Great stuff Conga. This last guy really pushed your skillz by forcing you to include all the movement and turns. Good show!

I think we could sell the rights to a movie where all your guys come to life at the Conga Lounge from 12:00 am until last call. Maybe?

Many thanks Gman, Johnny and Benz, if I can get your attention then I guess I
succeeded.

Hey Gman, I like that movie idea. How about "Night Of The Living Tiki"...
"Tiki Roadhouse"....I'll work on some other working titles. You could co-star as
a croc hunter....Johnny could do the soundtrack with one of his giant drums....
I could get tied up....terrorized...and drugged with RUM. And then Benzart could be
the sheriff who saves me.

And then I woke up....

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





this carving is too cool!
and hi Petri I'm sorry I've called you a he

Hey thanks for visiting Seeksurf, Clarita and Akuae, always appreciate
your kind comments.

Best wishes to all for the new year, hoping it brings you peace, joy and
lotsa cool carvings for me to drool over.
Here's the latest...smaller than my usual stuff...

I have a couple of other things I need to finish up...and a really
nice 6-foot half log in my basement...time to hunker down for another
three months (ha ha...more like five!) of winter.

Nice work Conga!
A contented little fellow.

He looks cold though... get him a jacket and hat.

5 months of Winter is right. What happened to the mild El Nino Winter we were supposed to have?
Looks like they got the forecast wrong again.

Stay warm, and keep carving!

Conga, Excellent way to ring in the new year. This guy is really cool and I'm sure has already staked out a great spot in the Conga lounge.
Pretty soon you're gonna have to start getting rid of some of your tikis Or build a Bigger Conga Lounge??
Happy New Year Conga.

Thanks Amate, you really know how to pump a guy up for the new year.
I'm glad that the Conga-carves have found a spot in your heart:-)

Yea Benz, getting a pretty big collection of tikis and near-tikis around
here. Several that have found homes outside the conga lounge,
but this is pretty much "bear and eagle" territory.

Not sure what I'm gonna do next, trying to finish up the mountain-top
tiki hut carving that I posted several weeks ago.

Thanks all for looking.

Yeah! He looks positively Primitive!!! Nice choppin'! I like his demeanor, like he's dreaming of a nice cannibalistic meal!

Hey thanks Surfin'...."positively primitive" is exactly what I was shooting
for! Usually I try to sand until the carving is smooth as a baby butt.
I thought this one looked okay with a little less effort
thanks for visiting!
