Today's sunset:


the sun was real bad for progress pictures today. This is the only one without glare spots and shadows:


At the end of the day, i had both bottom sides finished, the rim cleaned up and levelled out, and the drum part ready for decorating:






I have to let that one sit for a couple days while I finish these up:

I hope to do the legs on both tomorrow.

Hey Thomas! we've been carving close to every day from about noon to sunset lately. Lots of cameo guest appearances dropping by now and again. Just call me the day before you want to stop by. A Cherry Pepsi gets you in. I'll have a Brady idol over here for you when you show up.


One day at a time...
Buzzy Out!

The Tiki has apparently been swiped!

We're going back with a full crew and seriously nail a Tiki down using cement, chains, pickaxes, and lots of carriage bolts. It's a giant project years in the making. A two trip canoe project. It's just like Episode B of a 2-part Buzzy's Island show.

We thought the seagull was going to protect it, but he chickened out.

That doesn't surprise me. My money was on it being swiped within 3 days of placement. I know it would not have lasted that long here! Next time set up some bear traps in the sand around it.

A recent sunset:


When I left you guys last, I was just about to carve the details on the two drum looking tables. I'll start with my progress on those, and then mention other projects I've been working on since my last post.

I started by carving the legs.


Then I carved the rest:


Johnny came by to do some carving too:

Sneak preview of Johnny's NuKu:




After carving the first table, it was second table carving time:


Ringo and Kiva kept me company while I was working on it:


After a visit from a good friend of mine, and spontaneous reunion of old coworkers, I got the table finished:


Here they are all carved up, waiting to be sanded:


After many hours of sanding, I stained them and painted the drum heads



Next step is some rope wrapping



In between all that, I was also working at the factory on my
CocojoesBrady Bunch Ripoff idols

We're adding a second shift to meet the intense world wide demand

Another project I was called upon to do was pendants for a party coming up soon.
Here they are in the early carving stages, while still in the siamese twin phase

OOoops! I meant the conjoined tikis phase.

They were deconjoined and then sanded.The next step was to burn in the face tattoos. Here's my burning setup with a Brady Bunch idol looking over me to tempt fate:


Now burned:


And with some stain:


The pair


They match the two big Maori guys I did last month



The pair, all ready for for molding...


and now waiting under the mold material:


I'll be back to answer the last couple days worth of comments in a little bit. I need to clean up some of the mess I made while doing all this stuff over the last few days.
Buzzy Out!
