Happy New Year from Congaland!

This is a 42 inch abelam figure that is almost finished, just a
few paint touch-ups and some tung oil and he will be ready to sit
in a corner or hang on the wall.

Best wishes to all and keep up the good tiki work!

Many thanks Ben, thanks for bringing "the love." I can always depend
on my ole pal. If people up here stop buying cars I am gonna come down
south and live in your garage, right?
"Abby The Abelam" is finished off with a few baubles for the ears. Peace
and love for the new year.

Many thanks G...whenever I carve I think of three peeps who have
been the most inspirational. I think I will do a bumper sticker...
WWBBKAGMD. What Would Ben, Basement Kahuna and GMan Do
The use of paint is always a bit of a challenge, being careful not
to overdo. This piece simply had to have color. Thanks for peeking in.

Brilliant piece Conga! The color looks good! It is probably hard to decide whether to use more organic earth reds, whites, blacks--or go for the bright polypop colors. I really love the latest!

Happy New Year

Many thanks LLT, Sneakytiki, Johnny and Seeksurf, Abby sends lots of
love for the new year!
So, what to do now? Might have to do something indoors for a while,
if the weatherman is right we are gonna be colder than a well diggers ass
for the next week. We will be lucky to get above zero during the days.
That sounds a bit cool for outdoor carving, but it might be alright for
some extreme skiing, which will make it at least seem a little better.

I do have a new toy to play with. I previously used my angle grinder for
smoothing and final shaping but I picked up a carving disc which I believe
is sorta like a lancelot. I understand they can be a little tricky to
handle, I'll have to be careful!

I got an idea from Buzzy's thread, I am gonna look for a Wisconsin badger
to help with my rough work.

Now if you can only train a group of tiki carving badgers...I think you could take the new gopher tiki carving Sea World show from Buzzy purdy easy. Though a ton meaner, badgers are much, much cuter than gophers!

Great work as always Conga!

Conga, Nice stuff you are making, I want you to Keep making it. PLEASE, get a router speed control and slow down that King Arthur or which ever one it is you have. It will be Way more controllable and you will get more out of it. Keep the guard on it TOO!
