Conga, Nothing much slows you down does it? I Really love how your last "Broken Necked" guy came out looking like one of my favorite cartoon characters, "Calvin" with Hobbes. He has that wicked smile and that mischievous look.

and sure enought...they do have a similar BIG grin. that guy got a little outta hand with
the paint and all...musta been one of those nights with either too much or too little rum.
Thanks for popping over to conga's korner.

I need more Conga Corner Carving pics. It's hard to know what you are woking on? Three, maybe four pieces on your bench now? Are you having a hard time focusing, or are you on some vision-quest? Gman confused......

Looks like it was painted with palm brushes up a river named sepik! Love it! Thats da kine tiki you have in your bedroom so when you wake up in the morning, you open your eyes and see that smile! No way you could have bad days waking up looking at him!!!!

Hey guys...thanks for popping in at the Conga Korner...
Surfintiki...the guy posted above on this page is about a five footer...progressing very
nicely (I think) for an actual Conga-TIKI. Going to dig a lot deeper after just one cocktail
tonight....will post some weekend pics.
GMan...nice to see ya....after a couple of weeks searching I have finally found inspiration for
several pieces...three things in progress now and a couple more in the deep recesses of the brain.
I have a carving demo in two weeks at a local lumber mill...I wanna have several progress pieces
so people can see some full blown wood removal...some detail carving...and some finer hook knife
work. I did it a year ago and started from scratch on a half log and only scratched the surface
in the five hours I was there. It was a hoot...they are expecting around 700 people this year
which is a lot for such a small town (8600.) They do a really cool "forestry field day" thing
with furniture makers...artists...logging suppliers...etc. Actually the free breakfast is what
attracts the people.
And Kaha...my buddy....thanks heeps. I thought I really missed the "tiki boat" on pencil neck...
but I dig him...so what the heck. He didn't generate a heck of a lot of commits (bad joke..sorry)...
so it's really nice to have you "spark" on him. We're gonna tip a couple in your honor later
tonight.

Gotta love holiday weekends. Lots of time for tennis and tikis.


The feller above is basswood and i am having a little trouble with my cedar wall figure,
the freaky tiki. It has a thin hollow strip running the length of the wood and we are
in the facial reconstruction phase right now. Pictures at 11.

Way to be Conga! The Bass wood guy is really taking shape. Not sure what can be done with the other, but I'm sure you will figure out something real wikkid for him - you always do!

More pics this weekend?

Happy weekend! Mr. Pointyhead, the cedar panel, is done. Here he enjoys the holiday weekend
with friends in the lounge.

And the Tiki head is progressing, started doing some detail and hook knife stuff today

Gotta put the chisels down for a while, playing congas with the local blues band tonight. See
ya later!

Keep having fun,

Conga, YOU Working on SUNDAY TOO? Cool!. I Really Love Mr Pointy-Head, he has an Incredible presence and looks great with that group of Mis-fits hanging around your place. I wouldn't spend too much time with them as they look like Trouble brewing.
Nice stuff Conga.

Mr pointy head rocks! you've got some wild visions! I really like the guy in the second picture, second from left behind the conga - I don't think I'd seen him all finished up...I'll need to go through your post again and check out the other cool stuff I missed!!!!

That new tiki is progressing very nicely. That bass wood really looks like butter. I like how just when most carvers would be finished, conga gears up the detail and then turns it into something wicked!!! I'm looking forward to see what becomes of this one.

Have fun at your carving demo!! sounds like a blast! (free breakfast is always nice too!)

Geez Conga, you've got just about the coolest tiki collection ever! Pointy head looks terrific, and I can't wait to see the new guy pan out.
Is the weather up-north staying warm? It should start snowing any day now.
