Can't wait to try a VooDoo Kitty.

Really looking forward to art camp Sunday!

I am looking for a pc. of wood to carve, and am willing to shell out some cash for it. Please help me!

I'll bring some yummies to munch on!

You might want to show up with some of those blue hospital sheet things and some blue washcloths just to be safe.

Buzzy Out!

Well guys looks like I'm going to make this 3 in a row we miss.

Came home from the awesome time at the Light Gallery Tiki Freakout show to some family drama. I promise I'll bring my Neptune Salad and Bruschetta next time.

Hey Clydesdale, save me some wood!

Hey Cheeky Girl, save me some VooDoo Kitty!

Miss y'all!

Jen

It was the best Carve-O-Rama ever!!!

Had a great time. Missed the Skinny Dogs and the Cannibal clan though.

People carved and painted in a delightfully mellow, drama-free environment. I got a lot of work done today.

The Voodoo Kitty was awesome. Looking forwarded to sampling some more at Oasis.

Thanks again to Bill and Lennie for opening up their home to all of us.

The July Carve-O-Rama! Done, and done! Nice day for it too. Great weather and some new folks, jab tiki, TikiMango,TikiG and Capn' Jim (that name will have to do for now). Nice to see ya, guys! Let's see what's going on, shall we? C'mon! It'll be fun!

In the Sittin' Area:

Kate working away on the multi-functional Carving Hut sign we'll have for Oasis. It will also serve as a breadboard for making Tiki Sandwiches.


Clysdalle finally figuring out how a pen works. Hmm...that's two lefties in a row here.


Cheeky Girl copying her designs line for line onto her post covers. Remember that it's notebook paper. Some of those lines you won't be needing.


Mieko and Musubi Mom painting up Mieko's pendants.


Careful not to accidentally stick your brush in Lennie's bean dip.


Oh! My sensitive area!


Buzzy from last month's Carve...


..and Buzzy from this month's Carve. Are those spiderwebs?


Saludos desde Buenos Aires!


Let's see what those carvers are up to, hm?


geedavee gives his the old "Burn Baby, Burn" treatment.


Jim starts his first Tiki with one of those logs that are hard and crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside. Much like a Fig Newton.


Looks like you might need a bigger boat, eh Capn'? And stop dropping my tools in the dirt, dammit!


jab tiki jabbin', mon!


Buzzard buzzin' it!


Nice looking Moai!


Cheeky bumps it up a notch from last month with her electric router.



4WD sealing up his Tiki Mug Collection Containment System.


geedavee trims the fat Jenny Craig style.


Cyndi finishes hers! A proud mom she is.


Mieko's nephew catches the carving bug!


Meanwhile, back in the Sittin' Area:


Kate, aren't you done yet? Jeez! And what's that empty Voodoo Kitty glass there on the table? Oh, never mind.


Either carve, draw, paint, drink, or keep walking!


Hey, those humans left....let us dance!


I like being the photographer. I'm not in any pictures. Muhahah!
Sam, Alex, Scott, Jen, where ya at?!
Thanks Bill and Lennie for hosting another great Carve. Nice to see everybody!

Yer pal,

Bowana-donna-fofonna

For my first Carve-O-Rama, it was awesome. It was great putting faces to the names and being surrounded by so many creative people. I'll be more prepared next time, with at least a sketch book, or crayons... or silly putty... something! The Voodoo Kitties were tasty. 4WDtiki, thanks for allowing me in.

Hi all, Greg here.
Just want to say a big Thank You to Bill and Lennie for yesterday's chop invitation. I hitched a ride with TikiMango from Sylmar to hopefully learn how to carve a tiki using palm log wood. At first I was a little nervous about going, not having met anyone yet I didn't know how a newbie would be accepted into this carving circle. All anxiety was forgotten as soon as we arrived; Bill was fantastic from the start and friends, no attitude at all was present, all the way down to the family dog! I learned so much my creative juices went from slow simmer in the morning to a rolling boil by mid afternoon. SO MUCH TO SOAK IN. I brought my digital camera to capture techniques(Thanks Bowana for posting your shots above).

I'm glad I had a chance to talk with several people here before I dove into my first large wood carving project. I'm fully confident today to begin a wood carved idol..a magnificent TIKI.

I look forward to meeting everyone again at Tiki Oasis in August to compare notes once again. By the way, on the way home from Oceanside to Sylmar TikiMango and myself stopped at BAHOOKA in Rosemead to order a round of ribs and grogs for dinner, as I had to have a green colored mug. Bahooka is a trip!

Thanks again one last time. TikiG
