Yep. I got it...



One to remember.


Much better than today:



and the day before yesterday:

After I got the outside all cleaned up, I cleaned the garage work area substantially. I took the finished pieces in and am now in the final stages.

Meanwhile, I got this guy sanded and stained:

I was trying for a rounder look on this one. some times I think my stuff looks a little too linear.


I also got a log piece ready to go for a warm up carve:

I haven't done in carving yet because I'm still kind of messed up from cleaning up last week. I should be able to start tomorrow. The docs told me take it easier than I have been, and i told them I haven't actually done anything yet; so far as carving is concerned.

Interesting hanger arrangement, anchored below center, hmmm.



A little above center. I put it where it's thickest, where the tiki's head is on the other side. The holes are on the bottom of the indent so it sits flush to the wall. The nail and wire will be in the recess:

Comes with it. I'm even going to throw in a nail. Some tools and assembly required, however...

Wow! I must be serious when the long pants come out! It's still real nice here. A little cloudy yesterday, but still warm.


I'm getting closer, but I think I still have stuff to answer from page 220...

Today's sunset:

We're supposed to have a couple more days of this nice weather.




I started the warm up carve today. Here's a step by step of the day's progress;

First step was tapering the sides of the head to the top of the eventual shoulders:


Side view:


Next was doing the top of the chest to the chin:


I next cutaway the material under arms. Now he has hangy arms:


making the front of the arms from the chest down came next:


Now to taper the waist and make the outer line of the thighs:


Next I had to make the body and legs rounder


Cut out under the arms:

That was it before sunset. I managed to punch all the way through the underarms before it got dark, and start on the lower legs.

More tomorrow...
Buzzy Out!

Yesterday's sunset:

It's supposed to rain tonight, I hear. Finally a break in the weather. I hear the waves are real big too.

I got another chance at the tiki yesterday. Here are some more progress shots

Punched through the legs and started the shin area. I'm trying to do the lower legs a little different by making them concave instead of a straight line from knee to ankle


Now I had to round out the back of the legs because they were way too blocky


A lot more leg tweaking:


It's finally starting to make sense

Still a little bulky...

More off the legs and now the mouth started


Eyes and nose started


More face work



After a few more refinements, it looked like this at sunset:


After sunset I did the upper shoulders. Now I just have to hollow the back, do the arms and headress, refine the whole thing and I'm done.

I have to take more breaks now, so I'm snapping a shot after each one I take. Usually I'd just power through the whole daylight session and just snap one shot after I was done. Now, I figure since I have to stop anyway, might as well be informative while i'm at it. And, I want to widen my lead as TC's #1 photo contributer a bit...

Looks like I'm going to have to revise my concept sketches a bit to include that fourth one. What exact evil is she concealing there, anyway?

Today, however, needs to be a resting day.

That's "See no evil, Speak no evil, Hear no evil, Have no fun!"

Buzz, it does my heart good to see you carving again

Yesterday's sunset:


Before I get on with the usual order of business, I'd like to introduce a new cast member over here at the House of Buzz, my new dog:

I got her on Thursday. I still haven't named her yet. I can't decide between "Tiki Dog" or "Pepsi." Or maybe I'll name her after some defunct tiki bar's signature drink, if I don't name her after the tiki bar itself

She got right in to the routine around here:

She doesn't seem to mind the mess either.

We hung outside yesterday and got some work done:


And now on to the carving update...

The face got fixed up a bit here and there:


Then I rounded off the shoulders:


Next I started on the headress pattern. Since these are all diagonal to the grain of the wood, I used all super sharp flat chisels to do it.


Center part done, moving left


The dog gets comfy while I labor on:


Headress done, now all I have to do is the shoulders:


Side view:


Rear view of it mostly hollowed out:


Rear view of the rear:

Even though it's a wall hanger and it will never be seen, I couldn;t resist carving it in while I was back there.


All I have left on it now are the arms.

I also need to get a haircut and name my new dog. Busy day.
Buzzy Out!

Is the tiki wearing sunglasses? You could call it "Sunset Watcher, and place him so he watches the sun go down.

Cute puppy. You should name her QT.

If GROG ever get dog, GROG name dog either "Society" or "Bitch". If GROG name dog "Society", then if anything is ever broken in the house or messed up, or GROG fart and not want anybody know it was GROG, then GROG could blame "Society". If GROG name dog "Bitch" then GROG can stand outside of house and yell, " Bitch, get your ass over here! Get in the house Bitch! Shut up Bitch! Bitch, don't make me smack you!", and etc. The neighbors will be calling the cops reporting domestic abuse, and when cops arrive, they find out GROG only yelling at GROG' dog.
