Tiki5-0: I have been waiting for a long time to see this one too. Cannot wait! Merely hours away...

In the meantime, I took a break from sanding and made these stickers for another tiki

Then I put them on the tiki

This tiki will be used in a kindergarten class to teach the "T" sound

I was going to carve all this stuff in, but then it was decided that after this was done in the classroom, the words would not make much sense, so they would be made as a temporary feature


If you think it is cool that I am doing this for the youth of today, I want to clear something up: I am not doing this for the youth of today. I am doing this for the tiki customers of tomorrow. It's kind of like big companies "branding" the consumer early on in life. Like those candy cigarettes...Except, that I am branding tiki to these youngsters. Hopefully they will grow up and want to buy a tiki, because it will remind them of when they were young and carefree. Hopefully, I'll still be there to sell them one. Carvers should stick around for about 15-20 years until these kids head out and start buying tikis, there will be several hundred tiki fans in and around the San Marcos area wanting a tiki. As a producer of these fine products, I cannot wait...
Buzzy, Builder of Young Minds Out!

And these kids would be able to get their PHD by the time they are around 20, thanks to all the soccer moms and dads of today...Yes Buzzy my friend, you will be making a lot of tikis and money at the same time. OMGhiltiki out.

Finished sanding. Lots of pictures because there is much to see...

Upper headress, pain in the ass...

I do not know anything about history. If Hawaii was ever called French Polynesia, then this is a "French" braid. If Hawaii was never under French control, then this is a carving of this type of bread that they sell at a Jewish restaurant in La Mesa...(Save the learn your history rants-this is a joke!!!)

These windows were really hard to do...

Face

Lot of geometry here...

Blurry

I saw that TikiG found a "tribute" piece of his work online recently. Someone please try doing this one, I'd be interested in seeing how it turns out...imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

I obsessed over almost every detail on this one. Why? I felt I had to...

You really need the right kind of tools to do some of this $#!^

This design's inspiration was based on merging freeways, gridlock, and the realization that they all lead to the same place...

I can't tell what the hell is going on here! Doesn't look tiki to me...

Body-looks plain compared to all that other stuff going on above it...

Little mood lighting...

I learned a whole lot carving this one. I really challenged myself and am happy with the result. There are still a few areas that need improving, like the arms. Most of this was carved about two months ago, and I concentrated on the arms on my next few pieces since then. Always working on my weaknesses...
The whole puzzle is put together one piece at a time; the carving is made by taking away one piece at a time...The yin yang relationship of carving.
My journey continues...

I'm Buzzy, and I'll be appearing here nightly on TC...

This one is really going to be great, although I kinda liked the bread version, mostly because I make french toast with that kind of bread and I'm hungry, Wheres the Bread??
What were you talking about Conga? are you seeing the future?
I have no idea why it was so long, I guess I wanted my space to say nothing if I felt like it I don't know Nutthin.

I use the Roland Stika design cutter

That roland logo reminds me of a friend who used to have a Roland Jazz Chorus amp. Solid state piece of $#!^. My JCM 800 outplayed that thing on 2...
The machine looks like a computer printer and works almost the same way. It has a small blade that cuts through the top layer of the sticker paper and cuts the design that you make on the software

This is the front and back of the sticker paper. The blade will cut through the red and not cut the backing.

After removing the excess by hand(this part sucks to do), you put a backing on the exposed side of the cut design

To apply the sticker, you take off the old backing, stick the whole thing down where you want it, and then peel off the sheet you covered it with

It will leave the cut out design. Viola! You have a sticker. This is how they make all those flower stickers for people's cars. Here is one now...

They are a pain in the ass to do, but another line on my tiki resume looks good...

About a week ago, I got to redo same grass thatching on the famous Luau hut, which sits in the atrium of the Red Lion. While I was working on it, I noticed that the stacked tikis were actually individual tikis glued and nailed together. Here's the link with the pictures and explanation:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=20169&forum=18
The reason I bring this up is this: When I started carving this one a while back, I tried to get credit for 4 tikis carved. Benzart said no, one log one tiki only. I'm going to cut this up, take credit for 4 tikis, and then nail and glue them back together
tiki 1

tiki 2

tiki 3

tiki 4

My sanding pile just got one, oops, four smaller...
