Sunset from a couple days ago:

These days, they all look the same...


July Factory update:

The Factory got a little bit cleaner over the weekend:


I finally did the last section of my bamboo fence yesterday. Complete with Buddy Cat secret entry point:

I have to wait until Mops visits again to frame it out so I can make sure he can't squeeze out. He's a skinny runt and just might fit through there...


Now on to Tiki stuff:
I did some more staining on this guy:


Here he is with his buddies after I stained in the dark line details:



One more spar coat on each of these and then they're done:


Speaking of done, here's one more finally finished:



...and this guy was just sanded and stained

See, these are "custom knockoffs," that means they are like Cammo's hats now, and I cannot sell it to you. Yo0u have to come find me at Oasis, and if it fits comfortably, then you can buy it. If you just want a hat to wear right now, well I have an idea:

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.



Actually, Babalu was looking to go to the far east for this one. We'd love to have you aboard once it gets going. We think it may work well to do it this way:
You design a top notch primo hat like the
Night in New Guinea, and hand it off to me. I'll find a way to cut the materials costs down from about $90+ to about $6, and cut the production time down from two days to about an hour, and then I'll make a prototype of it. After that, I'll pass the cheaper version to Babalu, who will have them made in China for $1.25. When they come back, it will be your job to make the fancy tags and cool names for our finished products. It's a big goldmine just waiting to be dug up...

I feel like making some chips and sawdust today...


and after lunch, I think I'll carve some.

Oh,I crack myself up!

BUZZY!!! GROG wanted to post GROG 2000th post on your thread, but GROG accidently post it on one of Humuhumu's threads. So, hopefully GROG can post #3000 on your thread if GROG live that long.

A sunset:



Tiki stuff:

A few more tikis are all finished now

Done



Done



Done



Done



Still drying, will probably be done tomorrow


I made my own sign over the weekend:

It will sit on top of two vertical bamboo poles(not pictured), and go in front of a hut. Someday I hope to expand to something like this:


Couple details:
I'll lure the freespending parrotheads in with the bird on the perch

Here's the Tiki Guy lure on the other side


I came home over the weekend and felt something was amiss. things just were not right.
I searched high and low, and found a sign on one of my tikis:


It was signed

and marked

Crap! I missed a visit by Babalu!

However, as sad as I was to have missed Babalu, I had my hands full with that dirty Mops fellow:

That boy just ain't right!

I can make that happen. I'll have to talk to my hat supplier when the swap meet opens this weekend and then go from there. I have a special innovation in mind for my next foray into the tiki carvers hat that I make. That would be cool if you wore one of my hats while you carved. Then other carvers who want to carve like you but cannot, can at least look like you when they carve. All the pieces of the puzzle are now falling into place...

Thanks Duddy! Buddy cat appreciates the convenience of his new door a great deal. Good neighbors make great fences, so I guess I'm a great neighbor now, and I have a great fence. Who was to know that old saying was the truth!

Hang out and you can be view number 200,000 on my thread instead. That's almost as cool...

Midweek heat wave coming. Time to go nocturnal.

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...



Well you'll be happy to know that while Ringo was out on worker's comp he made the most of his time and decided to go back to school. After weeks of hard work and dedication......

He graduated!


He even got a diploma.


He told me he's updating his resume, and to let you know that he'll require a pay raise when he returns to work in the Tiki Factory.

I had my "Grand Opening" today:

The sign should have been higher, but we forgot a very important installation tool. OOPS!
A little string got it on the hut, at least

Can't beat the location.

Turns out the low sign was a blessing in disguise, because it provided shade for my carving area:


Here is a staged photo of myself in the carving area, wearing my official Tiki Carver Guy outfit and hat:


I played the role of Tiki Missionary and Ambassador today. I met people from all over the world, including Australia, Germany, and Los Angeles. More importantly, I endlessly preached the the gospel of tiki to all of them. My influence in a few short hours today will eventually reach 4 different continents. I will now claim to have a wider influence on the tiki revival than Sven. I'll recognize him for his efforts, but he is basically preaching to the converted with his tomes. I, however,am performing a Tiki Reconquista of the savages and the ignorant. On another note, here's a picture of my work area while I took a little break:


I got this much done in a couple hours of carving and socializing:

Tornhalo's back! You must have one or more of the following:

ESP,
A Time Machine,
or
Secret Insider Information.

Which one is it?




It was a busy week down at the store. Glad I have tomorrow off.
Buzzy Out!
