Yesterday's sunset:


Here are some progress shots from yesterday:





After what seemed like 12 straight hours of MMA on tv last night, I brought the tiki inside and did a little more work on it. Here it is at it appears now:



He only has one arm so far:

Buzz, bruddah... those cannibals are looking sweet.
Nice little vending spot you've got there, a view and free entertainment!


Thanks Lake! Drop by anytime. If you're in the neighborhood, thatb is. It seems the kids are drawn to the cannibals for some reason. Had some little girl wander up while I was working on it, check it out, and then call her family down from the room to check it out. I almost passed out from glee when she said on the phone, "Hey Mom, you have to get down here,... NOW!(pause)... because there's a TIKI-GUY down here it's totally cool!" That was the first time I was ever called a "Tiki Guy" in public by a citizen. They asked me to start coming down on Fridays from now on as an opening act for the big luau, so maybe the pot will be sweetened with some free grub. I'll have to see what I can get out of that.

Yo Duddy, I can feel the love in the air! Here's some more work that I did on him this afternoon:


This turned out to be a nice piece of wood to work with.




Couple hour break and then I'll get back to it again...
But first, Weinerschnitzel!
Buzzy Out!

Fun doesn't even begin mto descibe the time I'm having. This is what I learned from that movie called Spinal Tap: "Have a good time, all of the time!" That's what I try to do...

I'm too tired to carve any more tonight. I think I'll have fun sitting around instead...
Buzzy Out!

We're having that coastal marine layer thing going on lately. Here's yesterday:


And today:


Tiki update:




I did a good deal of refining of the body of the new KU today.
To start the day,I dug a neck out from under the chin, narrowed the upper chest, and defined the shoulders


then the arms, waist, legs, and inside of the knees were improved slightly


and lastlty, the hands, back of the legs and feet were worked on too


Daily dog photos:

Backlit Ringo:


Sleepy Kiva:


To carve or rest, that is the question...
Buzzy Out!

To reply to your comment a few pages back, yeah.......Northpark SUCKS(been offline for a couple of days for the move and hospital visit), but the show was great. Here's a couple more of you and Zaya~




And here you are with MISTER Mad Dog 20/20, the official, Cool-aid flavored turpentine.


Good show, old man, good show! Next month, I'm planning a Beach Party in Watts and I have one carving space left.......you in?

Yesterday's end:


Yesterday was also carve at the hotel day. They moved the venue to the other lawn this time.

I took the eastern corner


I did a smaller set up this time because there was some real gusty wind


I was right next to the guitar dude this time


I didn't do much mallet carving, instead I spent most of my time carving little pendants in the chair:


In the background, the old timey Mark Twain boat.
I sold that tiki there yesterday. Now I have to finish it.

I think that boat is called the Bahia Bell.

Before I went down there, I cut a couple strips of basswood and pre drilled some holes. the plan was to knock out some pendants. I planned on spending about 15-20 minutes on each one. Nothing fancy. Just some quick and cheap hand carved one offs.

I was able to knock out five while I was there:

I think they look neat on the stick.
I'll cut them apart after I do the last two and sand them a little and stain them.

Im definitely in! You know how I thrive in what they euphemistically refer to as a multicultural environment! Thanks for posting the shots of my brief carving adventures out in da hood too.

What will today bring?
Buzzy Out!

"Just some quick and cheap hand carved one offs."

Buzzy's becoming the local carver, the guy people talk about when they go back to Wisconsin!

"You wouldn't believe it, Rob. This guy sits there on the beach all day, carving these strange little Tiki things. He said they're Good Luck cause they have 'Mana'. Mana Schmanna, the wife and I bought six! They were a steal at 185.00 each!"

Buzzy, what kind of music was Guitar Guy playing? I can kinda guess by lookin at him!

I like the "tiki-on-a-stick" idea. If you leave them stuck together, and thread a cord thru the top one, you could wear it. "Tiki-on-a-stick-on-a-rope."
