Despite some inclement weather I made a bit of progress. I'm glad to have Ben about finished.

I did some glass eyes and decorations to inlay.

I carved out the back and installed a clock. I will paint the numbers on the face.

The grain on this wood is beauty.

We had this guy's legal name changed from Monk to "Dyson" because he reminds me of one of those blade-less fan thingys. I got a coat of red on him before the temps dropped.

I spent time last week making a compartment in this cedar piece for a few mugs and also ordered some small string lights shaped like floats that will hang on each side of the tiki.

Ben is really something.
A lot going on there.
The guy on top looks cold.
Rojo Dyson, no moving parts.
Is the glass, mug, bottle stand
going to be a bar you could stand at?
Last but not least,
the snow looks great in those pics.
Post card ish.

Thanks amigos, Skoo I am looking forward to Caliente this year, hope to see you there and have these done by then. Yes Will, I want to add a glass top so you can stand around it, more like a bar/table. I cut another portion out of the back that will hold a few bottles and will be lit from the bottom. The snow is great here because it only lasts for a few days at a time, rather than months. I have a question for you guys, though. Do you stay up till 4 in the morning or do you get up that early? Either way it's insane.

I took some progress pictures this weekend.
The first oar I carved sold quickly so I started the other, this one named "Orson"



Except for the numbers on the clock, "Ben" is done.


It is not my style to be delicate and go all tappy tappy with a sharp chisel and mallet but I had to or risk snappy snappy on this unknown 6x6 piece of wood.


From this shot you can plainly see how my shop resembles Tikimeculas'.

I hope to have this cedar stump done for Caliente.


I will add these lit floats to the back.


This section will have the bottles lit from the bottom.

The oar is killer. Ben finished up nice. Are you going to bother much to hide the cord for the light?

Thanks Aloha, below are a few more clocks that hopefully will give you more to burgle. I knew you would run out of cyisms H10, (how bout cychotic or Cy-Tai) Big T I have a channel cut into the back where the wiring will go. The stand is just for display, Ben is actually made to hang on a wall.

It was nice meeting you at Oasis TikiAno and I highly recommend Caliente as Wildsville man throws one heck of a party. I knew you would rally H10 and come up with a few more. The shot glass display carving is starting to take shape.

I hope to complete for Caliente.



"Orson" is almost done.


It's some kind of beautiful laminated wood.


I took a year off of this piece of hemlock mostly because it is pulpy yet crackly and murder to carve but I'm back at it.


Spring is here and these shots are for hiltiki, as it shows the pods that the frogs grow in. Soon I will be able to see tadpoles swimming inside.
