Daayyum Conga that pile of wood is to Drool over. Just get a bunch of us carvers up there drooling and the logs will slkide right down to yor back yard. But then will take a year to dry off.
Your Totem is really looking Respectable. You should join the totem pole forums as I'm sure you would fit right in there too but on second thought we don't want to be sharing you with no other stinkin forums.

Mother Nature delivers! --and she says here's your logs to carve. Good way to take advantage of an otherwise unfortunate situation. Nice new carves too! Hope to see you soon!

It's raining logs! Nice! How sweet to get plenty of clean lumber right out of you own backyard, and without butchering any trees. The new totem is looking pretty damn smooth too.

As Gman would say, "debark seal end now!" Looks like you will be busy for awhile.

Hello friends in tiki. Have made a little progress here at Totem Central.
This has turned into quite a project, it's holding me back from getting back
into South Pacific carving. However at this point I have decided to keep pushing
ahead. Thanks for looking, do you see any "tikis" yet?






Really enjoy all the great stuff being posted, hope ya all enjoyed
a great weekend of carving!

Mahalo to all.
Benz, you are too funny. I am trying to fit a lot of stuff into this, as
you pointed out. It sorta reminds me of the old Johnny Cash tune "One Piece
At A Time", about the guy that builds a car piece by piece, "It's a 55-56-57-58-
59 Automobile." It's a tlingit-tikified-png-northwoods totem pole.

Seeks, yea it's fun attempting to fill the spaces and voids with figures,
still have one spot at the bottom that needs attention, maybe tonight.

Babalu, thanks for popping in, no pics? Hope you get some soon, things are
working fine up here.

Thanks for the props on the fish Cammo. He was just gonna have a slit mouth
but the ole hook knife was just pulled in deeper and wider. Maybe under
the influence of the "ancients"

But still a lot of work to be done, I need to do my best sanding on this
one, and there are way too many deep corners that need my attention. I
was hoping to get it finished by the 4th of July so I could get it into the
fancy schmancy tourist store that I mentioned ealier. I'm not even going
to be close, but I think I need to keep it for a while anyway.

Happy carving to all.


edit--p.s. to Ben--It's not cold up here anymore, temps have been in the
80s and 90s, less rain and wind, hey it's summer. Cold and shitty weather
will probably return in about four weeks.

Oh, and that is a butt-stink of wood too. Nice score. Didja debark it yet? That should keep you busy (and your wrists in ice) for a while!

Show us pics once you have it cleaned and stacked.
