Thanks Tok Tok, and just for the record, I like your surfing hog too!
And Ben, Johnny and GMan, thanks for visiting and for your insight on
the aquatic scene. Even if there is a real Hogfish, from whatever fish
family he is, I'm gonna keep calling mine Hogfish too.
And speaking of Hogfish Two


I am trying to make this one a little fancier than the first one.
Also working on a rather big "Fishermans God" panel but just in the
really early stages, so something "tiki" is actually in the works up here.
Thanks for popping in.

Thanks Ben, always appreciate an appearance from the master! Sit down and
enjoy a cocktail.
Well, fishing season is over up here and it's time to move on to bigger
and hopefully better things.
Hogfish II


It's been pretty nice up here in the northwoods and the snow is actually
going away. Hmmmm. maybe time to get my hands on a BIG log.

Great work, I love that canine tooth and all the detail you
put into him. Nice creative work as usual.

Are you using the tung oil again?
I ordered some polymerized tung oil
over the X-mass break. I looked it up
after seeing one of your posts.

Bravo Conga... another winner!

We've lost all 24 inches of our snow thanks to tornados and rain and 60 degree record breaking temperatures.

But alas, it is short lived for 4 inches of snow is on it's way. We'll be sending you a bit too so you better keep it indoors until at least May.

Loving the small projects and the quick tunraround! Looking forward to the next CongaCarve!

It is unbelievable how fast you are getting along with all this nice carvings. Another one finished. Great challenge.

Thanks guys, It's fun to do some smaller things and the penguin, manaia,
and hogfish have generated some nice feedback from local "non tiki" peeps
who think they're cool, but I am anxious to get some big chunks of basswood
to return to a larger scale. I am currently working on my last (for the
time being) cedar panel, it's the traditional cook island fishermans god
on top (about 2 feet) and will either be another manaia on the bottom
(same size) or something else. Things are pretty well roughed out but
nothing that would be of much interest at this point.
Thanks for thinking of ole' conga, more stuff soon.

Inquiring minds want to know, right GMan. (I would insert smiley face
if I knew how).
Okay, this is pretty rough, and only partially conceived...but here goes

Like I say, I'm still working out the bottom of the panel, and the
face needs a lot of work. This one will look old.

So it's pretty cold up here today, -17, but not too cold to do a little
outside work. Hey, if it's not too cold for the Packers and Giants, it
can't be too cold for a tiki carver. Did a little outside work on the
Fisherman's God/Manaia, but had to do it in short little spells, the
fingers get cold you know.

Lotsa really cool stuff being posted lately, you all provide plenny of
inspiration.

You're a tougher man than me Conga....it was in the high 60's here and I didn't work outside very long

This new piece lost a lotta wood since we saw him last. You must keep your chisels supa-sharp! Nice work, thanks for letting us see him.

Yo Conga, LOVE watching your Works Progress. It's Difficult trying to see inside that warped little mind thing between your ears, but then it's that way for us All. However Yours seems to be the Most interesting and thats why your pieces seem to have all the Charm we only Wish ours could have. Keep pumping them out, fergit'bout them cold fingers. Cold fingers become Bold fingers and we Know Bold fingers make good movies??

Ben says that after swatting away another mosquito. Get too Bold out in the Cold and them fingers will just break off.

So whats the update on the fishing mania? The stacked figure is a pretty nice concept and different direction.
