Who won the tikis by BOSKO and Tiki Diablo?
Do you have pictures of those tikis?
I almost flew there just to get a shot at those!
I've met them both and they are two great guys.
Would have love to carve with these masters!
Not to mention Crazy Al!

What, the rest of us are boring old jack-offs who turn out splinterey messes? Out of all of the tikis being chopped, sold, pimped, burned, stained, and changing hands this passed weekend(legally or illegally!), why are Bosko, Diablo and Crazy Al the only ones you care about? Broaden your horizons, man.......there were a LOT of AMAZING choppers at Oasis this year, so don't get stuck on Celeb carvers.

That being said, this whole thing would NEVER have happened if not for our good pals, Cammo, Mieko, Kate, Buzzy, Clysdale, Babalu, H20, Lee, Tikidav, Fly-Boy(who stood next to me the whole time, carving on freshly chopped legs!), 4WD, Eric,Birdman, Cheeky(for her lending me her sharp tools to cut myself with),, etc.....(if I've missed anyone, I blame the drugs). I was just some biker-punk-kid who was looking for a fresh scene and some fun new people, and Ya'll turned me into a fully addicted, tiki carving FREAK, and it is a most humbling pleasure to be a part of the group!!


I have a TON more thank-yous and pictures to post, but I have to go to El Centro to pick up the dog and kid. Will be posting tonight, so stay tuned!!!

I had a great time, even though I was only able to make it down for a few hours yesterday afternoon! Still great fun! Can't wait till the next chop chop!
Billy B was great fun to have as a carving neighbor!
And thanks to Buzzy for the log (and half round-- it'll make a cool mask!)!!!!!!!

The only question I have for everyone-- where'd you all get them sawhorses? I gotta get one of those!

Hey Josh- You can get them sawhorses at Home Depot or just about any hardware store. All ya do is nail a couple O' 2X4s to the sides and whamo! Instant Tiki carving station.

Super big thanks to Cammo and everyone else involved for putting the Carving Village deal together. Good times............good times.

Did not mean to dis anyone. Just wanted to see their stuff too.
I don't know of the carvers you talk of that's all.
But I will say that when someone comes up to your tiki
and says "That's a Bosko Or C al, Diablo" That's when you have made it.
When you have a style that is all your own, and that's hard to do with tiki.
It's kind of been done a lot.
Carve on.

"When you have a style that is all your own, and that's hard to do with tiki... bla bla bla etc etc."

Bro, you gotta go over to the Carving section of TC right now and look around. I mean, really dude. 4WDtiki has the most distinctive and recognizable style going. His cube-y Maois are REALLY getting popular.

And most people at Oasis were climbing over each other, paying pro carver Buzzy outlandish prices for the classic Bay Park Buzzy signed photos. That guy's fame is legendary. I think his photos sold out in like 27 minutes.

And Billy Bobaloo sold every Tiki he made at Oasis; some were international sales! Two were sold before he finished them!

Laytah.

It seemed like there were quite a few carvers that were swamped at their booths this year, and didn't get to carve, including the Buzz Master...I did get to meet Danny on Sunday though. If your out there Danny...I really dug your mugs man! Brought one that I'm drinking out of right now. Look forward to carving with you some day too. Huge thanks to both Diablo and Bosco for donating those pieces to the Sunday auction for the good of carving. Mad props!

Skip.........you're just making it worse. Please go play somewhere else. The sad thing here is that you don't even think you've insulted anyone.

The sad thing is that you and many more beginners have delusions of grandeur. Not saying I can do better (I don't carve), or that you should stop carving, but for you to think that you're even close to the level of the artists you mentioned is absurd.
And I don't mean the technical skill of carving - I mean the creative style. I don't say this to offend, I say this to give you a little reality check. A little humility goes a long way.

Thanks Mieko for letting me use your chisels on Friday. I was hoping to get the group log a good head start but alas it was not an idea that was going to catch on.

maybe another time.

Bummed I was trapped in a vending booth on the big carving day... I should have carved..

Thanks Cammo for going to so much trouble making those pendants they really turned out nice

Thanks Buzzy for transporting and stripping those logs... I know its a lot of work....

No, the sad thing is watching a bunch of grown men piss themselves over carvers like a bunch of little girls at an NSync concert. Saying that one carver is better than the other is like saying that grape is better than strawberry........it's all opinion. You wanna be a little carver groupie, you go ahead.
