Too funny Buzz I've hacked up a little ficus myself, I think it's a beautiful wood - can't wait to see the finished product.

Today's sunset:

It's almost to the part where we'll see the bay water in the shots

warm one again today


After messing around for a couple days on the cane, it's time to get serious and get back to work. today was reserved for the third cannibal, The Eater.
It was here at the start of the day


First I notched in the ear tops to establish the head width


More of the ear is revealed as the temples are carved in

The little tiki is marked here to help me see the piece as a whole

Cleaning the sides of the heads to the top of the arms:


Head width established and the little guy's body blockedin




Sunset, and I had this much done:


the mouth opening is started

It's really ugly right there. good thing I don;t think it;s finished yet


Everything getting cleaned up a bit with one knee started



Both knees done now, arms cleaned, and one side of torso started




Other side of torso done


It's getting there:

no more for today...

I agree. Here are some pieces I did out of ficus in the past:


(the 5 smallest ones are basswood)

BUZZY, Thats Totally Funny and the name too, '"Wang Tang", Only from the sick Mind of the Buzz Master!



Yeah, calling it "Tiki # 189" just doesn't roll off the tongue as well...

I hope all the mosquitoes that got me last night are full.
Buzzy Out!

Today's sunset:

It's supposed to get cooler soon...

Just a touch more work on the cannibal today. I started by doing a little cutout between the tiki bodies:



Next I had to get rid of all the wood between the arms:



Here it is now:



It's getting real, real close now...

Buzzy Out!

Cheers Ben!

Here's the same one from down here:




More Cannibal progress. I didn;t like the angle of the forehead, so I started off by lowering its "grade %" a bit. Then I hollowed the mouth:


Blurry picture of ears done a little more. I'll soften them up a bit in the sanding process. i also did the legs a bit to give him some feet


Legs separated in the back


Then I drew the face


After that, I carved it. I gave him some chompers too:


I'll do the little man tomorrow and sand him up a bit before I do the final details


Here's the set:

I think all the sets of these cannibals I've seen have them all the same height. That never made sense to me because the one guy is standing, and the other two are kneeling and sitting. In my set, the standing guy is taller, like I think he should be.

It is. Like I've always said. If I can do it, then anyone certainly can.



I hope it doesn't rain tomorrow.
Buzzy Out!

Stopped by the House of Buzz yesterday and since Buzzy is temporarily banned, I snapped these pics to show y'all what he's been banned to.

The view from his back porch;



The mysterious Buzzy's Island, with roller coaster in the background. Keep in mind that Buzzy's Island is a man-made coral atoll with a shallow, clean lagoon in the middle filled with fish and shells that is warmed naturally to about 75-80 degrees year round.



Buzzy's Point;



Buzzy WILL BE BACK!

Today's sunset:


Hanford banished me for a while because I wouldn't stop instigating havoc here on TC. He got tired of me throwing my matches on all the powder kegs. It sure was fun while it lasted, though.(for me!)

Ok, back to the tiki stuff...

If you were on facebook last week, you might have seen my updates there on how I took this ficus wood:



And carved it down to this mini taiaha:


Gotta love the way that ficus turns out

I carved this design on both sides

I even did abalone inlays for it



I also drew up the graphic for the drum and have started hacking away at it:





Thanks to Babalu and Cammo for guest hosting.
Buzzy Out!
