Another excellent Chop today.

I actually took a moment to take some pictures.

4WDTiki wuvs his 'ittle puppy.


Bowana rasping away.


Zaya, Cindy and Mieko gathered around the wood burner.


Bill's granddaughter, Victoria, working on her tiki.


Billy the Crud carves while H2OTiki supervises.


Cannibal Sam and his Pops carving. (Pops really does have the moves.)


I really love when grown men go all silly over their pets.


Thanks again to Bill and Lennie for hosting another wonderful Chop.

Kate brought Tiki Modern along and we were all looking at it and marvelling at how easy it is now to make your own genuine original Witco piece. Just copy the leetle drawings, but put in an extra ear or bigger eyes and BINGO it's your own creation!

Then we flipped the page and there it was - full, step-by-step instructions for how to make your own fountain. We all freaked.

Maybe we should have a Witco Fountain Contest, we all have 3 hours to make our own and have prizes for;

Most Original
Least Original
Best Spewing of Water
Looks Least like an Islander Style
etc.

Buzzy could carve a trophy, or we could just ransack his trash and find something really cool to spraypaint gold for the prize.

What a great chop! Here's my pics.

Dave plans his next precision cut.


Cannibal Alex ain't no beginner!


Billy cuts up a chunk.


Kate stopped carving for 3.4 seconds.


The Mieko family work as a team.


Brian studies Kate's form.


Dave mentors Cindy.


Cam adds detail to "The Tongue".



My granddaughter Victoria shows she's a chip off the old block.


Then gets to stain her work.


Here's what I finished up.

Fackin' groovin' Clyde!! Looks great, man. I've used that gunstock stain on two pices now and I love it, but I've got to be careful not to use it on too many pieces. Don't want to wear out a good thing and like you said "use sparingly". I stained that Moai(Mojai) with it and it looks great.


Congrats on another great, original piece, brudda!

Thanks for another great Chop-Chop everybody. Great pictures too. Good thing my jungle hat is hiding my dork glasses.

The Guardian looks fab, Clysdale.

I like Bowana's glasses. What's wrong with nerdy? Isn't it the opposite of big, clumsy and stupid?

Here's Cary Grant's sunglasses, for example;

I'd be down for this, Cam , but three hours is way too long unless you count plumbing in the pump and making the base-box.......wait......three hours to plagiarize, chainsaw, grind/sand, burn, wire-brush, stain, and plumb? Yeah, that would be a mad rush of bloody flying fingers, burnt flesh, and foul language. Sounds fun!!


Funny, I always thought that Witco stuff came from Escondido.(hehehehe!)

"three hours to plagiarize, chainsaw, grind/sand, burn, wire-brush, stain, and plumb?"

Exactly. Three hours is all it should take. Heck, lets just do a Witco chop in general; three hours to make anything you want, or as many as you want; you could even do a production line of like 12 Witco llamas. Then we all burn, wire brush 'em and slap some poly on at the same time out of a big gallon can. How hard can it be?

We could even get a Witco catalogue (I know where we can get one, no kidding) and blow up the examples to full size at Kinko's, and transfer them right onto the wood first! Has that ever been done?!
