Buzzy, how to you prepare those bamboo pieces? Is it just a few coats of polyurethane?

If yesterday was the longest day of the year, then it's all downhill until next spring. Post longest day of the year dusk shot:




With summer, comes an update for those of you who were wondering what's up at the factory these days.
Last month, the Tiki production division realized record sales. The month of June started with a frenzy of production activity to build up stock.



I had spent the winter holed up inside, working away on small stuff, researching traditional oceanic arts. With the days warm and long, a ready supply of logs, I embarked upon a mid century poly pop focus of larger scale.
Here's some works that reflect that focus in various stages of production:


Inspired by the "x" mug



Inspired by the peanut mug


Inspired by the Beachcomber and polynesian village menu tiki





Salt shaker Maori:


Stretched out version of a mug that I forgot what it was called


Buzzatay:


Mainlander:




Angular stirrer stick tiki:


Two more six footers to get rid of less than perfect logs:


That takes care of the carving stuff.

Not to be outdone, the custom sign department met and exceeded its sales target for the month:










And, the bamboo enhancment production team has been pitching in too:

One more order awaiting delivery


It's been a very productive month. More to come...

Buzzy Out!

Buzzy,

I'm sorry the winter was tough on you, but I am glad you were able to continue your research. I am happy that the carving, sign making, and bamboo departments have exceeded your projected earnings for this quarter. Must be the research.

Buzzatay is too kewl.

-Gman

Vote Buzzy for Change in 2008! Go Buzzy GO!

Glad you're whacking those out, ignoring those polynesian originals and going for the stretched-out-mug motifs. (That Beachcomber one stained up real nice!)

We'll start to notice that sunsets are now moving south on the horizon every day. Only a few more months until it sets on the ocean and behind the bay. Here is the last speck of today from the far north:

the movement of the sun reminds me of sunset based contests and that makes me think I need to start and finish HoKU's sunset prize before I have the next contest. I'd better hurry up...

My ultra happy moment came today when I purchased this 10" draw knife for $10 at the swap meet:

I celebrated by stripping a big old log! I hope the ryobi doesn't get jealous. It's real nice.

In other tiki news: I put another coat of spar on these guys today:

I ran out of spar after I did these two. I wanted to do more, but was so hot that I couldn't even look for my car keys to go to the store and get more. I'm hoping tomorrow I'll have the fortitude to venture out of the house for much needed supplies.

My good friend Cammo once referred to it as "living with an insane person."
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, once again we have a special guest joining in on the action at the House of Buzz for a few days. It's Zaya's dog Ringo!

A special House of Buzz welcome to a "special" dog!

I'm glad to have him around because his long hair makes for a good broom.


The first job I ever had was in a liquor store's deli. We had this gross old mop that didn't actually remove the dirt, it just distributed it over the floor evenly so that the tiles appeared the same brown color when they dried. I always remember how filthy, stinky, and muddy the mop was.
I nicknamed Ringo the "Twin Oaks Market deli Mop"

He looks just like that old deli mop! I don't know how I'm going to clean him up. I think I need help. Hey babalu, how do clean a dirty hippie?...Oh yeah, you don't.

Buddycat isn't down for the whole Ringo situation yet, so he's been spending his time in the front yard watching over my growing collection of aac blocks (which will one day become several Bowana inspired Moais) :



TDuddy: thanks man! Enjoy your summer, and remember, always wear sunscreen!

The toughest part of this winter was the sense of disappointment I had in my own government, or more specifically, the Feds! I work very hard trying to become rich so that I can pay higher taxes and help everyone out, and when I'm in dire need, that damn FEMA gives me nothing but the runaround on my claim for my tarp that was ripped in those winter storms. The injustice!

We are currently experiencing a tiki deficit out here. I'm just trying to fill that void.

If it wasn't for inflation, I'd be lighting my cigars with $100 bills instead of the $50s I'm using now.

I'm actually pissed because with all the extra overtime, it kicked me into the next higher tax bracket with a higher tax rate, so I actually got less money than if I only worked a regular workweek. Oh the irony of success!

All economic indicators point to a "bubble" in the current mug market. I'm just providing a safer investment opportunity for those who do not want experience the catastrophic losses in value of their mug collection investment portfolios when the bubble inevitably bursts.

Yeah, I'm ripping off some some pretty solid sources these days. It's like playing a Bob Seger song when you're a covers band: Slam Dunk!

Workin' on my night moves!
Buzzy Out!
