A couple sunsets from when it wasn't raining

1.25" first storm, .85 from this storm so far.


Only two or three more days of rain.

I have these guys all finished up. Now I need to start the drum heads

Crappy light picture for now

I finished carving this guy's arms today:



He's pretty much finshed now. I just need to let him sit and dry for a while. He's about 14 lbs right now. I expect him to weigh in under about 9 lbs by the time he's ready to be sanded and stained.

Would you say you were back to semi normal?!! as far as carving goes!!!


No. Not quite yet. I still have a little hand problem and also have to build up my stamina. I can only do about half the time I used to and I haven't tried anything big yet. At least I can put some work time in now.

I don't know what those are. My carving's more or less based on a cocojoes which is more or less based on this one:

And that one appears to have some sort of eyewear looking things.

GROG is crazy caveman! I had a dog I named Yahoo, so I would have an excuse to go outside and yell "YAAAAAHOOOOOO!!!"



I once had a fireman roomate who was never around and he had a new puppy dog that I had to take care of in his absence. For some reason, I was at a point in my life where I had a lot of time to hang around the house during the day and play with the dog, so he kind of became my dog by default. Since he was mine,I tought it would be cool to train the dog to do all kinds of neat and funny tricks. One trick was to get the dog to think his name was "Fuck-O". You had to yell it in a Joe Pesci/Robert Dinero italian movie mobster accent for him to respond, but after a few days I got him to respond to that name 100% of the time. It's was funny when people wpuld come over and ask the dog's name. It would be even funnier when the dog would run over all happy and tail waggy when someone yelled "C'mere Fuck-O."

Here's Poki today, playing in her pile of garbage and toys:

She seems to fit right in amoungst the junk. I think she's like me and actually thrives in it.

Also, I'm glad to see you're feeling better and back to work. And the new puppy is adorable! Happy you have a new friend to keep you company.

Cheers my friend!



Hi Jen! I had to get that tiki in there. Glad it stoked you out! Your tiki is famous!
I needed a new partner in crime. It was just a little bit too lonely around here lately.

how about naming him after that handsome carver that used to live in sd ,what was his name ?

oh yeah buzzard



Oh, too bad Bob! You just missed the name submittal deadline...

I was actually waiting until after the Chargers game to name her. I was planning on naming her Darran Sproles or LT, depending on which one did better in the Chargers win over the Jets. Good thing they didn;t win because SD will lose both to free agency real soon and I will not have to answer this question: Did you name your dog after that running back on the Phoenix Cardinals they picked up from the Chargers a few years ago?

Crappy weather today so I was stuck inside. I worked on a piece I started in march of last year. I still had the second face to do, so I decided that today was the day to get back to work on it.
Here's side one, done last year:

the start of today's side:

Here it is after some work done:


It was hard getting them the same when I couldn;t see the one I was copying while I was working on the copy. I had to keep flipping it back and forth to see if it matched. Here they are back to back right before I cut them apart:


Side by side after a little more touchup on #2:

The dog toys are made by the same company as the adult toys, except they're a fraction of the cost!

A couple sunsets:



The last of last week's storms brought 2.25" of rain. It knocked out half the channels on my usual satellite reception. It's getting fixed tomorrow, but another storm is probably coming on Tuesday.

Tiki update:
I did a little more sanding of the twins:

and I gave them some asses:

Some recent sunsets:












Here are some shots of the last tiki I finished in better light:


Side view:


Here's how I did the arms:

Now he will sit for a while and dry out a bit before I sand him


On to the next one. Full round log for this one, but it'sa short one. Step by steps for step by step fans:

I make parallel lines off the center line on each end. these mark to depth where I'll be carving later on. Right here I removed the sides of the head. What was round, is now flat.


Next I round the edges of the head so its a rounded edged rectangle:


Both sides done, I'l do it to the font and back next:


Now I make the front of the arms:


Bottom of hands, knees, and top of the feet started:


A quick break from all that step by step mumbo jumbo: My dog chases every piece of wood that flies off the log when I'm carving


Now I square off the sides of the legs and start the chin area:


Rounded cuts in the chest sides:

These will help facilitate cut throughs to the back, which I will be executing on this piece later on.

I took out some material on the back of the feet and started the ankles:


A little more rounding with the sander and this is where it is now:




One last picture of the puppy for the road:

She likes to chew on wood chips. Saves a lot of money for me on puppy toys.One of the many side benefits of tiki carving!

Yo Freddie! I'm seeing those altars popping up herev and there these days. Enough that I hope one or two are left intact for archeologists to find in the future. They'd write a textbook about enshrined Buzzy deity!

I got a little more done on the tiki last night.

Here's how he stands now:


I got the punch outs under the arms done


Legs make a little more sense now:


Side view. I need to work out the shoulders a bit and do something to the back of the feet and legs


I put a butt on this one too:


Rear view of the rear:

I rather not discourage some of my good friends from entering.
How about: Which week will Poki destroy her first tiki item?
Catagories are: Coco joe's, Original unfinished carving, original finished carving,Drum bell or pedestal, drum head only, carving tool handle, wood pendant finished, wood pendant unfinished, Scrubs resin tiki, Brad Bunch resin tiki, Swap meet find, etc.
