Mahaloz, Guys!

4WD & Conga: I wish I had kept up on the carving like you all. I might be making better quality stuff instead of staying the same and I wouldn't be so jealous!

BD: I used a 2" by 12" by 3' Redwood board for this last one. I picked it up in Cali after the last Tiki Oasis; that's how long it's been sitting around waiting to be carved!

LLT: If I could carve like you paint... wow. I'd be set for life!

Thanks Again!

Aloha Again!

Well, I just got my piece done for the current Tiki Art Swap, and realised there's a lot of stuff I did for this year's Oasis that I never posted. I didn't get to go to Oasis, so it's mostly all going to the shop to collect dust and not be sold like the rest of the stuff I have there.

Here's the Frankie's Menu inspired art for the swap:




It's a redwood plank and measures 18" by 12".

Here's a shelving unit I made specifically for all 8 of the mugs that you get a Frankie's. I haven't gotten the last two yet, so two classics had to fill in for the photos!



All three sides are carved!

Here's how it looks in the grand scheme of things in my Tiki Room:


This next one is about 4' tall. I didn't get any good shots of it before I took it to the shop. I'll have to take my tripod down there and photograph it properly.


I also made two "Jungle Rot" tikis that are down at the shop. I'll take a few shots and get 'em up here soon.

Mahaloz!

Mahaloz for the compliments!

Here's the other pictures of the other two that I made for Oasis that didn't get there. They are both part of my "Jungle Rot" series. That's about all Vegas Palm is good for.



This Squatty Guy sold today after I took this picture!

And finally, here's the big 4-footer all varnished up and hanging on the wall with all of his brothers and sisters; waiting for someone to come and give him a new home...



Mahaloz Plenny!

I just wanted to post a better shot of the big 4 footer with proper lighting at home since the lighting in the above photo at my shop isn't the perty-est!



He's up for sale on eBay right now. I hope he sells!

Lee, I love what you do, the styles you choose to create are good choices and go well with a particular flavor of vintage.
Yea "jungle Rot" series . very cool. I want one please.

Wow...
it's been over three YEARS since I've carved anything, and even longer since I've carved palm!
Today, I got the overwhelming urge to start wackin' away at a little two footer....

Feels good to be at it again.

Good for you Lee! I know that keeping my hands busy is good therapy for me and probably good for you too. No progress pics?
