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!






pain in the ass like this?



long live the rabbits!!

No, like this:

9 inches of log to go through at an angle, on a curve, and with the top ever so close to chipping off, carving against the grain on them top cuts. That's the type of pain in the ass it is!

I still cant picture it but every little cut is a suprise....



Here it is making a little more sense with the two new pain in the ass cuts:

Same cuts from the back:


Cleaned up a little, and now the detailing begins:

The indented part on the base is where I'l wrap some rope.

Sunset:


I finished carving the tiki last night:

The base will be dark, the tiki, a little lighter

the rope will look the same

Now that my warmup carving is done, I have a whole lot of work to do.
and I'll start it all tomorrow...
Buzzy Out!

Buzzy, that's cool! What is it? I mean is it going to be used as a banister or..... Nice though. What's the inspiration for this one?

I trying to get "rounder" in my work. Trying to get away from carvings that are shaped like tubes or the original log. Stylewise, for this one,I wanted to a Marq on a base with some rope, like this one I did forever ago:

Kind of like an update of an earlier piece...The arms turned out to be too wide for the rope on them like I planned. I was thinking of a banister when I was carving it. It started to look a little like one. I just need to use a skinnier piece of wood. This one's a little to short and stocky for a banister, though.

It's finally summer here!
Buzzy Out!

Sunsets...

I almost missed it yesterday:


Today:


It's time to work on the big drum again. Last time I worked on it, I pulled a stomach muscle and had to take a few weeks off of carving. I survived my warmup carving, so it's get 'er done time.

I got the stencils made for the legs this afternoon:

Front, sides, they're all there and ready:


I have to sharpen all my chisels before I do anything on it. that should take about half a day...they're in horrible shape.

I once started with a big log:


Then I took a 90 degree slice out of it:


Here's the leftover pie slice:


And what I made from that pie slice:




#52 all finished up:

I carved the crust of the pie, instead of the filler like Bumatay did on his pie slices...

#59 was the leftover pie that I made my fence corner tiki out of:


And here's #115, my quick nod to Bumatay


Does all that count as bumatay pie slice tiki?

Well done. It's a nice departure from the usual stuff (which is superior anyways).

I missed yesterday's sunset, so here's today's sunrise instead:

That view makes me glad I'm not a morning person.

The end of today was much prettier than the start of it:


I was looking on the horizon for the two trees that mark the sun setting on the water, but it looks like one is missing. I hope that it got carved into some nice tikis.

I'm carving the drum legs now. here's the start of the first one:

I'm doing all three legs in stages instead of one at a time like I usually do. that's because this is a carve I'm familar with, so I don't have to teach myself how to do it right before I replicate it.

Here I go on the second one:


Buzzy Out!

Unbelievably amazing sunset today, San Diego has been getting great pink cotton candy sunrises as well! Whenever I see these sunsets now I wonder if Buzz is jumping up and running out to the back porch like a newsman seeing smoke.

i'll trade you for a big pile Mitch's shirts; two pairs of trunks, one red one blue; and a pair of flip flops, because Poki ate mine.

If you ever see anything you like before it gets passed on, I'll trade it for that maori cane and the tahitian adze you have.

Anyone else have anything* they want to trade for my tikis?

New tikis for old! New tikis for old!
Buzzy Out!

*excludes mugs. Other restrictions may apply.
