Many thanks for all the kind words, Seeksurf, KohalaKruzer,
Laojia and Ben. This is my standard carve material up here in
Wisconsin, good ole' badger state basswood. Carves beautifully
but is generally absent of nice grain, except in this case:-)


I will get some new full body pics up real soon, I hope you like
him all finished up. It was my original intention to put a lot
of color on the face but I am sticking with a more simple look to
show off the grain. Other embelishments are planned.

The carving is based on a museum photo of some PNG stuff, special
thanks to Lakesurfer.

Very nice Conga!

Look forward to the other pics!

Glad you could find some inspiration in those photos... if you ever make it down here you should definately see the collection in person.

Winter is back with a vengeance! Hope you are staying warm up there!

Thanks Lake. Yes, spring is about to bust through up here. We
just had ice and frigid for the last couple of days, but we are
all looking for change that we can believe in.
Here are some update pics on my mudman. He is not finished,
but it will take a few weeks until I complete the final embelishment.
So for now, another 30 inches of conga stuff.





Hope you likee!

Beautiful mirror finish on that guy, Conga!

And yes, a lucky piece of basswood with some grain in it.

We've hit the bottom today at 15 degrees, but things are looking like 50's next week!

Spring arriving finally!

Many thanks 4WD, Daddy, AlohaS, Lakesurfer and Clarita! I thought
I might have a keeper here but you don't really know until your
contemporaries see it. Thank you all for validating my decision to
"keep it simple." I appreciate your comments and your own work that
keeps this place interesting.
And for Big Daddy, it's basswood. Very plentiful up here in Wisconsin,
wonderful to carve, but this one has much nicer grain than normal.
Lucky I guess

WOW, Conga, No Wonder your Mud Man is so Happy, He's got GRAIN! Where did you find that one? Excellent work as usual there Mister, Can't wait to see the weather up there allow you to work at full speed. Don't forget, you can still come down here to warm up any time. We have Palm tree shade with your name on it and of course some toolz to use under the shade too.

This guy came out great! what a strong message i get from him.
You need to put your carving at the tribal counsel on Survivor
they would fit in so well.
