Thanks RIOTURBAN. Thanks for asking Cy. I am still alive and well. I have been slowed down by the little poobahs. I have a tiki I carved (> 5 foot) now that school is out I will find the time to post the pictures. I have been working on a tiki themed backyard shed. This has been going on since April. I get a few hours here and there so it has been slow going. I have to get the camerea fired up and going.

So ….it has been awhile. I have been really running around a lot playing mister mom with the kids as my wife is putting in some long hours. I have not had much time to check in let alone do much carving. My in laws parents got hammered by the hurricane in November. They are in their 90’s. My father in law and I spent a great deal of time putting their house back in living condition. They had three feet of water. Needless to say the combination of things has left me with little time to carve.

The hurricane did give me an idea. I had a kid’s fort in my yard. They didn’t use it much. In fact I was trying to store chairs and other stuff in it before the hurricane arrived in the fall. They stuff stayed there all winter. In the spring I decided to tear it down and put a shed/ tiki bar in its place. The plan is to make it a sitting area in the summer and then store deck items, tikis, etc, in the winter.

Here is what I have so far…


The old fort (you can barely see it on the left)…





Here is the new fort…. not yet complete







I am currently making the moldings to go up top…






Eventually I would like to mimic the Papua tiki design found at the Polynesian hotel in the peak. Create some double doors and hopefully be ready to go.
