And in Wisconsin, it is much more likely that a sole tiki mug would be surrounded by not two, but probably many more (dozens?) Green Bay Packer themed drinking glasses.

Congatiki has created a 'Revenge of the Nerds' type painting, where the world has has turned itself over on its head, and it is now the tiki mugs who outnumber the sportsmugs. The Congatiki Lounge might be one of only a handful of places in Wisconsin where this is true in real life.

thanks TFisher and Vern...
Being from Wisconsin...Vern...you know all too well that Packer mugs outnumber tiki mugs
by gigazillions.....except of course....The congatiki lounge....Finkdaddy's Leeward Lounge....
and....I assume a few other places (Lakesurfer?). Appreciate the comments.

well...it's back to digging into wood.....this is the start of an 8 foot half-log...based on a
PNG ancestral figure...he's holding a pole that supports an elaborate ceremonial headdress...it's
my first chance to carve since Coontiki...at completion...I believe a couple of months away...it

will incorporate a great deal of intricate detail using stuff I learnt from our instructors.
at least that's what I hope


GMan and Johnny...you can get back to eating now!

Sweet! Looks a little like Coltrane.

Was sitting on my porch this morning wailing on my new used bongos ($40 LP's scored from the pawn shop) and singing Whitey on the Moon(
http://www.gilscottheron.com/lywhitey.html ) to my unappreciative neighbors and wondered what my percussive pal Conga was up to.

Glad to see you flexing your carving muscles again. Can't wait to see this feller progress!

BTW, UPS will have a hefty package for you soon. Need more of bubble wrap!

Give my love to "Mindi"!

OH Yeah! Classic Conga style! This is gonna be awesome! Hell, it looks awesome already! This was worth the famine. I can't wait to see what you do with this piece. I'm glad I can get back to eating now. I was so weak from starvation that I couldn't carve at all........

Hey Conga Glad to see you getting back to carving. I have been itching to get back outside again to carve again too. Now that the weather has settled into a warmer average temp. I need to get started. I just have been extra busy since Coontiki. I have been working on getting my Benzart sharpening system assembled. Good to see you are inspired to work something LARGE. Great start! PS check you pm's.
Your friend 8FT

big chunk of ole' Wisconsin basswood. making a lot of progress today...will try to post another

Al at Coontiki...getting a lot more confident with the hook knife...which will show up much later

Hey Conga!

I love your painting. Both of the end tikis are sippin' their drinks and staring at the middle guy with the Packer mug like he's crazy, but he's just sitting there completely content no matter what the others think of him.

You don't need me to tell you how great your carvings have become. Now that you've been schooled by the greats, I can't even imagine what you'll be turning out from now on!

Check this out Swanky....I think of this while at work and sleeping...then carve from memory.
As you can tell...I am not attempting to copy this exactly....mainly cuz I couldn't do it if
I wanted to. And mine is gonna have "Benzart toes."

Conga - Long time no see! This will surely be a killer piece. You have a great eye for source ideas. They are always off the beaten path and super interesting to look at. It will be cool to see where you take this one with the final detailing that you mentioned. Great to finally share drinks in TN.

Cheers!
