Wowzers. Killer.

Re: temperature, I have to say it DID drop below 70. Nights are in the upper 50s-60s now. Brrrrrrr!

Okay, everyone stop sharpening tools and pointing them at me when I write this.

Dan got cold last night and he managed to find the Frog Island T-shirt you gave him. He said it felt so good to sleep in it, soft and warm. Thank you CY.

Excellent work as always, Wendy

Thanks H10, Will you are officially invited to my place for a game of billiards, TA I think most of us envy the mild temps that you, pjc, and Wendy and Dan enjoy! In the midst of chaos this Christmas vacation I managed to finish "Brunswick", "Ward", and "Restless Natives" A 115 ft. fir that was going to fall on my work space/garage was removed along with a couple beautiful cedars has left me with more lumber than I will ever use.



Also started this bass wood piece. My plan is for him to hang from a frame.


I also removed wood from the top section of this small walnut piece.

This originally was cute in the way it grew crooked but thankfully Rich's Tree Service saved my garage and showed me what a chain saw is actually used for.


This is a section of the fir that is about 12 ft long and 30 inches in diameter.

They started with one of those trick little Stihl 150's and finished with a 36" bazooka.

You know you have to hang a tiki or light from this limb right?

Polished & with impeccable detail,
your completed pieces are knock outs.

That monster log is gonna take some thought.

Outstanding work as usual Cy. Always a cut above the majority of us. Looks like some chainsaw work in your future and I'm looking forward to it.

I am seeing your most excellent idea Skip, mine was to nail wooden orange crate planks to the backside of the tree so I could climb and sit pondering the meaning of life while my legs dangle off the end. My family can see me from the house so flashing the high sign should have them tying a beer to a rope that I could then haul up. Will, the props of carvers that I admire is my very best inspiration! Happy to know you are still out there amate, I have been wondering where you been. My chain saw is already screaming to cut into that beautiful, fresh wood... patience is a hell of a difficult virtue. Here is a new small piece of poplar. Skip I need something small hanging from the top guy.

WOW, Incredible carving wood stored and I'm sure you have big Tiki plans for every piece. Love the last Poplar piece, Incredible design and detail. I should visit more often!

"mine was to nail wooden orange crate planks to the backside of the tree so I could climb and sit"

That is a good one too.
You could tiki it up and have a seat.
Kinda like a tiki life guard chair.

Will work on some smalls for you, do you need it to light or not?

Thanks mucho Benz! Skip I would love for it to light but am afraid it needs to be too small for that. About 2-3 inch diameter.

Ok Cy, Love working with you.
Here are a few that I'm not done with but gives you an idea.
In the end they will be hangers, Bud not included.
The first one is too big I know, but it gives you an idea of how the second one
would be finished.
Plus can always tie small floats with no lights.
Have some things I found that I think you can work with will send a box of stuff.

Should be done with the first two lights by July. Ha!

Winter Sucks!
Real winter, not that fake California winter.

Those two are great for projects I have in the works, let me know when they are done! With the poplar piece I was looking for just a small tied float, I will email you the size of it and see if you have anything small enough. Thanks Skip.

Wow tikiskip and CY working together, now that's fun. Congratulations on saving the garage and having enough wood for a lifetime of projects. It will be super fun to watch you work. We sure enjoyed visiting you and frog island. You live in beauty.

Dan's loving the T-shirt so much that I got mine out and now I'm wearing it too. Softest T-shirt ever made and so warm with the long sleeves.

Miss you, Wendy

Lighting makes my stuff look more alive Wendy and who's better than Skip? Very happy you like the shirts and are advertising for me.
I did a bit this week on "Punchy's Brother", a noble log.

I had a forty year old untreated telephone pole that held an outdoor light on my property that finally rotted out and fell, so I used the best of it to start this water spouting tiki.

He will be spitting into the head of a smaller one that will leaking into yet another. Have not figured out how I will do that yet but that's just a minor detail.

The top portion of this walnut branch is taking way too much time.

Still a lot to do.

"Herb and Al" is being made from poplar. This is the one that I would like a float hanging from the top figure, but having trouble finding a small enough glass ball.
