Have I won anything yet? Where is my chocolate brass knuckle tiki mug pendant keychain? Why have I not seen the House of Buzz up lately? Who in the hell mows their lawn at a time like this? Where are my pants?

I believe that today is day number 19 in the number of days contest. Will Robin continue the losing streak? Tune in tomorrow...

Yesterdays sunset:



Today's sunset:


Getting close. Not close enough for Harro.


On to tiki related news:
I started another four knuckle bling ring last night. Here it is drawn out, just prior to carving. Each square is one quarter inch:

The back was all drawn out too:

I like to leave a handle to hold on to when I work on smaller pieces. In this case, it's about two feet long. Plenty of wood to get a good grip on. And, the tiki in the background says "Hi."

After a little carving;

After more carving;

Here it is now after a little bit of sanding:

It's just about ready to come off the log

I still have to detail it and carve out the ring part.

Technically, it wasn't grass any more: It was chaparral.

Robin and Harro: Good luck tomorrow! And sorry...

It's getting darker by the hour...Looks different already since that post. I was originally going to char it, but changed my mind and wanted to stain it with golden oak, but now I think I'll let it set and clear coat it. It's getting a real nice red tone to the darker grain.

What have YOU been up to? Hibernating for the winter?I was wondering if we needed to send out a search party. Answering your questions: No, but we (you included)are all winners in life. In production-You can still prepay for it though. Lost the camera when I cleaned my house a couple weeks ago-Damn clean house! I didn't mow the lawn-I created a fire buffer zone between the fence and my house. No more burn danger! And finally, I forgot.

Currently waiting for rain to water my lawn...
Buzzy Out!

We were driving right in front of Buzzy's house on Hwy. 5 JUST as that sunset happened. I kept looking over to the left to see if Buzzy was up there camera in hand, while driving and looking at the sun at the same time. Called him later to ask if he'd snapped it, and sez Buzz

"Yup. Got it."

Good one, B Man. Love those purple Easter sunsets. May the sun never set on your karma.

thanks Cammo. Here's the photo I snapped moments after you called:



Fireworks for the first time in a while at SeaWorld tonight. By Wednesday, they will have a petition to have them banned because they scare dogs from PB to Point Loma. I think the dogs should toughen up.

Hooray for Seaworld fireworks!

Sunset:

Clearly no winner yet. Soon, very soon...

The ring got cut off the log Easter Island style

I also started shaping the ring part


I made this this afternoon:


All power tools!

It was too dark in my house this evening to carve the little details on the ring, so I did a quick carving on another piece of wood 4WD gave me. I cut about a 5/8" wide sliver off a 2"x 2"x 12" stud yesterday and set about to carve a relief pendant on the end of it. I wanted to do something quick, so I decided to do the logo tiki I used on my toolboxes. Here it is:

The pendant part is` 2" x 4" x 5/8". Still needs a little touch up and some sanding.


The best part about this logo tiki is that it is a knife handle:

The knife blade is 7.5 inches long and is modeled after a WWII Navy issue combat knife

I want to take this to GMANS and clean a buck with it, if I can't just sneak up behind it and slit its throat and kill it with it.

I wonder if I could make a Tiki Gun?
Buzzy Out!

Yeah, that Tiki Knife is the coolest thing I've ever seen on TC. It can go with your fork & spoon set.

Next up - Buzzy carves a Tiki Chisel.
