Excellent stuff Tom-Tom, it is great fun to watch your skills blossom and to see your tikis get so GOOD! Keep up the great work.

Tiki Thomas, I got your Lava Maori Moai as a gift for a friend. I'm glad I wasn't your only sale. I feel like the Emperor from Stars Wars... almost have my friend (hard core metal freak) turned to the Dark Side. He's planning on turning his garage/pool room into a tiki haven. I thought LMM would be a nice constant reminder to start that project instead of always talking about it. Thanks, I know he's gonna dig it!

Hey Tom-Tom, that "Lava Maori Moai" is great work, and the TFink is cool.

Could you please take a super-close-up shot of those new shoes of yours and post 'em here? (You guys'll see what I mean.)

Thanx.

Thomas, the reason I left a nice condo with granite counters, (gardeners and a pool) and bought a fixer-upper house, is so that I could carve. The HOA said NO WAY, man. You can always work on stuff over here, if you can make it up. I'm home during the day and am around by 10a. Not being able to carve really sets you back, as far as your progression goes.

thanks I appreciate the offer, man. but with my classes schedule for this semester, goin back and forth from sdsu to lemon grove isnt in the books for me. smaller stuff i can carve without leaving my room, or going far is what im aiming for. the good thing though is clint beachwoods station is pretty close to me,so i get my dosage of surf bands every week. maybe he'll let me carve in front of his station, hmm...

LOVE those FREAKIN' SHOES MAN!!!!!!

You folks have to see 'em up close, they're 60's hipster Tiki designs mixed with mod art and people with really long necks. They're the coolest shoes ever. I worship those shoes.

They have sole.
