Nice start! Those curled over toes are all the rage now. The subject is a challenging one. Looking forward to seeing the "intricate" stuff you have learned from Coontiki.

Wow...love you guys....now I'm gonna really work hard on this one...so as not to disappoint!!!
Gapper...you'll do fine with big wood...my only pointer is to not get discouraged...it takes a
lot of digging until you see a little personality start to peep through....dug for about an
hour today just to get completely throught the wood between his legs (this is starting to sound
like a porno script)...
thanks Ben...already really liking the hook knife...I even found a way to use that weird one
that I brought to Coontiki...and I'm keeping em SHARP....will get more pics up in a day or two.
Thanks to all...it's your feedback for my crazy stuff that keeps me pushing.

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.




I hate the Packers... problem is my wife love them....

No Packers in my tiki lounge... there might be a throw or blanket in the living room but that's it


Oh.... NICE WORK CONGA! Bigger is better!

Man... I'm wayyyy too busy with tiki stuff to be keeping up with all you guys... gotta get back to work

Conga,
Wow, this is going to be one heck of a carving. I dont know how you are managing all the layers and elements, but keep it up. I'm sure this one is really making you think before you cut...Awesome work.

Holy Cow! Man, you are gonna need to be carful with that sucka now - it looks fragile. But man does it look cool! I checked out some source images and I know what you are up to now. Very neat idea. I'm really going to like watching this one progress. Only, we need action shots of you working on it....any chance ????

Flash photography may drive the carving machine into a frenzy.

Beautiful so far Conga.

Wow Conga, that's lookin' very nice! It's always better and better with you. I'm sure I've asked yo this before, but do you use any power tools or is it all by hand?

Yeah, I was just gonna ask what you're using, tool-wise, on that guy. He's turning out FANTASTIC and F A S T! Two things I can't do!

Aw shucks....you cats are making me blush.....this is less me and more and more the result of
watching Benzart...Basement....Crazy Al and Diablo in action at Coontiki. At this point...all
chisels....mainly cuz I don't have any power tools that I can find after I use them....I think
I have a home handyman version of ADD...the only tools I can ever find are my carving tools...and
now...thanks to Ben...they're sharp. This is a fun carving...and the response from you guys
will definitely make it better in the long run.....thank you all. I spent a lot of time drinking
mai tais and watching Ben and Basement work their detail magic....I can't wait to get to that
point in this carving. Stay tuned.
