Will, Your work is phenomenal! I got to see it at the Mai Kai the last few years since the renovations of the garden and valet area began. I grew up in South Florida, but moved to Ocala some years ago. I try to get down there at least once or twice a year. I will be going in February for my birthday, definitely stopping in the gift shop and picking up one of your concrete tikis if they are still there.

Thank you for the comps.
Recognition is rewarding.

I found the original wood New Caledonian roof finial.
He was in the inside garden.
I have no idea how long he'd been there.
laying in the dirt, leaning against a rock.
Leaning because his feet rotted off.
No way to tell how old he is. The mold was made
almost 50 years ago.
I put one of my castings there, standing.
So I brought him home, gave him a light sanding,
a Min Wax stain bath & he looks like he's 100 years old.
I'm gonna see if I can get the gift store to
put him in one of the display cases.
He deserves a break from garden duty.

I've put 19 cement pieces at the Mai-Kai
in the last few months.
This one is one of my favs.
We've seen this painting made famous
by Zerostreet Robert.




I call that guy in the window the peeper.
How cool is that.
He just stands there looking at every one.
I don't know how long he's been there,
as long as I can remember.

Any one notice he was gone?

He fell over. They scraped up the pieces &
threw them away.

We still have the mold.
New ones live on.
There are 2, back to back.
New paint job looks 100 years old, it's perfect.

Thank you every body.
Hilda,
come pick one up.
I have an extra for you.

So, I guess every one liked it and they asked me
to teach another carve class at Hukilau thus year.
I've been looking at the Barney West castings &
this looks doable as a palm frond pendant.
I did a few of them & I'm trying to keep it simple.
Here's the B.W. & in the order I did them where I
think I can take them.

Have I mentioned how much I like palm?
I'm using the kiss method here.
Not so much time in this so
I won't ask so much for it.
He's 5 ft.,but it has to dry out a lil
before I can finish it.
