I love your vision, conga - totally unique. Birdman is excellent. in the picture above - the headhunter on the left is insane. He's a freaky tiki!

Conga, way to put the wraps on this one! Beautiful finish on it and I love the use of color.

Nice lineup of some quality work!

Hope you got some of this great weather we've been having in Southeast WI. Upper 70's today and I daresay I got a sunburn working outside.

Spring has sprung! Now let's see some big carves!

Wow, the birdman is going nuts and pooping all over the place, just
thrilled with all the positive comments. Many thanks Freddie (hey that
Northern Wisconsin chop sounds like a good idea--any others lurking out
there)..Surfintiki, Freak, Harro, Seeks, Polynesiac and Lake. I really
appreciate all of you great chizzlers stopping by, didn't expect so much
out of this "outta box" fella.
We're getting the nice weather up here too Lakesurfer, and I am pumped to
dig into some big basswood logs starting this weekend. I am thinking of
a couple projects, both kinda different. No kidding

Hey thanks a lot Sneaky. I'm glad he caught your eye, since you seems to
have the occasional "bird brain" syndrome too! Keep up the good work on
your side of the country.

Hi kids, you should be carving instead of sitting by the computer:-)
Just kidding. Lotsa nice stuff being posted again.
Here's what's happening up here....A NW Coast totem...six footer...
basswood.


Don't worry, I will be attempting to tiki-fi this one. I have had
some interest in putting stuff into a really nice store up here called
"Luxury Living." They get tons of traffic with peeps heading up north
to cottages and summer homes...maybe ole' conga will actually sell something.
Have fun.

Not really, Conga's other job, is Santa Clause.


Another gem from WI, Good luck with the store!

Way to go Conga! Anybody walking into a shop called Luxury Living has got to have a fat wallet! Best wishes my friend.

PS I dig NW Pacific rim stuff too. Not chainsaw grizzly's but coastal native arts.

Happy Holiday from "Up North" in Wisconsin!
Thanks Paipo, always honored to impress one of the "masters."
Hi Lake, the weather has finally turned into spring up here, no turning
back, just the occcasional tornado.
Seeks, nice to see you over here again. I am gonna keep this one right up
your alley, promise.
Hey Hodadhank, been thinking about you a lot, Mindy is ready to move west.
I am really striving for "coastal native" but I am sure as hell gonna
get some tiki in here somehow.
And Robin, thanks heeps for finally telling ole' Conga that you have been
around. I thought I saw you in the corner over there. I appreciate
the kind remarks. I musta been ADD before it became popular, I have a
hard time following much of a plan.
So, here we go, holiday updates of the latest chunk of wood



I know it's kind hard to see what's going on, but the top figure is an
eagle or raven, the second figure holding the fish in his mouth is a
beaver, with his paws on each side of the fish, and his legs underneath
the fish. I hope you can see the fish.

On the bottom we have figures to the left and right, which I think will
become the connection to "tiki." I still have to decide what will be
in the middle of the figures.
The rough-out work is finished and I will be spending the next couple
of weeks with the hook knife and sandpaper. Then we are gonna get fancy
with a little stain and paint. Sorry to ramble, but it's a holiday and
some cocktails have been seen at the Conga Lounge.
