Conga - this one is INSANE. As a matter of fact, all your carvings are INSANE. I imagine that if William S Burroughs carved tikis his inspiration would be PNG and they would look very much like the stuff you're pumping out. YOu're getting damn good at this.

So this thing is like 8feet tall, right? that's crazy. You're crazy. Crazy cool, that is!

I'm looking forward to seeing this one done and next to your other carvings!

Thanks much Polynesiac...I consider the Burroughs reference to be an extreme compliment...
I do have an affinity for Burroughs/Ginsberg/Kerouac and the whole Beatnik thing...My percussion
group actually recorded a couple of tunes with me reciting paragraphs from "On The Road"...to
show how messed up I am. You gave me another idea...maybe I should change my name to CrazyConga!

Anyhooo...sorry to ramble....left work early to suck a late afternoon mai tai...updates on
my latest effort are pretty boring cuz I am spending so much time on hidden detail and sanding
work...but here are the...drumroll...BENZTOES

hi everyone...hope ya all had a nice day whittlin'. I apologize for this becoming such a long
post for a single project...but I thought I would throw up a coupla pics of the PNG/Tiki 8 footer.
Did tons of sanding today and finally completed the final "dig through" at each shoulder.



This week I will start "hook-knifing" the decorations on the face...pole and headdress...this
will take quite a while...but I hope to have some real progress by the end of next weekend.
Then....clean-up work will start on the lower tiki face...boy....this is turning into a
marathon. Hope it's worth all the effort.

Oh man, is this guy worth it. You have done a lot of clean up and it shows. All those cut outs are a pain, and you can never get a tool in the right angle but you are mastering it. Finished up with a little of BK's secret aging process (I'll have to attend the next event to find out just what that secret is) it'll look like it just came from the PNG men's longhouse to your bar!

thank you my tiki-loving friends....here's a little preview of what's to come

the hook knife is a lot of fun.

I appreciate all the comps on this guy...funny thing tho...and I know it sounds silly...after
a while of carving whatever is in the wood really seems to take over. The spirit in the wood
appreciates the comps too.

Oh it'll be worth the effort! It's fantastic! I really dig the eye detail. Now get off it! Let's see the rest of him! At least the other eye!

I think the hook knife is damn nice too.

Wow Conga, you have really raised the bar. All of you carvers are putting out such good work that it's hard for me motivate myself. Yes that's right, I'm blaming you for my procrastination. This is going to be an amazing piece!
