Sunsets:



I rested the elbows a couple days and then took to the drum again with the drawkinfe. I got the bell tapered to where I want it:


Now I have to crack out the ruler and even up the bottom circumference of the bell in a couple spots. After that I'll even the bell up with the sander.

I finished sanding this guy:

and stained him:

I think I still need one more coat of stain. I'll see how it looks in sunlight tomorrow

And for my for fun project...

I didn;t just want a piece of wood shaped like a surfboard, I wanted as close to a scaled ereal surfboard as I could manage with a piece of crappy palm.
First thing I did was make the bottom rocker and started to bring the top down to match

I mark out the sots that need sanding. Then I kept sanding it down until it felt and looked right


Side view of it now:

Top view

I'll sand it all all pretty and perfect and then probably wood burn some ripoff 60's looking logo on it and add a fin I plan to make out of some carobwood

Now I want to make one out of a giant piece of redwood.

Saves a lot of time to draw it right initially. I've always taken the extra tome to draw it out extra careful and recise before I start carving it.

Yeah, I figured that out after a few days. I saw a book at the pet store when I was trying to figure out what to feed it. No one answered my found turtle flyers so a good home was found for him and soon he'll be headed to a custom turtle pond with other turtle buddies.

If the state you live in allows it: Grizzly Bear. You can get it
online at several hide supply stores. I can't get it here because even though we don't have them in this state, they're protected because they are the state animal, and are on the flag and stuff.
Actually, I've used both goat and cow. I'd use cow on a larger sized drum to get a thunderous lower sound. the goat sounds real good, but isn;t as low sounding as the cow. I'd use it for smaller drums that won;t sound that low anyway. Cow's good if you're going to use it as a table more than a drum.

In other tiki news: I have this guy up on the rack for some sanding

I think that "sweetness" is the attraction...sweet and sour pitbull poki.

I guess we'll keep her away from the Bali hai for a while just to be safe.

I forgot to add that your local weather might affect the cow. Foggy and humid days and the cow goes a little soft and flat.

thanks Seeks.I still wonder why I didn;t just cut a flat one out in the outline of a board and not worry about all the neat little upgrades I spent an afternoon on...



RIP Kenny 1966-2010

If there's a Rock 'n Roll heaven, then Kenny will probably be late for practice there...

sunsets:



Quick update to catch me up to the present:

I was cleaning this tree of all the dead branches:

And just like every year, I said to myself that I should see if the wood is carveable. The only difference was that this year I actually hacked and saved a couple hunks and carved one up

It has neat bark like this, so I wanted to leave some on:


To test it out as a carving wood, I quickly did yet another Moai pendant:

Super soft. I'll have to find its limits...

sanded and stained it:





Eventually, I'll start making these Frank Schirman type of carvings from this wood, if it works out:




On to other older stuff I'm just wrapping up...

Sanded:


Rim done and stained:


second round of stain:



Sanded:


Stained part one:


stained part four:




Sanded, burned and/or stained:




Finished, round one:


Finished, round two:


Drum leg stencil making step by steps, from rough scaled to final master stencil:


How it will fit on the legs:

Now I just have to transfer the stencil on each leg and then, obviously, carve them out


That just about covers it, tikiwise.

She weighs 36 lbs now. More than double from when I got her. Is that big log that I wanted still out in the street in front of your house? I just got a truck last week so I can come get it now. And if it is, I promise I won't bring Cammo with me this time.

Buzzy Out!

Buzz, what happened to steps 2 and 3 on that janus marq piece??? It goes from a dark stain to light. Excellent carving on that, BTW.
How exactly do you transfer the design from the paper to the drum leg?
What kind of truck did you get?
Inquiring minds...

I sure hope you will have all these terrific pieces at Oasis 10. Also I need another pinup for our Buzzy Bedroom which was viewed by many fans of yours on the last Sacramento Tiki Crawl. Wendy

That log is still here, man. Better come get it soon. I was eyeballing it and thinking today, so you better hurry. It was left that long just for you, too. If I carved it, I'd feel bad.
That tall skinny guy is freakin' great, man. All the new stuff is such a progression, I feel like Im still choking on your sawdust. Lemme know when you want to cruise over for the log. Thomas and I will be carving around 1pm here on Friday.

#1 I forgot to show you yesterday...you have to see the piece in person real close to see what happened. It was a test run for this one:

...which I'll be finishing in the next couple days. Now I know what I want to do will work, so I'll give it a shot

#2 Copy machine, ledger paper, razor, scissors, and a pencil:



#3 Log hauler:

I went over to Billy's on Friday and grabbed the 8' log out in front of his house with it. Trial by fire.

Tiki update:

I carved the first leg on the drum a couple nights ago. I'll do the teeth and nostrils after I finish the other two. I don;t want those parts to chip while I'm working on the rest of the log


and, Some pictures of this guy finished:

You can let the fine folks of Sacramento know that I started working on my tan yesterday at the
Bamboo Ben Garage sale in preparation for this year's photo.

I should start a log over there soon and swing by a couple hours now and again and hack it out. we'll smoke some shit too, man. How long does it takes to smoke a cheeseburger in that new smoker thing you got? We should have a chop where Babalu has that hot dog cart going, your smoker, and my deep fat fryer going.

I find it more accurate to do it one piece at a time like i show up top. Sometimes I have to adjust a line a little here and there while I'm transferring because the log is warped, the pattern shifts, etc. I can catch and fix stuff quicker one piece at a time. Kind of like building a puzzle one piece at a time, the way I do it. I think the holes/marks might get lost in the crappy palm surface also. I'll look for one of those at the swap and see how it works.
