Yesterday's sunset

Today's merge into dark


Tiki updates:

I warmed up yesterday by stripping a couple new logs. Here is the big one I didn't cut a piece off of:


Then I took the perfect sized chunk from the base of the other log for my next project



Those layout marks mean Peace Out! I mean, take this piece out:


It got dark soon after I did the layout on the log, so I came inside and warmed up by doing another quick pendant on the "Tiki-on-a-stick-on-a-rope.":

one more to go:


Then chopchopchop, off came three Trader joes paper bags full of chips last night


Here is the rough layout today, after a little exterior sanding:


Then I hollowed it out and did some more shaping:


I'm going to try and get all the rough blocking out done on it tonight and then let it set for a couple days while I finish the carving the Ku and (finally) the Lono.

Buzzy, what kind of music was Guitar Guy playing?
"Tiki-on-a-stick-on-a-rope."



set list includes: girl from impanema, Michelle, a bunch of Simon and Garfunkel, a couple rolling stones and a bunch of finger picked renditions of songs that you say to yourself as you listen: I kinda recognize that, but can't figure out what hell it is! My favorite thing about him is that folding footrest thing he uses.
"Tiki-on-a-stick-on-a-rope." You didn't happen to trademark that phrase, did you?

Hell ya!



Been waiting to see someone do one of these lately!

Nice start, if I had some palm I'd give it a go, but all this hardwood would take forever.

You're on a tear Buz.

Yah, it'll be interesting to see how this drum bangs out. I've been inclined to carve one too since I saw a recent post here on TC about the Marq drum. Good luck Buzzy.

Today's sunset:


I worked on the Ku for most of the afternoon today:
I started with the eyes and then started the tongue

Then I did more on the shoulders, chest, and started to block out the headress

Here's the back:

Mouth and headress next...


Here's the progress from last night on this piece:


Hollowed out a lot more now


Faces blocked in:

Legs tapered:

I'll probably put an hour or two into this one tonight to change gears for a little.

Yo Freddie! A drum? Crap! Why didn't I think of that? I originally constructed this with another use in mind...

If there is, I'm looking for it right now. As a matter of fact, I was just hassling a new tree service guy I met yesterday for some more logs...Poor trees!

If I lived in Oceanside, I'd just carve live ones when I run out.

Thanks Lake! I couldn't imagine doing this in hard wood. I smacked the shit out of my chisel holding hand several times whiole doing it. It's nice shade of bruise today. Chisel kept getting caught on the rim too, making for some painful deflections. It did get a little softer about six inches in...

Hey Jungle Trader. I believe the hard part will be the head. Never done a stretched hide head before. Can't be that hard, can it? Oh well, I let you all how I do, even if I fail...

Spermy! Good to see you back here! I just had a Tarot card reading and it said you were definitely in my future...

Right now my future is foody!

Yesterday's sunset started out like this:


and ended up like this:

Glad I stuck around for it. Only down side was I got home after dark.

While I was waiting for my lunch to heat up yesterday, I carved another superfast on a stick with a rope pendant:

Now it's all full




I also did a lot of work on the NuKu:


oops! camera strap...



The next step was the mouth. I say "was" because I took it in last night and finished it. Yeah! I just have to wait for the sun to move a little so I can get some good photos of it. Stay tuned, the sun is moving as we speak...

Two times in two posts is a good start! I'm with you on that one.
In fact, here's another one now:

Now that it has a name, it's definitely art. Look for prints on Marketplace soon!

That won't help. Even though it feels like it's your eyes, it's really in your brain. You need more than bleach. Probably therapy and a few dozen drinks during the course of your day. It's tough, but that's why they call it "rehab."
