buddy of yours?
Just kidding, I have better manners then most of the people out there these days.
I'll send you a PM.

Here are some freshies

Will,

Those poles are the coolest. Beautiful work. At first I just saw the one in the foreground then my eye traveled back to see the others. Just one is amazing. The whole bunch leaves me speechless. They fit the space so perfect. Pretty hefty logs themselves too. I like seeing the huge tikis you make.

Love the other new additions too... nice and clean!

Gman & Lake,

Thanks for your plugs.

The big fatty tikis were a chore to work with, they were around 1/2 a ton each and I had to use a backhoe and lots of leverage to move them. I don't know about you guys, but I have become kind of a bear from moving lots of logs. When it was time to deliver them, I somehow got them into a loaded down U-haul. The 12 hour, all night drive, to Phoenix was pretty interesting, but miraculously we made it.

Normally, I like to carve my large tikis deeper, but these had to be split in half and wrapped around a support pole.

These are the finished product of the ones I had in a separate post last year. Unfortunately, I couldn't find it.

Gman, where are the pictures of your project using the burl I sent you? I'm sure that it looks killer. you can post it under "other crafts".

Will

JP & Reid-O,


Thank you guys. I just love making huge tikis. Redwood seems to prefer deep large cuts as to small detailed carving. Perfect for chainsaw work. These tikis are currently living in a restaurant attached to the ValleyHo Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona. If you are ever there, you should check this hotel out. It is 5 star hotel completely remodeled 60's style. Supposedly, it is one of the top ten sexiest hotels in America.


Will

BIG FAT SEXY tikis! Only the best from Will! If I ever get to Arizona, I'm going looking for that hotel - just so I can get my picture taken with those guys.
