Headdress to the moon, check.
Is he eating peanut butter?
Is that why his tong is stuck to the
roof of his mouth?

I am sorta liking the "rough and tumble" look that seems to be developing,
like the carving has been kicked around the neighborhood for a couple
hundred years.



Agreed!!! Great looking carving - he looks either like he was carved from a piece of driftwood or WAS a driftwood carving for years!! Loving this one Conga!!!

Wow, it seems like it takes me forever to get a carving finished.
Thanks for the remarks hang10, polynesiac, Atomic Mess and Will,
I'm continuing to work this guy to the best finish possible, with a nod
to the "roughed up" idea. So far I have a couple of coats of a dark stain
that I sanded down, topped off with a lighter oak stain, which I may
continue to sand.
And Will, yea the sticky tongue is either peanut butter or maple syrup

Not quite finished but here are a few fun progress pics...Thanks for all
the motivation to keep going on these time consuming projects.

Time for a couple of shadow tests...

Yeah, holidays are swell. But I'm usually too busy "holidaying" to get any carving in. This guy is KILLER by the way!

There's a time to carve and then there's Miller time. I find the best shadow testing happens during the later.
Lookin' good!

And then there's "carving with Miller Time"....a wonderful pairing of
two great things...like tikis and exotica.....tikis and rockabilly....you
know
Thanks guys...appreciate the kind remarks. I think I am getting
obsessive/compulsive with my sanding. I thought this fella was just
about finished and I decided to re-sand the entire body.
In one sense I want it to look old and primitive, in another sense
I strive for perfection. Please help me.

They say that nobody is perfect. Then they tell you practice makes perfect. I wish they'd make up their minds. (Winston Churchill)

leave it imperfect, that's your personality coming through, if you over finish it it'll have no soul. my two cents ;]

Thanks Amate and Atomic Mess, "imperfection" certainly fits my personality, so you are right in that regard A-Mess:-)
I'm gonna make sure that I don't work the soul out of the carving--I agree with you on that!
