Wow! I just found this thread. What-a-place! Since when did Chicago become a suburb of Polynesia! I would LOVE to be sippin Mai Tai's in thar.
Excellent, excellent work.

Dang it! I think Chicago is just a tad off my Los Angeles-Florida Road Trip route. Does the I-20 go that far North? I might have to get a new map showing that it does.

Awesome place! I hope it stays open for many years to come.

Thanks for the views and comments!

Tiki #2 is in the rough stage now. He is about 7'. I call him the Mo'o. Based on song Ha'u Ha'u Eh... a song honoring the King and his "physique". The dancers do this song in the weekend show and its a great tune!

*** We are raffling this tiki for the American Heart Association with 100% of the raffle income to the charity. Tickets are $1. And we are running the raffle on-line. Will also be streaming a live video (might be slightly delayed) of the event. So you can view the live event from our website and buy raffle tickets via paypal. So please tune in... and its for a good cause.
If you are in the area and want to attend the event, we are giving away free mugs, free Wiki Wiki Tiki Tees, $4 Mai Tais, entertainment, and more. Should be a really fun time.

I'll post more details, but for now, the event is Aug 28 and the drawings will be at 8:30 central time.

So here are a few pics of the tiki in the rough. Thanks









I'll post more about the event and more pics as they come. Thanks!

Thanks for the replies. sorry about the pic. The tiki will be holding a lizard/gecko.... a mo'o. Its loosely based on a Hawiian tune that speaks of the gecko. Ha'u Ha'u Eeh. Fun song!

I got a little more done with the detail of the gecko and hopefully it will look like a lizard when done. Will get pics and post soon. Thanks!
Scott
PS swanky... we are following the follynesia and spreading the word over here in Chicago... best of luck! if you get flyers printed, send and we will post.

last reminder about the online tiki raffle. Again, all proceeds go to the American Heart Association and tickets are just $1. You can get your tickets on-line at www.thetikiterrace.com

I had a chisel accident a couple weeks ago (I'm still pretty new to and clumsey with chisels)... ended up with 8 stiches which slowed the progress. But have been at it lately. No major progress.... just working detailed chisel work. Need to finish base carvings, his back, carvings on head-piece, and misc. Then will sand/stain. Here is a pic with some progress and will keep posting.

Still hoping a carver wins!

Thanks

Thanks Benz! Hey, guess what... I have my first Benzart now! I got one of your Maoi head necklaces just yesterday and am wearing it with pride. Its awesome!

So the winner was a guy from Texas that bought tix on line. The winnner of the painting was a local woman that was at the event. I'll keep posting progress pics as I finish the tiki up!

Thanks again for the support everyone! About $1500 was raised for the American Heart Association! We will do it again in 3-4 months. Will keep you posted. Aloha!

Thanks Scott, I'm Really happy you got that one, It's the red fezzed Moai right?
Your tiki really is Excellent, I Love the deep detail and the way you undercut the lower jaw and set in the eyes and overall you really took the detail to the limit, Nice going!
