Here are the five tikis that will be in the Skootiki show through this month.


This is the group that's going to the Artwalk here in Gresham this Saturday the 16th. It's not a tiki show and I don't really fit in with the other art there but that's what makes it so fun. Some people avoid my tikis like the plague but others really embrace them. If you live in the area come on out-I promise not to shrink your head.


This is what the Artwalk looked like. Even with a little rain in the morning I had a blast and met some great people.

I wanted Paddleman done for this show but I took him as a work in progress.


The back.


There are some cool worm or insect marks that look like an intricate tattoo. No way I could carve that well so I left as much as possible.


Finally finished "Jimbo". He is named after the Reverend Horton Heat's bass player.




"Lombardo" is done. He was like carving a mixture of shredded wheat and pumpkin. His soft head makes him endearing




Also completed "Airic" and "Claude" (below)
Thank you for checkin' in

Some very original (at least to my eye) and cool stuff going on here !!!! I remember the first time I dialed in to page one of Conga's thread. These impact me the same way. Laojia nailed it. . . "Surealistic"

Trust your eye and nice to here from you again amate. Originality is very important to me. I just don't get the same kick from the finished product if I copy something else. And yes laojia and bamboo ben had good descriptions. I like to use what the wood gives-knots, cracks AND insect/worm marks .Thanks surfintiki- Paddleman is a handful of cedar at 7' tall, and the palm came from my brother-in-law from so. cal. We ALL have a friend in Jimbo.
A great compliment tikigodz- The rain gets old but I do live in paradise.

To me the spirit is what tiki is all about so I very much appreciate the nice comment Wendy. Most people that know me say I'm full of something else however.

Got "Paddleman" done this weekend. 7 ft. of cedar.

Here is the back.

I am really enjoying carving this piece of plum. It's hard enough to hold great detail. The base is out of my barn and guessing it's fir.

I love your stuff! so fresh and original. I hope you did well at the art walk? Those are hard to judge because you get a mix bag of enthusiasts. Offering a wide variety of price points can often spur the bigger sales.

Thanks for the compliments! I didn't sell a friggin' thing at the artwalk but still had a great time and will certainly do it again next year. My carvings are a bit different and it is great to hear encouraging words from tiki people I like to follow.

You didn't sell anything?! What's wrong with those people?? Hopefully you caught some eyes and made some good contacts.

Exactly what I thought BigT but this event is not related to tiki in any way. It is a local show where you find garden art on a stick, photographs of kittens and puppies, and lots of jewelry. Some people are afraid I will shrink their heads or something and take a wide berth around my display, but most get it and embrace them.

Here's the latest.

I brushed linseed oil on "Power", He is a piece of plum with a fir base.

I made a spooky lamp out of him using an old bamboo sticky rice cooker as a shade.

A piece of doug fir and a hunk of cedar.


A Halloween Tiki. The middle will be hollowed out and a candle will burn behind.
