I made this today, dont really like my design. So the first one is free to the first person who posts a reply and likes this thing can have it without the mugs I know the mugs suck I never have good luck at the thrift stores. Shipping is even free in the us. If no one replys to this well I will know it was a bad idea.

Hi Ken,

I for one think it's excellent and am glad you tiki carvers are coming up with fresh ideas. After photographing ChikiTiki's Tiki "Sewing-basket" last week, seeing Gecko's "Mug Shrine" and now seeing your mug-holder, I'm encouraged and anxious to see what you guys come up with next.

I personally like the design. But then again, I'm a fan of Witco's long, attenuated tiki faces. I'd encourage you to work on it until you come up with a design that you're happy with. I think a set of Westwood mugs would look great hanging from this one, and it would give a bartender easy access to them. I think other mug collectors would go for it. And I'd be happy to buy or trade for it and pay for shipping. Honest.

Sabu

Boo! I thought I'd be the first. But I'd like to offer my opinion as a humble Witco collector. I love the style but think small shelves may go over better to the tiki mug collectors on ebay and here, as most mugs don't have handles. Also a skinny shelf unit would work well between art (like velvet paintings) on our crowded walls as well as adding depth to an art display.
I especially LOVE the guy on the bottom with his tongue out. Beautiful work, Laney

I wish I had been first! I really like it and we have lots of handled mugs that would love a new home (they usually get pushed to the back of a shelf). Oh well, that's just my luck. I think you do great work though and always love seeing it!

Successful or not, with this you are in the tradition of Bill's "no apology for bad taste/I'll try everything once" spirit that makes Witco stuff so great. He always had a sense of humor about his own creations, that's what comes through.

Cool idea Keigs! I am really excited that "us" tiki carvers are doing new stuff. Hopefully we will grow as artists and business people by introducing new things. So we benefit from the challenge and the collector's benefit with cool pieces. Nothing wrong with that!

Lenay and Waikiki Thanks for the input and compliments. I have antoher one in the works I think it will be a little more mug friendly. I finaly found some big grained swamp cedar and think I have almost got the Witco finish down with a few tips from Bill of course. Bigbro thanks for the encourgement hope to meet you some time in the future and buy your new book when it comes out. Chikitiki thanks I have a lot of ideas but the builder in me has not figured out how to work with the carver yet.

Here is the new improved model. This one is not free. It took forever to build and I am still picking slivers out of my hands. Probably sell it on ebay or something.

Man, that is nice!...I have been wrecking my brains on how to include some of your work in my book. I am already doing a chapter on Bosko, and you deserve a couple of pages for sure, but my dilemma is:

A.) I want to stay consistent with the "Studio lighting" look of all the newly photographed objects

B.) You are selling your best pieces, and I can't photograph them anymore (which is off course what you should do)

...so that leaves us only
C.) I trust you kept a photographic record of all that you have carved so far (digital only?), so I will have to work with that material and see how it would fit in the art direction of the book.

Anyway, keep up the good work, the book is still miles away, but keep fotos of all the stuff...

I agree, this one is great! Really nice work. You're right twowheelin.....a mirror would be great behind that!

I love the mug shelf!

Sounds like bigbrotiki needs a little help -- surely with all the creative people on this list there MUST be a photographer with a healthy tiki obsession in the Seattle (?) area who could light and photograph Ken's work for the book!

Anyone?

Thanks you guys and gals. A mirror is a good Idea but it would probably break during shipping. I think those UPS guys just throw the boxes off the trucks.
Bigbro- I do have a ton of pictures but they are all digital. I also have a roll of slide film I have not developed. I dont know if there would be any pictures worth putting in your book though. I am definetly not a photographer. I have sold most of my creations to people in California some of them TC members so you may be able to photograph a totem that is in the area. I will try to take some good slide film pictures of the shelf and future pieces. Just tell me when you need them and I can send them your way.
