A couple sunsets:




Two tiki legs look like this now:

Third one always goes real fast...

It's nothing. Just an old stick of wood with some tiki carvings, inlays, and a bunch of marks all carved into it...
You actually need one of those canes that pulls out into a sword. Only the sword is carving knife.

I will put a picture up when I can. Buzzy, the lady who gave it to me comes and visits here and there... I can't give it away yet.

Yesterday's sunset:

Today's looked just like that

Now the three legs look pretty much like this:


They're getting pretty close to being done now. I'll do the smallest details after I do the bell part so that they will not break off while I'm carving on it.

I'll find one some day...Do you have any pictures of the fancy new deck? I'd like to see it all lived in.

Speakimg of canes, here's my PNG cane I found last year:


It has some nice figures and faces carved down it.

Starting with the handle face


Moving down, first:


second:


and third figures:


Ornately carved all over it. Now from the side:


All the figures and faces are done back to back:

Buzz, will this drum have a bottom vent? Maybe you'll do that after the legs are done? As always, killer drum!

I can't tell if this was sunset today, but I took the picture around the time that the sun usually sets:


I spent the evening last night watching all the episodes of the last season of Entourage and carving out the three drum legs. They're all to this point now:

The eyes, chin, and headress details will be carved right after I do the bell.

Blurry picture, sorry. I must have caught "the shakes" by that point last night



I wanted to relax a little after the high stress drum carving session yesterday so I started on the first cannibal guy today:

I plan on spending my evening working on it.

Nope...I did that last July. Here's a flashback from that happy time:

... I set my goal to get all the way through on the drum:


The happiest moment of all is when I see that daylight shining through it. Hooray! After this step, it's all easy going until it's done:

That's a 42" tunnel.



I'd take a picture of how I snuggled it between the legs, but I don;t want to hurt my back moving it. It was a pain to get it on the table! It's still top heavy until after I carve the bell. I left an extra inch inside of it for support while I carve the outside of it. It will be a reasonable weight after I hollow it out the final time.

I hope there's something good on tv tonight.

Wow. Kicking major ass on those drum legs Buzz! I love the classic Kona Style you went with for the tikis, for sure one of my favorites!

The drums are really something special, and you've got the market cornered!

Good luck with the Cannibal, and I hope you get some sun soon!

The sun came out today. Later on, it set:

It looks like the sun will start setting on the water every night. One of the two palm trees that used to mark that spot on the horizon is gone. Bye bye sun calendar...

Cannibal work from last night:


I walked out into my yard yesterday and immediately noticed that something was drastically different out there. My once proud and tall bird of paradise plant was no longer quite so tall. The cause:

She's about shoulder high right there. She takes a running flying leap to get up on the nest/shelf that she made for herself.
Now she spends her time lying up there on the plant, chewing on her toys:

I have no idea what possessed her to do that...She seems to really enjoy it up there.

I got this huge list of things that I want to carve some day, and somehow the cannibals jumped to the top of that list. Lists are weird like that. The sun made a comeback today. It's supposed to get in the 80's out here on the coast this weekend.

Last night was a horrible night for background tv programming. I hope tonight's fare is better...

Because I have more carving to do.

It's a perfect day for carving:


Quick update on the Cannibal:




I'm happy that I have to go to work now.

Today's sunset:


I got some more done on the cannibal. In progress:



Here he is now:

I'm just a couple details and refinements away from wrapping this guy up!
Tomorrow I get back to working on the drum...

Buzzy Out!

The first Cannibal of the set is all carved now:

I still might have to thin the thumbs a bit. I'll have to look at it some more and see if it clashes with my inate sense of proportion:


I feel like this:


Buzzy Out!

End of Day picture:

It was sunny most of the day...

Back to the drum now. My first task was to sand the parts that I'll be working on next:


Next step was to carve in the details on the bell base. Here's what my view was for most of the afternoon:

It appears to be a very simple cut, but it was damn hard to execute.

Top angled section done,


now ready to move down a bit for the horizontal section:


These cuts worked better with the drum laying flat:


Flip and repeat for the last row of triangles:


All done with that section:

It's just that I don't have anything else better to do right now. Carving's a real time killer.


Someday, someone will knock on my door, offer me a real job, and take me away from all this...
