We could even get a Witco catalogue (I know where we can get one, no kidding) and blow up the examples to full size at Kinko's, and transfer them right onto the wood first! Has that ever been done?!



You and I both know it's been done, hahahahaaa!!!

The trick with the Witco copies is to dip your already sooty brush back into the poly can, so as to silt it up and turn everything black......then put on ten coats so you can FINALLY put an end to that old lie about not being able to polish a turd!

So, what's the word on the November Chop? Did you guys talk about it at the last one? You want me to host?

YES!

One vote for Babalu's house. And everybody wants hot dogs!

I'm thinking of making a Witco-esque design of 'the Fair Island Maid', and cutting like 12 of them out of some 12x2 white cedar planks. How much do those cost??? You just hand-chisel out the details, right? Sand the edges. Burn. Scrape. Then a few coats in the right places of Harvest Orange and Lemon Yellow, then hose-spray it with laquer. Got all my Christmas presents made.

Here's a question - how long did it actually take those Witco wood jocks to knock out a Clama? (A cat-llama) Start to finish? 15 minutes? Less? The trick is to do 50 at a time.

Since there's no way I'm going to be able to get out of working every Saturday in November, I'm putting in my vote for a Sunday Chop.

How about Sunday the 18th? Is it new thread time?

I still think I could get that Witco look faster with a sand blaster...we'll have to test my theory. I need to build a sand booth for clay anyway...

I might telecyberchopcommute. These Witco things would be 10 times easier to do at my place, and I practically live at Babalu's anyway.

You folks go ahead! Email me a hot dog!

I think Kate had a vote for the 18th as well for a special occasion , although I can't really make it that day, got a wedding to go to. Might be able to swing by in the morning for a bit. If that day works out well for a few others, I think we should go for it.

People are asking about a name for the Chop group - it's probably a good idea to start throwing names around, just for yuks.

San Diego Tiki Choppers (too motorcycle?)
San Diego Chop Chop Club (too long?)

or take the 'San Diego' out -

Tiki Choppers
The Chop Club

?

Well, the Myspace name is "San Diego Tiki Carvers" and the URL is myspace.com/sandiegotikicarvers .
I think just plain ol' "San Diego Tiki Carvers" is great, as it implys nothing and is right to the point. We're just an artist colony of wood carvers who chop and demo together.

Hey Dudes and Dudettes,

I'm kinda leaning that we don't really have a group per say, but more like a "gathering" each month...you guys wouldn't want people thinking that they had to join something in order to come carve would you? It's open to all...it belongs to all...the more the merrier...the world is our group, let's get as many as we can to come to a "gathering" with us.

No, I don't wear Burgenstocks, or worship crystals....I can't afford those fancy things.

Babs, don't make this all complicated!

We just need a name so when people who've never seen us before ask us who the heck we are we can say we're the "__________".

And we need something to put on a sign so we can say we'll be under the "____________" sign at the park or whatever.

What's wrong with Birkenstocks????? These look good enough to SMOKE!

Yeah Cam, them are pretty fancy kicks there...fair warning: don't wear them into Lemon Grove poppa.

Ok, ok,...but a least be creative with a name! You do realize that half our little gang is not from San Diego right?

Sorry, I missed this one. My carving tools, however, did come in handy over the weekend and I thought about ya'll. My bathroom door kept on sticking due to the 10,000 coats of paint. I whipped out my chisels and chiseled off the paint. The door no longer sticks.

I miss you guys!

I was thinking about that. Some of the best Chops haven't been in San Diego, actually - Oceanside, Lemon Grove, etc.

What about SoCal Tiki Carvers, or SoWhat Tiki Choppers, or So-So Tiki Carvers?

Or just Tiki Choppers Internationale?
