Getting close...I'm calling him "The Wise Man."


Sorry 'bout the ugly shoe GMan, my wife insists that I thrown them
in the garbage. They were in the garbage two years ago but I pulled 'em
out.

Smooth, smooth Basswood creations Conga!

This guy is cool, he's got a bowl of Kava waiting for his guests!

All kinds of tikis hiding out in your yard, a very aged and wise Tangaroa just to the right.


You should see my carving shoes... should have gone in the trash years ago!

I think since we've shown workspaces, we should show carving clothing next.

Thanks Lake, nice to know that other peeps have crappy shoes for carving
too:-)
We could have quite a fashion thread if we post our carving get-ups. I
generally just carve in shorts and a t shirt, and of course the shoes. But
when I use the grinder I look like I'm scouting for toxic waste.
Little update--mood lighting

Looks awesome so far!

No, we don't want to have an anti-fashion contest, lol. I think we all have an old pair of old shoes like that. Must be a guy thing. I call em my "yard shoes". My oldest, ratty-est, sneakers worn for mowing the lawn, working in the garage, carving, etc.

So....for you guys who like to see logs...a few shots from the Northern
Wisconsin jungle...mostly the result of the high winds about four weeks ago..


Several log piles are visible in the top two pics, they are not different
angles of the same pile and there are probably six more comparable piles
spread out in here

And then this fella pops up again

A little stream runs through the property in the "jungle area" and I wanted
to take some pics (I call it my little Sepik River) but the Wisconsin state
bird...Mosquito...was out in force tonight.
Hope ya all had a great weekend..thanks for stopping in.

Sweet. Back in the South Seas theme! I bet it took a while to hollow out that bowl. With that stack of logs you'll be carving for years.

Experimentation time in the Northwoods!
First of all, thanks a lot Benz, GMan, Mooney, Johnny, Seeksurf, and
Surfintiki, always honored to have you guys stopping over at Congas.
I've had a couple of cocktails and I'm getting sentimental and all,
but it means a lot to get the attention of you guys.
Anyhoo....
This latest guy was supposed to be a Conga version of the "Pearl of
Wisdom" so I need some light eminating from the bowl. Only problem is
that I did the carving before I started looking for a light source...so
it's hard to find anything that works.
So...one idea is just putting some flowers in the bowl...

The other idea is to use rope lighting covered by the flowers...


I need to find a way to hide the unnecessary rope lighting, we'll see what
happens.
Thanks again, I must head back to the laboratory!
