Here is what the load of black bamboo that I got looks like in case no one has ever seen it:

I like the ones that look like ripening bananas

here is some of the darker bamboo close up


Hiltiki: I have no idea what I'm going to do with this yet. I have a couple of rough ideas, but nothing concrete yet. Right now, I'm just kind of playing around with it and seeing what I can do with it and how it can be attractively utilized. I had the opportunity to get it last week, so I didn't want to pass it up, so I took it without having any idea what I was going to do with it. Got any ideas or need anything made out of bamboo? Holler out if you do...

Started a new one last Sunday night:

Here it was on Monday morning

After a little more work

Getting the body to look right

Toes and starting of mouth

I wanted the legs to taper down from the waist

I had to work Tues during the day. After work I did a few refinements:

Took it inside on Tues night and finished the mouth. Here it is on Wednesday:


My main focus for this one was the tongue and mouth

In between making tikis this week, I did more prep work.
Here are my next few projects cleaned and starting to line up:

I moved all the logs out of my front yard and put them in m work area


I use a box cutter to clean logs with the fronds still on them


final step is to hit it with the planer

My new work area configuration is starting to work out real well

This is where you'll find me...

I didn't want to disappoint Benzart by slowing down for even a moment, so after I finished the last one, I immediately started the next one. I used one of the two smaller logs in the first picture on my last post.
Here it is after the face was carved

I cut some wood out and it looked like this

Bodies need legs

My plan was to remove the wood from the places where it shouldn't be

He looks mad because he doesn't have any hands or feet

I heard that separating the arms from the body is all the rage this tiki making season. Here's my attempt at this year's hot new design concept...

Look ma, no hands!!!

Done with it now but no pictures yet

When I was very young, the first dog that I remember having was an dirty old sheepdog named Roscoe. We lived way out in the country and he was allowed to roam free. He always had long hair and was stinky. One day, he went missing for several days. When he came back, he had a haircut and a brand new collar. The collar had a tag with some different name on it. Because Roscoe was clean, we let him in the house that night. In the morning, Roscoe peed on my bedroom floor, all over some souvineers from my first trip to Disneyland. I cried for my Mom and she came in and yelled at Roscoe. Roscoe went outside and never came back.
This week, I made a Tiki that reminded me of Roscoe. It was made from a log that wasn't that good in composition. Instead of throwing it away, I decided to practice my chainsaw skills.
I didn't draw it out or have a plan. I just cut


I wanted to leave on the outer bark. When done right, it looks cool(see Polynesiac) This one looks like my old sheepdog Roscoe with the bark left on.

All chainsaw, about one hour total project time.
I should have posted it under an alias and called the strand "My First Tiki!!!!:)" Then when all you guys started posting positive messages like "Great first effort! Keep carving and Keep posting! Tikidudebudguy", I would come on as Buzzy and say " That tiki sucks man! If I made an ugly tiki like that, I sure wouldn't share it with the world. You should give it up cause you suck!" Then I would answer back under the alias that Buzzy was rude and it was my first effort, and it was fun. Then I would be Buzzy and say "Fun for me is beating you up!" Then my alias would post a sad final message about not being welcomed here and how he was giving up carving because he didn't want to get beat up. Then all you guys would think I'm a jerk and kick me off the site. Please don't hate me for making an ugly tiki this week. It was only practice...

Hiltiki & Hakalugi:

This is a sampling from about the smallest to the largest pieces I have. They run about 6-9 feet long.

Buzzy, you are out of control funny. I think I have an idea for the black bamboo. As soon as I finalize it I will let you know. I have been buying bamboo plants lately to decorate my garden. Black bamboo is my favorite. I like the tiki with no hands, how about a tiki with lots of empty areas inside and out all over kind of like skeleton looking . you know what I mean?

Buzzy, I Really LOVE the one you did to keep me from being disappointed, Very Nice but I don't think you have enough logs to keep you going for very lonjg. Can't wait to see the bamboo project, beautiful stuff.

Let me take this time to answer some recent correspondence:
Kirby: I bought the planer in about October or November of last year. So far, I have not had to change the blades. the model I have has reversible blades, so when they dull, you simply use an allen wrench to turn them around. It also came with an extra set of two sided blades. It's funny that you should ask this now because I was just thinking it was about time I switched them. I have not noticed a performance problem with it yet, but it feels like it's about time. I know that when I change chainsaw blades, I cannot believe how much better the tool works the first time I try it. I assume that I will have the same revelation when I finally change the blades on the planer. Then I'll know how it's supposed to work...

Mc Tiki: Get to it! The night is young still. Have fun and thanks for posting in.

Benzart: I know! I'm almost out of logs. I already called the tree service last week. I told them I would run out of logs in about 20 days, and I need more right now! I hope that I do not run out of logs before I run out of ideas. That would be a waste of good ideas. Oh yeah, keep being my inspiration please. It's been working out well for me lately. Thanks always, Buzzy.

Tfisherart: Thanks for the compliment. These last logs I got were real nice. Too bad I'm almost out.

Hiltiki: I think I know what you mean. Hope to hear more from you soon.

Everyone else here at TC: thanks for checking out my stuff and do not be afraid to comment. I'm currently living solely on no sleep and feedback . It's not healthy, but real good for getting carving done. So chime in any old time...I promise I'll answer(eventually)

Started a new one today. This one will have three Marquesan styled figures standing atop one another, totem pole style(Can you call it a totem pole if it is not from the Northwest Coast cultural geographical region?)It stands about 5'4".
Here it is after I barely started:

more tomorrow...
