If GROG buy a log from Buzzy, it would be "the GROG log". AH HA HA HA!! GROG crack GROG up.

Now what were we talking about again?

Oh yeah. Nice big-assed carving you're doing there, compadre.

I started today's adventures by taking out a 90 degree wedge from a six and a half foot mexican fan palm log.
the plan is to use this as the corner piece on my bamboo tiki front yard fence. Here are the 3/4 of the log that are left:

I think that I will install it before I carve the tiki on it. That way, I cannot change my mind and sell it and never finish this home project. Here is the back side of the log. I will connect the fence cross beams to the edges to make the corner of the fence. Like a tiki pilaster-kind of.

I also have this cool looking six foot plus sliver left over:


Did some more work on this guy this afternoon:

I kind of like this one, so far...

I cannot figure out which is more important in carving: what you take away, or what you leave? This is what I have left over or still to do, which ever way you want to look at it.


TD: Sorry to hear of your stress, glad you're back around here. Good luck finding a new camera.
Benzart: I was injured for a few days. Had to stay away from my tools and TC so I wouldn't become inspired and not rest adequately. Doing a little better now...

Getting Better Buzzy Out!

Hey dude

Last night the wagon got its "San Diego Tiki Factory" sticker and one of your tiki stickers next to it. The bug copped one the splitty stickers and a tiki sticker too looks tops, Ill get some pics eventually... At least theyll be on there when we fire her up - hopefully in a couple of weeks!

THE UFC-TIKI CONNECTION
I really wanted to see GSP and Matt Hughes fight for the second time after GSP beat BJ Penn. Too bad George hurt himself training. I like the little of what I've seen of BJ in the past, but I was disappointed that he gassed against GSP in his loss to him a couple months back. I didn't really have a favorite between Hughes and Penn this weekend;I just wanted to see a good fight. Even up until right before the fight started, I still had no favorite.
Then...
The arena went dark, the camera cut to BJ walking out of his dressing room, and I saw the team shirts that BJ's crew came down in:

After seeing his choice of walkdown attire, he was obviously my choice to win the fight. Every molecule of my body wanted him to win that night. I've watched that fight about ten times now, and each time it gets harder for me to watch. That sucks that the Hawaiian guy with the tiki shirt lost. I still think Matt Hughes is cool;but, BJ is just way cooler, and way more tiki, in my opinion too.

I think: We, as Tiki Central participants, should adopt BJ Penn as our favorite fighter, from now on, because he wore a tiki shirt into the octagon-Thus solidifing the Tiki-UFC connection that I've been encouraging on this thread. Who else, other than a Hawaiian in a tiki shirt, could possibly be a better fighter for we, the Tiki and fighting enthusists to rally behind?

BJ Penn Fan Buzzy Out!

Hey BayPark, I'm glad the injury wasn't too serious and that you are back to work. Your latest is looking great

It's like I'm there now. When I close my eyes, I can actually SEE it-except for the letters, that is. Strange, I think I hear GROG though...

Grogian Slip Buzzy Out!

Benzart: Someone asked me if you were the guy from Florida who first put a pineapple on a tiki. Are you this man? Someone else asked me if you used to come to California "back in the day" about once a year with a trailer full of tikis that you used to sell . I do not know the answers to these questions. Should I try the search function before I ask you directly?

I didn't have time to carve today. Another sign means I can buy the fixtures for GMAN's room in my tiki island mansion though:

It's always interesting to see what people want on these signs. I found that the easiest way to cut the letters is with my handy 1" flat chisel. It helps to have a backstop to deflect and gather the smaller pieces.

The Big Time:
I got some more logs delivered today. Nice, big logs.
Here is a nine foot and seven foot log, which will become tikis one day:

Hiltiki: Lots of dimension

I also got another 9,8, and 7 footer. Along with a couple 6 footers and a couple small 5 and a half footers

Strange view from the perspective that a 5.5 foot log is "small." I now have enough logs in my yard - for the next few months at least. I'm guess I'm in the beginning stages of a large scale carvings phase.
Hey GROG, Do you want a big log?

Big Log Buzzy Out! Heh, heh...
