Ken, you always have been, and still are, my HERO! This new stuff I've been seeing in this thread is completely fantastic and I Wish a million times that I had all kinds of extra money to shower you with for your wonderful carvings! You and your work are AWESOME!

Thanks everyone for the compliments and very kind words. Even though it is after 12:00 at night your compliments are very inspiring. It makes me want to go out and see what else I can create but I dont think the neighbors would like it if I did. Puamana thanks for posting pics your hut and backyard are amazing. Tiki Lee thanks alot you made my night. Hope this doesn't sound to sappy Im just glad to be back and doing what I enjoy instead of working on that damn pipeline .

Keigs- I also feel that you are one of the best carvers goin. I swear to god that this week I am finally going to get the dimensions to you for the trio of tiki masks I mentioned so many times. I love the shelf I got from you and also have another project I will run by you when I get the ask dimensions.

The stuff I'm seeing on this post simply rules.. great work

Hope you don't mind me posting pics of your work, Ken. I am so proud to own them, though.


The first one I bought....


The second is my 40th birtday present from the wonderful Mrs. Pineapple.

Now I want to have you carve a tiki to cover the front of our brick mantle/fire box. Let's talk next year...

I don't suppose you're going to be carving/selling some more tiki shelves anytime soon?

I have wanted to do some mosaics for a long time. I thought and still think they are a very very cool. I also wondered why more people have not done them. Now I know why. I started with about the most basic tiki face possible last night at 8:00pm I stayed up until 4:00am because I had set a goal to at least get all the little tiles glued to the paper I had to fulfill my goal. Not knowing this would take 8 hours of backbreaking work from bending over the table all night. I inlaid it cedar today with the help of a router. I still have some brushing and a little more grouting to do but here is what I got so far. Again this is my first one so dont laugh. My wife says it looks like a serving tray which is not really the look I was going for. Oh well here it is
