Lovin' the new carves, Buzzy

By the way - when you post those beautiful sunset pics looking across the bay towards the ocean - from your house - do you glimpse Belmont Park and the roller coaster?

Today's Sunset:

We just had a storm, and have another on the way. Today was a pleasant day in between...


If this next piece of wood is real nice and will work as a drum, then a drum it will be. Otherwise, it wil be a chair, table, or something. I started by cleaning a log with my handy Ryobi planer. It's definitely not square, so a little measuring and cutting is in order


This is straight enough to start laying it out:


Some tiki drafting and i'm ready to cut:



Zip zip zip with the saw. I hope I don't wander with the chainsaw. I gave myself a half inch of error room to absorb any slips or strays


Next step was to remove the wedges by hand. Here's the pile after I was done


I got done removing it all just a little after sunset. It's not as dark as it looks in the pictures as it was in reality:


I got it to here before I wrapped it up for the day:



Dog dayz:
Poki went to the vet today for her last puppy shots. She was 16lbs one month ago, 24lbs today.
Ringo came over this weekend and taught Poki how to get dirty:

Poki's sporting a new collar too:

Yeah. It's pretty much straight out from me. I can see it all lit up at night. And when the wind blows just right, I can smell the urine drenched gutters of PB too!

They'll fade, and the rest of the tiki will get darker. It's already starting to happen. A little stain and it will be like they aren't even there.

I think you said:

If those weren't the exact words, don't worry, I still know what you meant.

Internationally acclaimed Top in the Region,
Buzzy Out!

Today's end:



TikiG: Here's the Belmont Park roller coaster right behind the Island we left the tiki on



Today's Carving progress:

I started the day by checking and seeing how close I got to where I needed to be with the chainsaw yesterday. The lack blines tell me where to go when I fix everything up and even it out:

I got real close! Only one will side have to be dealt with later, and only by a centimeter or so. The rest will be fixed in the next step. I"ll do that by hand

Meanwhile, Poki settled with her toys in on a pile of woodchips and saw dust:


The eventual result should be that all sides look even like this:

Two more to go...

By this time, Poki's worn out and napping on the saw dust


It's getting real close here:


At daylight's end, I was done with the cleaning up part. I measured all the leges to check myaccuracy. Out of twelve measurments, two were off half centimeter, one was off one cemntometer, amd that was the part I had to correct from the chainsaw drift. Those small amounts will not matter at all, so I got lucky, so far:


After a good rest, I started my evening of work.

First step was making a grid of it to transfer on to a stencil for the legs


I traced this on all six sides:


Flipped it over and knocked out the bottom cut out:


Then the middle one:


Now the top cut out and a little more profile work on the tops of each leg:

I need to lighten it up on the top a bit more before I do the last profile cuts on the bottom. I don't want to break off a foot moving it around when carving the rest of it, so I'll leave that last section there for a while.

Next I tapered in the bell bottom of the drum:


Then I ended the day after I started the interior drum hole:

I have to bore straight through at that diameter. Then the hole will end up exactly between the 3 support legs. After that hole busts through, I'll shape the inside of the drum bowl.

All that can wait until tomorrow...



Poki and I will back to the usual routine tomorrow.


Buzzy Out!

Nice start on the drum. Poki's legs look like they are getting longer. She's starting to lose the "puppy look".

Yesterday's sunset:


Today's sunset:

More rain is coming soon...


I did a little more on the drum. Hollowing it went quick because it was so wide and hollow.Here it is after initial breakthrough:


After a lot of removal and sanding:


Side view:

It's light enough to work on the legs now

Yesterday's sunset:

We didn't have much rain, just enough to be a disruption and a pain in the ass


The legs on the drum looked a little too big, so my next step was to dechunk them a bit. I also made them taper in slightly from the back to the front. Here are my new guidlines:


It took a bit of time to get it precise, but I worked it all out:

I used an old stanley mesh hand planer to do most of it.

I could tell right away that this thickness worked much better. Good thing too, because I can't put wood back on:


With the legs ready to go, I went back and finished my master and working stencils:



Then, I transferred the image six times, to each side of the leg:

After that, I did a lot of the little adjustments here and there to get it all evened out. I'm still worried about how the leg thickness will be after I do the last cutout...In hope it doesn't fall apart down there.

After this, I carved out the area above thier heads. this will now give me enough room to work on and finish the bell portion of the drum. That will be the first half of my day, and hopefully I'll be able to knock out the tikis this afternoon/evening/night.

It's going to be a cold, windy day out there, but it will still feel like paradise to me!
Buzzy Out!

Buzzy, that's gonna look so damn good when done, but for the life of me, I can't see how those legs will hold together after the final cutouts, given the weak nature of palm.
Fingers AND toes crossed for ya!

I missed the sunset yesterday. Instead, let me point out the fact that it's officially Buzzy Month:

From the Frankie's Tiki Room Calendar:


They forgot to add the part where Brandie and her friends complain about the chairs being uncomfortable after they sit in them.

Happy Buzzy Month! and...
Make sure you stop by Frankie's Tiki Room the next time you're in Vegas!


Drum progress:

I started by smoothing out the bell part:


then I did more on the inside of it:


Brought it in to carve out the tiki legs:


Here it is now, with the finalleg cutouts done:


They still need some fixin'.

I'm pushing far outside the comfort zone on this one... With risk comes rewards, or failure.
I'll take some pictures later to clear up that vision problem of yours. It's a planned part of the process, and will be adressed next.

It seems they make and sell a solution for every problem I encounter. Something will work.
