Thanks surfintiki. I'm using tools from the micro and mini
flexcut palm chisel sets and two different hook knives. To clean it up after, I use the dremel with a couple mini metal sanding bits.

Only if I don't have to buy any new tools to make it.

I felt like doing a little carving today. I liked the look of the wood on the knife handle with the walnut stain on it so I wanted to do another pendant with that wood and stain combo.

I picked a Cook Islands Fisherman's god as inspiration.

Here it is drawn out:


Roughed out


A little more definition:


The face and further refinements


Finished carving and sanded:


Stained:

It's 5 1/4" tall and 2 1/4" wide.

Here's a side view of it:

Most of it is 1/4" to 3/8" deep.

Thanks Buzzard. Carving little guys means you needa whole bunch of new tools...

Tomorrow, more of the same...for now,
Buzzy out!

I missed this a couple of days ago:

(To be executed in my singing voice to the tune of happy birthday)
Happy Anniversary, to me.
Happy Anniversary, to me.
Happy, An-i-ver-sar-y to me,
For two years on TC!

Clap clap clap clap!


In other tiki news:

It's molding time...

Those boxes with the three pieces in them will have dividers between them that I have to do when I clay them in.
I just have to wait for another batch of silicone to arrive tomorrow: 24 hous after that and it's GO time!



I need to make some tikis, any volunteers?




Oh yeah! Another four trees came down today. Thanks for voluntering guys!
This was my haul from this morning:



Looks like a lot of work before I can get to work...

Occasionally, when i'm hook knifing a piece, I ll say "Damn, why cant this blade curve the other way? It'd make this cut real easy." Then I struggle with how I'm to execute the cut I want with what I have. Today, my salvation arrived from Warren cutlery:

It's like getting six new carving knives for only $20.55, shipping included!

Now I have to use them!
Buzzy Out!

No Booty, but look what he has instead.
Webcam is here. I found it in a bag in the garage. If I'm working tonight, I'll log on and say Hi!

Funny, I was actually thinking about how you said there weren't many tikis that swing low when I was sanding the manhood down. I think I'll cast it in both "Standard" and "Missionary" versions...

holy truckload-of-tree-trunks buzzman!!!!!

that's one good looking front lawn!

so whats the plan with all these resin tiki bling things you are going to be making? Make sure to post pics of the process - looks interesting.

Did I say... damn you work fast too? so hard to keep up with Buzz the human tiki-making machine.

I did another pendant last night:

Inspired by the lovely artwork of the Marquesas islands


Kiva was there to lend a hand if needed


Most of the carving done


Sanded. It's about 3 1/2" by 2 1/4".


Stained


It's only about 3/16" deep


Being so shallow, it was a difficult task to make the hole for the pendant cord

Just barely had enough room.

Hey Harro! I plan on amassing a giant quantity of tiki pendants to be used as currency when the world economies collapse very soon. Investing in tiki is the new investment "bubble".
It's not that I work fast, it's just that I never seem to stop working. At least I like my job. Except for that damn early morning commute...

Waiting for the UPS guy,
Buzzy Out!
