Over the weekend, I went to the Tikiyaki Orchestra Lodge show and swap meet to peddle my wares. Here's a shot of me in my vending area:



Best part was that I met a bunch of famous Tiki people, like these guys:


Good times indeed!


I rested and caught up around the house a little bit for a couple days after the show, but yesterday I got back into my usual routine

I got this guy sanded and stained:

He'll be ready for some sealer now.

I don't think I got a picture of him after I put a few coats of spar on:

Tomorrow he'll be loaded up for a Friday morning road trip to his new digs.

I also went back to work at my night job. Here's my boss:

He always yells at me for being so slow and not taking my job seriously. I'm kind of scared of him since he got on this whole trophy head thing. He's been a little surly lately.

I think I had 27 pieces to glaze. I got a good start on it all before the boss' bed time.

I only finished the bird man rock pendant while I was over there, so the boss made me take my job home with me.

At home, I powered out the rest and finished up at about 2:30am.

Hope the boss doesn't see all the overtime I'm accumulating.

Today's sunset comes from the driveway of Babalu's studio:

Ode to Big Daddy.

I dropped off the stuff I glazed last night and made some more mug blanks while I was there
this evening:

I brought these home to finish up over the next couple of days.

Cammo came over today and did some staining of the mask:


Bird's eye view:


He's just about done with it now



I sanded and stained this guy while Cammo was here


The back is hollowed out so that it can be hung on a wall

It will stand up too, but I made it as a hanger.

I also sanded and stained this guy today:

He's carved from a split log and meant to be hung like the other one


I didn't hollow it out, but made a butt instead:

the hanging hardware will fit on the flat square part of the back.

Thanks Polynesiac! It's always great to hear from you. Glad you still stop by once in a while. Hope I run into you soon, now that it's tiki season again.

'Tis the season to be jolly,
Buzzy Out!

Once again Excellent job on the big guy, his Moko is Way Cool. Looks like you kept putting in lines until there was no face left, that's the way!
The short trio looks great too.
You really need to do something about that yard, there just aren't enough logs yet!

Hey Buzzy, your shoelace is untied!

No, really, it really is! Check it! Look!

Really, I'm not kidding! It really is! Hey you'd better tie it before you trip and fall!

That's a great tiki, great work, but just look at your shoelace once! Just look down, c'mon!

No, really! It's untied, I'm not joking, it really really is not tied! It's your left foot! look! That one!

Okay, fine. Don't look.
