Love the guitar player, now finish the band? The Moai Head is Beautiful and that grain is Awesome, especially after the finish. Excellent stuff from that up north place.

Right on Conga!

I always love the variety and creativity of work coming from your neck of the woods!

Can you feel it? The seasons are starting to change. What a great summer though, and here's to hoping the 'Ol Man stays away a little longer this fall!

Keep up the good work my fellow Dairylander!

The bigger pic really shows off the finish a lot better. It's like glass! Is that a wax finish?

Hello friends....

Glad you like the "guitar" carving Ben....full band huh? Well it's only a
four-piece so that might be a possibility. Going to start another relief
carving tonight, something much more "tiki" related. Hope to have something
to show by the end of the week.

Thanks Lakesurfer! You are definitely the "lead man" in the Wisconsin
tiki world, and your compliments are always appreciated. By the way, I saw
the "Foundation Bar" article on the Journal-Sentinel website, your outrigger
of Marqs was the first thing I noticed. Been pretty steamy up here the last
few weeks so I'm welcoming fall, beautiful time of the year up here.

BigT....good eye....I did use a furniture wax on the small Moai. Gives it a
classy sheen without using a poly coat. Should be able to get more of the
cherry wood....hoping I can land a nice big chunk.

Thanks a lot Finky...and Creative Chimp (Alice Cooper, huh? I always thought she looked like
Frank Zappa.)
Well....the big news up here is FOOTBALL but I have had a little time to whittle out a mask
while I wait for BIG WOOD.
a few progress pics for your perusal



Not sure where this is going, but it's always fun to be chizzlin'.
Have a great sunday...and.....GO COLTS!

Yo, Conga, I Loved how this guy turned out and I'm Happy you didn't overload him with details and the finish is Supurb.


Alos I'm liking your new guy and having fun trying to figure out how many eyes he has?

Thanks Benz, Clarita and Amate, and anyone else who may have popped in over here.
Well, still alive up here, but also still hunting for big wood.

I did finish up this little wall-hangy thing



It's made from one-half of an 18 inch chunk of basswood that was splitting,
the little feller on the right is a progress pic of the other chunk...


I'm also attempting another relief carving, but I chucked it aside for a few weeks


I love fall in Wisconsin, but I don't have much time for evening carving anymore,
gets dark too early. So I'm starting to mess-up the Conga Lounge


And that's about it for now, thanks for checking in. What have you
all been up to?

I like the two tone stain. When I first saw the unfinished photos, he looked chrome. Is the dark stain English Chestnut?
