A carving course by you and Benz would be the ultimate! Could both of you guys move to Texas?

It was raining today so I didn't get the sunset.

So, on to the tiki stuff...

After drawing on the aforementioned grid, I just maneuvered my tools between the lines and came up with a few patterns on it.

Front view:

i'll do the lines a little deeper while I'm sanding it up. It's real rough here.

Closer up, with the little tiki face on it



One side



Other side:

Kind of the same, but kind of different from the other side

Luckily, the log held up to most of the detailing I tried to carve


The back:

And the good thing is, she still hasn't ruined anything that I hadn't previously ruined myself! The only reason I post so many pictures, is because I want to widen my lead as TC's #1 photo contributer. I'm glad that my quest to remain #1 results in some enjoyment for you.

Tikimecula, Buzzy, Poki, and Babalu:



Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that House of Buzz had a special guest you all know this week: Tikimecula. He was in town and thought a day over here would be better than a fifth day in row in a hotel room. Little did he know that I would drag him to he Post Office with me, at probably one of the worst moments of post office efficiency history. It took so long we had to cancel our planned trip to Babalu's house. We wanted to go over there and steal whatever idea Bowana was working on, but that will have to wait until some other time.
I forgot to get a picture while he was here, too. Dang! As a substitute, here's me and he at Oasis:

Despite what his posture in this photo would lead you to believe, he couldn't wait to get his hands on that signed, limited edition Buzzy pinup photo.

How about if we just travel around together, spreading tiki carving joy across the nation. We need a carving tool sponser to loan us a big tour bus like John Madden has and we'll go around giving tiki carving classes throughout the great 48!

...only problem is I'd rather be at a Benzart carving course as a student. I took a Benzart carving class with a few lucky ducks out here a few years back and it was the greatest thing ever.


Puppy pictures time:


Poki the puppy, 60mph to...





...0 in one minute flat!

SSSSShhhhh! Don't wake up the dog. She'll start chewing on stuff again.
Buzzy Out!

A couple sunsets:



The weather was pleasant today

Yesterday I did a little boring log prep work. I split a short fat one and sanded a couple i had drying for a while. Here's the next set of volunteers


I marked a couple of them out. I was going to start by carving this one inside last night...

but then I got tired and took the evening off.

When I got up today, I decided to carve the longer one in this picture instead, since it was a nice day out. I planned on carving the small one inside at night, and the longer one outside during the day.

So I marked it out, but never got around to carving it during daylight

I didn't want to lose a work day, so I brought it inside and carved it up this evening. I started with an eye:


and then I did another eye to match:


I got it to here:

This one should go pretty quick.

During the day, Poki hunts for stuff to dig up and chew on in the yard:


Then at night, she rests on the couch:

Buzzy, I love the direction you are taking in carving the last tiki. I can't wait to see how you finish it. That is one of my favorite tiki styles. Seems like you are starting to carve large pieces now? Are you coming out to the San Fernando Valley Chop?
Poki rules.

Clear sunset from two days ago:

Blurry sunset from yesterday:



Moving right along on the tiki. I've shifted and have been working nights lately, just because that's when I feel like carving now. A couple nights ago I had it drwan out and ready to go:


I started the mouth area by removing the material under the eyes


Then I defined the back of the lower head:


Start of the mouth

I changed this part about six times before I finally committed to the final layout



Little more done on the mouth now



More mouth work, added a nose, and did some of the initial head work:




Dog update
Poki chews on a lid from a Wd-40 can:

She's learning how to do Ringo's famous "Good walker" trick now. He taught it to her last week. I'll try to get a picture of them wlking side by side after she gets a little better at it.

Not too big, just a little bigger.Maybe only 4 feet tall? I don't want to mess myself up taking on something heavy too soon. I just got a big 8'+ log from Billy the Crud a couple days ago, so that one and a couple other big ones are on the horizon. I going to try to make the SFV chop. I wanted to go to the last one, but that was the only day I had to work in the last six months, so I couldn't do it.

Beautiful day today,
Buzzy Out!

Oh well. Looks like you didn't need it though, Buzzman cuz your newest carving is looking pretty sweet.

It was real nice day here today. It actually got so warm I took off my shirt while carving. just when it gets real nice here on the coast, in comes the fog. It's supposed to be cloudy here tomorrow, but sunny inland. By sunset, I could see it creeping in:


Yesterday was nice and clear


More work done between the eyes and on the top of the head:

I'll round the eyes last. they'll be the same size, just rounder

The nostrils need to be done later as well. I needed to move on from the head while I worked on other parts

On to the body...

I always go real slow, balanced, and deliberate when I do the next steps. However, this time I wanted to wiki-quicky my way through it. I see where others mess up doing it like this, so aware of the potential problems I'll have to deal with if I don't get it right, right off, I charge on...

front of arms and chest profile:


It's just a couple triangle/pyramids cut out


Same on the back, but more shallow looking because arms sit just behind of 90 degree from center line line.

that will leave me enough room for the cut throughs

Next was tapering the chest and back to the waist. Here is when I noticed I really messed up on the earlier carving step. This wouldn't of happened if I did it the way I usually do. Now I added some fix it time to it. I guess it's a wash, timewise...


Moving on to the legs:

I don't usually do the legs like this either. Let's hope I haven't messed it up already

a lot more to do, but most of it's done



Poki the puppy update:

Now Poki likes to play in an old wine barrel I used to use as a planter. usually she just sits in it and stares at the bay, or barks at the trains. Here she is digging away.

Playing ball in the wine barrel:

Here she is wathing me work:

Hey Bowana. Babalu was just over here and we were devising more devious ways to mess with you. He borrowed a bunch a CocoJoes of mine and said something about showing up your newHawaiin Kona guy mugs. Whatever you do in reponse to him doing that, I'm going to rip off.

thanks BTS. I just hope I can fix that warp on his chest. Poki does rock! Not Van halen rocks, but more like cool dog rocks!

I hope it isn't cloudy tomorrow. I was going to work on my tan some more.
Is there such thing as a Polynesian sun dance?
Buzzy Out!

Oh, I didn't realize you were up on a hill! Cool.

I like the new guy. I'll have to re-read your destructions so I can understand where the pitfalls are that you mentioned. I saw lots of pencil lines, angled ones.... and then my eyes glazed over.
