I was doing my normal rush-in / rush-out routine, but yeah, next time we'll paddle out & bust a few together...

badda BING!

So yeah, I've tried getting some tree guys excited in the past about giving me stuff, and they're always kinda "yeah, sure, we'll call you"...and then never called.

So last time some tree guys came through I spoke to them and said "hey, here's the deal: you need to start calling when you cut down sable & coconut palms....wanna know why?" to which they obviously replied "why?" and I said "because I'm a tiki artist. And you know this 'tree service' thing you guys do for money? Well, whenever I run out of palms to make tikis with, I go out and find people with dead palms and offer to cut them down for free. And you know what else? I get lots of referrals from their friends and family with dead trees. So if I have to go out and be the 'free tree service guy' I will, but let's face it, I would rather NOT be in the free tree service business. I'm sure you'd prefer that as well. Plus, it costs you money to dispose of it...so you're saving money by giving it to me."

He agreed, and now I have more sable palm than I know what to do with (not really...lol).

Also, I have recently fallen in love with Eucalyptus. There's a bar here called "FIRE" and the bar & surrounding area is done in eucalyptus, and it is GORGEOUS....just stunning...I asked my new tree guy if he ever gets any eucalyptus, and he was like "oh yeah, all the time...you want big huge logs or smaller ones???".....I want 'em ALL bro, I want 'em all...lol...so yeah, looking forward to getting my hands on some of it...

lol...nah, I'm working on this...

a commissioned piece for the same lady who commissioned the scooter moai.

she asked for a tiki holding a peace sign, and I suggested we do a tiki making little peace signs with his hands to make it a little less generic. She's all about the big happy tikis...

and since I moved my operation to the back yard and we changed the bulbs in the outdoor light fixtures it's plenty lit up so I can work at night!
