Hello tc, I made this shelf 2 weeks ago, then I saw keigs amazing shelves today and I feel
like a copy cat, I think we had immaculate similtaneous conceptions of tiki, or
something. Well, I was definitelly inspired by his father-in-law Bill. Keep up the
awesome work keigs!
Well, I was wondering if anyone wants to
stick it to ebay and buy this shelf from me now! You can think of it as supporting a
starving college tiki art student! (not actually starving, more like hungry). The wood is from an old palm tree planter that I found at a palm tree
farm overlooking the ocean in Ventura. The two tikis are Tangaroa and Hiva. After seeing
Gecko's gnarly carvings of Tangaroa, I just had to give it a try. Gecko, your stuff is a
sweeeet.
The shelf holds approximatelly 9 large mugs. The bamboo pitched roof and tiki torches can
be put on permanetally in any combo for buyer.
If no offers by Wed. my pops is going to post it on evil ebay.

$150 or best offer? Just email me with any
questions and you can pay by paypal with my pops account and have it hanging in your
place by next weekend!

Does this shelf suck? Am I excommunicated from other TCers, I feel like the red headed step child (no offence to any). I would appreciate any comments, the worse the better. Heres a link to the ebay page of the shelf.

TikiTony~

Most local TC'ers here in or near LA & Orange County, are either going to Mondo Tiki, Viva Las Vegas, Tahoe, Reno, Palm Springs, or just out with the family. In addition to that, just Spring Break itself has others spending money on the family by entertaining the kids/family while off of school. I believe possibly the marketing of this item just has the wrong timing for some people.

Other than that, you might want to change the title to "Witco Inspired" instead of Witco.

Try placing the shelf against a contrasting color, rather than a white or beige wall, so that it doesn't give the shelf a washed-out look.

Place some various size mugs on the shelf, so that the potential buyer can get a visual comparison to the actual size of the shelf.

...or just get a bikini clad cutie to pose with the shelf.

Just my 2 coconuts worth.

Braddah Tony, dats a nice shelf bro. I Think like SCD sed, timing is off. I know I'm tryin to save my money for my trips coming in 2 months. Peopo are saving da money to hit "da show" "Mondo" "hukilau" etc etc...
THEN, the rush will come.

Summer is just around da corner bro, peeps will come out of da cold to buy all kine tiki stuff! so If you don't sell it now you will in 2 to 3 months! so, be prepared for da demand.

I see u used Tangaroa as one of the post to hold up the shelf, nice.
Aloha

Well I like it! (My wife would probably kill me if I brought it home--she hasn't yet developed that taste for all things tiki, and cringes everytime the mailman drops a new box on our porch---but I definitely like it.) I would echo the above comments----I think there are alot of tiki events this week distracting the true believers, as well as the arrival of spring (finally!) pulling people away from their computers. Even if you don't get the price you'd like for this, I'm guessing you had alot of fun making it, and I would encourage you to keep at it.

tHanks Gecko and SufferingB.
Its hard at first when you put your stuff out there and there's no response, Gecko, I am truly inspired by your work. You seem to blend traditional with 'your style' so well that your stuff is untouchable. SufferingB, your right about that one, my girlfriend still isn't too sure about the tiki thing, she should have known when I got a chainsaw for xmas and collect wild bamboo from the river bottom and draw little tikis on the end of my chopstixs when we get sushi.

TikiTony, I like that shelf, it is really cool. Don't worry about doing something that is being done. People have the same ideas at the same time .It happens all the time, just do it and have fun. We'll have to hook up some time in the 805.

tHanks thechikitiki, 805's a must. I met ZZ Zachery last weekend and he was showing me some pictures of his stuff and you were in one of them. I recongnized you from posts from tiki events and he said "Yeah this is Kinky Tiki..." but then I corrected him. What a great guy, he was filled with so much enthusiasm. When he would get pumped on something, he would flex his right arm and get into a power stance then describe the way he puts the stain on, or something. THis guy is truley filled with the tiki vibe. Kind of funny how we met, I just got done teaching a surfing school at Mando's Cove (Ventura) and went walking through Rincon Gardens Palm tree farm, I was standing on a 20 ft Canary Island Palm that was like 3 ft thick when he cruised up on PCH with a truck load full of tikis. I thought I was in heaven, sufing, palm tree farm, then a guy rolls up with tikis. Here's his web site for anyone who hasn't seen his stuff, I think he's from Visalia but he cruises down south every weekend to sell tikis. He said a few actors have a tribe-load of his tikis from when he sells in Malibu. Gary Bussi(sp?) ? remember him from Big Wednesday? http://www.zaroga.com/newzaroga_003.htm

TikiTony~
"KinkyTiki" is actually correct. That's just what ChikiTiki's wife personally calls him.

Ah ha, so that was you! ZZ & I were wondering what that was all about. ZZ said he hollowed one of those out so it was movable, Are you going to claim that one? If not, my buddy has a beach house just a few houses away, so I might roll it down PCH to his house and carve it there. I'll probably cut it in half, though, and take the opposite end you started on...unless you want the whole thing...?

Have at it Tony. Just a warning about the weight. Depending on how long it's been down. Tiki Trader gave me my two huge logs and they had been at his place for a few years. My cousin has a roofing co. and we used one of his huge tilt-bed trucks to move the logs. They made the front tires come off the ground! And this truck handles like six full pallets of material.
