thanks everyone...having a lot of fun up here in the Northwoods.
PDrake...this one...like my others...will find a home in the Congatiki Lounge where it
will get frequent visitors...but not true tikiphiles. My best friend is a chiropractor so
it will get a little time in his office...where a lot of people will see it. Overall plan
with all of this stuff is to enjoy what i create...and perhaps...to take some down to
Chicago next summer (assuming there will be another event) to take a hand at vending.
Some progess


thanks again for following this post...your comments are the motivation for this one as the
hours continue to pile up.

Dang Conga, how many hours do you have in sanding alone? It's so smooth. Keep going. : )

Hey Conga - thanks for the other eye view!

That sure is a nice piece of wood! Wisconsin Basswood huh? Did you hunt that one down in the woods or can you buy them that size? Nice going man!

thanks everyone.....
McTiki....you are right...lotsa work sanding...over three hours last night just working on
the carvings' right eye and cheek....it will take another couple hours just to do the
headdress on that side of the face....

TikiGAP...The basswood is great...I have a great supply from my boss who built a house out of
basswood logs and is now working on his garage....but I bought this piece and another one from
a local sawmill....$30.00 for two 8 foot-plus half logs...

I feel like this is my "Sistine Chapel"....it's challenging to fight the feeling to get done
soon....this will take me several more weeks......stay tuned.

The "Sistine Chapel" is looking wonderful. How are you doing that detail with a hook blade?

Basswood is like mana from heaven compared to most anything else. That tiki is already a keeper, Conga...one of the most interesting things going on around here right now. You're up in Leroy Schmaltz territory with that one.

Mahalo Johnny and Basement
All the design cuts are with the hook knife...at least one of the three different blades i
picked up at Coontiki....
Wow BK...not sure if i warrant that comparison...but I REALLY appreciate it. Working
really hard this weekend...next progress pics will show some of what i'm up to!

fun now....here's a few update pics...including one of yours truly...still red-faced from playing
tennis on our hottest day of the year


and finally starting to clean-up the tiki on the bottom

Wow Conga, that is looking truely wonderful, filled with detail from head to toe(and head to chin)! Do you think the basswood would be nice to carve on a small pendant sized scale?
