Chiki-thanks. There was this local artwork competition for elementary kids (I teach 4th). This year's theme was "Aloha Art". I decided it was finally my chance to integrate TIKI into the class. I'm telling you this because I brought in one of your flyers as a possible image to copy. After reading the "homage or rip off" thread, I just want to forewarn you that if you happen upon an art show in Burbank, CA and you see an Ivory soap bar carved just like your dark wood moai...I'm guilty. hahahaha. The kids loved your work (more than mine! sniff sniff).
Gecko-My neighbors like walking by and seeing the progress. One guy is married to a Hawaiian girl. He is my biggest fan. I gave him that big tiki that was laying on the concrete,(carving post) complete with a carving lesson on its headress. I don't use power tools, so people just trip on the technique. My girl does think its funny. She's tried to make one, but got tired too fast.

G , I was telling my wife today that we are gonna have a fun summer this year. I think it would be cool if we (all carvers that carve for$) meet one day and get to know each other. Maybe at OA or Bosko's ranch. Have Leroy,Bob,Sven there and just "talk story" and listen to our trailblazing carvers talk shop or ??? Never have all carvers been assembled and documented(photo and article) at one time, so this would be cool. I'm not trying to give myself any place of importance by suggesting this. Just think this should happen before it's too late. Oh and tikiFille, no sweat girl, go for it! Yes, we are coming over for the 1st annual tiki bike ride to Gene's museum.

If this "carvers meeting" goes down, I'de like to see you's (all at once)carve a 12'tr! Get it on vedio/dvd (money goes into a carvers trust for the next event)to sell. Then e-bay the 12'ter and donate the funds to some charity for "injured craftsman", or put it back into the trust in case anything happens to any of you's (tikigod forbid!). This would be history man! Like a union for the carvers!

BK-Thanks for asking the price, but it's predestined (a fate thing, don't ya know). Excuse my cluelessness, but what does PM mean? I hope it's not like "lol" which I just recently learned. Oh the public ignominy....

I'll butt in here, PM means private message.
You go girl.
And BK, anything happening with that portable bar idea? I might like to have a bar that can be assembled and disassembled fairly easily but needs to be strong. Has to withstand some weathering from say April to October out here in Cal if for nigh ayy. Up to 105 degrees at times in summer. Something I could fold flat and store over the winter months.

Auwie! wot a great idea Chiki! If da guys in da pass could have done sumting li'dat HO! I would have loved to see da pic of all of them or read da article or look at da Tiki or wateva dem guys would have done. If this eva happens, you let me know da date and i gon be there.

If it happens it will be a great piece of history to be in about 40+ years from now when we no longer have the strength to pickup da good ol' hamma and chizle....thats kind of heart breaking to even think that right now. I couldn't imagine not being able to carve anymore! Leroy Schmaltz is for sure the Michael Jordan of this Tiki culture and I know why he keeps going, the LOVE of the chizle and hamma. I know it's going to be hard for him when he finally retires. I just pray I'm blessed with all da years to carve as Mr.Schmaltz was.

Boobam Ben has a great point to with the charity. I was givin a gift and I don't mind at all giving back. It can be for wateva charity or for something special for the collectors who buy our stuff etc.. I'll be home with my parents in June, so let me know braddahs.

Aloha
