Hi polynesiac,

Your floats are very cool looking and you seem to have overcome all the issues I have read regarding the cutting... well done. I also love the tiki drum player, very sweet

Aloha and thanks for compliments!

Paipo - thanks bro! that means a lot coming from such a fine artist as yourself. I'd love to go full time, but I'd be worried that it wouldn't be a stress relief anymore. Certainly something to think about, and maybe those really nice and patient people who waiting for a carving would get theirs sooner if I were full time! Got some more pendants coming out of the mold shortly...

Ben - It's always great to hear from you. thanks for the praise on the lamp. This is one of those pieces that I spend way to long on, but I'm glad with how it turned out. It's carved out of redwood and I started it before the hookknife demo (!), so it's all dremel, but I made sure to get the lines as crisp as possible. The rosewood I was going to use the hookknife with, but I could barely scratch the surface of the wood, so I just switched back over to the dremel and had at it. I think I need to get some softer wood for the hook knife. Ben, I hear that place in whittier has been around a while....

Queen K - thank you. I've found a method that works for me and I'm glad that I can produce these for people. That tiki bongo player was a version I did of one of tikibiablo's (www.tikidiablo.com) tikis that resides at the rincon room.

Aloha!

Aloha!

I've been making some tiki ornament/pendants:



These were oringally carved in rosewood, but these are the molded, hand cast, hand painted off spring. I try and make a different ornament every year to accompany my gifts. These are not for sale, but there may be some left over. I'll post over in Marketplace if there are.

Here's a better view of Kaiku all finished:



He was shipped off to dallas yesterday.

and I'm cross posting this image taken by humuhumu ( from the hulas santa cruz thread:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=22081&forum=2&start=0&16 )



This is a picture of some of my floats up and running at Hula's in Santa Cruz. I drove up a bunch of these for citibeach and he really did a nice job positioning them and decorating his new tiki bar. (WHen I drive them up, it gave me an excuse to cruz over to the FI parking lot sale, catch up with all the cool nor cal tiki peeps AND see the great white at Monterey!!!)

More later!

I'm still interested in a trade for one of dem globes. I'll start working on something and see what you think.(I had intended to do a whole bunch of "showing off your balls" jokes but thought better of it).
The pendants are cool, nice solid looking style.
Cheers.

Aloha amigos!

I finally finished up the tiki I started WAY back at the Oki, Oki in July of 2006. I tell ya, I think I'm finally getting the hang of carving fast. He's called "Tiki Polyboskiablo" because both Danny and bosko influenced the design (and chopped a bit on him too). I was going to put a wee, fat belly on him, but danny suggested a skull instead. Being one to never follow peer pressure or suggestions, I carved a skull in a tiki tony kinda influenced way. (I already ripped off bosko and danny in the design, so why not add a little tiki tony too?). He stands a little over three feet tall:






A close up of the skull - I like how the painting turned out.

The kon tiki pirate I did a while ago got cast and painted for TO 6 ( a limited run of 10), but I decided to try some different colors on the pendants, so I re cast some and painted them up:

Kon Tiki Pirate:





Big nose tiki (no real name for this wee fella):



And finally here's a picture for the increadibly patient f-balls. coming soon!!! (not quite may, but soon!)



Thanks for looking!

Who could not like it? All those influences in there. Throw a little Crazy Al in the mix and Kirby would have been all about it
