I haven't moved the shop vac out there yet...or the carpet. How about an old sunrise I never posted:


I forgot about one past project when i posted the other day. I redid the interior of another vintage trailer. It's all tapa-ed out. here's the fridge and closet:


Dining area:


sleeping area:


Kitchen:



Here's the prop and engine on the plane:


Crazy Kelly Osbourne had an Explorer engine in his yard that he donated and welded the prop mount on it:


Here's the wing of the plane made to funtion as a bartop and seating area:

It's good to see some of the nuts & bolts work, too - not just that glamorous artsy stuff.



More nuts and bolts work...

I "lost" my old carving stand somwhere on the road, so I had to make a new one:

It looks funny with no sticker on it.

And I cut a piece off of an old Benzart pole to make it more shipping friendly:




From the Desert Fun and Games department...

We're fixing the lake here, and to do that, we had to get rid of all the water. We didn;t want to waste it, so we decided to make a mud bog track to drive cars through. Local legend Crazy Kelly-O was first to try it, and he didn't quite make it all the way through:


Two quotes from Crazy Kelly-O right after landing here: "I sunk like a rock!" and "I'm going to be here all night..."


"No problem" he says, "my girlfriend has a 4WD and she'll come tow me out..."


Ooops!


So then comes Victor with a truck and trailer with a tractor on it to the rescue, blazing right off the road into the desert sand. Right after I asked Kelly-O, "Hey, didn't Victor get stuck the last time he drove his truck with a trailer through there?", Victor got stuck there.


I went and got the Official Mojave Oasis 4wd jeep and came back and pulled Victor out. Then I went and pulled Kelly-O's girlfriend out. While I was towing her out, Victor got his truck stuck again. I went and towed him out again and parked the jeep back at Mojave Oasis.

We never bothered to shut off the pump, so Kelly-O's Bronco was pretty deep by now. He hit a deser "tree" trying to get out and had to cut it off the axle:


Meanwhile, Victor got the tractor there and made Kelly an exit road:


Victor carves Kelly-O's front end out:


Kelly finally got free and wanted to try a run at it again, but we told him if he got stuck, we wouldn;t help him out again. He left, and Victor worked on a little "habitat restoration" until the tractor engine seized:


We called local legend Crazy Kelly-O to come and tow the tractor out:


Kelly struggles to free the tractor:


Until he gets stuck again:


He digs again while I go and get the Official Mojave Oasis Jeep 4wd and tow him out:


I get him out, he gets Victor out, and we all ride off, or are towed off, into the sunset:


Some fun it was!

And finally, Mojave Ice Trees in full bloom:


The First Annual Tiki Ray Fishing Derby is under way here as well. I'll have pictures of that soon!
Buzzy Out!

I was jealous before this, but now I'M REALLY FREAKIN' JEALOUS!!!!

And other than that, I got a gun a while back and I've been doing a lot of shooting.
So much,in fact, that I built a shooting range on the property:

What an epic tale! You made that up, right? A "Buzzy dog story"?:

"A shaggy dog story is an extremely long-winded tale featuring extensive narration of typically irrelevant incidents, usually resulting in a pointless or absurd punchline. These stories are a special case of yarns, coming from the long tradition of campfire yarns."

Way to have fun in the desert! It must be the Mojave version of a truck pull:



When I had moved here a thirty years ago, one of my first sports events I went to was an indoor truck pull, just to confirm what a strange place I had landed in.

Hey, how about a "Tiki Pull" at Mojave Oasis !?

A little update from the shop:

I'm getting it all set up now!

I got a new load of logs from SD home and had to square them out

While I was doing that, I kept looking at a few scraps of wood that I had stored in there that were "calling" me

On a whim, I used some of the wood and knocked out a couple Witco copies:

It was more of tool test for some new saws and cutty tools I just got...

One of the Mojave crew welded some brackets on the wall so i could start building my work table

3 x 8' of usable work space. Hopefully I can get it all tacked together today.

Come on out Cammo! I'll give you the Mojave redneck immersion program: Shootin', off roadin', fixin' machines, and stealin' abandoned property.

It's just "another day in the life...." tale. If any of you wonder why I don't carve as much as I used to, just check that post and see how my time out here vanishes into the desert dust. That was a nice 5 hour distraction!

that's what I get for paying attention to what goes on outside the fence. Lesson learned!


Back out there...

I caught a nice sunrise a couple of days ago:


Back at the shop, I finished the new worktable


Now I have to work on the walls:

so far, It's been working out well in there.

And, I still have this side to grow into:


In tiki making news, I put some finish on these guys:


I'm also learning some power new tools that I just got, as well as some wood I've never worked with, so I knocked out a quick marq test piece:

It's got a few problems. I can really tell that I freehanded the original drawing because the symmetry is way off. It also looks a little blocky and plain.

So, for my second attempt, I did a better initial layout and outlined the piece a little differently:

I also got rid of some details that didn;t work and stained it darker. A little better, but still off in a lot of ways

It was noticeably better than the first, but it was still a little plain and doesn't make good use of the negative space. I stenciled the second piece and drew out a more elaborate piece with the same original design:


Here's the finished piece:

Much better, but I don't like the mouth. Next practice piece will try to fix that...

All three together:


It was a nice day today. That means the bugs, wind, extreme heat, or cold is on the way!
Buzzy Out!

those look fantastic. Great job!

I must also say that I am extremely intrigued by your piece of property. Looks like you have your own little slice of heaven there brother.

Keep up the good work!!!

Today's sunset:

Wind it was, but it came too late to ruin anything


I went back to work on that stencil image that I was messing with yesterday. Before I did the mirrored piece, I did a practice piece with the new mouth:

I connected a couple lines so there were some really long contours to cut out. The outline was jazzed up a bit too

The progression over three tries:

The mouth worked, so...

On to the new mirrored version:

That one worked out ok

Still more hours in the day, so I tried another mirrored one, but this one was done with a cutout for the mouth:

I guess it's cool, if you're into that cutout thing.

Recap of today's efforts:


The Midweek Collection:



I also found some time to wrap the rope around the base of this guy:

that took forever.

Definitely a diamond in the rough. Just never ever leave the fenceline.

No. But when I do, I'm trading your camper shell for a little bag of it. Danny's ladder too.

I need more lumber, and another stencil...

Just carve yourself a great big Geodesic Dome that covers your place fenceline to fenceline, then AC the whole thing:


Fig. 1

You'll also need a deck that floats 1' off the ground to avoid the local crawlies. (See Fig. 1)
In and out entry tubes can be placed at the leeward side of the wind, or the whole dome can be rotated depending on weather conditions.

Anything The Mirage in Las Vegas can do, Buzzy can do better!
