Hey Benzart! Glad you decided to check in on the Buzzmaster. Yes, as always, I had`few things to share with the TC world. It was kind of slow around here this weekend, so I decided to try and fill some of the tiki void we were experiencing. I want people to log on to TC and find new Educational, Enlightening, or Entertaining posts every time they are here. And if they cannot find those three E's, then they can come over here for my pretty pictures...

Today's sunset in three phases




Hey Duddy, here's some more of weed head. Kind of like a before/after sequence








I was originally going to throw that piece of wood away. I was just testing a tool real quick, and after I started I just kept on going. Glad I stuck with it. I'm happy with the results. Tomorrow I'll slap a bunch of clear on it and show it as it is intended.

For now, I'm going back into the garage to sand some more on the tiki I keep putting off finishing.

Buzzy Out!

Put some clear on my newest little guy:
This is my favorite picture of it:

It's a new tint of stain I tried for this one

It's called Red Chestnut

Looks real good on this one. I reduced it by 33%

Do not know how it will work on palm. Probably be too red.

Here's the angle that makes it a "Weedhead"


Awhile back I stated that I was going to attempt to become a "Tiki Guy". Since then, I've only managed to lose a couple pounds and I still don't wear mandals. So, I'm even further away from being a true tiki guy than when I started this quest. However, I think I may have turned a corner today. I noticed that a vital component to the Tiki Guy ensemble is a tiki pendant, displayed prominently above a booze built stomach with a hawaiian shirt backdrop. So, to proudly show that I am a true Tiki Guy, and announce this fact of my Tiki Guyness to the public at their first glances, I have constructed my first pendant, which I will now sport wherever I go, to back up my claim of being a Tiki Guy

This last little piece was not a statue. I actually constructed it as a pendant. No crappy little screw either. A real carved pendant hook on the back.


It's not a big pendant, it's just that I don't have a Mai Tai gut to scale it down.

You have to be committed to wear something like this. A true proud Tiki Guy...If you see me at Albertson's wearing this, you will say, "Hey look at that Tiki Guy over there..."
Mission Accomplished!!!

Now I'm going to make a fez from an old rum barrel...

Tiki Guy Buzzy Out!

4WD: That outfit is my Sunday Best. Speedo Saturday coming up...I have to get an early start on my tan this year.
McTIKI: I do not understand all the particulars and legal aspects of house arrest, but in this case my public defender said technically I'm not out in public, the windows are shut, so it's perfectly legal to show off my wood as I see fit. Except when children are present.
TDuddy: In Canada, like Mexico, you're an adult at 15, right?

Sunset:



After a marathon, I'm 98% done sanding this guy.



I want to hollow out the back a little more so it isn't as heavy. I'm still undecided on the stain.

As long as I have uplights it doesn't matter what color it is.

Late? Early? It doesn't make any difference to me anymore...

Buzzy Finally Out!

Whoa, Tiki Guy....your bling is bigger than my bling!

I don't know dude, old weed head there might also be able to double as a floatie....you should consider rocking him with the Speedo too. Nobody will ever kick sand in your eyes at the beach again if your sporting that bad boy.

Wow! Red Chestnut aka Weedhead is so great! If wearing this don't make you a Tiki guy I don't know what could make it... maybe you need a 24/7 tropical drink in your hand...No maybe not... Congrats!!

Absolutely perfecto work, Buzz. We're all jealous as hell. That stain is ace.

I think in Canada you're an adult at 17. I grew up there, and we used to go believe it or not watch strippers and drink beer (not that weak Yankie stuff, "Brador" beer was like 6.5%) during lunch hour in high school! The Fireside Bar was a 6 minute walk from our school.

That may be because we were pretending to be 18, though. The bartender and girls didn't care, we were often the only ones in the place. We also used to get hammered with our Physics and Math high school teachers on ski trips, they seemed to think we were adult enough to get slooshed with. We'd bring warm ski socks in our suitcases, they'd bring a full bar with 4 kinds of wine, an ice chest of coolies and mickies of whiskey. Their room was an open party every night of the trip.

I don't think you could do that nowadays, but thank you Mr. Granville for that whiskey & soda.

Anybody ever seen the movie "How to Steal a Million" with Audrey Hepburn and Peter O'Toole? Peter pretends to be a big time crook to impress Audrey. When the chips are down, he actually has to try to go through with a big heist at the Paris Nation Art Gallery. His plan is to sneak in with a boomerang, and simply keep setting off the motion detectors in the Gallery over and over until the guards finally write it off as a malfunction and throw up their hands in (French) disgust and turn the alarms off!

To his astonishment, the plan actually works. He then simply walks with Audrey over to one of the paintings , picks it up and strolls off with it.

The thing is, I kind of feel like that's what's happening with the House of Buzz thread here on TC. It's always being posted with new stuff, the same people hang out here like the local pool hall, and Buzzy is always on about something he hates (slow drying gloss coat, rain) or something he likes (sunsets, getting wood) that the Lords of Tiki Central have given up like those French Guards in exhaustion and -

ANYBODY CAN SAY ANYTHING THEY WANT HERE!

Nobody seems to check! I don't want to be the first to try it, maybe I'm wrong, but somehow I get this feeling. You can mouth off all you want here!

Anyway, Buzz Dog, maybe you should take a break for a few hours or so. Relax. Carve some Spam for a while. Take a breather, Champ.

To all my regulars: Welcome back! It's great to "see" all of you again. Thank you very much for all your kind praise and continued support. Happy hour 24-7 in the house of buzz...
Kahaka: Hey, thanks for joining in on the fun and I'm glad you appreciate my work enough to take time out of your day and comment.
Cammo: I'm going to answer you, but I'm going to wait another post until it's on the top of the next page so your important points do not get lost in the volumes of garbage that have accumulated on this thread.

Stained this guy:


Gotta run I'm a busy guy.
Buzzy Out!
