This guy blows me away!

Bee-you-tee-full carving job - it's very much in the style of real Islander carvings, glad you rounded off the head, naturalistic. Freakin' GREAT job.

Buzzard, Tiki Thomas, The Big T, Cammo, nickyr2009, Benzart, Bowana, big daddy, Thank You for the kind words!!!!
So, back in Nov. Buzzy brought his tiki drum to the chop of the month, I was interested in experiencing the sound, because his other one sold at Oasis before I could even see it. This time I was able to play it. I fell in love with it and it's sound. I asked Buzzy if he would guide me through the process of making a tiki drum. It would be a Christmas gift for my brother. He gladly agreed and I began at The House Of Buzz.
Here are some progress photos:





I ran out time. Under estimated the work time, and work load. I ended up giving my brother a painting of the drum to be, and showed him the "work in progress." He was stoked!!
So back to work.


A group shot:

More to come........
-Johnny.

Doing some nice work down there Jabtiki. I really like what you are
doing with the feller in the background, great design on the head.
Also, the drum looks great and also looks like a lot of work. Are
you planning to use goatskin? Cowhide?

man jt that drum is amaaaazing!
looks like you have been getting some good
tiki tips at the house of buzz

wait a sec,are you sure buzzy didnt rent you
a half carved drum,and you just posed with it?

naw,i heard buzzy charges alot to rent a half
carved drum so you can pose with it,and now that your back to being
a poor college boy,the fee would be waaay to much

so i guess you did carv this
good job johny

Thanks to all that stopped by. I finally got around to posting some progress pics.
I've been doing some multitasking, along with working on the tiki drum I've started some new projects and finished a couple stains.
Finally slapped some finish on this one.

and on the Marq

Started a "Tribute to Tiki BoB"

Then started on this one..

...some more time into this one....

..and some more....


And now back to the drum.

I put two coats of pecan walnut stain to start off with


Can't wait to finally get some cowhide on this bad boy.
-Johnny

Took it over to The House Of Buzz for some help. Buzzard came by to hang out, 4WD and Babalu stopped by also.

Thanks for the help Buzzy.

I also got back my 1st mug. Thank You Babalu.



I put a little more time into the Ku.


Thanks for stopping by.
