to the rescue!

I LIKED his old hands, but he's still cool. You have really done a nice job with this.
You can get the hook blades from Warren Cutlery by the gross for 84$ which is Almost 2 for a buck. They also come in 3 thicknesses. I bought the thinnest and most flexible which is Too flimsy, so if you get them go med or thickest. Much better than !.50$ each.

What a punishment, poor birdman. Although it is looking really good especially with the detail on the hands and feet.

Conga,

I can't believe that wood is not cracking or coming apart. Freaking awesome carve! I can only imagine how hard that is to do. I love it. Don't stop!

Very impressive, Mr. Conga! Thin limbs and birdman face make him look very exotic.

Thanks men...
Ben....appreciate the tip on buying bulk...that makes a lot more sense...but I knew the good folks
at Smoky Mountain would get some to me quickly...and...I'm the only guy that didn't get a shirt at
Coontiki so I bought one.
Johnny and Finky...appreciate the comps...this one will get a lot of detail (armbands/wristbands/
belly decorations) to make it look like a cousin to my last 8 footer...
and GMan...I am pretty nervous about this one...I wasn't sure what to do with the two strips next
to the legs...and thought about eliminating them...but then the whole 8 footer would be supported
by ankles that are less than 2x2...spooky stuff. The decorations on the "strips" are also supposed
to tie the two carvings together...could be done next weekend if the final sanding goes well.

Not sure what to do next...probably some more exotic weird shit...seems to fit my personality.

That is some radical cutting. A very unique path you are taking.

thanks Raffer....it is a crazy path that I seem to stumble along....can't seem to help it.
Really impressed with all the recent postings...especially that Crazy Al tiki....I guess he
kinda raised the bar on us again....Well...anyway...here's the latest from up north...finishing
up most of the detail stuff and getting ready to stain....
Here's ole "Lizard Belly"

and some top detail

and a little arm detail


These are final pics before the stain/chalk/aging process...this one will also get spashed with
a little paint on the face and the lizard. Will check in soon. Thanks to all.
It's really frickin' hot up here....high 90s...pretty unusual for the northern range but it
won't last for long....

Conga,

The details you have added look terrific. The small hook details really add to the overall look and that lizard is a great addition! This is a wonderful carve you have going. Keep pushing forward. I can't wait to see him finished up and in all his glory in the Conga Room! But don't rush him; keep going until you are REALLY sure he's done. Sorry I missed this post earlier. Great stuff goin' on here!

-Gman
