Conga, I'm looking forward to Ramu. Now I've gotta go look him up & see what he's all about. Really love watching these things evolve! Show us the Conga voodoo!

From carvers block to that in about a week! Seems like a flash of inspiration and motivation hit like lightning. It is great to see different styles of tikis. I like the way the tail wraps around. Keep us posted!

Conga,

I did a bit of a search on Ramu. Looks like you are on to another far out piece. You have this one blocked out real nice. I'm anticipating a real winner here.

Mahalo friends AA...Johnny and GMan....Ramu has put the "Conga Voodoo" on me cuz I started
another carving before I finished him...this is loosely based on something that one of our
"old masters" did for a certain hotel...hope you like it....

Conga,

Do that Voodoo that you do! That new guy looks very cool. Is that designed after one of Benz pieces? I'm still bugging out over Ramu. That is REALLY going to be wild. I thinks I needs one!

I guess your carving block is officially over. Now you are knocking them out like nothing. Looks great! Keep posting, At this rate, I'll guess we'll see another one tomorrow.

Appreciate the nice words RT....GMan and Johnny....yea...I guess the carvers' block is
over...and while I don't carve while sleeping...it seems that I wake up and go back to sleep
wondering how to achieve the desired effect...I am sure it is some form of obsessive/compulsive
disorder. This latest guy is based in part on several of Ben's tropicana tikis. Seems I
have spent hours revisiting that thread...then once I obtained Ben's blessings...I just
went full steam ahead. I just love the expressions on those guys and I hope mine will
capture some of that feeling...a pleasant sort of attitude. Thanks again...and by the
way GMan...Ramu has pushed his way back into the carving bench.
