Although I did not make my money back at Oasis, I did better than last year and will do it again next. Thanks to Suze, Brett, and Jason Lee and Michelle for your support!


I received some great gifts from fellow tiki peeps including frog matches from Hang10, a ceramic necklace from Tiki Ano, a handicapped turtle from Jason from Smokin' Tikis, (the poor little devil only swims in circles) and a special thanks to Buzzy for the cool necklaces. I wear tikis given to me by Crazy Al and Aloha Station around my neck whenever I work for the Karvin' Karma and now I can add these to the mix.

Got started on this 7 foot piece of noble last week. Not the best for carving but it was available.

It has some big ass beetles living in it, anyone had experience getting rid of em?


Another chunk of noble roughed out.

Can't you let the monster beatles stay? I always say live and let live. (Unless I'm hungry. Or they are in my way. Or I just want to kill something )

Interesting carves, as usual. I like the work in progress with the NW Coast
Totem style figure on top. Even thought you could have made more money at your
booth....at least you attracted some nice visitors

Always good hearing from you Conga and happy to see you back carving tiki. I did not try to make the top piece so totem looking but that is how it turned out. I snapped a center line on it, made a few marks for eyes and mouth and just started taking out wood. Once I stood it up and looked it was obvious it looked American Indian or Alaskan but that happens when I go in with no plan. Thanks for the Oasis pics Jon, and for enabling me with the noon time libations of beautiful tasting rum with a shot of Fire Ball. Here is an update.


I think it is the eyes and mouth that make it look totem.

The bottom spear fisherman will be holding a cluster of lit floats in his left hand from Tikiskip.


Almost done carving this heavy piece of cedar.


Still a long way to go as I plan on inlaying a bunch of glass pieces.


This is noble from my neighbor.

Carving without a plan.
Tom & I discuss that often.
We have opposing views.

I love it when a plan comes together - that is, when there is a plan. Some day I plan on having a plan. Till then, my plan is to wing it!

Yeah, I knew which one of you was the planner and which one was the "just see what comes out" guy. I think most of us carve for our own amusement so whatever method works is best.
