Really nice cannibal, the little guys' head is great, makes me smile.
How does it feel to be in the "HOF"?

Buzzy, this piece look so complicated and I can't wait to see it finished. Looks like it's going to look fabulous as always.

Today's Sunset:


Happy Holidays!

While I was carving outside today, some old timey planes did a few fly overs:


The weather was just nice enough today to spend some time outside finishing the cannibal:


It's still pretty wet so it will be a while until I sand it.

Before I declared myself "finished," BuddyCat gave it a thorough looking over before giving it his stomp of approval:



It's a pain in the butt to download pictures the last few days so here's a quick update on what was going on around the factory:

There was a storm coming so I had to get ready for a weekend of rain.
Just a hint of a storm on the horizon:


The rain came but wasn't bad enough to require FEMA assistance, this time. I'm still waiting for my relief check for my ripped tarp. Damn government red tape!


Since it was cold and rainy, I moved operations into the "workshop" and did some rainy day activities.
I started by doctoring up a bunch of bamboo poles:


Then I made a sample stock tikibar sign with my newly enhanced bamboo:


And with some scrap I had left over, I made a couple of sample custom sign blanks:



Order yours today!

In other factory news, I took out my old fence the last couple of days and will be replacing it with some 8' x 8' x 2" bamboo panels tomorrow(and the next day...)
Here it is just before the final stages of dismantling:

Bye bye fence, hello bamboo!

It's great to finally be recognized for all my efforts. Now, if I could just get into the "Tiki Guy HOF", I will have then acheived all my highest goals and aspirations in life.

Hey Buzz - cool cannibal, dude!



Thanks LOL. It's going to suck having to wait until I can sand and stain him. I want to see him done NOW!
There were a couple good learning experiences I had on this one and I am planning on doing a larger version of him one of these days.

Right now I have to think about what I want to do next...

Buzzy Out!

Hola Buzzy! Nice cannibal. What color stain are you gonna use? That bamboo fence is looking pretty solid. A few picts of this past weekends camping spot...Lanikuhonua on Oahu.

Sweeet lil' Cannibal Buzz....I sure hope you're gonna do his two brothers? Seeing he's a picture-perfect realisation of the Kon Tiki menu guy, you could also kick him in for the upcoming swap. Would he fit in one of those poster tubes?

I can't compete with Freddie's scenery (palms trees are a little more picturesque than floodlights), but here's another Polynesian sunset for you:

The cannibal looks great Buzzy. He looks like he was a lot of fun. I'm glad Buddy Cat gave him the nod. Doves are yummy aren't they?

I don't know what day it is today, so I have no idea when this recent sunset took place in relation to the present time, nor do I have any knowledge of what the name of that period of time is referred to as in our language:



I had a fun little adventure over at Cammo's studio today. Check it
here.

In other tiki related endeavors:

I made a couple more new signs with a wood background:


And I prepped enough bamboo to supply the letters for many many more signs:


I have one more distinctly different style to assemble still.


In yet still more "Other Projects" updates:


I turned this heavy pile of wood and bamboo...


...into this new fence on the southern border Rancho Buzzy.

It took a lot of tree trimming and trips to Home Depot for the right stuff to finally get it to work.

My eyes haven't adjusted to it yet.

Unfortunately, the new fence didn't get the Buddy Cat nod of approval, because now he has to walk all the way around.

Buddy Cat says: " I was hanging out here BEFORE they had any fences! What's this s#!^ ?"

I have to confess, I fired up the time machine again and looked into your future and saw you start working on one of these in a couple of years from now. Then I jumped another decade into the near distant future and looked very carefully at how you completed it. then I came back to the present and half assed my version of it in a couple of days. I think I may have inadvertently tripped a physics infinity time loop in the process, and you and I may be stuck making these for an eternity...Time will tell.

I'm thinking colonial maple for the hat, golden oak for the body, and dark walnut for the little guy. But I always change my plans at the last second when I stain...

Those pics bring back some fond memories...
Back in the 80's I worked as a kind of security guard and lived in the guest house
on a writer's estate in Hawaii. I got paid real well for doing virtually nothing, I got a nice company car to drive, and I got to have a part time side job. It was a really great time in my life!

Benella and Tduddy: Thanks guys!

Oh! Too bad I used the former Beverly Hills Luau/currently the Crowne Plaza Hut cannibal tikis for reference. Since it wasn't actually inspired by a menu, putting him in the swap would be against the rules, and rules RULE!
Out here they make cell phone towers look like palm trees. I think the next logical step is making all light fixtures look like trees. It's a future I look forward too...

I remember being astonished the first time I beheld that same view with my own eyes. I was on the Mir space station... Oh wait, I was actually watching Frank Mir on "UFC Unleashed" as I was dozing off... Frank Mir's a pretty good announcer...I bet Frank Mir could take Buffy.

It doesn't matter what time it is when you have a time machine. You can make it any time that you want it to be.
Buzzy Out!

Buzz, I haven't checked in a bit, and I LOVE the new cannibal.

For some reason they always end up being my favorites and yours is no exception.

Hey, those rolls of bamboo look familiar.
The fence looks great... It almost looks straight.

Buzzy, I think you gotta watch that cat, he's eating your tikis and He's the Real cannibal here. Been missing any tikis around here?

Hey Buzz Master...

You on vacation?

Maybe that cat slipped you and Kiva some acid and you just haven't come down yet?

It's almost time to make the "Buzz" Mug brother...I think we should make it so that you can drink out of it, and smoke out of it at the same time...straw one end...#@*! in the other :-) Lot's of Bling-Blang-Bling as well....I know that you don't smoke - noooo sir, but I'm sure that someone must have back in the day?

Call ya later...I need to use your burner!

If your off time traveling...well, I guess I'll see ya when I see ya.

It's lonely out here in Space.
