Buzzy, Have a HAPPY Belated BIRTHDAY . I was gonna chime in on how Awesome your drums Are, especially that tunable mini drum, What an Incredible engineering feat you pulled there, But the B'Day stuff was all that was going on so I figured I'd chime in with that instead, Especially since yours and Sherry's were the same day! and I've been partying all weekend without you guys.

Thanks for the B'day wellwishes Benzo! I forgot to post the final shots of that drum on this thread.

It wasn't quite tight enough as I'd like, so I did a little tying here and there and came up with this:



The best part is that you can now tune it. You just slide the bands in the direction of the arrows and as the triangle gets smaller, the tension increases, tightening the head:

You can read all about it over on the Youtube pahu making thread here in carving

On saturday, I carved this Moai guy for a job. He's 34" tall and will be a light color. I have to do anither matching one too:


I haven't done many tikis lately, so I cleaned a couple logs on Sunday to make some


While I was on the second log, I got struck by some inspiration and cut the log into two pieces to make....more drums.


I got on the first one right away, because I had an idea and I wanted to see if I could execute it. I started with a little tiki drafting:


It was a long run of time, but it's now over. I started carving all night in the living room again.

Kiva's says:"Damn, I liked having a floor!"

More lines and a little chopping:


The next day I had this much done:


Next was hollowing it out using my expanding star method





It goes fast if you can take out big chunks:


Took less than an hour to get it to here:


Then last night, I carved the same damn tiki head 8 times

There are notches under their chins where the lashing will go to attach the head.

Just before sunset last night, I got the layout for a new Pahu drawn on too:

I'll work on this today.

But first, I have to do a post where I thank all of you for the Birthday wishes.
Buzzy Out!

Not only did I cut in line in front of hundreds of mug collectors waiting to get into a room party, but once I got in, I never left. I hogged up all the space and made it so no one else could come in after me. It was great! Next year, you and Billy will have to make a special line in front of the room party line for people like me who don't wait in lines.

It was no secret. In fact, we had a giant party for my birthday last week at a hotel in San Diego. A whole mess of tiki people showed up. Some people even lined up outside the doors of rooms that I would be spending time in that evening to make sure they would get the opportunity to party with me. We nicknamed my party Tiki Oasis, named tongue in cheek after some event that used to take place out in the desert a few years ago. The only difference is that my party is a lot bigger than the old Oasis gatherings.

I got all the holes done on the drum yesterday:

That's a long day of boring carving, right there...

Today will be much more exciting.

I'm working on making the pedestal a little fancier. Here's a step by step look at the progress:










I have to round the bottom edge next, and then it's a hollowing time.

Buzzy Out!

Some recent fire affected sunsets:











I did my last week at the hotel for the season. Here's the sun setting on another summer:

I pretty much ran out of stuff to sell. I can't even fill up a card table:



I haven't done a Hawaiian tiki in a long, long time. If I don't count the Frankie's chairs, it's been over a year since the last one that I finished. I forgot where the trouble spots were in that time so I'm doing a refresher piece so I can remember all those little tricks that I learned how to do so long ago.
Started with a split log. i want it to be a wall hanger when I'm done:

Only when the temperature goes above 80. So yes, I slowed to a stop all week! It's cooler now. forcast is in the low 70's on the coast so it looks like I'll get some stuff done.

Yo BigT! Onwards and upwards! I wanted to make sure the pahus work before I spend too much time on the fancing up part. I've seen the problem areas now and am confident I can work my way around them.
That drum in the picture, I'll call it a "Tambour", is one of my favorites so far. It's survived the drying process with no checking, so it's just about ready for finishing. I can't wait, and i hate the waiting part.

Happy Labor Day!
Buzy Out!

Extra added bonus is that he stands up too!

Now on to the headdress, teeth, and fine tuning.
