Much thanks to kind friends TikiG, Johnny, LakeS, Clarita,
Hodad, TikiGodz and Seeks. This was a fun one, based on a big-white-
eyed PNG mask that I stumbled upon in research.

And Clarita, I love you, your comments alone would keep me carving away:-)
Anytime I can make you smile is a good day.

Thanks Surfintiki, appreciate your kind words.

Been pretty quiet up here in northern Wisconsin, other than banging on
drums..."dirty hippie" style as Lucas Vigor would say. The un-mentionable
happened...I ran out of wood.

That is only a temporary set-back however, and Conga will be back to slinging
chisels very soon.

Peace out everyone!

Hello everyone from the northwoods. Finally got my hands on some
nice wood. Got a chunk of cherry from a friend and after a couple
weeks of squinting I decided to turn it into something. This is
tiki inspired and i call it "Longears."



The other recent project is my first real "relief carving." This one
is Blasters inspired...."American Music."

Gonna get a fresh supply of wood soon for fall carvings....I am
hoping to get something BIG.
Peace to all...especially GMan.

thanks Ben.....I learned it from YOU of course. Just basic implementation of
hook knife skills applied to a flat surface. Gotta looooong way to go before I
can call myself a relief carver. But I HAVE carved some tikis....so that's a relief!

GMan...thanks for stopping by.....don't loose too much weight or you will fade away
into the night!

Nice wood conga. Did you find that the moai was a tough carve?

Great start on the relief carving Conga! Looks like you really managed to get a lot of depth in there. I like the long ear too. Really cool. Here's hoping you find some new logs soon!

Hey thanks everyone.
Jungle Trader---a lot tougher to dig into than my old standby basswood,
but still not too bad.
Amate---keep smiling my friend---makes it all worthwhile on this end.
BigT---thanks for the props on the relief carv---I have a long way to go but it's
a start. Really fun to achieve some depth in an inch of wood.
and Grand Poobah---just finished a medium stain on "longears"---really
makes the grain pop. Hoping--if all goes well---to post a couple of finished
pics tonight.

Here we are...



Originally planned much more detail for this guy, but I heard
a soft voice telling me to "stop".
I have a few ideas to incorporate the carving into a larger
piece of wall art. We'll see
