Welcome back to the world of the living Buzzy, it Looks like you have been a busy-buzzy after all.
Love Mops, don't clean him up. Love the clean look your tikis are getting too!

I just keep on keepin' on...

Here's a little update of crap I got going right now:

I burned this guy and have put a couple coats of spar on him:


I've also finished putting enough coats on three others, parts of which can be seen in this picture, and some more bamboo upgrades ready to go out:

Todays projects include another custom sign and sanding and staning a couple more little tikis.

That little dog comes in real handy as a rag too. Perfect size

Those tikis look clean because there isn't much carving done on them. Just a line and some fake shadows here and there. As for Mops, thankfully he's self cleaning:


I put that picture there becuase Zaya was scared after seeing that last one.

See Zaya, Ringo's just fine!

More work now,
Buzzy Out!

All of the new stuff looks great, Buzzy.


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!



That right there was some funny shit, man.
I blasted my back out on Fathers day, hoisting a fire-plug stump, so my truck is still loaded and in the carport. It will probably stay there until I move to Lemon Grove next week!!

I wrapped up a couple more tikis in the last couple of days:

The Mainlander finished:


The Buzzatay finished:


The Beachcomber finished:



I am also in the process of giving this guy a nice golden tan:



Meanwhile,

Kiva sleeps:


Ringo rests:



And I continue on...

Another custom sign:

Different, new style for this one.

Hand crafted letters!

And I thought it smelled like I stepped in a slider on the way into your studio yesterday. I guess it's best to hang out over there from Friday to Sunday, give or take a few hours...



Off to work!
Buzzy Out!

Cammo once referred to it as "living with an insane person."

I said having a puppy is like "living with an insane dwarf", or should have said it anyway.

Living with a Weenie dog is like living with an insane person. Living with a Jack Russell is like living with a CRIMINALLY insane person.

We'll start things out with a sunset:


and then move on to the tiki stuff...


The stretched out mug guy is done:


These three guys are in various stages of the staining process.

They should be ready to be sealed tonight

I wanted to make one of the muggies that I carved to look as much like the mug's glaze job as possible. I tried a new techinique of staining it:


The eventual results:


Recently, Cammo made the first batch this year's line of
his custom hats and posted them on Marketplace. Babalu and I were talking, and I mentioned how much I liked them. Babalu agreed and said he actully tried to buy one from Cammo, but Cammo wouldn't sell him one. I had a similar experience in trying to get a hat too. Anyway, Babalu and I got each other all fired up on the idea of having our own custom tiki hats, be they from Cammo or China. So, I went to the swap meet today and bought a cheap life guard hat and and did a custom Cammo inspired tiki makeover on it.

From several feet away, with sqiunted eyes, you can barely notice the gaps in quality between Cammo's hats, and my own knockoff version.



I think this one will be the Buzzy Signature Model Tiki Carver's Hat.




Some of the details:

A resin Maori sliding chin clasp so that the hat will stay on when carving in high wind situations:


A Head-Tiki tapa hat band.

Unlike Cammo's hand stitched and fitted hat bands, mine are just torn strips hot glued until they don't move anymore.

And unlike the fancy sewn hidden seams Cammo has on his hats, I just glued another resin pendant overvthe seam to hide the ends:


I think I did a great job on it, and I have good taste, so it must good.

I'm working on one for Babalu too. It will be similar to mine, but it will have that personal Babalu "tiki" touch:

Wabbit ears!

I've been getting a lot done, but I cannot take all the credit for it. Since Ringo has been visiting this weekend, I ve been having him do the sealing of my tikis for me after I sand and stain them.
Here he is on the job:

He does a pretty good job, but...


I worked him so hard, he got a repetitive motion work related injury. Now I have to start a damn worker's comp case on him. I hate paperwork and now my premiums will go up! One step forward, two steps back...

I hope it's a stencil of those Moais so that I dont have to measure and scale another one of your photographed pieces off my computer screen. If it isn't, thanks, and I'll take a stencil too, since you are all caught up in he spirit of giving.

I wearing my new hat right now!
Buzzy Out!

Toss that hat on the barbeque for a few more minutes and she's DONE!

... but Cammo wouldn't sell him one."

Hey, I said I'd make him a custom one! But if you funny boys are gettin' all huffy about it and starting a hat knockoff shop based in Tijuana, hey, who's complainin', I'll probably be working fer YOU in two months.

I'm going to have Cammo custom up Babalu's Sunday go to meeting hat because Cammo's got the big daddy skills, and I'm going to have the Buzz Master fix up my "knock off" carving hat...I love it Buzzy expecally the hot glue polking out around the band! If we put a little tin foil on the end of those ears I might really be able to contact my people in space. I could mentally talk to my fellow space hippie buddies and carve at the same time...well yeah!

Hey Buzzy, don't forget to cut eyeholes in that hat...



... then you can look like a Japanese animation sidekick.
