Josh baby,

YOU'RE IN!

Just come to the Oasis, head over to the Carving Village, and ask for Billy Bee. He'll set you up. We may (you'll have to check with Buzzy) have both logs for cheap (if you want one all to yourself) and some test chisels for you to use. Don't worry, I'm not kidding, come on down, everybody is invited, everybody's more than welcome.

I think we'll have a demo log that anybody can try carving on, and one for old hand pro's to carve a section of...


Awesome! I've got some crappy chisels of my own, so I'll bring those, but I'll be happy to try out a demo chisel or two. It never hurts to know what you're missing.
Some stuff came up that weekend so I think I'm only going to be able to get down for Sunday though. Still, a whole Sunday carving beats a whole weekend of sitting around on my butt!
Good times! I'll bring the ice chest and some rum!

Everybody's been PMing me asking some really strange questions about the Chop, so here are the basic facts:

We'll be there Friday to Sunday, 10:00-5:00 every day at the Oasis.

There will be 25 carvers involved, many are regulars from our monthly Tiki Chops.

Anybody, and I mean anybody, who wants to try Tiki carving should come out and give it a go. We'll have demo logs set up to try carving on, as well as cheap palm logs you can buy, carve, and take home. We'll help you, and show ya the ropes.

Only the signed-on carvers get a Carving Village pendant; 33 now, including volunteers & assistants. We'll auction off some extra pendants, and I'll paint your name on them.

We'll have a Tiki Auction of really good stuff at 3:45 on Saturday (right after the Bum's talk) and 2:00 on Sunday (after Otto's talk). TCers should hit the Saturday one, there will be some specials going that day.

We'll also have stain and cans of Poly and Spar there to play with.

Carvers will be doing demos, but times are impossible to pin down, it's a very loose thing. We'll post times on the big board in the lobby if possible. We've generally decided to just chop Tikis all weekend, the whole thing is one big demo.

All the carvers will be using hand tools only, no power.

All the carvers will be coming and going constantly, checking out Oasis events too, so it'll be different every time you stop by.

And don't forget to have a fire extinguisher on-hand should a drunken Bamboo Ben show up.

You think that'll deter him? You don't know Bamboo Ben very well, do you?

Otto, is this the Tiki Oasis mug, or a different Munktiki mug?

He likes fire WAY too much. Keep him away from the stains and glazes!

I guess now would be a good time to bring up the logs for the Tiki Oasis Carving Village

Here are a few of the logs we cleaned and hauled this weekend that are now waiting to be turned into tikis real soon:


All these will be completely stripped and chisel ready for the event. There are also a few more I still need to defrond that you cannot see in this picture.


We will provide the following (logwise) at the Tiki Oasis Carving Village:
#1. Free carving logs to all carvers who have attended a chop event in the past.
#2. A couple large open group logs set up for anyone to carve on at the event.
#3. Several nominally priced cleaned logs for guests to purchase for their own carving needs, for use either at the event or for later in their carving careers.

This weekend, I'm planning on getting as much as cleaning and sizing of these logs done as possible. If you have a preference for the size of your log, let me know and we'll try to get it to your specifications. Otherwise, I'm just bringing a whole mess of whole and half logs and you all can pick out the one that calls you.

So, it would be helpful if anyone who needs a log for the event could let me know what size you think you might want, or any other special log order requests at this time.

Thank you very much,
Buzzy's Log House
