Once again playing catch up! Here's all the junk I made so far this year...

Jan. It snowed here just enough to scoop up some snow and make a, wait for it.... Snowai !!



Feb. Started garden cleanup. What else do you do with a Sago Palm you cut down? Tiki practice! Man this stuff carves easy. Too bad it eventually shrivels away to nothing. Send me all your sago palms, Im gonna start a new line of Temporary Tikis!!




March. Bamboo On the Bayou 2017 got delayed to March 2018. So started getting ready. Did a new bunch of Bouai's.




A couple of random necklaces that I never finished...



Took some fish cutouts that I did last year and mounted/framed them. The cloth backings are made from old hawaiian shirts.




Made a new mask from half a pine log.





Made another bactch of resin necklaces:




My booth at Bamboo On the Bayou #2...




April. Made this tiki bob necklace out of a piece of Plumeria branch. We lost the whole plumeria tree in the freeze this winter.




May: finished this commission for Lei Low bar in Houston.




Here is the panel being installed this week:



Then I started playing around with this florist foam stuff from Hobby Lobby. It's fairly challenging to keep it from disintegrating while carving it!



June. Started this square ku based on the litte foam guy.



Found a new use for wine corks...



Started a muddler:




There's never enough time to do all the carving you want to do, is there?

Thanks all. Still haven't finished those last couple of things, but did get to take a short road trip for a few days and do some tiki treasure hunting!
