Yesterday's sunset:


Today's:

Santa Anas to continue...

I worked on three different drums today

I finally got the fat drum all cleaned up and ready for the final detail carving

It's all marked and dotted up and ready to go.

It's probably tonight's project

I also cleaned up and evened out the conga drum and rim today:

It's ready for the leg carvings now. They'll be up right after the fat drum is carved

In the early hours of this morning, I put oil on the little drum to finish it up



It's ready for the head. I will probably not do that tonight...

Nope.



Who would you like to eat, then?

I was wondering why my gardener came twice a week, mowed the lawn, houled away the clippings, and never sent me a bill. I guess I should have been tipped off when it grew so high.

The day of the drums beats on...
Buzzy Out!

Today's sunset:

These days, it's getting so I cannot tell one sunset from another.

My plan for the day was to trim the hide for the little drum, soak it, and then apply it to the drum. After I cut it and placed it in the tub, I decided to carve a quick tiki to kill some time. I split one of the logs that I cleaned a couple days ago and chopped into it.
Here he is after a little work:


A little more work done and I redid the lines for the face


Here it is now:


It's pretty much done, except for some stuff I'll take care of while sanding

Thanks Hiltiki. I did a little work on it last night. All I have left are the six panels on the drum to fill in. Here it is now:


Next, I take care of that rawhide soup in my tub...

Sunset:



Tiki Stuff:

I put the head on the drum last night.

Nice new slab of cow side:

I haven't really played it yet. Still waiting for it to dry. Sounds good so far.


I still felt like tearing loose today and carved another little tiki, instead of finishing the fat drum.
Here is an early progress shot


Done.
Here it is now:




And while I was at it, I fixed the mouth on this guy:

Funny you should mention that...Last night I finished the drum head a little bit ahead of schedule and still had some work left in me. I decided to finish one of the mugs I have bagged during my new found chunk of time.When I went to find suitable background tv programming, the 2009 Barrett Jackson auto auction coverage was on. The Pope Mobile was for sale. And it went for cheap...I sat there transfixed for the rst of the evening and put off working in the mud. So yes, I was slacking...If I worked harder, I could afford to buy a used PopeMobile.

38 hours of live auction coverage on the speed channel this year. Two days down, four to go...

We had a change in the sunsets over the weekend:
Sunday:



Yesterday:


It's supposed to rain in the next couple days and get a little bit colder. Hopefully a "little bit colder" means it will be down to 70.




Carving Update:

I tried to carve all the legs on the conga drum in a couple marathon sessions the last day or so. I started by drawing out the bodies of the three and carving one on Sunday night. It took longer to carve the first one, so I finished that one early Monday morning. Before sunset yesterday, I had all three bodies carved and the faces ready for layouts and carving:




After a short rest, I started on the faces


My heart was into it, but my body failed me and I finally collapsed in exhaustion last night and only got two of three faces carved.

I almost carved three 18" full bodied tikis on the drum in less than 24 hours yesterday. I'm pissed that I got tired and couldn't finish it. I hope to have it finished by the start of Taco Tuesday at 3pm. I should have more than enough time.

I usually do not name my pieces, but this one is called "The Rarotonga Conga." It seemed obvious...

Factory Update:
I've still been working on getting all my logs sorted and stacked. The last couple loads I got were just dumped in a big pile wil no room to move and sort them out. They've been sitting there in disarray for a few months now. I finally got a lot done to get them stacked and sorted the right way last week
I have all the short stumpy ones separated from the long and good ones

That stack in the back is 5-6' tall

I have all these to organize still:

Still have a lot to do but at least I don't have to worry about wood for a couple years

I managed to get a lot of good wood out of this. The few I've used have been of superior quality. there's a lot of dogs in the lot too, but they have been disappearing quickly.


Now to carve another face...
Buzzy Out!

Buzz, the drums are wonderful creations!
They will make many happy new owners out there.

I've got some log envy going on over here. What a haul!
It should keep you busy for a while.

You're doing some top notch work... looking at the sunsets and the warm, lush surroundings its not hard to see you're living the life of a Tiki Guy.

I'd trade my basement studio and my cold, dead, snowy backyard for just a couple days carving in your environment.

Well, at least I can look at the pictures.

Today's sunset:



It rained for about 10 minutes, twice today. I was kind of disappointed because the local news had me expecting much more.

I went outside to sand today and it started pouring rain. Since the weather dudes all said it would rain all afternoon, I cleaned up my garage and started sanding out there.


Since I finished sanding later in the day, I figured why not go ahead and stain it too?:

I went for a two tone look

I kept trying to decide if I wanted woodburnings or carved patterns on the drum, but in the end I decided to use the smooth and clean look.

I am now taking the ideal of the island tiki lifestyle to the extreme... Instead of simply having a tiki bar and declaring myself a Tiki Guy, I have transformed my house, yard, and standard of living to that of a typical third world island paradise. Total committment to the tiki island lifestyle on my part, and it's authentic. Trash, dust, sun, heat, palms, pests, poverty, and rampant unemployment... It's a sacrifice, but you can't beat the weather or the lifstyle! Unless you need money...

Just get out here...I have a hut in the back with plenty of logs to carve. Just make sure you go to your doctor first and get the necessary shots for your stay. Might help to brush up on your Spanish too.

Thanks G! It's all a product of my environment!


Some day the formerly rich will come to me for advice on how to live in poverty.
