IT'S BUZZY!!!!!"

Like little girls? You may have something there.

Babalu Just took a look at your stuff and it's looking good.
Porps to you man! Awesome.



Uh.......Buzzy is a friend of mine, ignoramus. Swing and a miss. I'll trade insults with you all day, bozo.......I'm home from work, injured from a motorcycle accident, and I just got a new script of painkillers.......wanna stop now, or should we keep going? I'd like to just post pics, but if I have to spend my time on you, I will.

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.


We will be working on it - I love what you started, so I made sure Bill took it home and we can carve on it for the next few chops. Maybe we can auction it off next year at Oasis!
And you can borrow my chisels anytime!

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


Did you get yours?? We didn't have one ahead of time cause we didn't know you were gonna carve, but I wanted to make sure you got one.

"I'd like to just post pics, but if I have to spend my time on you, I will"

That's what started this whole thing.
I asked about pictures of the stuff Bosko and Tiki Diablo
donated to the raffle.
Then someone went coo coo and started to sling insults around.

So does anyone have any pics of the master tiki carvers
Bosko, Crazy Al, Or Tiki Diablo?
Their dreamy.

Monkey the Man gets one, we have like 2 left I think. I actually LOST T-Bird's ( It's probably in the pool) so he'll get set up too.

He's the Fisheye Fotos in no order at all -

Our guardian Tiki-


Do you think some people look like the Tikis they carve?


The happy Cannibal -


The creative Process -


Dav finds shade-


Break time -


This is the look Kate gives vendors when she wants a deal. It usually works-


Cheeky goes pro -


Babs taps one out -


HEY! What are you DOING?!


This guy IS Oasis.


Jimbo, a very happy camper.


And these guys were all our faves, they had a great attitude, serenaded us with uke and bongoes, and then proceeded to rip logs apart all weekend. They were SO into it. Bravo, bro's. (Lets get these guys pendants!)

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.



As soon as I posted, I remembered that's where I'd seen 'em. I've already got my sawhorse, 2x4 nailed on each side, and my oasis log is sitting high (away from the dogs)! Even got a few chops in last night before it got dark! Awesome idea!

Hey Choppers!
Your village struck me with awe!

I really looked forward to a first-time slicing on a group log, but what with the level of beauty going on, retreated back into the huddled masses appreciating radiant greatness.
It didn't even occur to me 'till reading these most recent postings that a group log was not seen...

B.Bobaloo, thanks for taking a few minutes to chat - and keep on your doc, man: pain does not help the healing process.
Brilliant showing, every one of yuz!

A friendly warning to the chap casting aspersions on my new friends here:

It's both about the art and the process.
If you like it, buy it: reward the artist who makes you happy.
If you don't, be quiet and listen: the artist gets it, others get it, you don't get it.
If you pay attention, you might learn a thing or two about why you don't get it.

Maybe next year I'll get up the nerve to sink my claws into some palm wood...

Also, did anyone happen to get a pic of the finished small mask type carving I did for the auction? Anyone know who won it?

Yeah, you're right about the group log. We had one and Monkeyman started it real fine, but we ran out of sawhorses to balance it on.

It turned out that once somebody started chipping away at a log, they just couldn't stop. It was great seeing novices get hooked and not going away. The only problem was they were using all the available sawhorses. That's OK, next time we're setting up a whole LOT of carving areas.

We learned a lot, and it all came off great considering it was organized in a kind of unorganized way.

Chop chop swim chop chop musubi chop cool room drink swim hi mean gene hi buzzy drink chop chop ...

I dropped it. I went to buy a new chainsaw. Now I'm happy as hell. I'll be bringing it to the Balboa chop.
