thanks to all...really appreciate it.
Polynesiac...mahalo for the comps on the cut-throughs...they are a great deal of work since I
only use chisels for rough cutting...but it's all part of the process and I think the openings
seems to "draw you into" the carving.....no great secret on the ideas McTki...study study study...
I spend a great deal of time looking at PNG stuff in books and on the "web"....then I dream a
little...and then this happens....Kapu....keep carving...you're just fine! If I remember correctly
you were the one who "came in from the cold" at Coontiki and shared the worst bed in the world with
me....I always get a chuckle about that.
Anyhoo.....a few updates on the skinny birdman....I did a little burn so I could see better while
doing the detail cuts....the over-burn won't be an issue when I add the stain....



thanks for looking...

NICE conga - this guy is going to fit right in with the rest of wild carvings. That's a cool idea to burn the wood to see the detail better as you carve it.

pretty smart guy, that conga!

MANY MANY THANKS TO ALL....I WAS REALLY HESITANT TO POST THESE 'BURNT' PICS BECAUSE
THE CARVING WILL LOOK SO MUCH BETTER WITH THE STAIN AND CHALK IN THE DETAIL CUTS...I
REALLY APPRECIATE ALL OF YOUR COMMENTS ON MY WACKY SH*T. SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE...I THINK
IT WAS PATTY DUKE WHEN SHE WON THE OSCAR A HUNDRED YEARS AGO....'YOU LIKE ME...YOU REALLY
LIKE ME." MORE UPDATES SOON...LOTTA WORK TO DO.

Wow, Conga! I can't believe you cranked this one out so soon after your last. Your work really is amazing, looking very vintage and yet very original. I can't wait to see the two pieces together.

thanks Johnny and ChiselSlinger....You both nailed it for my inspirational sources....a
combination of the Mai Kai garden tiki (and the Johnny P version from last year)...a
carving from pg 22 of Tiki Magazine number 1 (Bamboo Ben article on Eli Hedley)...and
the "skinny people" carvings that my wife brought back from her Africa travels. I also
review tons of PNG carvings from various websites before I start digging in...many many
beak figures.

Heading up to Wisconsin's Door County Peninsula to spend a few days on an island....
no shops no tourists....be back working on the fourth!

Thanks.

Congatiki - love the bird creature.

I've got a vague memory of some kind of skinny bird lurking over the salad bar at Trader Dick's in Reno. Not sure though. My dining companion requested I stop wondering around gawking at stuff like some hayseed on their first trip to the big city.

Your work evokes an exotic air of mystery.

Ah...thank you KC...."an exotic air of mystery"....I think that is the feeling that I
strive for...perhaps a vintage tiki bar in a strange place that no one ever left....
no one ever photographed....no one ever escaped. Yea...that's the ticket. That tiki bar
in our dreams where all of our tiki fantasies came true.

here's a little holiday update....birdman is on a strict diet to lose a few more pounds
