More nice stuff BayBuzzy, I really love the Pointy head dude. That grain is good as the rest and you tickled the finish a bit somehow, the end result is very good. ditto what Hiltiki said about your carvings getting better all but the "Fantastic" part Maybe in another20 days or 100 carvings which ever comes first, but you are on the Fast track for sure. However your sunsets, now They are getting FanTasTIC.
Break's Over, back to play for ya'

I don't know Benz, I thought it was fantastic considering not much background in art and only a year and a half or less into carving....

It just keeps looking the same day after day...

My sunset art is in a rut.

If I don't get some clouds or something soon, I'm bound to lose some of my sunset fans.

It's like a roller coaster, this ride.

Hiltiki: It's a little trash talkin' left over from some PM stuff earlier, Benz and me...
It's motivation: He tries to piss me off, knowing I'll labor long and hard into the night trying to up my level of work to finally shut him up. In apparently, 100 carvings or so...(which is a lower number than I'm personally projecting, so I'm actually complemented by this)

Benz: Thanks buddy! You made my day. Only 100 more to go...
I "played" with that finish a bit on that one. I kind of glossed over a couple steps earlier, but i'll elaborate now a little more, since I'm out of pretty pictures for the day. First thing I did was stain it with sedona red for about half the recommended time, and wiped it off by hand, leaving the lighter grains redder than with just a reduced red mahogany stain. It didn't look as good on the darker grains though, so I tried to bring them up with a reduced red mahog, which I once again wiped off the lighter grains immediately with a cloth. I then touched up the the darker grains as needed with a brush and more stain 4-5 times, dabbing off the excess to keep the lighter grains reddish. The result turned out pretty good for just winging it like I did. I'll probably reverse the stains' order next time, and try a clear, instead of an amber tinted shellac, just to see what if. As for getting back to play, I sold two tikis today, unexpectedly. Thinking about that flexcut recip motor carving thingymajiggy. Maybe one for each hand. Same game, new toys...

Tikigap: I need to start doing some trick photography if this cloud drought continues...

Mother Nature:I continually strive for excellence, in all aspects of my art! Bring me some some clouds, please !!!(But rain only at night)

Dear LA: Can you guys give your cars a couple extra revs of the engine before you shut your cars down? I need some smog down here for good sunsets.


Buzzy Out!

I was so happy to see the mailman at my door with a box in his hand, I almost kissed him on the mouth.



It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

When the mailman grabbed my face and pushed me away, I pointed to the porch ceiling and said, "Oh, the mistletoe must have fallen down."
Then I grabbed the box out of his hand and got back on with my life.

Boxopening Buzzy Out!

Wooooo, so pretty!!
If you're coming on the 20th, I'd love to see them in action - by then you'll know which ones are your favorites so I can think about some new tools.

Mieko: I started looking into these after I checked out your little set at the last chopchop. It made sense to use these to complement the hookknife, so I went big and bought the starter set. It has 16 interchangeable gouges that can be used in an included palm and mallet handle. They will also fit in the RPC setup, which I will probably have soon. Also on the backorder is the Mini and micro palm tool sets. All of which were graciously discounted for my by Dennis at cybercarving.com.

Stiki: I think the only thing I'm in excess of is the SlipStrop. Sure, my old one, along with the half used polishing compound, is all yours! Happy birthday Buddy!

Today's b&b:
My hypothesis: It is actually cheaper to take mass produced products and alter them into custom products, than it is to manufacture custom products from scratch.

The project:
I need to test the making of two custom signs for a pole, to be placed in front of a beach rental shop, and make them cheaply as possible.

To test my hypothesis:
Two new signs, fresh off the boat


Since these are new to the market, I'm sorry that I cannot state the actual wholesale unit cost for these. It is cheaper than lumber, though. I promise. The shape also saves a lot of time on my end, because I don't have the new yankee workshop, yet.

But I do have a ryobi planer. I used it to plane off the the face of the sign,to put a new set of hand carved letters on

I made a stencil for the letters I needed from other signs


Then I drew out the outline of the letters


Never doing this before, I tried the first letter. I traced the outline with the hookknife and then used a mallet gouge as a palm gouge and took down the material around the letters. I then sanded it quickly with the dremel to see if this process would work for the whole sign

Good enough.

I then traced the rest of the letters with the hookknife, and prepared to do the rest the same way.

Then, Ding Dong! The mailman came. New tools!

I put them to use immediately and finished the rest of the rough out in about ten minutes

Damn, these palm tools rock!

Now I'll go and sand it.
Let me get the sunset real quick

Buzzy Out


damn speling!
