hey thanks guys.

super stoked to meet up with Will & Tom tomorrow, and my first visit to Mecca (the Mai Kai), and then a little tutoring from the masta (Benz)....

this has been a super great trip...

had a great sunday hangin' with my Vero boys Joe Cav & Billy Stew....

and here's the HUGE MONSTER FISH I slayed at Sebastian Inlet with Joe. I am such a nerd...



and I couldn't split without hookin' Joe up with a tiki, so I busted this one out Sunday afternoon. Not bad for 4 1/2 hours of work! Here's Joe with his fiance Lynn & their new tiki. It was a little too wet & fresh for the torch & stain, so he's gonna handle that part himself here in another week or so....

Took pjc5150 to the Mai Kai for his first visit. Wednesday night and the place was jumpin. My guess would have been 80% female patrons. None of that mattered as the allure of the MaiKai kept his attention (and I'm married). Took Jeff on a tour, he was a little overwhelmed, but a lot sank in. Introduced him to Kern and got a quick tour of the back. We have been getting rain everyday for the past few weeks so the gardens are beatifully lush. I didn't have much time, so a couple of drinks and we headed back to Will's for few beers and some bullsh*t. Great evening - I live so close and don't go there enough. Thanks for the motivation!

It was cool to finally meet you and may see you again soon. Remember the mission.

Tom, thank you so much brother.

The last 24 hours has been unreal...You & Will rock.

And wow, if any of you ever want to get instantly humbled & realize that everything you've made so far is mediocre at best, just go to Will's house & have a look around...holy crap...

My head is spinning....

If carving were outlawed, only outlaws would carve.


Carve on, brada.

Thanks Brudda...

I have a lot of pics to post when I get home.

And I have given Will Carve a new nickname....

"THE LIZARD KING".....(yeah, I'm a big DOORS fan....I'll explain later...lol).

Wow, what a spectacular week I've had. Between hangin' with my Vero boys Joe Cav & Billy Stew, finally meeting Tom in person, staying at Will's, visiting the Mai Kai, spending a little more time with Benz, my first visit to the Mai Kai, hanging out with my awesome grandfather....wow....my head is seriously spinning from all of it. I just want to go home, hug my dog, and GET ON SOME TIKIS!!!!

Mahalo to all the peeps mentioned above that made this week beyond description.

I'm looking for a log - so pass it on. Something really big - not palm! Has to be close enough that it can be trailered it back to SFL. Central FL has more old growth trees than SFL. If you hear of anything please let me know.

I feel that way just looking at his thread. If I went to his house, I may end up turning in my chisels!

yeah Tom...the mission is clear...I'm on it...

some things became clear over the last few days...

( 1.) Benzart Davis is STILL the man....
( 2.) the Mai Kai rules....
( 3.) the Florida tiki-carving brotherhood is STRONG...
( 4.) wild reptiles CAN be domesticated...
( 5.) Dos Equis "most interesting man in the world" ain't got shit on Will Anders...

and here's a few random pics...

Mai Kai...









the lair of the lizard king....

yeah man, it was an epic week for sure.

The 24 hours I spent down in Ft Lauderdale just had my head spinning. I probably just about talked poor Tom's ear off at the Mai Kai...

So now I have this big tiki event here tomorrow night. Basically they're kinda trying to get their own little Hukilau going over here on this coast. This is the 2nd one they've thrown. So I'm haulin' the angry Hawaiians out there with me. So I need to get to work here and at least get the Kanaloa close to finished...

whipped out this moai for tonight's event. Giving this one away.



and I threw a few coats of golden pecan on the big kanaloa. I'll probably pull him back out for more details eventually, but for now this will have to do.
