The pendant design turned out great, Cam.

Any word on how the mold came out? Mieko?

Can't wait to witness Lee's auctioneering skills.

First casting. Still working on the details.

Here's the question - should Mieko & me finish these, (as in coat, stain, paint) or should we give them all out and you Choppers can customize them induvidually? We have suggestions about color, etc., but you all are pretty creative...

These might look cool in a woodgrain, but how about burnished antique silver?

Yeah, but Billy, how do you really feel about doing these?

That's what I like about this guy, he's nothing if not direct! Dude, quit that government job and become a divorce lawyer!

I'm quitting next year and going to Culinary school, man.......screw civil service and law. YUCK!! This tiki carving thing will transfer over quite nicely into ice sculpting, too.

Ray, we have some VERY SPECIAL early work of yours that we may be auctioning off on Saturday. It's EXTREMELY EARLY Tiki-Ray stuff, possibly the first thing you ever carved!

As a matter of fact, it was produced so early in the Ray Career that it might be just a bit embarassing to the Ray of 2007, know what I mean?

If you don't want anyone to see this EARLY stuff, you can buy me drinks and sushi all Oasis weekend, but this ain't blackmail, right?

One of the most intriguing things about this event is the "no power tools" restriction.

I'm dying to see folks limited to just hand tools.


And Ray,

Cammo showed me those early pieces of yours last weekend. They're quite a hoot.

I think we were at the beach and I gave Cammo some wood for the fire and then he asked me to sign it . Maybe thats it .

No Ray, that ain't it.

Think back, way back. Farther. Back to when you were just a little misunderstood Tiki-Ray sitting in the corner of your garage. You wanted to make Tikis but didn't know how. Nobody was there to help you. And they laughed at you, you and your crazy ideas.

But you'd show them, all of them. You'd make a Tiki. All by yourself!

Before you had ever bought your first 3/4" Home Depot chisel, you MADE something. Something very interesting.

Remember now?

Now that everyone's had a great time Tiki-Bashing, here's the Carving Village pendant update:

Mieko and I spent Saturday working (well, actually, mostly Mieko, I sacked out on her couch and watched "Jack of All Trades" on DVD and slurped Diet Cherry Cokes) making the first pass of the pendants. We were going to make a bunch of different colors and textures, but these ones came out so snazzy we decided to do 'em all like this.

This picture doesn't do it justice, in reality it looks and feels exactly like antique ivory.



The girl's ones we'll maybe do in pink. And something that worked really well is bending the thing while it's still soft, to give it a slight convex surface. Then we just dunked it in ice water to firm the bend. See?...



So - I need a list of exactly what name you want at the bottom of the pendant. TC or real first name? And any assistants you're bringing, what's their name as well. PM me or post to this thread and we'll start making these happen.
