These look pretty darn sweet there Cammo - Meiko! Nice color.

Uhhhhh - I want an assistant.....or, maybe I'll just be an assistant? Buzzy - you need a water boy - chisel cleaner brother?

Those pendants look great, sweet job ! TO7 is my next event and Im picking up some banter and want to be prepared . There seem to be some rules for this project that I havent seen yet . Is there a list that we all should see ? I see that there is a no power tools clause which is fine and now Im guessing there can be an assistant to help . Is that like a golf caddie ??? lol. What do they do because I am just curious ? Seriously though , is there any other event rules I should prepare for ?

Ray, you'll need:

- 1 zebra skin, fully tanned
- 1 #7 golf club
- 3 chocolate cupcakes
- 1 map of Phoenix, AZ
- 16 matched black pearls
- a piece of paper with your foot traced onto it
- a good attitude
- a bad shirt

NOTE: Only Ray has to bring this stuff.

Any questions?

Tiki Carving Village Bulletin #2

A couple of news items for everybody –

There’s a new carving/woodworking store in San Diego, run by Bill Kohr. It’s at 4848 Ronson Court Suite L, in Kearny Mesa, and it’s website is

http://www.craftsmanstudio.com/

Now you gotta see this place. He doesn’t know anything about Tiki Carving, but is kind of intrigued by our group and probably thinks we’re all crazy. Here’s the scoop, though – he carries TWO CHERRIES CHISELS! They’re made in Germany, and sort of make Flexcut look shabby.

He also carries DVDs on how to sharpen chisels. This guy knows everything about sharpening chisels.

And there’s a meeting of the San Diego Fine Woodworking Association this Thursday at the Al Bahr temple in Kearny Mesa. We’re all invited:

http://www.sdfwa.org/nextmeeting.htm

Buzzy says he thinks these are “all old guys who carve ducks”, and he’s probably not too far off. They also carve stuff like this, though –

http://www.sdfwa.org/diw/2007/photogallery.htm

so they seem to know more about stain, carving, and obscure wood types than the average Joe Schmoe. I’d love to meet these dudes, their little get together is at 7:00.

Love the way the pendant turned out, Cam and Mieko. I'd like mine in the stain you showed though please. Pink would clash with my carving outfits.

In all my wacky Girl Power fervor, I told Cammo, as not to interfere with the integrity of the event, that I would spend the whole weekend carving in go-go boots. Just wanted to prove the point that women can do anything men can do, and yes, we can do it in heels.

Only girls??

Does this mean Cammo can't wear his Go-Go boots?

If Cammo wears go-go boots, It will be a totally different type of chop!

I have some things I'm working on right now and I was wondering if anyone wanted to get together for a mini-chop before the big dog. Any ideas?

Cammo will have to elevate his carving bench though . When he wears boots , he goes all out . Did you see Elton John in his Captain Fantastic outfit ? He loves to carve in 12 inch heels .Cammo has no shame !

Tiki-Ray, I wouldn't start anything. Anybody capable of carving something and then SPRAY PAINTING IT GREEN AND ORANGE shouldn't throw rocks at the other guy's house.

Yes, GREEN and ORANGE! Does that trigger any memories now, bud? Huh?

And Kate carving in transparent Go-Go boots and a day-glo bikini is exactly why we did this chop in the first place. Anybody who even notices what I'm wearing on my feet with her around needs a checkup from the neckup, y'know?

Billy B - Ready, Steady, OFF WE GO!!!!!!!!!!!

Green and Orange ?????????? That must be a forgery or maybe something I used on the set for when the Brady Bunch went to Hawaii . Remember when Alice threw out her back , or Greg wiped out in the surf , or even the tarantula that got into the girls hotel room ? It all happened because of that "Taboo" necklace Vincent Price wanted . It got so bad that he tied Greg, Peter and Bobby to 3 tikis in the hidden cave and was going to...
Did I just write all that ? I think I spent too much time watching TV as a child . Anyway , tell Tiki Kate that we want her to wear the Nancy Sinatra wig too .
" These boots were made for chopping ..."

Somebody has to bring a DVD of those Brady Bunch episodes for the Oasis. It would be creepy and funny at the same time. We could all have a drink anytime a Tiki appears onscreen!

"In all my wacky Girl Power fervor, I told Cammo, ... that I would spend the whole weekend carving in go-go boots. Just wanted to prove the point that women can do anything men can do, and yes, we can do it in heels."

Kate, if you can carve in transparent Go-Go boots, a pylon-orange bikini, and a silver blonde page-boy wig, now THAT would really prove something.

Yeah, it'd prove she was capable of getting wood chips and splinters in her nether-regions!!

Sorry All. The boots aren't transparent. I've got two pairs though, so I'll be color coordinated. I think it's all a lame ploy to avert people's attention away from the fact that I still don't carve very well.

Don't carve very well? This is the same Kate I've been chopping with for a month now? You carve just fine......at least you don't go off, butchering beautiful logs with chainsaws.
