TIKIG: I'm always trying to keep a lighthearted tone throughout my post so I hope you don't think I was being too defensive in my tone, hostile towards your choice of tool, or overly defensive in my choice of tool. It was just the tone I chose for that particular post.
I get asked this question all the time so I'm glad that you showed people another option. On my follow up post, I just wanted to weigh in why I like the planer better and add facts from my experience to let other people decide which one they like better so they might choose the best one based on all the info that we all contribute. Essentially, both those tools are the exact same thing. They each have two 3 1/4" blades that spin rapidly around a drum. Also, I couldn't find how much that wizard was on the website, could you tell us how much it is, if you know?
Thanks for adding in, Buzzy

Yeah, Cool post Buzzy, I think I'll take planer # 2 today, Hey Hey..
The latest tiki has a strange new twist and slice and I'm sure there is a method to your madness IF Madness is what it is. Either way it is a cool looking tiki and as I said earlier, I am loving watching your progress. Keep on Posting..

Hey Benzart, I have a cordless version of the frond remover to go along with planer #2. Let me know if you want it. I'll even trade it to you for something you make. Maybe a Moari head pendant with gold teeth and a abalone shell bling bling necklace on him that says "DA PLAYER". You know, nothing overstated, yet sublime in its elegance. Keep in touch, Your west coast pal, Buzzy
Hiltiki:



Made two of those one hour slash and burn tikis today too. Will post those ugly things later. Enjoy this one for now.

I looked into buying a log wizard a year ago or so, and the best price I found online was $179.99. I ended up buying the same Ryobi planer as you, Buzz.

The tiki store ran out of my budget line of tikis last week. So,I did two more of them today and will to a few more soon. I guess I'll call them #3 and #4 in the Slash and burn series. Once again, I spent no more than one hour on each one.

started with a couple mexican fan palm stumps

ended with these

in between, all this happened







next one




too windy to finish burning

Mostly chainsaw-Refinements were done with gouges-Ugly but they will sell

My number of days worked on this tiki to actual minutes worked per day ratio is disappointing. Right after I TCB, I promise myself and the whole world that I will work on this Tiki until I pass out tonight.

Okay, I have to go drop off a couple of tikis at the store right now. This always leads to at least one quick and easy job that has nothing to do with carving. So no matter how easy the job is, or how much I will get paid to do it, I will turn it down no matter what. I promised the world that I would carve today and I will keep my promise. I am Buzzy, the carver, and I have work to do...

So if it was my "day off", and I was walking in front of my place of employment, and I should happen to find a pile of money on the ground, and I should have to bend over to pick up the money, then would I technically be "working" and break my promise to the world? Probably not. Then, what if the pile of money was spread out throughout the parking lot and I had to bend over several times to pick it up and walk several feet between each individual piece of money that I needed to pick up? It seems that would technically not be working either. So, if I had to do less physical work than walking around the parking lot and picking up piles of money, then by logical assumption I did not work today, thus I did not break my promise. The important thing is not whether or not I actually broke my promise. The fact that I do not feel like I broke my promise to carve all day today is more important than the if I actually did break my promise. This is true because my feelings are much more important than what the facts may state.
So, after I didn't work for that pile of money that I got at work today, I kept my promise and carved until I passed out tonight. Only tonight was an hour later until I passed out and took a nap. Here is what it looked like when I awoke:

If I cannot fit an entire body down below this freakishly large head(I think I can I think I can I think I can I think), I'm going to plane it off with my ryobi planer and carve "Aloha" on it and call it a day. Oh, man, now my girlfriend's going to take her computer back...and I was doing so well for couple of days. Zaya sweetie, if I didn't say things that pissed people off, then I would have too many friends and I wouldn't have so much spare time to devote all my loving attention to you. So please don't take your computer back. I was joking, like that puppet hand dog guy. I can say anything if I just have a puppet dog on my hand. Hey, I need a puppet...
Puppetmaster Buzzy out!

Dude. You've been out in the hot CA sun too long... or you're sleep deprived.

YEs, I think you have too much time on your hands and I think you need to get a real job. Something like bending over all day long picking up little piles of money sounds like pretty hard work and I think you should look for something a bit easier like sweeping up all the sawdust some carver makes. That sounds about right.

Benzart: Great idea! You got your own broom or should I bring mine with me?

Worked on the mouth last night.




I just need to get this thing done already...
