Wow your work is very inspiring. Is this what you do for a living? Also did you find a florida supplier of white pine?

Dragon, No it's just a side thing. "Fun" money. I have worked for the US Postal Service for 15 years as an Artist/Illustrator in our district marketing department.

Thanks for the compliment.

Tiki G.

Lancelot worked great! Only a minor kickback or two before I mastered it. No missing parts, though. I'm thinking of picking up the Squire to go with it. Apparently you can mount the Lancelot & Squire in tandem for REAL FAST wood removal.

Mahalo for all of your safety tips!

Aaron

Nice work G!

Is that a chair leg?

The "teeth tikis" are the bread and butter but I love seeing the classics you dive into on the side... the home furnishings kick butt too!

Might get to go surfing here Thursday... lake thawed a bit and with the south wind kicking 15-25 mph and the air temp up to 46 we get to surf 34 degree waves...

Lake you are correct Sir'. It is indeed a chair leg....oak. It is now a tap handle for a draft beer tower should I say. Have been makeing a few of these things here lately. Takes me just as much time to carve one of these little rascals as it does a 4ft tiki it seems....go figure. Not really worth the time spent doing it if you know what I mean.

Dude that is some cold ass water you got there. You actually have to wait for the ice to melt! Holy cow, you must be wearing 5 mil suits? Waves were pretty fun here over the Holidays, small but clean. Here are a couple links to my two favorite surf report sites here in N. Florida.

www.surf-station.com (St. Augustine)

www.fluidgroove.net (jacksonville Bch)

Also a link to my surf club. Some pics of me doing my stuff in there under member photos.

www.wavemasters.org (surf club)

Thanks alot for the praise Dave. I like carving the ancient looking things just as well. You keep up the good work yourself. In the middle of another Bar and Dartboard cabinet at the moment. Will post pics as soon as they are done.

Be cool,

G.
