That's awesome! That is UNIQUE! One of a kind! I like the subtle color to tie all parts together. It's like a Northwest, Maori family totem-tiki conglomeration! Nice work.

Many thanks Tikifreak, GMan, Heath, Babs, Benz and Surfintiki, always
appreciate your support for my whittlin'. The NW Coast totem was a fun
project but at almost six weeks it sorta kicked my butt.
GMan, the tree mess is just about cleaned up, I'll have to post a few pics
of our major wilderness project. Most of the wood was cut into firewood
pieces cuz I already have soooo much carving wood stacked in my garage.
And Ben, another reference to Conga as the "old man." Just remember that
you are not the only "ancient one" around here
At any rate, a side shot of the totem and another pic of something I started
yesterday. Anyone recognize him?


Thanks for visiting.

The totem came our very nice, you gotta be proud of that one. So what's next out of those thousand logs that were delivered to your place as a sign to carve?

Another top notch tight carve job there Conga! You should charge admission to your tiki bar up there in the Northwoods, you'd be the next best draw to Lambeau Field.

I also love the hints of color. They really help your carving pop.

The totem looks really nice and exceptionally crafted. Purely traditional can get a little boring but you have just got to love the originality of your work. Another great piece. What's in your next tiki's hands? Can't wait to see the next photo's.

Better catch up, been busy chopping logs and cleaning up after the aforementioned
storm.
Ben, ever since I got that new bike you been pickin' on me. Thanks for
dredging up that old picture so people can see how tough bikers are in Northern
Wisconsin.
Johnny P...I will have to post some pics of the log piles. Almost all of it has
been cut up into firepit size chunks. It's a fun project but it keeps me
away from carving.
And thanks for your comments on the totem LakeSurfer, Tikilizard and Seeksurf.
I really enjoy studying the NW styles. I'm just a pretender compared to some of
those guys.
But I still am pretending to be a tiki carver as this rascal will attest.
He's holding a bowl...

Wow Conga! The totem is awesome! I just got back from Alaska 2 weeks ago, and yours could pass for any of them up there. Have you been to Alaska? It looks like you have first hand knowledge of totem poles. Great stuff!

The Johnny Cash song was about a Cadillac! (One piece at a time).

And GMAN's right - we wanna see pictures of the cleaned wood pile.

The pic from Benz is pretty damned funny!

It's good to be back...

GAP

Hey conga, that totem is crazy nice! I noticed the high surfaces are pretty smooth. Do you spend much time sanding the crevices and corners at all?

Hi Guys.
Thanks Savagedaddy. I will have a lot of free time to carve this weekend,
will get some progress pics up over the next few days. Appreciate your
comments on the totem.
Hey Big T, also thanks on behalf of the totem. I don't know if you saw the
outdoor pic of the totem, but I spent way too much time sanding, and it was
really difficult. I had some crevices that were really tough and I just
gave up, but I would say 90 per cent of the whole project is sanded smooth.
And Gap my ole' coontiki buddy, nice to have you around and posting again.
I will get some weekend pics of the wood piles. The "backyard" project has
taken on a life of its own. It's a little over an acre that was insanely
overgrown with brush and crappy trees, not to mention the 20 or so trees
that got knocked down in the storm last month. Stay tuned.
