My Barney west came from Long Island NY. It was in a backyard. The people I bought it from had the house for 26 years and it was there when they got the house. These are pictures of it in my yard

Barney West working on one of his tikis. From the United Air Lines "Mainlander" in-flight magazine, Sept 1972. Part of an article on things to do in Sausalito.

Ran across these Barney West articles in the archives...


The Tuscaloosa News June 27, 1957




The Telegraph-Herald September 27, 1960









And here is an article that seems a duplicate without photo of Bigbrotiki's post on page 2 of this thread, included here for ease in reading...

The Portsmouth Times December 3, 1965






Wonder if the Mai-Kai is considering a claim on Barney's 100-year guarantee? The giant "Barney" that collapsed in the Mai-Kai gardens on June 9, 2009 had survived the corrosive Florida environment, including hurricanes and a multitude of wood-eating organisms, for more than 50 years... quite a demonstration of durability! Likely there is a Florida exclusion in the warranty fine print...

Have been asked to help refurbish the totem pole in Weed, Ca at a grocery store (previously Safeway) and find that it was carved by Barney West. It has his carved name on the back - "Barney West, Sausalito, Calif".
Thought you readers might enjoy a look at it.
Was interested in the '100 year warranty' Barney stated in his redwood carvings. I think this one may make the 100 year mark, with some care.

I would like to update some information on the Totem pole. New info has come to light. This totem was created by Barney West from Redondo Beach, Ca in 1962. He only made two, one was at Lake Tahoe in 1963 at a height of 22'. The second was the tallest Barney ever created. This one is in Weed,Ca at a height of 32'. He called them Tiki Totems because all Barney made was Tikis from the South Pacific. The one in Lake Tahoe is gone due to the elements. The one in Weed will be replaced with a REAL Northwestern Totem Pole. Also, there is no Totem like it at the end of the Alcan highway. Safeway bought both from Barney and had nothing to do with the towns they (were)(are) in. This Tiki Totem is also for sale.

Thought I'd share this photo I just picked up - it's an original news photo (referenced earlier in this thread). Love the stilts, and the ship's ladder on the right:

Wonder where that ever ended up - that baby was too big to have rotted away. Aren't there some Ililkai oldtimers around to ask?
