Thanks, Buzzy!!!



Buzzy, when you brought this guy yo the chop, I thought it was a real Hawaiian swap-meet find. I had no idea that you had carved this one yourself, or I'd have basked in the presence of it's greatness. GREAT little guy, man!
As far as ripping motherfuckers off for their ideas, I say they can lick my junk.......unless they're into that and in that case, I'll say nothing to them.

I am rather behind on everyone's recent posts. This one you did is delicious! It's got so much "old" character. How did you do it?! No, really!

That leetle guy with the cards sticking into his head is amazing up close!

Hey Buzz, thanks for having me in as Carver of the Weaklings, I don't deserve the honor.

Buzzy has this killer set of 1/4 round test stained palm chunks, two stains per chunk. It was like going into a candy store with a pocket full o'change.

Have you posted pics of the testers?

Laytah.

re. Sven look-a-like; I'm part German, it's in the blue jeans.

And just got me some of that English Chestnut stain, WOW it's killer stuff. Looks more like aged mahogany, but lets the grain show through. Just did 2 coats and I'm not wiping it off, just letting it sit for a few days and will sand off areas for an aged look...

I vote 'gunstock' and 'english chestnut' the Tiki stains of the year.

All we need is one clear day of the sun hitting the horizon
Thursday:

Friday:

Saturday:

Today:

Aww Crap! It's supposed to be clear this week. Stay tuned!

I started a new little stand up ring last Friday. Here are some in progress shots:

Gathering the tools and materials phase:


Drawing phase:


Rough out carving and removing it from stock piece phase:



Initial sanding and detail preparation phase:


I made some mold boxes and am preparing to do some resin castings of some of my recent smaller pieces

I had to make these type of boxes for two rings. I'll seal them off with next and will have molds without the rings.

A combination of sanding and wiping away the stain to create the high and lowlights. I used red oak stain.

That's the nicest thing anyone has ever said about my work! Thanks Billy! Someday I actually hope to see one of my pieces at the swap meet. After I'd inquire about the price, I'd yell at the seller about it being too high, and say it looks like it was carved by some haole kook! Then I'd go have lunch at the snack bar...Ummmm! Chili fries!

Ug! this post took forever! I need to go back to doing hourly updates...
Buzzy Out!

It very well may have arrived on Friday, but I took the day off so I wasn't at the office to get it. I'm sure it'll be there tomorrow morning. It'll be a great way to start the week!

Today's sunset comes with a very special announcement:


Contest time!

Today starts day #1. You have until Monday morning to get your entry in


Contest ends when the sun sets for the first time on the horizon north of that big building on the right of the photo.


Two chances to win: Number of days, including today, it will take for the sun to clear the building
and
The day(month and #) it will clear the building
(pick different days to incease your odds!)

After a person picks a day or number, that day and number are eliminated from the pool.

Enter before next Monday, when I drag myself out of bed and log on to TC.

Contest starts....NOW!
