thanks Erik. I'm definitely enjoying the fish stuff.

...and here's the 1960 Columbia I picked up today!

I absolutely love this little bike.

Flipped bars, fake aftermarket pipes with a little california license tag, and home-made wooden pedals! It's like some kid's bike from the 60's that was dropped in a time capsule...and the wood pedals? how cool is that? it's like the kid & his dad made 'em out in the garage when the originals broke!







So, I have to get back on top of things tomorrow. I need to make some stuff!

yeah Mick, I've been findin' em bro!

I may be trading for some tiki stuff for some old frames later this week....


So yeah, 2011 is finally over. It was a weird year. The first 9 months of which kinda sucked, and the last 3 months were pretty awesome. I kinda got lazy there at the end & slacked off for a couple of weeks, but it's January 2nd & I need to get back on it.

I was fortunate enough to spend a little time with Benz & Will last week, and came away from the whole thing stoked and ready to go to work, and wanting to "get better" at what I do.

So this week I'm getting the ball rolling on my website, pricing t-shirts & stickers. I also have appointments with some of the local restaurants. But most importantly, settling back into making stuff (BETTER stuff).

I am really stoked about this year's possibilities.

Well, I met with the GM of a local waterfront restaurant today and it went really well. Had my little flip-book of my stuff & he liked all of it. There may be a real opportunity there for me to do something neat. They have spent A LOT of money creating a tiki bar, but it's a big blank canvas and I think I could really bring a lot of flavor to the table. He wants proposals.

And I went to a local Tahitian-themed resort/hotel and they have a HUGE dead date palm in the side at the entrance to the parking lot...in addition to this, one of my ex's works there and is tight with the owner. I had lunch with her today and she's working the inside track for me. That could seriously happen.

And I have some commissions to work on too which is cool.

I'll start making some stuff tomorrow, so hopefully I'l start posting some pics again.

Great news!! Here's to a prosperous 2012 for you!

I lived in Palm Harbor for a few years and was quite active in the Tampa Bay Parrot Head Club. They have over 600 members and dig the tiki theme .... and they have money to spend! Some of them ask about buying my tikis but the cost to ship from Cali is a show-stopper... I might just send them your way if they show any more interest ...

yeah man, give 'em the word. I'm their guy.

If they have a meeting or something I'll go down there & introduce myself. I'd love to be "the guy" they called for tikis stuff.


So anyway, back to work. This one's gonna be a snook. I'm gonna start a few tikis too.

Ok, the snook is done. For those of you who live in Florida, you probably know what a snook is. For those of you who do not live in Florida, it's a rather elusive saltwater fish that is extremely desirable because ( a.) they're very tasty, and ( b.) they're not the easiest fish to catch. They're a very popular inshore-type game fish.

This is another piece for Wimauma Restaurant.

Anyway, tomorrow I'm getting some tikis going.

thanks Tom.

Yeah, the girl who owns the Restaurant that has the redfish says there has been a lot of interest and the cards I left there are all gone, so that's good news. I guess I'm going to have to complete the "inshore slam" & make a trout now....

Anyway, lots to do today.

today's inspiration....

I saw this big piece of cedar this morning and decided that I need to turn it into a manatee (more Florida-specific marine life).

Anyway, it's a little under 4 ft high & aboiut 16 inches thick.

I'm waiting for someone to speak up and say "quit posting your stupid bikes and fish and make some tikis!!!"....

I promise that I will get back on them (hopefully later today).....

My daughter just moved to Florida and sent back pictures of a manatee and I wondered why the carvers weren't incorporating them into their designs. Can't wait to see the result pjc5150.

They do, and they are all over. Just not on the Tiki forum. This one is right outside my office (Southport Raw Bar in FtLauderdale), carved in a dead Mahogany.
