Sunsets:


We've actually had a few hours of sun out here lately


I did some staining on the second board




The bottom and rails are stained now, so it doesn't look like this


Third board is loosely based on a board like this:

Here it is shaped:

It looks squarer than it actually is because of the photo angle. It looks more tapered in real life

Fourth board will be more like this one:

Here it is started:


Fifth is the same outline as the third:



Speaking of the third one, I did the rough sketch for it:

Old Hawaiian board needed a Hawaiian tiki on it

The design will sit up on the nose


Thanks for all the comments and support.
Buzzy Out!

Buzz, I'm intrigued as to how you are cutting these blanks. Did you build a sawmill, or are you just freehanding it with the chainsaw?
Those are palm, correct?

Beautiful boards Buzz! Here's a sunset from Parker AZ this weekend. Speaking of photos, how's the cheesecake coming for Oasis?

Those boards look sssiiiiicccckkkk!!!! Can't wait for the Hawaiian tiki board to turn up. I would love to make a pendant out of that model. Can I ? Is this for actual surfing or mainly decorative. If the latter, then shallow relief carving the objects would just be the icing on the cake for that bad boy. What are the boards made from.

Awesome boards. So I guess you're burning right over the patterns and then the patterns go bye bye?

Sunset:


I got the tiki burned on to the board




And then stained the rest of it:


In the background, there are some bunnies that I'm babysitting. Poki has no problems with them, but Ringo stayed over here a few `days last week and he barked at them for three straight days. I eventually had to build a wall around them because if he saw them, he'd bark endlessly.

I also finished staining board #2


Here's the fin for it:

Now I'll finish one to keep the white as white as possible, and the other to make the white as brown as possible...

About a million years ago, Jimiyaki and I discussed making a set of durable tunable drums. I told him I'd make a prototype and see how it would work. It took me a while to figure it all out in my head, but I finally got it all figured out. A little geometry and a lot of measuring and the protype is done

Step by step
Decorated the tube with some scrap tapa like material. I uesd scrap just in case it didn't work:

Now that I know it will work, I'll use different/better wrapping. It didn;t turn out bad, but when you look carefully at it you'll notice it's a quilt of tapa pattern scraps.

Next I drilled some holes:


Then added some goat and rope:


The end result: a tunable, durable Drum.


Before and after type shot:

Next step is making set with one this size, a matching larger and smaller ones, with hardware to connect the three. I didn't get the larger size pipe yet because they only sell it in 20' lengths. I didn;t want to invest in 20' of raw materials if it didn;t work. But 20' of pipe sure does make a lot of drums...Poor goats.

Yes, they are regular mexi-palm. I just cut some parallel lines in a log with the chainsaw and shaped them down to boards from the rectangular slabs. I got six pieces out of one log.

you have my blessing to make a pendant out of that model. In fact, to help you, I'll provide you with my master source that I used on my drawing:

I grabbed a tiki off the shelf, took that b+w picture of it with a couple well placed lights and did a freehand master sketch from the photo. I changed the shape of the eyes and headress to fit the shape of the rails and nose on the board better. for my drawing, I just drew out the left side and then made the right to match.


They're made out of Mexican fan palm. I made my own lumber slabs from a fat log. They're too small for surfing, so they're decorative(Longest one is about 47"). I waited too long after milling these pieces and they were too dry to carve. Originally, the slabs were made because I wanted to do a Maori Pare. i waited too long so I decided to make them into mini surfboards so as not to waste the wood I made.

Yes, i will once again grace Tiki oasis with my presence.
Yes, I will be peddling my wares, including surfboards, there again.
and Yes, there will be a pinup, because it's a TikiOasis tradition.

I xerox the original on to ledger sized paper at Office Depot and then use those copies as a stencil. I usually cut out the pieces and trace around them, and then fill in the smaller lines inside the shapes I stencil on. My burner runs pretty hot, so it would probably ignite the paper if I did it that other way.

Sunset:

The weather'e been real nice. Sunny, but not hot. Pretty breezy today...

The next piece of wood I had for board #4 is the "center cut" piece. This might sound good, but it's not meat, so it's actually the worst piece of the log. It has its certain charm and challenges. There isn't much fiber in it, and the filler stuff crumbles when I tried to work it, even by hand. after accidently taking out a couple chunks, I decided to leave it a little rougher than the other three.


Since I did take out a piece whilst sanding it, I turned a stumbling block into a stepping stone and tried to make one of those old style butterfly repairs in it:

The "repair" is basswood with its grain going perpendicular to the palm's grain. If the board someday cracks, I hope that it happens somewhere on that repair.

Next step, tiki head drawing to be transfered to the board for future burning:

I want to make sure the design hits the repair piece. that way, in the future, scholars can speculate when the repair and design were done in relation to the board's date of manufacture.

Now it's mostly burned on:

the board looks a little empty with just the face on it. I think it needs some logos and stuff...

Blurry picture of the whole board for scale:

#5 on the right is ready for a design now. It's a better piece of wood and is shaped and sanded like the first three.

speaking of logos...

Team riders will have this on their boards:


Next to #3

One more coat of oil on #3 and it's done:

thanks TG! It's all in the drawing...And the fun part about this is that I don;t have to carve it after I draw it. I just sketch it out and BAM! Done!...
