Heres the latest tiki, carved out of AAC (hebel) again - the same piece as my tiki skull. Pumped it out in record time for a secret santa gift for my girls uncle. Painted in stone texture paint, then overlayed that with the grey acrylic. With more time I would have experimented more with getting a more accurate stone look with multiple colours songed on. And Pepsi Max can for size reference and to teaze Zaya

Hewey: That's a good one mate! It's very balanced and very clean looking. I like that finish. I just got a piece of aac too:

Zaya's pepsi for reference.

Congrats on that piece! Did it hurt to see it go?

Buzzy

Hey Hewey, nice work! This guy is really cool. It's nice that you're keeping him in the family. At least you can visit him every once in a while! All this talk about Pepsi is making me thirsty!

Thanks folks. Finky, refer to the previous pages posts about strange Pepsi Max product.

Wasnt bad to see this one go, only finished it christmas eve so I didnt have time to get attached. I wasnt happy with the curvey head and straight/blocky body, but I was hesitant to cut into too much and weaken it (given Iv had an AAC carving fall over and split). He was well received anyway, so thats good

Well, the praying tiki has a good home. Dana's uncle decided he was too good to go outside near the pool so he was going undercover by the front door. It was immediately realised that this may nor be very secure, so he is actually residing in the entrance way just inside the front door.

Last night spent a few hours on my 2 foot palm log. The pirate tiki cometh!

Here ya go Buzzy, sheesh...

About 5 minutes work with a chainsaw... Pity I was working with a flat chisel. Mouth will do deeper, going to retrofit some teeth, including a metallic gold one. The top of the head will be rounded off, he'll be given some hair, cloth bandanna with some pirate symbols, wounds, eye patch, inside of the mouth will be red to highlight the candles that will be in his mouth... Cocos Palm, used to stand in my folks backyard.

The pirate slowly progresses. Taken a little off the top to give him more of a rounded head to get away from the square tiki head look a bit. Will probably take some more off. Also made the head a bit more level too. The bandanna will cover all of this, so I don’t have to make it too clean.


Here’s the side profile. Looks much nicer eh?


With work we do regular water quality monitoring in the field. I found these palm logs in the bush at one of the sites we test at. It’s quite common for people to cut down palm trees and dump them in the bush. A few of these required scrambling down a pretty steep embankment to get them, but they were the right price! I think one might be a little rotten inside, but the rest seem okay. They’re nice and dry and ready to carve, and no splits. Wine bottle for size reference



I’ve also done some decorating in my veranda area that is both my tiki lounge and also my workshop! Just some bottles, nothing special. Look at the voodoo shack in Pirates – Dead Mans Chest to see what my inspiration was.


This is Bailey’s (new puppy) house. Got the doghouse second hand off a mate. For now it will be guarded by the moai twins. Eventually it will get a tiki diner make over, but its not a high priority.


I’ve also done a little work on the wagon. Really need to get stuck into it soon so I can sell the bug before its rego is renewed.

Further inspection has resulted in 3 logs going into the bin...

Looks like your Pirate might be cool someday, keep chopping away. I'm Glad the wine bottle was for refrence, I was afraid you had a bunch of drunken logs that had driven themselves off the embankment!! lol

You find Hewey on his estate by following the trail of empty bottles that he leaves behind him. In the morning the trail starts with pepsi max over by the aac. It picks up at around 10am when he breaks into the wine, next to his pile of logs. The last bottle is usually pinstripped. The bottles on the rafters, don't ask! He's up on the roof, trying to find a roo to box...

Are those two different types of palm logs you have there?

Like the dog house. My dog is jealous.

You're on a roll man! Keep it up.

Not enough pictures of the frickin pirate!

Buzzy Out!
