Just so the world knows: That pinstriping job on my vaccuum was done by TC legend Hewey of Down Under. I reckon I got the tikiest vaccuum around.

Made a new sticker for my fake company too:

This is part of my new Back to School line:


I'm waiting to break down a party later tonight. Earlier today, i did a longboard tournament and scored a pile of clothes. An interesting item was this Shag shirt:

It has a custom logo for the Luau and tournament on the front:

Earier in the week, when the surf was real bad, I told my friend it was a great week for a contest. In the spirit of the old PSAA venues, the no wave pattern held.
There's the judges' booth and such down on the beach. The waves will look bigger if they use binoculars. All that the contest needs now is some wind...

New Wardrobe Wearin' Buzzy Out!

Benzart: I'm spending WAY too much time on taht guy, but so far, the results seem to be worth the effort. Right now, I'm working on adding some more dark toned areas to balance out a three shade value scale without just firing up the torch and covering it all black. I plan to coat this one with a clear stain, so I want some darker areas too.
Some day poor Zaya will get to try her burner out...

Meanwhile, I just cannot shake the urge to hack, hack hack away at logs of all shapes(round) and sizes(not too big to move). My next project is the second two six footers for the miniature golf course. Started first one today after I got my beauty sleep(i"m still tired, and ugly, though.)
I used a split log because they need to sit flush with the surf shack wall.

That single speaker cassette tape player is my work tunes provider. While I was carving this today, I was listening to a tape I bought at the swap meet for 25 cents earler this morning. Man that Hewey Lewis guys absolutely ROCKS! That "Sports" album kicks @$$!
I'm taking what they're giving, cause I'm working for a living!!! You guys should feel sorry for me because I have to work on Sundays.

I saved some money for a Marantz Quad receiver that I saw at the swap meet for a month. I got there, cash in hand, it was gone. It's a swap meet given...
I'm glad I got all those new shirts this weekend, now I do not have to do laundry for two more weeks. Leaves me time to doodle on my tiki(Shut up Hewey! It's not what you vulgar Aussies think.)
Working on 6 tikis concurrently: I just ant to finish ONE!
Back to Work On Too Much Stuff At Once BUzzy Out!

Greetings all!
I've been having all these tiki related ideas swarming through my head the last few days. The day before yesterday, I got an idea and finally ran with it today.
I know I always complain about those indonesian carvers working for pennies a day, producing quality carvings and stealing the livelyhoods of we, the american carvers and makers of tiki related objects; however, like Crazy AL said about his curious OA tiki, he wouldn't carve a small $40 tiki. Well, there's no way I'm going to try to compete with them by making a smaller tiki that retails for $14 either. I'm totally against buying my foreign competitors products, so after work #1 today, I worked for someone else in exchange for a bounty of imported items. I traded my spoiled lazy indolent American work hours for the products of the underpaid slave wage carvers of Indonesia. I came out better than they did because my country is richer than theirs and we get rich of the exploitation of their peoples. Here is the stuff I received for my valuable American time:

Today was already profitable, in that I worked and got all this loot. I felt really greedy and wanted to make more money to feed my American consumptive ways. I added value to the pre carved statues by enhancing them with a wood burner and adding a coat of clear shellac, thus increasing my profit margin slightly.

Feeling the need to purchase more wasteful products that advertisers convince me I need, it is necessary to increase the profit margin even higher. A little bamboo goes a long way in the marketing and sale of tropical products

Hey look, it's my first tiki bar sign:

I'd like to thank those Indo boys for making this happen


Now how to double, or even triple your profits:
Make another one, similar, but different and better. Hopefully, the same guy will buy both both and not haggle you down

It's my second sign from my favorite angle:

Look-Tikis, bamboo, rope-how many more tiki essentials do you need? Fancy stuff makes it cost more. I need more money to pay taxes to help the schools and fix our roads. Nice details and cheap, overseas products and labor helps the economy. Buying tiki stuff is good for the country. Call a tiki producer today! Or are you a traitor?

My product line is HUGE now...(Hewey-that means I have a lot of stuff that I make-not the other...)

Recession Proof Buzzy Out!

Nice signs BayPark, and it looks like a great deal for thise carvings. Even tho they were "Mass Produced" by a family of Indo carvers, stydy them well because they were carved by Master carvers who have sold their soul to the almighty dollar. Those guys are capable of carving the most beautiful, intricate designs ever and they produce this stuff for pennies. There are som good chops in these pieces. Look at how they are done,,Learn well from them.
Keep the fire burning!

Hiltiki: Thanks for the tune...
Tiki Duddy: Those little ones: I bought those. If I were to carve those, it would take about half a day each. Then I wouldn't be able to sell them because the signs would have to cost $400. So, I did a little work in exchange for some products and took some "raw" carvings from indonesia in exchange and fixed them up slightly. Then I made signs with them and a few other things that were laying around. The plan is to be able to further finance my tool and carving habits through tiki endeavors. Originally, I was just going to use bamboo for the signs, but then I had the idea to place tikis for the vertical frame pieces when the guy who I worked for offered them up. I think that they look great. The eventual plan is to make a frame with my carvings on it, but for now, I'm just figuring out the best way to construct these.

Visited the owl yesterday:



He's gettting bigger...

Yesterday, Zaya got me something called a "Benzart Carving Seminar" for my birthday. I've never heard of that. I'll look on google on MY new laptop to see what it is.
Birthday Loot Buzzy Out!
