Hey Ben, you think he's gaudy now, wait till to see the Chief with painted
feathers!

And thanks Jungle Trader, I had to do a couple of lounge pics to maintain the
"tiki" element, just so I don't get banished off to one of the back pages.
At least the Indian has a Benzart pout

Ever since I picked up chizels I wanted to attempt a cigar store figure,
so I finally got that out of the way.

Now....just getting started on another small "mountain top tiki hut" project...
and more fun and/or wierd projects in the works....gotta think tiki tiki tiki.

Love the Indian! Been thinking of doing one myself. That one looks like it was a lot of work. Outstanding job! Love how you staged him with tiki stuff in the background. That means you can post more pics, right?

Hello friends, and thanks Seeksurf and BigT. I was holding out on showing
the Chief, since it would be a stretch to call it "tiki carving." Now
I feel secure in showing him off and introducing to the masses...
"The Last Of The Moaihicans."



As you can see, we have a couple of things in the works at the Conga
Lounge, a png influenced figure and another mountain top tiki hut.
Also still have a few finishing touches for the Moaihican. Thanks for
peeping in.

Hey...thanks to all of you for giving such a nice, warm welcome to a somewhat non-tiki
Cigar Store Indian. The Chief just fired up the peace pipe and it's heading your way.

Andy--thanks for reviewing my previous carvings--the two big ones really were a lot of work.
Seeks--Whenever I can impress you--I'm happy.
Amate--I'll do my very best to keep you smiling--thanks.
MadDog--great idea with the mohawk--perhaps my next cigar store tiki.
and Clarita--what can I say--you've been a longtime supporter--many thanks.

NEW TIKI STUFF--coming soon!!!

Nice work Conga. I have been researching Cigar store Indians for the last 6 months or so. I have a good friend who asked me to carve one for him. Now I have another pic for my file. Keep up the good work.

Thanks Tikimecula!
I also studied the cigar store figures for a LOOOOONG time before dipping
chisel into wood.
Lemme say this...just based on your weapons...when you finally do carve your
C-S-I it will be the best one that was ever made.
Thanks again.

Hey everyone, happy Memorial Day! Nice stuff being posted over here
lately, so I thought it was time to throw something new into the mix.
Here are a couple of unfinished shots...he sorta reminds me of somebody from
the Addams Family or the Munsters.



Have a nice holiday!

Nice conga. He looks like Joe Pesci also in my mind.
