Yesterday's sunset:


Yesterday's mess:


Yesterday's progress:

Those three tall ones standing and the real tall one on the rack bring my total to 24!

Last night's tiki impulsive/compulsive project:

I treated myself to set of wax sculpting tools recently. last night, I broke them out and gave them a test run:


Here's where I left it in the early am:

It still needs a little more smoothy work here and there, and i have to fix the little guys face a bit. The plan is to cast this for a resin pendant.

hurry up and get to work buddy so i can see how a professional gets stuff done........im so slow!!!!!



I don't blame the dog.Those damn chickens are loud! He probably got tired of asking them to keep it down a bit and shut them up, permanently!
I'm getting back to work in six more logs...First project is a quick warm up carve to get the rust out, and then back to work on that drum I have all blocked out from a couple months ago. It just needs some fancy decorations carved on to it and it's done.

Until then, back to the log pile...

Cripes! Haven't laughed like that in a while.
After avoiding it for fear of having to read what you wrote,
I thoroughly enjoyed your breakdown of your fans pics with your pics.
btw..I wasn't sad, I was scared!
Buzzy (if that IS your real name) - great hanging with you at Oasis on your birthday!
It's as if you planned it that way.
Bummed I missed your mom. We could have sung Xmas carols together.
Now stop typing so much an start carving, maniac!

ps Kids haven't slept since Oasis.
Bad idea to put your cheesecake pics by their beds......
xoxoxo

I think he's just having a taste before the main course. Here's one like him from an ebay auction a while back:


and if the little guy's taste is to his liking, he goes on to the main course:

Whatever he's doing to that little guy, it sure is making him happy!

Confuscious might have say: As long as it makes you happy, do it!

A couple weak sunsets:



Sometime on Friday, I finished cleaning log #30. I tried to consolidate them all in one pile. They take up a pretty big chunk of my work area. All these are quite a sight to behold:

For a sense of scale, the one on the far right is a little over 6'. the tallest in the back row is a little over 7'. I don't think I've ever had this many logs ready to go at one time. It's pretty exciting!

It's such a nice view:



Lotta logs:



First volunteer out of the pile for a warm up carving:

About 3' tall x 11" diameter

I started by rounding out the top:

All my chisels were rusty or dull when I took them out today, so it took forever.

I also put a dent in the back of it before I called it a day:


In other news, we have a visitor this weekend:

In that picture, Ringo looks a lot cleaner than he is in reality.

A rare moment of rest:


and we'll end today on dogs and logs:



Buzzy Out!

Happy New Year Buzzy, and I can see you are ready to rock! Jealous of that palm stash since I have just recently learned the joys of palm carving. If only San Diego wasn't so far away. Looks like you had a great time at Oasis, I was bummed I couldn't be there this year to get a signed photo!

Looks like the year is off to a good start, I wish you lot's of luck, stay healthy and keep carving!

Yesterday's sunset far away version:


Yesterday's sunset close up version:


Tiki update:
I got off to a slow start yesterday, but managed to pull myself together enough by the end of the day to get a little more done on it. I took a chunk out of the front and made a couple slashes down the side:

It looks like a simple carve, but it's been hard to keep it all together and even



Then last night I brought it in and worked on the merging areas and started the head. Here it is now:

I already fixed the uneven part on the chin.


It's getting close...

Don "The Predator" Frye quote of the day:

"I scratched my back and a puppy fell out."

I have no idea what that means, but it sounds tough as hell!

Mc Tiki! back from the land of the lost! Seeing your name brought back memories of the good old days and made me wonder if you made the
Old Guys thread back in the day...
I just looked.Guess not. There's still time.

Poor Poki had to say goodbye to her friends today:

Off they went to their new home in Bonita this morning. Bye bye bunnies! Poki will miss you guys.


Don "ThePredator" Frye Quote of the day:

"Have you seen his ears? They're like potatoes, looks like his head was stuck in the birth canal for 4 hours and they had to beat him out with a stick."

If Don Frye was a Gynecologist, he wouldn't do C-sections, he'd beat the baby out with a stick!

Damn! I can't believe I let that one slip by. I guess I was still trying to figure out the puppy in Don Frye's back riddle. Thanks for covering for me!

You should never pass by on a chance to tell someone what she said!

Sunset:


I was hanging out with Mr NoNaMe the other day, and surprisingly, the conversation turned to tiki and carving. He asked if I was still carving in the livingroom. Since I wasn't carving at the time, I had to sadly inform him that I have a more typical livingroom currently. However, time marches on and things change, and once again my livingroom looks a little more like "Home, Sweet Home":

Poki has been contributing to the mess as well. She likes to make small pieces out of larger ones as well

It's not a living room, it's a working room.

Here's the progress sequence:

A little done on the eyes


More eye work:



Some mouth work and some sanding done:



Now I have to do a couple pain in the ass cut thrus in some hard ass wood...
Buzzy Out!
