Now that is an impressive haul! Wonder what the neighbours think? Buzzy if you are reading this stop and go out start carving - you need to clear some room for these guys!

Today's sunset, please do not look directly at it:


I put some clear on these guys today:

I like this grain pattern

I want to get some good sunlight pictures of them. I ran out of time today. I had to watch a repeat of Ortiz beating Shamrock. Oh! That was live? You've seen one Ortiz beatdown of Shamrock by Ortiz, you've seen them all...How many commercials did I watch in 2 hours?

As for those logs at Zaya's:
So that's what 23 trees looks like. Looks like 60-80 logs. They estimated 80-100.
This picture is the "before" one for my upcoming career retrospective:


Hewey: I think it would be easier to move my tarp and four poles and relocate the "factory" to the logs. If you look through the gate in this next picture, you can see my 65 vw bus stored in there. I could make that the new headquarters. I could then live in my bus, and be the crazy dude who lives in his car and carves tikis(actually, that sounds like a cliche)


Zaya: Thanks for the pictures. saved me a trip up there. Before you start bringing those down here, can you strip them first? It would save me time and you are always offering to help. Feel free to use any of those you want. Pull out the ones that I can make into chairs first...

McTiki: I know the feeling...

Those Logs Left Me Speechless Buzzy Out!

You're going to need a roll-off sized dumpster for all that husk!

Buzzy, my mildly psychotic or is it psychic abilities(I always get them mixed up) see this in your near future...






My condolences on what you're about to endure.

4WD: I counted those logs. Actually, stopped at around 170. probably need a few dumpsters. But hey, if I can get 200 logs delivered, I can probably scrape up a dumpster or two...
Heath: My future isn't so bleak. I'm going to take advantage of the price savings of the California foreign labor exchange market. I'm going to not be selfish and let some poor guy feed his his family off tiki toil, rather than do it myself for free. I'm so glad to help the California economy keep on rolling as i build my tiki empire..

Meanwhile,Ive hit an all time tiki low. I've reduced myself to a tiki whore to pay someone to clean logs for me. Some guy bought an import tiki that retails for less than 200. He wanted me to "fix it up all cool." Here it is before, looking like a piece of unfinished furniture. (I did not carve this tiki)

I'm like an auto body tiki guy. Here it is "fix[ed] up all cool." I need to learn pinstriping...(I did not carve this tiki)


I did a jungle themed party out in the mountains at a cat rescue compound. they arranged it so I could be there at feeding time.
Here is a cat eating a chicken:

This cat would only take food by hand

When a horse ran by about 100 yards away, all the tigers went totally crazy. If it wasn't some sort of federal crime, I would have liked to open the gate and see four tigers take down a horse. Now that I think about it, I'll probably go back next year and do it, when my brother graduates from law school. Then I'd probably just get probation and i can pay the lawyer fees when I sell the Video to Fox's when animals attack.

All of the different cats ate chicken, and some sort of red meat with fur on it. In fact, the fur was similar to these guys, and a few goats on the hill...

That must be what they mean by the profitable part of alpaca farming. I was wondering what those people in the commercials do with all the alpacas they raise.

In Observance of the UFC Holiday Weekend, Buzzy Out!

Cool, did you carve thet tiki? . WHile Zaya is srtripping the bark off those logs, have her rough them out so you can do the finish quicker on them. It'll save you a bundle of time and you would have almost No mess to clean up.

Thats a respectible log pile!

Hiltiki: I'll pick you up out in front of Home Depot at 6am. I take care of my workers, so the job includes a lunch, so please order in advance from the provided menu:

Your Boss Buzzy Out!

It was just the one year anniversary of when I got smacked in the face with the chainsaw while carving. I marked the occasion by waking up, grabbing my chainsaw, and safely cutting a log in half with it. After making this single cut, I took the rest of the day off.

The path of the sun is quickly changing and my shade tree is growing back, so I decided to break down the big summer shade setup. This way is much more open:


Been waiting to get these for a while now...

...so I can FINALLY finish this one


In between burning sessions, I've been screwing around carving this face

I'm going to attempt to cram another one of those small bodies under this head.

It's happened several times now. I wake up in a panic. A nightmare. It goes like this:
I've just checked the edge on my favorite gouge; it's perfect. I start to carve and it is like magic. Then the gouge slips from my hand and falls on my brick patio, and lands blade first. I check the edge and it is ruined. The immediate panic felt by me in my dreamstate is enough at this point to startle me awake.
This dream happens over and over in my sleep, and occasionally in my waking reality. This is the only tiki dream I ever have...

Teeva Free Buzzy Out!

Wait 'til the chisel falling edge first onto the concrete Really happens. You won't stop swearing for a week, then you will invest in one of those rubber mats that make standing on cement more comfortable and also prevent the chisel form hitting the floor edge first. BUT, Wait, what happens after you have the mat, the chisel falls Butt first and Bounces edge first onto the bare floor a foot away! More nithemare fuel!
Nice work.

Benzart: The rubber mat is a good idea, but I'm a miser and would never spend money on something like that. Instead, I'm just going to leave my woodchips all over the ground and never clean them up. That way, when the chisel falls, it will land on the soft bed of chips. The chisel has fallen the way I see it in my dreams a couple of times. Triumpth from tragedy: It taught me how to sharpen my tools effectively.
Hiltiki: I need to find a good home for most of those tikis. Four of them were supposed to go to a miniature golf course, but the whole project got cancelled about a week after I finished them. Originally, two were going to be my front yard fence posts, so some of them may be used for that project now.
Everyone: After I post, I usually notice that I forget to answer someone. Sorry to whomever it is this time, next time, and last time...

On the second day of carving, Buzzy said:"Let him have a body!" And he taketh his hand, and maketh the body...

and taketh a break...

and post.
And Buzzy said:"Let there be shade!" and he went back to work...

Buzzy Out!
