Real nice job on the big feller Buzzy, great carve and excellent finish. Always fun to visit
Buzzy land to see what you're up to. The latest little feller is cool too.
Conga out!

More Super Excellent Stuff Buzzy, You are really getting More than good.
Man Oh Man, Thanks for the Spiel about the ChopChop, I Really wish I could have been there. And Don't give ME any credit for the Oki Oki, it was Moki&Ric and Matt who did all the work and set it all up and Moki was the main doer. You guys need one of those every month, Spread the tiki carving wealth around, make more tikis and make More SAW DUST. You know for every pile of sawdust you make, there is a tiki there somewhere and I'm Proud to see you sticking with the Hook and doing so well with it.
Where's the Sunset?
Oh and I Love the "Tiki-henge". Those guys at Stone-Henge didn't do it all. They left some for you to do too.
Thanks for all the pictures on the other thread, just need names to go with all those new faces.

Hiltiki, TDuddy, Conga, and Benzy: Thanks guys! Hope I can continue entertaining you with the tiki universe as seen through my eyes.

The sun came out right at the end of the day yesterday


I pretty much wasted the whole day playing with dolls yesterday. Eventually, I started to go insane and had to carve something real quick to stave off the demons in my head. All my wood was in the rain, so I dug the end piece out of the trash from my last piece.
This is what I see at night

Here he is after I worked on him for the evening


This is the piece that had the cavity in it through which I took a sunset photo. I lined it up so that I can string a line through it and call it a pendant


Sun's out, so's Buzzy!

Just need to check this guy's progress:



Sometimes I can see stuff on the pictures that I cannot see in real life

Thank you for your understanding.
Buzzy Out!

Sunset today was one which was nothing to write home about. Just to prove it, I provide the following photographic evidence:

I don't want to say "I told you so." That would be gloating.

A lot of clean up on this little guy and some sanding will do it

I'm glad I didn't throw this piece of wood away

I still managed to keep the pendant hole in the back

This was as close to a non stop carve as I've ever done.

I don't know, Buzz, but I'm pretty sure you're a real tiki guy.

VonTiki: Sup' Man! You know that, but you met me....I'm tiki on the inside, but not on the outside, though. That is what I'm working on. I want to be recognized as a tiki guy by the guy who works the drive thru at Weinerschnitzel, not just you guys. If I commit a horrible crime, I want the APB to be for a tiki guy, armed and dangerous.

Most crime happens after the sun disappears...

California should try to mandate some sort law to make the earth stop moving so the sun would never go down. It would pass if someone would argue that crime would go down and it would make the children here safer. Maybe we could raise taxes to get a big chain to anchor us to the moon. Could that stop the earth's rotation?

Put some color on this guy.



For the ladies


I'm going to go look to see if I have any Weinerschitznel coupons...

Where Are My Keys Buzzy Out!

Hey Duddy. Glad you like the progress shots. ready for today's lesson?
Here it is:

Carving a tiki body from a log

First thing I did was draw the centerline, mark the outer edge, and bring the head to the right size. I then carved the neck, and made the angle from the chests highest point to the bottom of the neck. Next, I carved the pie shape out that will makes the torso and arms and carved in the lines where the legs would be.


Next, I carved the angle that would make the shins to the top of the feet. Then I removed some material from between the legs and marked out the feet


At this point, the torso is formed further by moving back the arms. I'm leaving enough for the hands while I do this. I'm also bringing out the feet and defining the legs better. The gouge on the side will divide the hands from the legs


Here I've brought the hands back and am working on the top of the legs


The bottom of the stomach is taken back and the space between the legs gets deeper


Now I've carved a slot between the arms and the torso. This defines the ams, seperates them from the body, and gives further depth to the torso


Next lesson: Body refinements and face carving.

Enjoy!

Buzzy Out!
