Nice logs, only thing missing are the tikis.

No first Pineapple carve and no trailer loads of tikis to Socal.

I wanted to carve today, but I didn't feel like working on this guy:

I wanted to "warm up", so I decided to carve that sliver I made a couple of days ago. I had no plan, just kind of winged it. I wanted to carve it fast, and not get hung up on it:

About an hour or so worth of work

Taking a break, how it looks now:

Eyes, head, and a little leg work and he'll be a runner

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign...
Another custom sign that makes no sense to me:

This one has the three inch bamboo upgrade:

I used some black bamboo for the letters on these

The black bamboo was coated with clear. Before, I used to stain natural bamboo with wood stain and cover it with a spray on shellac. I like the look of the black bamboo better.

Buzzy Out!

McTiki: I picture in my imagination a group of friends, all together partying, and they have a drinking ritual: They all do a shot and yell "Kaboom!" and slam their glasses down. They have been doing the same ritual for years, probably started in high school. So, when they wanted a sign in their bar that echoes their drinking spirit, "kaboom" it was. Actually, I think it's for a liquor or sports drink that they promoting at a golf tournament later this month.
Your old job sounds like a blast(You've never heard that one!)


Couldn't sleep last night, so i did some more on this guy

It's carved out of a 6 foot 90 degree wedge.Here's how it looks from the side

...and the back

It will sit flush in a corner of a room or it may be a fence post in my front yard, time will tell...

I think last night was finally the turning point in the Buzzy vs. The Rats in the Kitchen war. Two more notches on my death tally added...
Rat Trapper Buzzy Out!

Yeah, Cool in the corner tiki. Well done use of an Odd-ball size piece of wood that most people would have just thrown away. You're also getting pretty top knotch with those signs..

Great stuff! I swear Im going to have to 'go big' one of these days... Ditto what others have said, good idea on the corner piece & love the Bar signs (might have to wander the neighbourhood to pilfer some bamboo for my own kaboom-room...) T3

KTD: He looks like a "lurker", doesn't he? I'm still trying to find when it is acceptable to leave the bark on. When I've tried in the past, it really didn't work out. This one is ok, I just have trouble with the knee pads. He looks like one of those hip hop fly girl dancer chicks. After seeing how it came out, I was thinking of doing two matching ones to be placed in the same room, kind of like a pair of giant wall frames, from floor to ceiling.

If I could just learn to carve stuff amazingly fast on a small scale, then I could actually do the tikis too...But, they need to be affordable. I think I need to get another tool, though. A small japanese pruning saw to make cleaner cuts on the black bamboo. Or maybe a band saw...

T3: I hear you're kind of new here on TC, and have been "making the rounds." Glad you dropped by. Funny what you say about going big: when I check out your stuff; Paipo, Gman, and Ben's too, I find myself swearing that I'll have to go small one day. Then I look at those big logs in my front yard...

Now for the big log in my back yard:
I was sufficently warmed up, so I went back to the challenges of this one's lower body

I'm working on the right side, his left, our right, all right.

More daylight and a lot more to do.

Hewey: I cannot take credit for this log's shape; it actually grew naturally into that shape. I was feeling lazy, so I figured I'd just go with it to save time. I have the other side of the log still, and I am going to turn it over the other way for my next one...

Fell asleep last night before I posted the sunset update:
Here's the sunset

Here's the tiki as he appeared at sunset


October and November sunsets are always the best around these parts...

Lost One Whole Night of Work Buzzy Out!

Hey Buzz, It took me awhile to figure how he was sitting, but once I opened my eyes I realized how cool a guy he really is. The sunset is gorgeous too!
