The latest for Whanga Rei Bar & Grill

His right arm was hit by a car when he was laying down for a nap, it also damaged his mouth area. Drunks probably thought it was a parking barrier and tried to run over him. I had to cut a new arm and attach it with screws.
BTW, all the tikis outside are for sale, and inside all but 2.

Jungle doctor, That is the BEST one yet. Is that the one I helped you with? It must be because it is just Too dam good. hahahaha
Seriously, this one is very good, and the patch job is very good. I'm sure Any Tiki Doctor would be proud of this guy.

JT...ever resourceful. It looks great - I love the contrast, very nice job.

You should find that "don't tip the tiki sign" (or whatever it was) that's floating around on TC to warn other drunks...

He had knees and feet too but one was damaged in the accident, so I cut them both off.

Nice, JT. I love seeing the progression - they just got better and better. I hope mine go the same way. That last one blows away all of the predecessors. Not that they were lacking... But really, this last one is "Da Kine". Post more to keep us inspired!

Hey DR JungleTrader,
You did such a amazing job on that tiki I was wondering do you make house calls? I have a hangnail I need removed. Can you help a braddah out?

Hey chongo, I WANT to fix your HangNail, I got the tools.
Raffertiki, the patch job looks even better after you explained the extent of damage. I can see the outline of where the legs and feet were. Too badthe careless driver did that to your masterpiece. I'm sure the next one willbe even Better yet.

Thanks again everybody.
Hey Aaron's Akua, you're right though about progression, evolution. Practice really does pay off. practice, practice, practice, carve, carve, carve. I get more confident everyday and the work gets better. And honestly I do appreciate constructive criticism, it helps me look at it differently. The hardest thing is getting a 3 dimensional look. It's easy carving flat. I'd like to get to a point where I'm using the entire piece, not just the top few inches. practice, practice, practice. cut deep, go deep.

JT - I think you're right, gotta go deep. I get only about 2 or so hours of carving time a week, so I've got plenty of time to ponder this stuff. The tiki gods have frowned upon me and burdened me with a mortgage to pay, yard work, and taking care of my lovely wife who "conveniently" broke her leg so I would have to do all of the chores.

Where the heck is Turlock, anyway?

Aaron's Akua, Turlock is 1 1/2 hr. drive directly east of San Fran Cisco. I remember Rancho Santa Margarita. Near Escape Country? I remember taking pics of a wet t-shirt contest down there back in the daze. 1 girl didn't want to lose....she took it all off....and won. Still have the pics.

Here's 2 more I just finished. Tikicleen and Drunken Hat have a new addition to their family. Happy Bithday Cleen.

those last three are looking really good, its unfortate that the one guy became of vivtum of a drunk hit and run.

you better keep these 2 new ones away from those drunk tiki maimers. In my mind hitting a tiki with a car show but a federal offense.

My newest. This is a limited edition of 1, bidding starts at 2000 clams. If you come to the Central Valley Mini Crawl...you'll get to touch The Beast.
