Hello Tiki Central!

Awesome to see so much killer work going on here!

Been a while since I posted anything I know, but I happen to have picked up a nice little project doing some tikis for a new restaurant coming to my home town. "Da Big Kahuna" will be just across the street from the pier I surfed growing up.

The owner has commissioned 4 carvings from me, one around 5' and 3 x 8 footers. He wants all more traditional styled pieces, which is a nice change from the typical toothy grin stuff I get requests for here.

Some progress shots:






Lots of sanding and chisel work to go but coming along!

Only about 2 weeks till opening, so got I'd better get back to it

Thanks for looking and KEEP CARVING!
