``````````````Conga, Something about this feller is really really tugs at your heart strings. Le looks so Lovable but at the same time you feel you should be wary. I really love how you are letting his personality develop how ever it may. The details and carving skills you are showing us are way out there.
Keep it up old man

Nice chops Conga!

I love the direction this guy is going in!

Great depth and details, and I can tell he's just going to get better and better as you go on!


Batten down the hatches... the bottom falls out end of this week!
We've been spoiled all November but I think Old Man Winter is going to win this war eventually.

Good time to crank up the heat and head indoors with him!

Pour yourselves a good stiff drink!

The posing on this guy is out of this world. You can feel the power and tension, as if the image is ready to just stand up right there and then.

Aloha!

Hey guys, Freddie B, Mr. Benz, Lake, Big T, Aweulekuula, and Drasticwagon,
many thanks for visiting and prodding me along. Lotsa great stuff on the
threads right now...inspiring.

Well...another week...another progress update.



Still another week of work on this guy...need to paint the light
part of the eye socket...then I need to rough him up a little before
final finishing. I was him to look like he rolled around in the
bottom of a ship for a couple hundred years.

And....Petri the "wonder dog" wants to say "hi" too

What a personality! Your carvings are so unique and lively that they could be characters on some tiki movie! Maybe about a shipment of tikis that crash lands up north and have to cope with savage winters.........

Many thanks Big T, Ben, and Lakesurfer.
Alright Ben, I'll explain the eye procedure
I found some abalone earrings that I shaped into eyes...and
fixed them into a wood filler base in the eye socket. Then...
the step shown here...I painted the filler black to match the tats....

Will be all done after a couple more coats of tung oil. Final pics
this weekend.
Getting purty cold up here....brrrrrrr.

Yea Freddie, winter has arrived
We got about 12 inches yesterday...our first dump of the year. Spent
almost 6 hours outside yesterday...between snow-blowing at home and plowing
our car lot at work. The first cocktail...and second...and third...went down
real easy last night. So did the eyelids

He's finished off with mahagony and walnut stain...light sanding
