The hits keep coming, Conga!

Nice wrap on this one... and the bird is a beautiful touch.

Just the hint of color that adds so much to the overall feel.

Carve quick, before you know it the leaves will be falling!

Sad to think it was just yesterday that Spring was starting.

Holy Cow...better catch up with my paperwork
Johnny P, Benz, Freddie from Northern Wisconsin, 8 Foot from Cooktiki,
Laojia, Hilltiki, Big T, Lakesurfer and Tikisbytyler, many many thanks for
your kind compliments.

You are right 8 Foot, the motorcycle has been pretty quiet this summer, I
have a lot more miles on my peddle roadbike than I do the cruiser.

Benz, does this guy look at least a little bit familiar? I once had a famous
tiki carver working on a big Lono for me, but I thought it would be fun to
do one for myself

Lake, have a great time at Oasis, let me know if you need someone to carry your
money satchels.

The Lono is finished...he looks pretty sexy with four coats of tung oil. Waiting
for a nice sunset to show the final pics. Sooooooon.

Great job Conga. Another treasure is born. I'll be watching to see what you decide on creating next. It is gonna keep getting tougher for you to match all the insanity in this thread. Bring it on man.....

Hey....
Appreciate everything...gotta do one more pic when he gets to his final
display spot. He really looks better in person (?)...the sunlight made the
oil finish look more shiny than it really is.

Benzart and Hodad....this one would be pretty hard to wrap-up and ship,
the top is pretty thin and fragile...I will probably have to keep this one:-)

You still remember Mindimbit, Hank? The little bugger really wants to
visit California, you wanna put him up? He likes to shop-tiki and I think your
shop is about the best ever.

Hey Gman. I'm not sure what to do next, I have a really nice long log that
would work great chopped up into several smaller pieces. Sorta thinking of
knocking out a few "tiki modern" style things, but who knows. Stay tuned.

Hell yes! I think he Mindi would look fab in the new gallery. Think you can roll him up in some bubble wrap and jam him in a mailbox? Next Stop California!!!

Yes I think I can do that, it would make Mindy happy. Mindy has
been pretty bored since coming back from my daughters college apartment,
and he needs a change of pace. We'll discuss his rent when he gets there.
