Conga... as usual another unusual piece from my Northwoods carving brother! Great finish on this one... love the look!

We are done with our latest 6 inch snow storm and are in the process of sending you the next one. I'm pretty sure that Winter Storm Watches are in effect for your part of the state and you will enjoy a Friday afternoon of shuffling cars around and moving snow.

74.5 inches and counting here... carving outside is a faint memory for me and Spring seems very, very far away.

Looking forward to the next piece...

This guy is "right on" Conga...good job man.

If you and Lake ever need a break from that nasty white stuff, come on down to San Diego for a look see. We'll post you up till your bones thaw out.

The Tangamanaia turned out sweet all stained up, and I really liked the subtle surface decoration, but it's this guy that worries me:

Are you sure he's only observing?

Thanks Johnny and Lake, we have to keep working hard to represent the
"Northern Guild of Tiki Central."
Ben...alright...Spy with hat. If I pull it off I can start carving
cowboys.
Babalu...that sounds like a nice offer. When the groundhog predicted
6 more weeks of winter I envisioned ALL snow gone by mid-march. Believe
me, it's not gonna happen. Even though I do a lot of skiing, this shit
is really getting me down.
I'm glad my stuff makes you happy, Seeks. I'm really anxious to get outside
and start working on some big stuff.
And thanks to you Paipo, nice to have you stop in. I have been sorta lazy
with "Spy" cuz I got a little to skinny in the waist and I'm worried that
he will turn into a large body-less pendant. Gonna get back to work tonight
and get this guy finished.

Another amazing artist on TC.

I just spend a better part of an hour (don't tell the boss) browsing through and getting a feel for your work and I'm quite impressed. Your tiki's are top notch and I'm really diggin' the offbeat pieces you've done of the winter. I'm no expert, but I know what I like and I'm keeping an eye on this for sure.

Great work.

Hello Flatblack, and welcome to Tiki Central. Thanks for your
kind remarks on my stuff, I really appreciate it! Please come
back often and see what's happening in Conga's little corner of
the world, and don't let your boss catch you!
I have tried to create a body of work that is a little different,
someone off the beaten path, but still rooted in authentic polynesian
art. I'm glad some of it caught your attention.

Thanks Seeks, he scares me too. In fact the prospect of NEVER having outside
carving weather is scaring me as well, we were 17 below zero a few days ago.
But I picked up 6 8-foot chunks of basswood yesterday and I am proceeding
with great excitement towards the light of spring.
Also knocked out this fella from a piece of oak. It will be the last time
I do anything with oak...to many slivers.

Conga,

SOON, the snow will melt and you will be outside carving. Hell, in a few months you will be worrying if the ice in your drink will last long enough.....

Keep doing what you are doing and before you know it you will have a few more beautiful carvings, some new skills and perspectives, and spring will be here. If you are totally freaking out, grab a cheapo plane ticket and come sit by the pool with me for a few days - open invite.

Nice stuff Boss,

G

Yeah Right! Ha Ha

The Oak NZ piece looks pretty good.

You should make another one of those spy guys and stain it ebony. Not every body has their own agency.

Thanks for the invite GMan, very very tempting. Too bad I still have to
work. And praise all that is tiki, it is starting to warm up. Lotsa snow
melted today.
Johnny, still working on the Spy figure. I was really close to throwing the
intimidating bastard onto the junk pile and then he tricked me into actually
working and thinking. We're falling in love.
And Gapper, thanks for the kind words, definitely a hat, but he might not
need it till next winter.
Whatever this doggone thing is, bird, mosquito, spy, tiki, no I guess he's
definitely not tiki, he looks leaner but still tough.


Now he has to stay under wraps until he's finished and stained. Big logs
await with the warm weather. More tiki stuff, I promise.

He's got a real bird look to him, but also very alien.

Very cool. I like him, quite unique.
