You've been working hard and turning out some great tikis. I've started counting the days until Tiki Kon. See you there, Wendy

Amate I must confess that after some careful detective work on my part the particular said piece of wood from Aloha was actually walnut rather than mahogany. (It said "walnut" in black sharpie on the back.) Thanks AM, and I am looking forward to the Tiki Kon event as well DLT. Here is some progress on "Lonnie"

Thanks for checking in Wendy, skip there was too much beautiful carving wood left in that area to just leave alone, so the thought of making it a cool rum barrel did cross my mind. No pjc, hell has not frozen over quite yet, but Frog Island did today.

I used some kind of soft pine- wood from my barn to finish this album cover swap piece, but I swear a piece of wet chip board would have carved up as well as this shit did.

Who couldn't like a Tiki with a happy belly.
I was thinking about how frosty it must be getting up there.
I guess I don't expect to see much from most carvers north of
Palm Beach.

Eventually I'm doin' a couch surf from Seattle to San Diego, and I'm definitely makin' a stop at frog island..

Thanks Will and H10, I have a nice heated room downstairs that is now scattered with walnut chips, but I should get outside this weekend as it is warming to the 35-40 range. Pjc, thanks man, I know my style isn't for everyone, but I try and make this thread amusing to look at. Like Tiki Central, Frog Island is open 24 hours to visitors and hope you make your way to Oregon. Best weather months are August-October.

Cy that photo is beautiful. I love Oregon and most of my family lives there. Is that water frozen? Wendy

Wendy and Dan in the near twenty years I have lived here the pond has not frozen as solid as it did a few short weeks ago. I wanted to put a tiki on it to photograph but it warmed quickly and now we are back to more moderate conditions. A good question hiltiki, they hibernate during the winter months and reappear in the spring. I will post the cool looking clear pods that they lay their eggs in come spring. Happy Holidays to all my tiki pals, here is an update.
This piece of walnut is almost ready for a clear coat.

For stability purposes I added a fir base. I will fill the gouged out section with beach sand so he will feel more comfy.


Also did a bit on this fir log.
