Those poles are cool, but I would worry about rot. You gotta have a way for water to get out from under those poles or something. The guy near here who does lots of large bears and stuff installs his outdoor carvings on small pipes laid down. That gives a numimal contact point for water to get in and a space for water to flow out and air to get in and dry it out. What are doing next to seal that off or whatever? I would hate to see those go south from rain!

Today is face log day!


I'm going all power tools on this one. Got about 30 minutes into it at this point. Spending WAY too much time on it...

Swanky: As soon as I find out what this "rain" stuff you mention is, I'll tell the concrete guy to look out for it. I think I heard an old timer talk about rain one time, but I don't know anyone around here who has ever even heard of it. Is rain European? I've never been to Europe because my ancestors left it a long time ago because it sucked so bad. Actually, the concrete guy has it well under control. He's mounted many outdoor tikis in this harsh Southern California climate. It's hard to see in the first picture, but there are rebar pegs sticking up ever so slightly that the base is actually sitting on. It's also pretty far back under that overhang, and the rain has never got under there yet. It's like a jet stream thing. He's also going to add more concrete to seal them off...

Making tikis and working on my tan!
Buzzy Out!

I'm going to try that too!


Done! (except those little uneven spots on the nose that I'll fix later tonight.) Still got 5 hours until I run out of today, so I should have enough time.

Buzzy Out!

Other than taking a nap, I couldn't think of a better way to spend the afternoon:






To sand or burn: that is the question.

Buzzy Out!

Sand or Burn?

Whatever the market will bear! What's actually more popular in the Land of Tiki (Where Olde Tymes There Will Not Be Forgotten) - Burning?????

You can call him the Chili-popper.

I was looking at what the rain had done to my back yard, and I thought, "Good Lord. It's worse than Buzzy's! Is that even possible?"


Those are my random thought for the day. Please resume your carving activities.

Couple of days ago sunset:

Hey, those are original "two trees" from the first contest. That means no more sunsets on the water for a while. Hello summer! Holla up people, it's tiki season! Wabbit season too!

Today:



GET YOUR CONTEST ENTRIES IN NOW! THE DEADLINE IS IN MERE MOMENTS

Here's the latest ring with some deft on it:


Size 7.

Cammo, Tiki-Kate,GROG,Cammo, and HOKU : I got a nice new mapp gas setup at the swap meet today for a more than reasonable price. I'm just going to go hog wild and burn the shit out of everything now. No more diligent sanding, no more staining, no more nothing but char. Then I'll do a little sanding. And if it's done after that, I'm going to walk around my yard and just burn stuff randomly. Except the grass, it's looking good these days!

Speaking of grass:
Tiki-Kate: That's a carvers yard you got there. Looks like mine, babalu's, and 4WD's yards. Our motto should be something like: " Tiki Carvers: We work IN our yards, not ON our yards."

My name is Buzzy, and I work IN my house!
Buzzy Out!

April 2nd. 28 days.

Master B, I've named my lawn mower "Lightning" after one of the most power forces in nature...Though lightning strikes 8.6 million times a days somewhere on the planet, the odds of it actually hitting my house are about 3,000,000 to 1.

March 23rd...
