Thanks a lot Flynny...
Well...just had to post a coupla pics of things we're working on in the Northwoods Tiki Factory,
this is the big guy starting to take shape. The burn is temporary at this point and gives me
an idea of where shadows will fall one he's finished and placed in the lounge

planning to go a bit deeper to "skinny" up the body and I'm still working out the legs and
feet.
Also working on a mask that seems to show influences from numerous sources

thanks for looking!

Finky...always room for people in the Congatiki Lounge. Not much for aloha-wear
but at least a lot of peeps.
Thanks to all for looking and for the comps. Gotta get back to work so they look
better soon.

Conga, you live way to close to Milwaukee to be serving Bud Light at a party. Everyone has fun at the Congatiki Lounge!

Yer right there Finkdaddy but I wash my hands of the whole thing. I am exclusively
a tequila and rum guy, so beer drinkers are on their own at the Congatiki Lounge.

Oooh! I missed an important detail here - the rum/tequila one. That's correct! Light beer drinkers - bring your favorite!

It bugs me when people pass judgement on the carving forum but don't actually participate in/contribute to it.
Besides, from where I'm sitting it says:

(italics mine)

I show off my work in the hopes that other people will show off theirs and keep stoking my creative fires.
The rise in the quantity and quality of stone and bone carving over the last 6 months is a pretty good indication that the "ask questions, give and get tips" part is working fine too.

Keep on posting your stuff conga, it's some of my favourite work on TC - and that goes for the rest of you too, newbie or master.

Many thanks Basement, Paipo and Tikigap.
You make some nice points Paipo. I agree that the progress shots are very important
in seeing the possibilities with whatever we are working in, wood, bone or stone. They
give us a chance to follow the creation with the creator, like Finkdaddy's latest effort.
The anticipation of a little update is a large part of the journey. Thank you and all
fellow carvers for the little nudges along the way.
So, we journey on in the Northwoods.
I didn't have a real plan when I started the big guy here, just to let it evolve. We've
gone from something that started as a sorta Moai with Benzart style turned down lips,
and now I am seeing shades of the Bob Lutz and Charles Rosencrans carvings on pages 250-251
in "The Book"

and then we have this mask...yes he will get a right eye...soon

You all come back now, y'here!

Great work as usual. It must be kind of fun having two going at the same time. Work a little on this one, get distracted, work a little on that one, get distracted, work a little on the first one, and so on.


I caught the rum reference in your party shot. At least the weather finaly broke and you can use the lounge.

Hi Ben and Johnny.
Actually I have no idea where the big guy is headed...the result may not be great art but it will
be great fun. The mask is starting to take on the look of a Roman centurion, which might not be
all bad either. My very first carving experience was around 20 years ago when I tried to carve
a small Jesus face, and no matter what I did it looked just like Hulk Hogan. I put my tools away
for 17 years and quit watching wrestling. Anyway I'm just digging in and hoping that the end
result will be decent.
And Ben, don't worry, I'm too cheap to let the little kids drink the rum or tequila.
