I finally got the drum the shade I wanted after a couple more coats of stain:


First two pictures show it closest to the real color. Next one is kind of light:

Looks like I need to run down to the hide store...

In other crafts news, a glaze firing at Babalu's studio yielded me another finished mug. This was the first mug I made, second one to be finished



Here it is in a side by side with mug #2







Finally!...

I know I haven't posted here in quite a while. Have barely posted on TC much at all. But I have been watching the progression of the chairs which came out beautiful! I look forward to planting my ass on one at Frankie's sometime in the spring! This drum is looking very nice as well. I'll try to catch you during a broadcast sometime soon.



Cool Jen. Been wondering where you've been. I've mostly been broadcasting in the day lately, but long winter nights of live broadcasting are upon us. See you there!

You'll have to check my Buzzy Tiki Workout video for some tips on increasing your carving stamina. I rarely get tired anymore.

Great looking piece.



Thanks SN! I was actualy thinking of stretching a bear hide over it. I think it would sound cool to say it's made from real bear.

It's not that it's too much work, it's just that most of the work isn't fun.

These chairs are like spiky high heels: meant to look good at the expense of being comfortable. I couldn't take any picyures with a person in them because as of that post, they were long gone already.

I see that " tryptophan " causes the opposite reaction in you!

That's got to be the record for "all in one replys!"

Rock on!

Give Kiva a big kiss for me! I know she's been lucky to have a great life with you.

I know I haven't posted here in quite a while. Have barely posted on TC much at all. But I have been watching the progression of the chairs which came out beautiful! I look forward to planting my ass on one at Frankie's sometime in the spring! This drum is looking very nice as well. I'll try to catch you during a broadcast sometime soon.



Cool Jen. Been wondering where you've been. I've mostly been broadcasting in the day lately, but long winter nights of live broadcasting are upon us. See you there!

Hey thanks benz. Glad you could find it in all that mess.
Good to hear from you, I was thinking about you the last couple of days while I was out of town. But more about how you came to my mind later...

First, I need to share the non tiki trip I was on the last few days with my friends and family, here on my TC thread.

Zaya and I went to Las Vegas for one of the most highly anticipated events on my calendar this year:

The SASS western regionals at the luxurious Riviera, located right on the famous Las Vegas Strip!

It was an absolute blast! I'm just crushed that it had to end and I'm back home to the real world and my boring life as a Tiki Guy.

The perfect escape from the toils of work it was, with three days jammed full of the greatest music, vending, and shooting that one could possibly imagine.

Here I am getting ready to check in and register:

My SASS name is "Badlands Buzzy"

After I signed in, it was straight to the vending area.

Here I am figuring out what I'm going to vend there next year:

I think I could slap a few of them out... I am also going to make and sell custom covered wagon competition gun carrying carts.

I'm going to reinvest the money I make by carving cigar store Indians and carts into my cache of single action competition rifles and pistols. I cannot wait until they'll let me carry my two loaded revolvers, an over under shotgun, and a repeating rifle in an open hotel lobby for a speed shooting competition

I'd like to start out with a couple of ruger reproductions for the pistols, and then move up to some nice colts later on when I start hitting the national circuit. Since I sight left eyed and am right handed, I think I can do real well utilizing both in tandem in the competition setting. As far as the over under shotgun, that's a no brainer. There so much faster than the traditional double barrel.

When I'm a full time professional shooter, I'l be going against the likes of Spur Roberts and Billy Boots:

I don't dress like those guys. They're more gunfighter in the sticks western style. I'm the Top hat, clean and pressed shirt, pants tucked into my black boots with suspenders and arm garters type cowboy. Basically, a fancy pants yankee looking cowboy. With a covered wagon gun cart...

After a full day of competitive shooting, The Smoked Manwiches set was the perfect ending to a perfect event and a perfect trip to Las Vegas:

I've already started counting the days until next year's event.

Well back to real life now:

That is damn cool! Thanks MadDogMike! Can you show me how to make them so I can fire a few that will say "Trader Buzzy's" on them?

I cannot tell you guys how much I love these "tribute" pieces of me!

I can almost see the museum devoted to my likenesses now...

Of course there would be the CocoJonez:


I envision it in it's own room that looks like the one that Michaelangelo's David is in, but with Bamboo Ben decor instead of marble.

The MadDogMike plate will be there in the collection displayed under glass like the Declaration of Independence is:


Tbirdman had a close to finished pendant version of me a while back too. We'll probably cast those and sell them in the gift shop at the museum

Another piece that was based on me will not be in my museum, but can be seen on public display at Frankie's Tiki Room, located on 1712 West Charleston, in Las Vegas Nevada. Open 24/7/365:

Great job Benzart! It looks just like me!

Hopefully, someday I'll qualify to be in a Tonga Hut art show and I can add some of the ensuing photoshopped flyers of me in my museum too.

Back to reality...
Buzzy Out!
