Hi friends. Some progress with "pencil neck" after returning from sunny California..slowed
somewhat by a nasty hook knife gash to my right index finger. Happened friday nite while
carving the face..just a little reminder NOT to watch tv and carve at the same time.
Learn from ole conga...be careful.

pencil neck looks pretty happy. What were you watching when you gashed your finger that put such a grin on it?

That "pencil neck tiki" is wild! I love him. Is his head separet from his body. What i mean is he all one piece?

Thanks Ben Johnny and Moondance.
Working on "pencil neck" is a poor substitute to being at CoonTiki II, but it's the
best I can do this weekend.
Moondance, this started as a single piece but the neck got too skinny and I had to
whack it off so I could finish the body, it was going to break off anyway.
At this point the head is not glued to the body...just in place with a dowell, but it will
be glued to permanence eventually.


Thanks for stopping by at Conga's shack to take a look.

Thanks guys...
good to have you pop bye Tikifreak...keep chizzlin' away.
Funny thing Ben...I was really liking how this one looked with a blond finish (just sealer)
but that spooky smile was pulling me to the dark side...and things have taken a more sinister
turn.
You made me chuckle GMan...I see it too. Any similarity to Roswell is purely an accident.

Well it's been a month and I still haven't finished the "png baby."
Buzzy would have knocked out fifty of these in the same span...but I'm gonna
put it down pretty soon.

This guy will be all wrapped up with a few more finishing details and then it's
on to something BIG. There I sorta know what I'm doing.

WOW! I thought it was done before when it was a natural color. Nice finishing touches!

Thanks Craig...The paint is a little "nod" to some of the painter-carvers from
the past...perhaps most notably some of the Oceanic Arts stuff. I did like the little
bugger in the lighter sealer finish but something was telling me that it needed to
be somewhat dark and spooky. Appreciate your visit...I like what you have started over
in your thread.

hello...tiki (or my abberation of it) is alive and reasonably well in Northern Wisconsin.
Have struggled with lack of motivation the last few weeks (partly due to an actual live gig by
the Mensters which required some practice time). However, I have been working on a few projects.
One is a wall plaque in cedar....another is an actual tiki (I hope) made from basswood...and
the third is a tall butternut tiki. See ya soon.
