Thanks Ben, where did I come up with the headdress and mouth?

Well, you know I spend a lot of time studying carvings, and
there used to be a guy who carved pelicans and really fancy tikis.
I think he carved a bunch of them for a hotel in Vegas, I think it might
have been Holiday Inn

I have always considered him the best tiki carver and I'm just trying to follow
his big footsteps, do you know the guy I'm thinking of?

Thanks Seeksurf, no bear this time. Gonna stick with this one until he
turns into a tiki.
Hey Ben, he is a "biter" and he takes a pretty big bite too

I had my arm reattached and went back to work, making some progress but
this one is gonna take a little time



Happy Fourth!

Hi Conga, it has been a while since my last posting here. But Im checking from time to time. Must say, you really defined a unique "Conga-Style". It is always nice to see all the progress stuff and also the results.
The new project is going to be great. The headress is looking like a crown of bones already. I can see, why certain guys are afraid of him anyway.

Thanks for popping in Lake, Benz and Tok Tok. Always appreciate a little push
when digging into the basswood. I have to be very very careful now cuz I have been
digging deep into the headdress. If this sucker ever tips over...he's gonna
break into a billion pieces. Some areas of the fancy headdress are less than a
quarter inch thick....Conga better be careful

Tok...thanks for your comments on the "Conga style." All I'm trying to do is
create stuff that's a little different...I appreciate the fact that you've visited
over the years and come back now and then.

Don't expect this one to be finished any time soon....it might be my last tiki for
a while so I don't want to cut any corners. My daughter wants me to carve our
dog...that looks like my next project.

wow conga,

your "biter" sure looks like a mean sob. the headdress looks like he ripped the backbone off of some poor unfortunate souls and plopped it ceremoniously on his head. now if he get too unruly to handle you can always send him my way for punishment. great looking piece and great work.

Alrighty then. Over the weekend I found a little time to poke around
the back yard to select a new chunk of carving wood

Not much to choose from but I did select a nice chunk of basswood



Not much to choose from... hahahaha! You are funny guy! (or *extremely* picky)
