Many many thanks to all for checking out the thin man. Tikifreak,
GMan, Seeksurf, Ben, BK, Harro, Surfintiki, Mooney and TikiPat, your
gracious endorsement of this latest slab of basswood is deeply gratifying.
His finish is a combination of a total torch burn and follow up sanding,
a walnut stain, and a few coats of tung oil.
And Ben, not much of a story with the tabla. It's pretty hard to scan the
Conga and Mrs. Conga abode without spotting a tiki or some form of drum.
This is the most extreme example, tikis and drums everywhere.

Some drums I think I play pretty well, congas, djembe. Now the tablas are
another story completely, Zakir Hussein I AM NOT.

The last guy came out looking wikkid. Your lounge is really looking like an old skool tiki bar. Great work. I need to come hear you jam someday.

Hey Johnny, thanks a lot. Sorry for the late response, been sick for 9 days
with the worst cold I have ever had. I have a small project started but haven't
looked at a chisel since last week. Another great thing about Wisconsin,
spring is so cold and sloppy that when it finally gets nice we all act like it's
summer...and get sick as dogs.
Thanks for the comps on the lounge, you are welcome anytime. Just slap that
slit gong on your back and cross the pond. I'll pick you up on the Wisconsin
side.

Hello everyone.
It was a beautiful day for yard work in northern Wisconsin. But it was also
a beautiful day for working on a new carving, call it a "modern" png-inspired
spirit figure. So I skipped the yard work.



Hope ya all had fun today.

YEAHHH! skip the yardwork! "Modern" artwork always a better alternative.

Thanks for the kind words Ben, Seeks, Surf and GMan. He's gonna be an
all-seeing, deep thinking modern spy!
He's fun and (I think) moving along nicely, and then I am ready to dive into a
pile of eight and nine foot basswood logs. Oh boy! Just like Lakesurfer said
somewhere, time to work on BIG STUFF.
A little update on "Spy III."


See You all soon, and have a great time at the South Florida Chop!

Nice, the accessory details on the beak-head area
and the notches on the eye are cool.
