Conga,

Looking good! I'm glad you are enjoying this guy and letting him tell you where to go and what to do. It's easier that way. If you had to plan this all out it would be too much like work! Just let him do all the work and you just cut where he tells you to. It works for me.....

Beautiful stuff man.

-Gman

alright....I finally busted away from the carving after three hours of exploration and another
half hour gazing at it....communicating...and all of this without intoxicants.
Thanks to all.
Finky...the basswood is wonderful to work with...but...occasionally crumbles at fine detail points...
you would have to ask a real expert but I think it might be really tough to hold detail on the
pendant size stuff.
Kingsteidye and P Drake...thanks for stopping in to take a look....I might cut back on tennis but
if I spend any more time with this guy I could wind up divorced. Actually my better half is
very supportive of what's going in the garage...and she knows I'm obsessive/compulsive.
Thanks TikiGAP...you handed me my first mai tai at CoonTiki...I'll always remember you for that!
and Ben...Johnny and GMan...many thanks...you have always been very supportive of my odd-ball stuff...
I want you to be proud of ole' Conga on this one!
You understand how it works GMan...this ain't workin'.
This has been a long process and I really appreciate all the "sugar coated" comments on this
feller...first post was April 22 and 28 pics later I still have a hell of a long way to go.

Sanding and more sanding this week....but a little update on some detail work...this first one
gives you an idea of the nice shadows that will be created by tiki room lighting...but I can't
really photograph that cuz of my cheep camera



Thank you.
Everyone is posting such great work....it's an exciting time around here.

Conga, it looks like you have been taking Going Overboard lessons from someone!! This guy is getting better and better every day. Every update I say to myself, "How much more can he DO to this thing" and then you comew along the next day and blow me away again. Very Nice.

WOW Conga! I don't know how you're doing it! I'd have broken him a dozen times by now!

That is AND will be an amazing carving!!

He is finishing off very well, the detail cuts enhance it. Thanks for the close ups.

That's lookin mighty fine there, Conga. You can see a lot of heart and soul going into this one. Don't rush because of us, just continue doing what you're doing because it's obvious you're enjoying it.
