many thanks McTiki, GMan and Ben! Nicer weather has returned to northern Wisconsin following some
really cold and snowy days. Northwoods News Update, my boss dropped off several nice chunks of
basswood

and I spent some time working on the back of serpentiki's head

and I bought a couple of 8 foot half-logs of butternut. Wonderful wood, love the dark look and
I found a natural gaping mouth I decided to use. This is kinda weird (surprise surprise)with a
bit of an angular look to some of the cuts

So that's all for now. Peace and love and thanks for looking!

Boy, What a head of hair for a bunch of snakes, Cool. I Love the way your ming speaks.
Watch that mouth hole for bee's. They are sitting in there waiting for when you least expect it and then they will fly out ant sting you on the butt as you are running away, Just like in the cartoons. ( It IS Sunday right? as in Sunday Paper with full color comic's section??)

I Swear the bag is empty.I think Gman foun it and poured out the contents .
Into his own bag.

Nice update conga, everything looks wicked...the hair, the knotty mouth and the new PNG figure...I've been wanting to tackle one of those guys myself for ages. They kinda remind me of the NZ manaia with their big beaks.

Alright! Nice way to place the mouth. The serpent tiki is coming along. The spirit figure is great looking. Looks like you have been very busy this weekend.

Thanks guys, the last two are in the rough stages and i appreciate your comments.
Paipo, I am always drawn to the beak figures,I think they bring a very exotic vibe into the
tiki scene. I love your carving thread and congrats on the new member of the family.
Johnny, was a great weekend over here, still hoping to get another six weeks before the snow
stays. I need at least another couple of weeks to finish the serpentiki. Getting a clean look
on the snake coils is much tougher than I tought it would be.

WOW, how do you get your boss to work like that for YOU ?
I would say you must be selling a lot of cars for him but how can you when you are doing so much carving? Conga has secret powers !!!

hello my chizzlin' friends!
The onset of Winter (and some very early snow) have me working like a badger on stuff I can do outdoors.
I know it's pretty foolish to kick-off a new one with a few "starters" already waiting for attention,
but what the heck, I wanted to do a tiki!


He's a five footer and he makes me jealous.

What's wrong with starting several projects? A little ADD can't hurt as long as you keep turning out the great stuff.

Do my eyes deceive me? A "standard" tiki from the Conga? I dunno....

Seriously, he looks great. He looks really "meaty" Nice carve!

I'm loving your beaked figure too. Conga rawks!

OK, C'mon, Fess up, who did you pay to carve this guy for you Conga?? Surely it wasn't you, was It? Whoever did it deserves a Lot of praise(and I'm sure the Mrs tiki is smiling Big time too!) he is an Excellent tiki.
Excellent work Conga, we Know it was you, we knew it all along.
