Great stuff Conga! I can't believe how short of a time it takes for you to make good looking faces. It takes me two weeks to get that far on a piece of wood I can fit in the palm of my hand. Can't wait to see more pics of this one!

Thanks for the painting Conga, we all love it here and it will soon adorn the walls of the new tiki bar!

Great tikis & great progress on that log. Much aloha to your future cuts into it.




Why is it near impossible to get a good basswood log in Chicago?

Looks good, Conga! I've heard that Basswood is about the easiest stuff around to carve. We don't have Basswood trees around here that I know of, but I've seen chunks of it for sale at Rockler's. Nice score on the logs.

thanks ManoKoa and A-A...yes the basswood is really nice
for carving...and my supplier has a lot of logs left...
he just finished building a garage out of basswood logs...
the best part is...they're not only big..but also de-barked and ready to go. Here's a little update...NewTiki
has been working out

rush...had to make a quick stop on the highway and
dumped it when i went from pavement to the gravel!
no serious injuries but muscle spasms in the back and
ribs that will slow work on the latest tiki. please
offer prayers of thanks that congatiki lives on to finish
tiki carvings and continue drumming.

Take it easy Conga. These tikis can't carve themselves. They need you.
