Wow, Crazy Al! This is the first time GROG has found this thread. GROG really like your tikis.

Now Bosko, when you're carving, do you make a sketch first, or just start carving and let the wood inspire you. And do you make the first cuts with a chainsaw?

Thanks again Tikidiablo, and I like your warclubs as well.

(By the way, did GROG mention that GROG have dementia?)

GROG: I wanted to answer you, but I've been asleep for the last couple of days and my tiki army did the work for me. You see, I have insomnia: constantly. If you ever read or saw Fight Club, when Ed Norton explains his insomnia, that's how I feel most of the time. Last couple of nights, I've been falling asleep at about 6 or 7 in the morning. then I sleep for about two hours or so, and the cycle continues until I sleep for a couple days straight. Every once in a while, things seem different when I awake. Out of place. It all made sense tonight when I awoke suddenly at midnight...

The moon wasn't full, but it was out


I heard a party at the neighbor's house. turns out, it was in my garage. I opened the door to find my tiki fight club army having a small party. I was surprised to see a coconut monkey amongst them. Everyone knows mini tikis and coco monkeys don't get along. It's one of those old country things. At any rate, all was well; they just finished a drinking game called flip cup, and the coco monkey was the obvious loser.


Things quickly went downhill. The tiki fight club army, which has actually been carving all my tikis too, doused the coco monkey with 151 and lit him on fire. here they are celebrating the sacrifice. I would have stopped them, but I thought it would be more important to take pictures, gather evidence and let the criminal justice and medical care systems take care of the aftermath.


The next part of the ritual entailed channeling the spirits of CA, B,and TD.


I am transcribing what they are getting off of the ouija board:
Tikis: Are you B?
OuijaBoard: No
tikis:Are you TD?
OB: No
tikis:Are you CA?
OB: Yes
Tikis: Do you have a message for GROG, CA?
OB: yes
Tikis: What is your message for GROG?
OB: T
OB: I
OB: K
OB: I
OB: M
OB: A
OB: N
OB: I
OB: A
OB: .
OB: C
OB: O
OB: M

Tikis: Thanks CA
OB: Aloha

Benzart: New connection along with a new computer is taking up all my time. Remember back when your harddrive went out...My days were spent searching boxes of old computer wires and discs, looking for that one stupid driver disc that I need to do all the cool stuf computers can do. there's that old thread what keeps me from carving. last few months has been what haven't I been doing because I have been carving. Finally caught up to me and I got tired of woodchip covered junk all over my house and have been trying to get stuff cleaned up. One of my pretiki phase friends came over recently and said my house looks like the Tiki Mad Sceintist's lab. I decided to do some stuff around the house because of the holiday traffic and also,my next carving is at someone's house, and there is traffic between that house and me. I hate traffic...Now that I think about it, that band Traffic sucks too.
Oh yeah, a week off? No. Just did boring stuff. And slept. But since I brought it up, here's my work from the last couple of days:
Someone ordered a custom sign from me. It looks just like another sign that I made a couple weeks ago, but the letters are different on this one and the bamboo is three inch stock, rather than two.

Lot of curves on the letters take more of my time

I sanded and stained a cheap tiki too.

Dark tikis done at night in my garage dont photo well.
And finally, I'm never OK...

Buzzy Out!

Nooooooo!!! Not the coconut monkey! Oh the horror!Basement Kahuna, GROG can't believe you just stood there and took pictures and let this happen to the poor guy.Tikis are usually pretty just, so this monkey fellow must have done something to deserve his fate.

GROG doesn't have insomnia, but GROG does have dementia and can't remember if GROG slept or not, so GROG'll just take little nap now and then anyways.

GROG's ouija board is broken, it only picks up weather reports and transmissions from traffic control from an airport in Denver.

By special request...

Tutorial #1: Tiki drafting & Mass removal
I want to take a huge, sweeping chunk out of this log

I draw a center line with a handy 4' drywall tsquare

I saw some drywallers using one of these one time and I knew I needed one. Comes in handy for tall tikis

After I make the center line, I make a grid one ruler width away from the centerline, many times in each direction

The next thing that I do is freehand one side of the curve. Where my curve hits a grid line on the left, I put a hash mark on the right, corresponding grid

I do this at each intersection, and then connect the dots. It should look the same on both sides

Everything to the right of the line will now be removed

I use a log stump with a gouge in it to hold the log in place while I chainsaw

I start by making a series of scores between the two lines. I keep the saw blade as level as possible, trying to stay between the lines

I stop real close to the line on both sides, keeping the saw blade level

here is the whole thing scored

I could take it all out with the chainsaw, but it scares me to use it. I use chisels to hack out the chunks. It goes pretty fast

I try to space the scores as wide as the chisel that I will use to remove it with. Two sizes here: Man or wimp sized

After all is removed, I take it down as smooth as possible with the chainsaw. I kind of let the teeth "peel out" and move it side to side to prevent it from digging in.

the last step is to smooth the surface marks left by the saw

I use my largest gouge to do this. A flat chisel will work too, just watch the angle, don't go too deep

it's this smooth when i'm done

More later.

I have no idea what is going on here...I'm making it up as I go along. It's a tiki doodle.
