Cheekygirl -

Thanks for your generous offer regarding your chisels...

I have a few smallish logs stored in my garage that should be dry by January. I'll give them to anyone who is genuinely interested in carving a tiki from them. I may have a few chunks of Douglas Fir left-over from my first attempts at carving too.

Its coming together!!

Who else is in for a day at G's?

Are you working on anything special?

I'll need to see as it gets closer, but I'd love to go. I've been dying to get into carving, but having never done it before, not sure where to start. Would be great to chat to some carvers. At the very least I'll bring my art book along and do some sketching.

The neighbors cut down one of those "HUGE" Dr Seuss palm trees and, like an idiot, I said "Can I have it?"
so now I've got a big palm tree lying in my front yard and figure it's a good time to learn how to carve it.

So no, not working on anything special... well, maybe a hernia when I try to move the thing.

I will be there.
All the logs I have are too heavy to move so I may have to work on something small.
Maybe an extra tiny log someone could spare?

I will bring my chisels as well.

Are power tools welcome or needed?

I am very excited about Art/Chops coming to this area.

TikiGeeki - Hope you can make it out to the Valley on the 23rd. I'm unsure how many carvers will be present (as of today) but we'll get you started regardless. There will be plenty of painting and sketching going on so yeah, bring your sketchbook

hiltiki - Great to see you will make it! What project(s) will you be working on?

geedavee - Welcome aboard too! Power tools are welcome, of course - but you will have to bring your own along with a portable workbench or sawhorses. Personally I paint so my tool selection is almost non-existent. I do own a few chisels and mallet. Electrical hook-up is no problem, as there is a double outlet available in the backyard. I'll run a couple orange grounded extension cords with grounded power strips.

There is direct access from the driveway into the backyard. Of course if it should happen to rain on the 23rd I will make room in the garage for the carvers.

Thanks for the response so far. Without your support...well you know! More info to come later. G

Do you have a log to spare? If so, count me in. Sounds like fun!

PolynesianPop - It'll be awesome to see you!

So... let me put the call out to TC Ohana:

Can somebody can bring a couple extra log pieces, palm or otherwise to the art jam/CHOP January 23rd-

Please do!! You will be helping our homegrown art effort(s) enormously and your generous act will be returned two-fold - a gesture of friendship

There is a tree nursery close to my house in Sylmar. I'll stop by after work this week to see if they can spare some log pieces for the chop effort.

Thanks! Greg

Murph...

I have a white Globe light that needs to become a fish float lamp.

Perhaps you can school me on this, and it will be my project for the day ?

Lamp building talk -

I LOVE IT!!

I'll be finishing one and shit - I guess I'll be starting another. I use whatever the thrift shops can offer up for the basis of a lamp (baskets, old non-polypop swag lights, bamboo items etc)then add polypop fabric, bamboo, rope etc to fill out the design. A little creative impulse and some elbow grease, you can really create something nice that's unique.

There's never a shortage of rough material available to create cool things with

I'm not using my horse, so I'll bring if someone needs it. Only caveat, I'll load it in my Element, but if you wanna use it, ya gotta unload it (Back Issues lately)
