Here are a couple images from Tiki Oasis 6 today:






Most of these came from a vendor and his son who were from Malibu. Based on his example, I think I need to add a 40' diesel crane to my list of carving tools to pick up some day. How come I do not remember any of you guys talking about using yours on the tools thread? Benzart, where do you keep yours? Anyway, I'll have a full report and many more pictures later. Buzzy out!

I sold all of them before I could get my camera out. Actually,I cannot find one of three memory discs that I had with me. As I write these very words now, my girlfriend is emailing one she took yesterday, and I'll post it right after I send this.I have a big pile of junk to sort through right now and i'll post my pictures of my ghetto booth when I find them. To hold you over, here is the promotional picture I used for my business cards and "advertising." This was everything that I took the show on Saturday:

I called myself The San Diego Tiki Factory at the show, hence the surfboards. You know-San Diego, the beach, surf culture, that whole thing. Playing it up for the local crowd. All weekend I had ratty old school surf dudes just come up and look at the picture and never even glance at the tikis. It did however, also draw a lot of people over who did stay and talk and look. I think it was a good choice and the best option with my budget of zero.

Malibu man was Zach Zachary . His son carved the largest one. I sold 9, traded one for a ton of glassware, and gave two away. I had a man from Las Vegas want to buy the most expensive one I had there, but I didn't have the means to process a credit card. I talked to Ona later in the day and he said I should have asked someone else if I could use their pos card terminal. Damn! If I only thought of that an hour sooner. It was a $625 mistake. Oh well! I only did this whole thing as a learning experience, and too bad that was a costly lesson to learn. Anyway, it may have a happy ending because he wants me to ship it to Hawaii, to his other house. I asked why he would want to do that with so many Hawaiian carvers there(I assume)and he told me he doesn't like the Hawaiian style and that is what they make there(go figure.) I can only hope he follows through and contacts me later. I'll post my booth pictures when the signal improves and I can get to shutterfly. I've been trying for an hour now...stupid free weak wireless signal...

The pictures my girlfriend took were accidently taken at max resolution. they take forever to download. In the interest of saving your valuable time, I took these off the computer screen at low res with my usual camera, that is why they look funny

When you walked into the indoor pavilion through the front door, I was the only tiki guy on the right side. This is your line of sight as you approach my booth from the front door:

Here is the front row. On Saturday, I put the large and costly ones in front for dramatic effect. They were back to back with 6-7 medium ones directly behind them(no picture of those boo-hoo

this was the back row with our hotel supplied table and two chairs

like I said, my booth was ghetto looking. Obviously I didn't win the prize for best decorated booth. I did put up an 8x10 a couple minutes later for my business banner. I will have a lot more to say about this event later.

Buzzy, real nice showing at Oasis. It was good to meet you & put a face with the name. You've been producing tikis fast & furious, and I can only imagine what you will be displaying by next year's Oasis. Keep up the good work!

A-A

My booth at Oasis was right across from painter Adam Kilss' booth. He had some real quality oils and the frames were really neat too. When he was setting up his booth, I checked out how he made his bamboo frames. I was expecting a New Yankee Workshop in scope project, but was surprised to see how easy and logically intuitive the construction process of it was. On Monday, I really wanted to start carving right away, but I lost my mallet somewhere over the weekend. So, instead, I made two frames for a couple of paintings I did a while ago. I noticed how much alcohol consumption, bar accessories, and tiki themed merchandise were all entwined with one another at the show; this is my attempt to create something different than I have been doing to date, but is well within the parameters of the ever broadening realm of the tiki universe

This is an oil on canvas of a neon light restaurant sign in my neighborhood. I made the frames with some giant bamboo that I got from the tree service, based on the ones that Adam Kliss made for his paintings.

This is another painting I did of the the same sign, but I changed the top and bottom to stained wood to use as shelves. In this picture, I threw a couple shot glasses and a wood carving up to show the intent of this design.

My idea was that in a home tiki bar type setting, the first painting would be placed in the dining or sitting area, while the second painting would be behind the bar next to a real neon sign, displaying a shot glass selection. It's like installation art...What next???
I have full step by step photos of making these if anyone cares to see how I did it. It's super easy to do and actually involves some minor carving if you are a detail obssessed freak like myself. Just ask and I'll post them soon.

Gracias a Paul y Miguel de Rancho por el bamboo.
Today I went to the tree service yard to pick up some bamboo that they had stored for me. While I was there, I noticed that they had moved my logs to a new and convenient spot in the yard. They made it too easy for me, so I brought home some logs with the bamboo.
Here is today's haul:

Looks like lots of good times ahead...
I'd talk more, but look...new logs...bamboo...you understand!
Back to work, (if I ever even actually stop working)...
