Another day, another sunset...


I saw this HIP at the swap meet today. It had a similar groin affliction as the Dirk Diggler Bondage Tiki. I bought it for that reason alone


Speaking of tiki parts that resemble genitalia:


Benzart: Hey, thanks for the link for the wimp wrap. I notice that it comes in several colors. One will surely match my carving skirt for sure!!! The only part about my hook knife lessons that I recall anymore is the part where I say, "You weren't supposed to see that", like all my carving dandruff and other mistakes. as long as I'm not cut and bleeding, I'm doing better than I expected at this point...Practice, practice, practice




Tikiduddy: It will never hurt to sharpen your tools. Two of the only things about the hook that i now know: #1 If I were handed a hookknife and a piece of wood and told to get to it without instruction, I would never be able to figure it out. Benzart showed me a good technique and how to approach the medium, and without his guidance, I would have lost a finger or two trying to discover it on my own. #2 Might be the tool itself. I bought a crappy hook knife kit and there would be no way I could do this with the blades that came with it. Benzart recommends the 10b detail carving blades available at Warren Cutlery, along with the wood handle blade holder. I think the setup with three blades was about $13.
Benzart: Did I miss anything?

Well Hell, Now you know it ALL, Except to get the Nice Thin blades, you have to go into the industrial knife section at Warren and order part 9B where you get 3 choices, Hard, Medium and Limber(we're talking about knife blades here kidz) and you want the 9B Limber, They are the Thin, Flexible blades that cut soi sweetly. Unfortunately you have to buy 144 of them for 92$ Do the math, it's way better than 3 blades for $3.28. 144 at that pice would be $154.00, so do the math, its a good deal.

Other than that you Know it all and now all you have to do is get that experience under your belt and you will truely be a Hook Master, Yeaaayy! Once you go through the course and don't cut off a finger, then you start to develop your own style to get thions one and that is where you are today. Keep up the good work.
I will split some blades with someone?

Now you see it...

...now you don't!


Just a couple more marks to go

I was just carrying this outside to take a picture, and I noticed a sun spot through the arm. It was then I decided to carve out the space, since I was so close

I need to clean a lot of it up, and more importantly, improve my technique so I do not have so much to clean up and/or fix.

I like the way the arms came out. I've always felt like carving arms were my one of my major weakness. One finger is too skinny though. I think he lost it in a hook knife accident.


I actually worked on sanding a large piece today. It was so big I got exhausted after only twenty minutes. More later...

Full of Burrito Buzzy Out!

I had just finished hand staining this when I looked at the can of stain and thought, "Hey, I could just dunk this in there..."
Next time.

This time:






Kirby: The hook definitely has its advantages. I'm looking into having one attached as an extension to my arm, but only about 9" long. Kind of like "Buzzy HooknifeHands." It's not as bad as those first couple of hours at okix2 were.

Finished this guy last night:


That spot on the photo is rain. Yes, RAIN!

In San Diego, we call this bad weather. Accidents on the freeway and people call in sick to work because of the elements. My backyard is flooded from all the rain. See this haikai, we have bad weather too. It's about 19 C, so I can still wear shorts and a tshirt all day, but look at how wet everything is...

And I was planning on carving outside all day...
Where did I leave my hookknife?

Benzart: "Grasshopper" I can hang with, but if try to hit me with that stick one more time, your current physical afflictions will seem like the "good old days". And as for the grass, if I leave it long enough, won't some sort of Florid plague bug eat it all, or will it catch on "fire" and smolder away...You're old now anyway, shouldn't you get rid of that grass and put in acres of landscaping rocks? Be tiki, go lava...Look out for Paipo rummaging through your yard for raw materials, he'll beat you to all the good stuff

Speaking of Paipo, Hey, check out what my friend bought for me this weekend:



Hangin' in the Monsoon Buzzy Out!

Nice scores Buzzy - tikis are good but the hula girl penholder is sweeet. Gotta love faux woodgrain finishes! You must be getting quite a collection of these together now?

I'm diggin the little basswood guy. It seems you like the hook knofe - here's a suggestion - Once you get the big cuts done with the Hook switch over to a straight blade for smoothing and detail. I have found that the hooked blade can stray from where I want it to go on the small cuts. Also try using a lighter stain on that Basswood - it reacts really nice with the grain and gives a cool variation of tones.

Yes Grasshopper, I am old and my yard is filled with landscape rocks and mulch so that the grass has Nowhere to live, Sherry doesn't have to cut it that way. When you come down, bring the Biggest Stick you can handle, you will need it for the big carving we'll do to it.. Don't pay no attention to that AS guy, stick to the hook, you don't need no straight blades messin up your work.
Was that really rain there and it made your sawdust move around into little swirs? Cool. Glad to see you doing so well with the hook but really AS is right, there are times when it pays to go straight., But you know that

Last night's post storm sunset:


Aloha:Thanks for the tips. Much appreciated. Got a link to an example of the blades you use? Also, that stain was a new one i was trying, so I wanted to test it on a piece that I would look at in a few months and say, " I'm so much better than I was` when I carved that piece. Look at this ugly thing. Glad I kept practicing." So I figured I'd test it on my first "messy" hookknife piece. Kind of like a double negative makes a positive? Anyway, I do not like the stain, and am glad I didn't use it on a better piece. I was thinking of doing my next one with just clear sealer.


Benzart: Today I can handle this stick:



To work I go...

Back To Big Buzzy Out
