Not quite....
I took this picture of the sunset yesterday, but...


there wasn't enough day left for the update picture.

That was all I had yesterday, so I waited until today to post all that.

And now ,Today's sunset:


Looks like the sky was raining fire


I have the table that looks like a drum all blocked out now:


I made the legs round because I think that tables should have round legs:

I'll let it dry out a few days before I do the all detail carving

In the meantime...

I managed to move him back into my work area today. Tomorrow I will do a little more work on the face and start sandinhg him.

I used a set of small log rollers to get him from my driveway to my backyard by myself. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be.

Ever catch a "Green Flash" from your place? The latest sunset looked perfect for one.



I've seen a green flash only three times at sunset. I always heard people talk about them and could never imagine what they were talking about. I finally saw one for the first time right after I moved here. It was totally crazy. Every time I've seen one, I've been wearing sunglasses. I think those help. Usually there's just enough fog and clouds out there that those green flashes don't happen.

Yeah. Here's the basswood piece that I learned the hookknife from him with.

I never finished the face details on my side. At the time, I wanted to get a little better first, so i did a couple practice pieces. Then the couple pieces turned into a whole bunch and I never got back to it.

Here, jabtiki works on a tiki pole carving:


Patrick came back to work on his first solo piece:


Cammo made an appearance too:


Kiva was right in the middle of things all day:


Patrick's finished piece:



I worked on the face and sanded the big guy today


He's just about ready to mark all up



Buzzy Out!

That was a fun carving session - as long as you keep the gate closed so Kiva doesn't get out you can have a pretty good time chopping at Buzz's.

Kiva, by the way, has a great casual way of gliding past you slowly (avoiding eye contact) and slipping out the gate. Once outside, she seems to know exactly where she's going, and ambles down the street slowly. She looks like an old lady escaping from a retirement home. It's really hard getting her back in the yard, she has that "Do I KNOW you?" attitude when you try shoving her back in the direction of the house.

Almost got that mask done.

Double Post!

Hey Buzzy, any chance you could take a long-range telephoto snap of "Buzzy's Island"? I've been Google-Earthing it and you're right, it's a strange crescent shaped lost island in the middle of Mission Bay. I can even make out the lone garbage can at the NE side!

Anybody in for a Three Hour Tour Chop to Buzzy's Island?

Here you go cammo:

It used to be a much smaller and a solid round shaped island. Then I think for Sea World to get approval for another parking lot and Splash Mountain, they had to increase the ratio of open space to leased/developed land on the bay. So, they made that island like a sand atoll to make more overall open acreage. Now Seaworld can continue on its mission to be the cutting edge research facility they always claim it to be.

Nice work on your latest Buzzy. Looks like things are really happening at
the House of Buzz. Now forget about the sunsets and keep working on the
Maori feller.

These islands fascinate me. Right out Buzzy's back door is a view of Mission bay, which has all these little teeny atols (manmade) that are just sitting there.

This one, "Buzzy's Island", actually is crescent shaped with an amazing lagoon in the middle, perfect for swimming or landing a boat. Wonder if you can dive for pearls?

Is San Diego the FREAKIN' GREATEST?



Why not canoe out to one, I got a canoe, BBQ up a pig and chop all day?

and . . .

.

.


NICE.

How about Today's sunset AND some Maori guy work:
First:


And next:

After a little afternoon break, I went back to the doing the face. Here are a few more "during the process" of shots

Just after finishing the chin, around the lips, and under the eyes

One swirl done on the cheek



Finished the cheeks now

More swirls and designs going to the ears



End of the day...

Top of the head and edge of design all finished up


I still have the ears, toes, shoulders, and legs to do. And sanding again...

I had a friend who used to have "Island Takeover" parties there every year. They even printed up thirts for it one time. Basically, they'd all run boats back and forth all day from cown point, ferrying people and booze to the island and back. I bet they have made it "protected habitat" since then...

Almost done now...by this time tomorrow, I should be complaining about having to do sanding and staining.

"I had a friend who used to have "Island Takeover" parties there every year. They even printed up thirts for it one time."

Yeah, it would be even cooler to have printed up shirts for the event!

It doesn't seem to be marked with any "protected habitat for the goonie-buboonie birds" or any such egg-hugging crapola. I'm going there Monday morning, and planting a Tiki Treasure Chest of special Lost Islander Swagola. Official Tiki Treasure Maps to locate the hidden riches will be available to anybody who buys me a drink on Tuesdays at Bar Pink.

Anybody in for the Three Hour Tour? NOPE? Fine then! Mebbe I'll take pictures, mebbe not!

"Cam; I'm down for Mission:"Tiki Island take over" Take some rafts over, chop, and stake up a tiki."

That had crossed my mind - what about digging a tiki in deep and leaving it's head sticking out there...
What about planting a few small coconut palms on the island, too?

I mean, how cool is that island???
