Buzzy, here's a pic of what it could look like. This one was on ebay a while ago, and I was going to use it as a fix-up inspiration.

TikiBird: Here are a couple before after shots of the condition of the bar
Untouched:

After a couple seconds of sanding:

4WD: Thanks for that picture.

I'm just cramming in this project with all the other crap I have going right now


Speaking of crap, I sanded and stained this today:


It was partly cloudy today,so I wanted to spend my day outside. I cleaned a log and carved a little piece of it.
Here is my journey of carving this face on a log today
Started by rounding the forehead


Roughed out nose and mouth marked out


Eyes, more nose work, and the tongue started


Tapering in the middle of the head:


Softened up a bit, and now awaiting final sanding and staining:


KTD: Still got "your" tiki sitting right here...

He says: "Damn it, I've been waiting to go home forever now!" Liked that picture you posted too.

TBirdman: You need some bamboo? Got access to a ton of it. Actually, a few tons...
Greentikipat: I love that feeling that I get when I walk out there and do not recognize my own place because it looks so nice. Hope you got that feeling now too.

Zaya: Nice Hat!

Buzzy Out!

Sunset:



Started another one of those low price leader slash and burn a face on a log things before sunset

That was the last picture i was able to take before I ran out light. After this picture, I did a little more on it.

I think I finished sanding the little ficus Ku a little while ago. I just need to not look at it for a couple hours and see if there was anything that I missed seeing on it earlier, when i thought I was done with it for only the sixth or seventh time.

I just looked up at the tv and there was a tiki in the background while they interviewing Ami on Miami Ink.

KTD: Of course, you are in no way bound to that guy...You're always more than welcome to upgrade.

If I had not lost/misplaced my hookknife earler today, I'd do some work on the mini Maori right now. Instead, I'm going to look for my hookknife.

Buzzy Out!

Buzzy I think your hooknife is under the sock in the picture with KTD's tiki in it.

Hiltiki: It was between the log and the sock. I looked everywhere else before I looked there, though.

Some times it's finished, other times you're just done...


Can't get a good picture of it out there in the dark garage.

I also hacked this little guy off the stick and have to do some touch ups and sanding



It's been a long day at work today. I'm looking forward to sitting on the couch a watching tv now. I hope pants off dance off is still on.

Buzzy Out!

Hey Duddy. Sorry, but I was in super fast mode on this one and didn't get any progress shots:

He has some freaky detatched looking lower jaw. Oh my god! That's so freaky!

According to my estimations, about 5% of the population can tell that there is a difference between the preceeding tiki and this one:

The 95% who cannot tell the difference will like the first one better because the price tag on it. People appreciate quality, but they love bargains even more.

Benzart: I work hard, but I play harder!(It really doesn't mean anything, I just like to make myself sound cool and sexy at the same time.) I need to work on my wordplay...
How about: I work longer and later!

I think I need to get to work now. I have a long job ahead of me!

When I play at work, I'm actually getting my job done.
Buzzy Out!

Hey TikiDuddy: I felt so bad about no updates on that last quick one, that I wanted to try to make it up to you immediately. Here's a sequence of photos along with my commentary on the execution of this project that I just completed.

Little tiki drafting:

Head rounded out and some initial marking out

Next step is to mark the whole thing out and check for symmetry. If it's not so balanced, reduce the final price by $5 or spend a bunch of time fixing it. For this one, it's going to be "better luck next time."

Nose defined and the tongue started

All features carved out and lightly sanded to get rid of the pencil marks.

Now awaiting final sanding:


There you are TDuddy. I hope that makes up for the disappointment you must have felt to see that last one done with no updates.

Chock full o' Updates
Buzzy Out!

Dude,

You are rockin' now. Very nice stuff. LOVE the curved guy!

Are you gonna swing by Club Greg when you get to FL? Maybe a detour for a little roast beast and stuffing?

G: Of course. It's one of my two primary destinations. As for swinging by, I'm going to have the heliocopter drop my somewhere in the swamp and i'll try to make my way to a flowing river and follow it east to the coast. Then it's just a matter of finding whichever is closest, your place or benzarts. To reach your guys' places, I'll be able to utilize the necessary urban survival skills I learned by watching my friends play that video game Grand Theft Auto:MiamiVice. I'm trying to find some quicksand to practice in before I commit to a specific date, though. I will obviuosly keep you well informed as to my progress.

Here's another one I managed to slap out this afternoon:





Sunset next!
Buzzy Out!

Can you believe what is being passed off as a "sunset" these days?


I sanded and stained the little basswood Maori inspired guy:


It can also be utilized as a pendant so that you can have your neck look like a shelf in your tiki bar.

If you stand behind your tiki bar while wearing this pendant, you will blend in to the background. Tiki camo* wear.

I have the tv on in the background, tuned to a channel where the Girls Gone Wild commercial comes on occasionally. The sound of those steel drums makes me want to carve. When the commercial goes away after only 30 seconds, I lose the urge to carve suddenly. Carving late at night with that infomercial on for hours on end in the past has resulted in a Pavlovian example of classical conditioning, where I compulsively desire carving upon hearing the girls gone wild steel drum theme. To facilitate a better carving environment, I truly believe that I must have those naughty girls gone wild on in the background now. Carving now has a deep rooted psychological affliction associated with it for me, so hopefully, living in California, that will qualify me for some sort of disability.

I think the 30 minute version of the Girls gone wild commercial is coming on now.

Sunset:


Here's my tribute to those Phillipino Ku spoons and monkeypod mugs:

It's 1" x 1" x 4.5", carved from basswood with a dull hookknife in mere moments today. It's a little smaller than my typical pendants, so this is the first of my new Wimp Tiki Guy(A definite sub class of tiki guys) tiki pendant line, for tiki guys who are too ashamed to display a worthy sized pendant around their pencil necks.

Here he is with his bigger brothers:


No Pencil Necked Geeks!
Buzzy Out!
