Very nice effect that really enhances the carving, so where did you drill the hole to put the lighting through? Any way to hide more of the light rope there? Or carve 5-6 more tikis just like it and have them standing side by side with the light rope filling all the bowls.

Hey thanks guys.
Johnny...I stuck the rope lighting through one of the arm underarm
cut-throughs....I think I should be able to find a shorter rope.
And I have considered the idea of carving a couple of twins so they
could share the rope lighting.
Gonna be carving again soon, just not sure what direction things will
go.

Nice concept Conga, I really like it! You're always coming up with neat new things and thinking outside of the box.

Rope light comes in all different lengths now, maybe try a 2 footer plugged into an extension cord?

Its a really moving piece, again, nice work.

Summer in Wisconsin is for the birds.


This will either be a bird of paradise (tiki connection) or one
of the guys from heckel and jeckel (hot rod connection)
I can't miss.

Hey crazy old man, the Lighting on the "Wise Man" is Awesome, great idea and the Paradise bird will feel right at home in your paradise.
For youe lighting you may like the light I used in the box that was just finished, About 7$ from Walmart and is called "Under-counter lighting" and has a pass through plug so you can attach several in a line. The led's are Very bright and run Cool, Not as cool as you however!
We need to get together one of these days!

Thanks Seeksurf, he does have a sharp little pekker. This will be a
png-styled bird of paradise, possible perched on a small drum. He looks a
lot better now than he did a few days ago;-)
Thanks for the lighting tip Ben, I am still searching for a permanent
solution, as opposed to the larger-than-needed rope lighting. I looked
around here at all the common spots and I still can't find a rope light
shorter than 3 feet. My wife wants be to carve two more similar figures
and standing them side-by-side, to use up the extra lights. Sounds like
a lotta work to me.
Lakesurfer and Johnny, thanks for visiting. The word is "bird."
You guys are all posting some inspiring stuff, and I really gotta kick into
high gear. I have a carving demo in three weeks (thanks for re-posting
the trike picture, Ben) and I need to get pushing. I plan on having
several things in various stages, perhaps including a tiki.

Hi kids. Got a few things in the works (not quite like Johnny P's pile
of stuff) and made a little progress with Birdy.


Hope you are all enjoying a great weekend. I get a lot of time for
carving and I also get to live up to my name and bang some congas with
a local blues band tonight. Yahoo.

Thanks Ben, Bird of Paradise will be taking flight pretty soon!
Trying to keep up with the Joneses (and Johnny P) with multiple
projects, this is another "Conga Modern" in the works.

This is a chunk of good ole' Wisconsin pine from the storm clearing
project in earlier posts. Nice to work with...and a virtually unlimited
supply.
