Stained the quick Moai just now:



I'm getting tired of this type of grain. It all looks the same.


-Aloha Buzzy! Your Tikis are getting better each time Have you ever used a propane torch to add depth to the grain? The heat causes the softer wood to sink, while the harder grain remains... (Witco style) Turn your torch on as high as possible and get as close as possible and move as slowly as possible until you have glowing embers emitting from the smoldering stump... Just kidding, just practice with the distance and speed until you have the depth and color desired...

Aloha, Freddie

I sliced a big chunk off my knuckle last night. It happened while carving, but I hesitate to call it a carving accident. I was putting a chiselaway, and it deflected off a box and scraped a chunk off my left knuckle. It didn't bleed for about 20 seconds...It's not deep, it just covers a large area. Damn chisels are sharp.

Anyway, it was really nothing, so I got back to carving details on the chopchop 2 tiki:


Shadows are not showing in this light that well

Hola Freddie: Welcome to my thread! This is where I spend all my time, when I'm not coveting your lava collection over on the ccj's thread, that is. You got me experimenting out in the garage last night:

I think the tight parts of the grain may be too small on this piece

This was scrap wood, so I didn't remove the planer marks before I burned it

I think I need to do two things: Revise my burning technique and get larger grained wood.
I like those shell inlays on that piece. That grain seems to make a simple carving detailed, if that makes sense. Thanks for the other reference photo, too. Take care man and thanks again for the advice.

Zaya, GROG, Hiltiki, and Buzzy's MOM: It looks like we have enough people interested in that piece now, that we can have a mini fight tournament for it. How about holding it at the Tonga Hut? (Calling out the winner=My mom is calling out the winner as in calling out the winner to FIGHT. Like after Brandon Vera won his first UFC fight, he called out chuck liddell, to fight. He didn't say "chuck, chuck, chuck." He said, " I want to fight Chuck Liddell." Calling out means you are publically stating who you will fight )

I ate too much pizza...
Buffett Buzzy Out!

The Tonga Hut is perfect, and I think it should be just like old school UFC when there were NO RULES except for one, no eye gouging. Everything else was legal. What do you say about that?

I call out GROG!

I'm off to training, Zaya out!

I know, I want to put him in a stroller and cruise the mall...

Sunset(to catch myself up):


Sunny day today, working on this dude:


Been working on a big little guy made from the carrotwood
Here are two chunks I took off the log:


It dries super duper hard. Slow work. I tried a test stain piece and it isn't too exciting. It looks similar to a basswood, but is way harder to work with.

So far, i've used a v tool palm gouge and a straight "hookknife" that came in the starters kit. It works just a little better than the hooked knife that I'm used to, but only for this piece, for some reason.

Anyway, it's lunch time, and I'm burning daylight...

Buzzy Out!

Hey Buzzy,

I'm enjoying your processes as usual. I go back over your old posts quite a bit; it's amazing how dedicated you are to this art form...the work certainly shows it.

I really dig seeing those sunsets too...keep-um coming.

That is Really a Cool little full body tiki and Super well proportioned. We have a carrot wood tree out here that is considered an invasive species. I had 2 in my back yard and it took forever to get them eliminated, kept sproowting up all around the stump. The wood was Darker and redder and very unstable and soft. Yours looks good.
That sundown you quoted is really Alien looking, Really strange and beautiful..
Keep up the great work BuzzMaster.
