Hello Tiki Central Its been 7 months that I have posted. Wow time flies. Well Thanks to Tiki Central and its members
I have grown alot I have been carving Full time. and have had to focus on vital task. I got a store front on a busy street in Orlando and have been carving on site this main street and just drawing them in. Its been real hard because I have had to do all the work my self open set up carve and clean up. Carving in the Hot sun for 5 to 6 hours takes a toll , But a big Decor Companiy noticed me and I am now thier exclusive tiki artist , They have a contract with margarita ville and they also do decor for all theme parks around the world , go figure,
My first job was 2 8 x 24 cypress log .

They have a bid now for 19 10 feet cypress carvings and 2 8 feet carvings , I am sure it will go through.

Its just amazing how just being connected and being a student here on TC can change your life. so i guess i am going to post a few pictures . Thank you all for your support incoragement and tiki carving advise,

Practice makes progress have a nice day!

here is my new web site
www.niceworkbylaz.org

MY CYPRESS SUPPLY















Here are most of the carvings I have done since I started 17 months ago I got so busy that thier are alot of carvings that i did not even get a chance to take a picture

Thanks Will!!!!!

Well its been two years since i went from carving Ice to carving palm and wood, I joined in september 15 2014
with no experence in tiki culture, being on TC was a great motivating factor to push my self to show the progress TC has been showing me.

Here are a few pictures that i have not posted from last month,



























So this is whats going on I bought a hitch for my Van and spend $1000 on all supplies last week i picked up 30 5 foot sabal palms

So I am ready for action, I am just burnt out , but i have to carve because it is my full time Job
So i I come to tiki central again .

Congrats on the Margaritaville order. Long and skinny - stretch all of the features. Fill in the blank space with patterns and easy detail. Price is right. Post Pics.
