I think Conga will have to thaw a bit before we hear from him... if it was -5 here the last 4 nights I know it was colder up by him. Yesterday we warmed to a high of 9 degrees.
Winter has been tough on us Midwesterners.

Good chops Conga... look forward to the next update, but I think you should set up shop indoors until at least... June.

Hi Guys!
GMan...tougher than you? Come on, you chase down toothy pigs, rassle
Crocs, risk yer life in the dunes, and I'm tougher than you? It's
just a little cold and you can dress for it. Heck I went cross country
skiing last weekend, two and a half hours at 13 below.
Ben...Warped mind? Charm? I love the combination of "warped charm" and
I think I'll use it when I get good enough to market my hacking. I
think you exhibit a bit of warped charm too.
and Johnny and Lake, thanks for checking in. I have continued to work on
the Cook Manaia panel, while I keep going back to look at the recent
Lakesurfer stuff.
Here's the panel posing with my new road bike

and I'm still being observed by this fella

And let me just add that all of you impress the shit out of me.

Nice work as usual.

Like the bike wind chill might be a sore spot
right now.

Thanks guys, and hello everyone. Still moving ahead with the Fishermans
God/Manaia panel. Some fresh snow up here but we are temporarily out of
the deep freeze


I know I'm in tough company here with all the great stuff posted lately,
Skully, Bowana, Mooney, Lakesurfer, and others, but I just needed to do one
of these guys. Just about finished with shaping and sanding, and then
I'll try to fancy things up a little bit. I think it looks kinda funky
upside down too.

See ya soon and have fun carving kids.

Dang Conga...look at all that snow. It takes a true carver to get out and work in that stuff. The work is killa! Keep kickin' out doses of that Conga magic. Your work is major brain food my friend.

Only 6 short more months until shirt sleeve carving weather.

The way you positioned the arm holes and the cut out around the, um, er, *
$&$% area, was a talented way to add another tiki face in the carving.

Thanks for peeking-in guys. The groundhog says we get six more weeks
of winter...that gives me a lot of time to be patient in finishing this
one. Also started a little wall piece that I'll toss into the
"tiki exchange" if its good enough, so I will be bizzie enough till
spring.
And Johnny...I didn't notice the "hidden face" that you mentioned
until you mentioned it...the "thingie" makes him sorta look like an
Elephant-iki.

Well it's a wrap on the Cook Island Fisherman's God/Manaia
panel. 52 inches of cedar tiki love coming your way from the
hinterlands of northern Wisconsin




Thanks for stopping in for a peek, and thanks for all the recent
inspiration in the carving thread. Happy happy happy.

Yes I vote for the Hat.
