Sunsets, one post back. Just words here:

Thanks to all my friends for their good birthday wishes...

Zaya: Thanks for getting all this crap started...
Freddie: I always dress for the occasion, and I always dress for success!
Amy: Thanks a bunch! I had a great day.
GROG: I know I'm number 1!
BillyBobaloo: Sorry, I'm on the atkins diet...
4WD: I'm still two years away from buying my bright yellow convertable corvette.
TDuddy: thanks Buddy!
Benzart: I actually had the evening free, but never got the invite.
Hank: 28? I think you need to get your mom's permission to hang out with me. And no, you're all losers! We are LEOS!
Tornhalo: Thanks man!
Bowana: No old folks home for me, I'm going to settle down in Florida. Things are a little slower over there, and in my advanced age, I feel like I'll thrive in that environment. You'll always be tikidav to me...
BambooBen: Talk about tied down...
Hiltiki: *

I love my friends!
Buzzy Out!

Now on to tiki stuff...
Old business:

I finished these five guys just in time for Oasis



Newer business:
I put a couple coats of wood oil on this guy




He keeps looking better and better! It blends in with some of the finer furniture in my house.

Newest business:
After tiki oasis, I told myself I'd take two weeks off from tiki to decompress from all the tiki overload I experienced during and leading up to the event. That lasted until about 11:30am on Monday. I finished carving the last couple things I left unfinished and started sanding this guy

I cleaned my garage on Tuesday, a little...

I finished sanding it today and stained him this evening








I've been so busy last few days. You guys would hardly recognize the place:

Looks like a months long mess waiting to happen.

Back to work...
Buzzy Out!

Buzz,

That oil finish looks mighty nice. It compliments an already killer carving. Thanks for that. I can't wait to see him in person.....

A few sunsets to catch you guys up during the nonTc era:






Started another ficus piece a couple days ago:




Here it is now:


If it wasn't so hot, I'd be working on this big one I have all marked out and ready to go:



I'll be in touch with you all when this TC thing works.

Buzzy Out!

I read my last post and felt like a wimp. I wasn't going to carve because of the heat.I thought of Van Gough suffering for his art: drinking, hanging out with whores, and cutting off his ear. So, I went out in the heat to suffer for my art. Now That I've done this, I wonder if they'll let me carve at Cheetahs?

Here's a little time spent in the warmth of the sun:

It's so hot you can see the heat(I have my camera set on infrared)


Cheetahs is in the same parking lot as Rockler!
Buzzy Out!

Throw in a couple of those Arizona Ice Tea: Sweet Teas too, and we can probably work something out. Rum Cake: No thanks.

I am the Buzzmaster model 2007. I'm just about to upgrade to the 2008 model. Apprenticeship schedule: 1 year of cleaning logs and House of Buzz. 1 year of chisel sharpening. 1 year of rough sanding. 1 year of finishi sanding. After that, I'm just going to quit carving and make mugs. Wax on, Wax off!

Yes it is Ficus and I have no idea what you are talking about and what have you done with my friend, TikiDav? I'm going to spend all my money on his pendants. I didn't use asymetry, I mostly used a hookknife and some sandpaper.

Benzart: Thanks for giving away my secrets. Just because you know what I know, it doesn't mean everyone else needs to know it too. Yes, I just scratched a couple lines in the wood, put on some stain, and Poof! tricki tiki all done. Don't tell anyone all I'm doing is relief carving too. They cant tell from the pictures and I'm doing a pretty good job of making them think i'm doing this on round logs, instead of 2" x 12"s.

Carving secrets?:I guess I'll tell you before Mr Benzart the secret killer comes back. I used them ones in the middle

Those four tools are all I've used on it so far.

I love cherry pepsi!

Today's progress:
Did the bottom of the nose, brought down the eye line, moved the ears back a few inches, and did the back of the arms.


Now I have to slant the nose.

Weinerschnitzel time! Gotta go before rolling blackouts...
