Heres a lil'mo eye candy fo da Tikis down in Waikiki. it will be goin onto da interance wall so wen you braddahs and sisstaz come visit paradise make sure you rub these carvings to let me know you stoped by.

I'm only half way done. He wants another Maori tiki like da 5 footer on da left and a Rapa Nui Kava Kava Moai on a shield and a thatch bamboo roof. BIZZZZZY! He has a lot a framed leopard Mark Ryden prints so he wanted to carry it on the outside wall too.

I saw Tiki Bar and grill when I was visiting. Your tikis will have good company---there's beautiful original Shags there and also a Crazy Al tiki (I'm pretty sure). I like how their bar taps have wooden tiki handles!

Mike,

Dig your work on the mask and pole. Like the pineapple detail on the mask. You are really turning out some fine pieces.

(but I still really like my Tangaroa you did a few years back, he's been there for all the parties I've had in the bar)

Aloha braddah Bong, I see you rubbing it into "Lucky D" on that Tangaroa. I would love to here you braddahs play and sip on your delicious Maitais one day.

Thats a antique gecko tiki you got there by da way. I'm glad you bought that a few years ago. You're a great collector! There's a lot of mana in that tiki. It road with me from California to Colorado. From Colorado back to Calli and into you tiki bar. Thats always going to be a special one to me being that I carved it outside while it was snowing! you got it for a great price too! I just sold one similar for $575 to a couple from South Carolina.

If I ever move back one day, I would like to visit all of my customers.

Gecko - these are great!
The Rapa Nui shield is really nice...I like the rib detailing.

Thanks for posting
