This frame has been sitting on my rack waiting to be carved for a number of years now...

Its finally done. This Heather Watts print was purchased many Tiki Oasis ago.. the matting was done by the talented Frame Fetish.

Frame by Monkeyman
The wood is a solid mahogany
The tikis out front are a separate piece of wood on each side
the custom frame was cut with a side channel so that the seagrass braid would fit flush and be super custom





Mai Tai.. your frame is next..... sorry for the wait buddy.

Holy Kamapua'a!
That is sooooooooooo freaking cool. The skulls in the waves are awesome. I love this whole "Elaborate custom carved frame" thing thats going on in the low brow art scene. I can only hope and pray some day someone puts one of my pieces in such a beautiful and elaborate frame.

Hi Derek, everything you make has such amazing attention to detail and polish and sets the bar for quality. Seriously.
I have 5 of your album frames and they are among my favorite things to decorate Hula Sue's with when it's all done. They are incredible.
Thanks for inspiring,
John

Thanks Kirby, TikiShark and Pupu.

I have another 3 frames on my rack waiting to be carved. My goal is to knock them all out in the next month or two.

I usually like to add more color into my frames but the bright reds of the mat seemed to be more compatible with darker muted stain.
