Hey Buzz!

Happy Belated Birthday!

Your stuff is lookin' awesome as always, but ya know what I like the best? The beautiful smooth LOGS. Man, it must be great to be able to carve something into the wood and have it STAY there! I don't know how you get 'em so smooth without hours and hours of work. Must be the glory of California wood. The crappy logs from out here just keep "fraying" all the way down to the split-apart centers.

Anyway, all is looking super-cool, especially the Hawaiian "refresher course".

Later!

We're getting into good sunset season:






Tiki update:

I started working on the headress. here is some early progress:


And now finished:




All hollowed out in the back:

There's Kiva the good dog back there. She's had a rough week or so. The cancer has now spread to her lungs and one of them doesn't work anymore. She's a little short of breath and doesn'r eat much, but she's still rolling along...

I was just asked if I really carve in my living room. The answer is yes and I do it on the carpet in front of the televison:

Tools, rulers, and trash, all in one neat pile:

that's how I roll...

the big problem area was where I only left myself with about 1.5 inches of depth for the face. I wasted too much log on the headress. I worked through those areas, but they were a little shaky.

The logs I've been using lately are the best of the best from the old log pile. I lucked out on the last load I got. They definitely are not all like this. I've been running crappy logs to the dumpster for weeks now.

""""I was just asked if I really carve in my living room. The answer is yes and I do it on the carpet in front of the televison:"""""

See Sherry, It doesn't leave much mess? It would be SO Much cooler and the mutts would Love it.

Buzz, I love your tool storagesolution, Keeps them All right there within your of Kiva's reach, easy to put back, "Kivss, the chisels don't go Under the house"... well a few kinks maybe. I'm Loving this KU? you sre doing. When you are stuck and have to work your way ouy of situations, the thought process registers in your brain deeper and you become a better carver for it. See it's working already, see how nice and orderly everythin is, justPerfectQ
yOU'LL HAVE TO DO WITH THE q SINCE i WAS TOO LAZY TO REACH ALL THE WAY UP TO THE EXPLAINATION MARK THINGIE/... and the caps lok thingiie that too.
Nice stuff

Sad and bad days here at the House of Buzz


We lost our best friend recently.

RIP Kiva the Dog
August 5, 1995-September 21, 2009



Here are some good old days happy times Kiva pictures of Kiva doing all of her favorite things:

Barking at passing trucks the whole 1,100 miles to the east cape


Swimming in the Bahia de Concepcion


Messing with Mexican wildlife


Just killing time, beachcombing while waiting for the surf to pick up


Living in a little grass shack on a white sandy beach in the tropics


At home in the House of Buzz



In her final couple years, chillin' with her good buddy Ringo


She'll be missed greatly around here.


And with that, on to the rest of the bad news:

I was in a car accident last week and seemed to have messed up my thumb, elbows, and wrists a little bit. I'm not able to carve right now, but will know more when I got to the doctor tomorrow morning. Hopefully this will soon pass. If not, I'm totally F%$^ed!

Before all that bad stuff happened, I was doing some work.

I got the bottom of the pahu carved out

this one isn't hollowed out like a tube. It has a bottom to the bell...

or a top to the pedestal?

Doing this middle support section will hopefully keep it from splitting and warping. I'll drill a sound hole right before puttung the head on

I also cleaned up the inside of the tambour




And finally, I started another wall hanging tiki from the other half of the KU log





Sunset:



Dont race back here for an update anytime soon.
Buzzy Out!

My condolences to you Buzzy, on the passing of Kiva.

When you do start carving again, and you will, Kiva's spirit will live on in every piece you do.

Sorry to hear of the accident also.

Too many bad things to happen to a good soul like yourself.

Hang in there... I hope your recovery is a quick one.
