Well, it looks like everyone can make it on the 2nd, so let's go ahead and move it. I'm going to try to get my dad's truck and get some logs from Buzzy so he won't have to bring them all. It looks like we'll need at least 5 logs, and I wouldn't mind having extras at my house. Maybe we can have Buzzy bring his planer to strip them so we can see how cool it is.

Hey Cammo, you were asking about where to get flexcut tools, it looks like there are a few places that have discounts if you just search for flexcut, but I don't have experience with any of them.

I did get an email coupon from Rockler, $15 off $50 purchase for this weekend. I might be able to forward it if you didn't get it. It seems like their email list is worth signing up for.

I bought all my flexcut stuff at
http://www.cybercarving.com/
Dennis, the owner, will order any individual tools for you also. Discounts run about 15-25% off list prices, and` there are occasional sales. I picked up the Sculptor's Mallet set for $94, postage included, a couple months back. He also gives you a better deal when he becomes familiar with you.
Cammo, if you need one, I have a complete flexcut catalogue you could check out.

I AM IN! I WILL NEED A LOG. If it gets dicey I can come/go up and get logs. I think I could get five three footers in the cherokee.

Or I could just pick up five for myself. :0

Cripes! I think I'll still have holiday squatters then. I've got to double check...

HodadHankster - bring the Squatters! Maybe you can slip away and leave them at Mieko's!

Thanks for the Flexcut tips - I'm getting a Sculptors Set and a simple 1" flat chisel, my fave. Do ya think Flexcut is wondering why everyone in California is suddenly ordering Sculptor Sets???

I'll be bringing food, by the by, at least;

- Crab Camaroon Won Tons
- San Francisco 1961 Chinatown Egg Rolls
- Kahlua Pork, Ono Style

And HodadHank's favorite . . .

- Toasted Coconut Chocolate Cheesecake

And I'm also making special Scorpion Bowls for the occasion, unfortunately they'll all say Cool Whip on the side.

I just saw this post!!!! I've missed the last 2 carving get togethers. I'm blowing off two parties on the 2nd for this!

I have a log, but since I'm no expert, I wouldn't mind ordering one up from Buzzy, just in case mine is not up to par.

I'm so in, I'm already there!

Hey folks,

I need to off-load some AAC blocks, so I'll be bringing several to pass around.

I'll also be bringing some island style macaroni-potato salad, hemp beer, and of course my APE CD. Way to start the holidays!

I thought Aaron "First in the Phone Book" was kidding. He ain't.

Cool deal, Aaron. I was reading your threads on AAC and would very much like to get my hands on a piece. Hopefully I've got a log from Buzzy with my name on it, but I wouldn't want to be a hog and run off with a hunk O' AAC too. (unless there's an extra)

Who sells it in the San Diego area? Maybe somewhere in your posts has the answer, but there are so many posts about it I was getting dizzy. Thanks.

Don't worry Cammo, it'll get you no more buzzed than chewing on rope (while drinking beer).

Tikidav, I'll bring a bunch of blocks for everyone to take home. It's very messy carving AAC, and we won't want to polute Mieko's yard with all that AAC dust. On your question: You won't find AAC available west of Casa Grande, Arizona.

10" Mallet tools from flexcut




Also:
We were discussing going and getting logs soon, possibly caravan style. They are in Vista, and we could meet off the 78 at the Sycamore exit, if that would be easier for everyone who wants logS(emphasis on plural), let's make a time and day.
we get to choose from
pile #1: approx 40 logs, 7-10 months of drying time

Pile #2: approx 290 logs, 1 month drying time


I'll sit back and let you guys sort it all out. Let me know when you all want to go.
Buzzy
