Looking good. Love the large head tapper. The big logs are fun because you have to
manhandle them i think. Have you put any tikis in the ground? or do you leave them
out?

hey everyone
just got back from 3 weeks vacation in san diego(being the only government paid az tiki carver has
it perks!!)and had to get back to the problem of getting my big tiki off the ground(its about 500lbs)
so i solicited help from tc and it always comes back to"get a bunch of beer,get 5 people and stand it up"
well gettting the beer is the easy part,5 people is everyone for 2 miles.so as i was siting around thinking,
(drinking margaritas)

i figured out my patent pending(dont tell anyone!)margarita powered tiki lifting devise- model 34xr4445g)!!!!
(now available at better rxalls nationwide)
(margaritas not included)

i had this pile of pavers and 2 2x4s laying around,and the tiki rolls easy
so i put pavers under 1 end ,rolled it to that end added pavers to the other end
it works great,if you can lift 1 paver you can do this,the hardest part was getting the
pavers to the tiki,thats where the margaritas come in










and before you can drink a picture of margaritas its up!!
(i"m the one on the left)

also made alittle head in sd to give to my friend bernardo i stayed with

seeks
the only one i have exposed fully is my ist big one



i put it up on pavers and hammered 3 flat form stakes into the ground to support it
its been in the sun almost 2 yrs
i put 3 coats of teak oil on it and it dried like a varnish(which is what i was afraid of)
so now its starting to peel alittle ,but it makes it look old,like having a crack in it
which i was so afraid of at 1st but now i like

i think i might try some of your secret goop on this guy
how long has your guy been out with it and what do you think

Damn, I've used that same method to lift big tikis, but I never thought to get a patent!!! Yours is better anyway. I used cinderblocks, your pavers make it much more adjustable.

So what happened to a chop at your vacation house? I was waiting...

Log too heavy to lift - Check!
Pavers - Check!
2x4 wood - Check!
Margarita - Substitute Rum cocktails - Check!

Now where the hell did I leave my "motivation"? Oh yeah - I keep leaving that under the rum bottle.

Where there is a will there is a way. Love it. Sucker looks GREAT!
I have been cheating I have been doing tar coats every year.
From what i have experienced thus far its simple, fast and looks good (the tar mix)
No sanding just get a crapy shirt on and slap it on.
We have different climates for sure, but the tar works for rain and sun.

Looked like something from Easter Island! A land void of trees, but you'll get that damn tiki up!
