Have you ever seen that show on HGTV "What's with that house?" You're one of those guys they would love to hear from.

I'm busily working away at this moment, but I wanted to post yesterday's sunset before today's happened:



I was hoping Cammo would post his OkiDoki tiki to entertain you guys while I was playing with logs today. He brought it over this morning and it looks cool. Come on Cammo, help me out here, I need to go cut some logs and do not have time to post

I'll post more later, including some tiki work, as well as answer a few of youz guyz inquiries.
Bye Bye Now!
Buzzy Out!

Um, ah, well... sorry but there aren't any pics of it yet.

It may or may not be finished; should I keep working on it or not???? I'll ask the carving folk what they think tomorrow. We'll have a democratic vote. Everybody gets one vote, Buzzy's dog gets two.

Lousy SD sunset today:


Luckily, Tiki Kate donated a sunset today for all of us to enjoy.

"The beach at Lahaina" by Tiki Kate 2007



Thank you Tiki Kate.

Sunset fans do not worry, because the donations have been pouring in. Hopefully we will make it through the season...

Now back to Pre Tiki work:

I got a load of good looking ficus logs:


Now for Tiki work: I did a lot today, so I've got a lot of ground to cover quickly. Hang on

I stripped the fronds off these two logs first


Then I got one from stock and cut it roughly the same length


Next, I stripped all three completely. They all need to be 30". the black lineon them shows how much leeway I have in squaring them up.


I also prepared an older piece of ficus i had for my recreation project


Tonight I started my recreation project:

Informative part:
To square up my log when necessary, I match it to a line on my stand I know is true


Little drafting to guide me through the layout of the more complex headress I'm attempting


More tiki drafting and a little progress


More blurry progress


Full body shot:


Tonight's tribute final progress shots:


Everybody's favorite shot:


Where does the time go?
Buzzy Out!

Hey Buzzy, Is everything OK? Just blink twice if you can't talk...Blink, Blink...Looks like you're under the gun to create new Tikis....Is the shady looking Tiki the ring leader? Blink, Blink...I understand, I'll telepathically send a distress signal to Kiva, the Wonder Dog...Hang in there Buddy, help is on the way...A sunrise on the way to Vegas to distract the Brooding ring leader Tiki...

Oki Doki Pics.

This piece has been haunting Buzzy in one way or another for a really long time. He gave me the log, and advised on how to chop away big sections without a chainsaw (use a Japanese back-saw).

I started it just before the Oki Oki in October of 2006.

It's been to most of the Chop-Chops since then. The whole thing was mostly done with one 1" flat chisel, that was my basic rule. I'll never do that again.



I'm trying to do it really primitive.
The staining was done with reds and dark browns, then let bone dry, then sanded down at the edges to age the thing. Then I went over everything with that Zizznznster Amber Shellac, including the white face. Buzzy said it looks like cracked leather. It looks really weird.
Close to done now-


Going for big, blocky, cubist shapes.
He's going to be holding onto a surfboard table when I'm done.
Side View - looks like he's holding up the canoe -


Having fun with the face-


The eyes are little shells, glued into carved-out depressions -


The back - I like the back more than any other part. It's exactly the Primitive-chunky look I want.


But the hardest part to carve was those dang feet. Those sandals are lightly painted in thinned-down red enamel, then coated with that Amber Shellac. The thick sandal soles make a great base to stand it in, and give it a bizarro surfing Tiki look.


Cam Out (of his mind)

"Everybody's favorite shot:"

Yes Sir! Only....there are no feetz in them shooz? Sup wit dat? I always have feetz in the shooz! We need feets in the shoes.


On another note, are you planning to make any MONSTER tiki-guy pendants from those ficus logs? Like your skinny armed Ku perhaps? I hear they are all the rage since the release of the House of Buzz.

Buzzy's the Lord Overseer Grampa Munster of the Oko Doki guy. It's his log, his stain, and his advice that made it happen.

Thanks Buzz & the Wonder Dog
