Lookin' real nice, Conga. You've 'bout got that PNG style nailed down I believe. I'll be keeping an eye out on this cat.

thanks for stopping by Surf'n'Turf, I love the PNG-influenced stuff.
I had to get something new started during football yesterday. My intention was not to
post any pics until I was finished, but I can't stay away. Can ya tell what's going
on here, a snowman tiki perhaps?

Conga, You're such a Tease, How can we tell what is when you still have most of it still covered up? I see a Big Honker nose there, so right below that must be the mouth with a big tongue stickin' out and the Round body below that. The spaces on either side of the noze looks like big triangle eyes, so that all makes it a, a,, umah, Hmmm, I really don't know yet.c'mon, aren'tcha done yet?

Great looking stuff, Conga. Your PNG grasp is amazing. I PM'ed you how to even out the finish tone on the Marq.

thanks Ben...and thanks BK...keeping eyes peeled for the pm!
Ben...you are too funny...after reading your post I thought I might do what you suggested with
my latest piece of fancy firewood. In actuality, it's not a front view, it's a side view.

I have always (well maybe not always...since the book only came out in 2000) been haunted by the
Barney West tikis on pg 247 of "the book." The pic with 5 Barneys all lined up...different heads
but generally similar bodies. So...I am hoping to do mirror-image "back to back" carvings of
Barney-influenced tikis...with two different faces. I thought it might be easier to accomplish
identical legs if I started with a ball...hence the snow-ball look on the bottom. The overall
concept is perhaps a bit much for me to chew off...but chew I must.

On second thought..maybe I'll persue what Ben saw. This will take some time.

I don't know how I missed that PNG bird figure. It's great. I have always liked that figure.

I don't know if the photos are still good, but there was a thread by Swanky (I think) when he visited a house full of PNG carvings and there was a big carving of a bird PNG style on the front porch. I'll try to dig up the thread.

Sorry for not responding earlier. The new one looks to be a different style for you.

JP

Conga,
Looking good, You've kicked out those last two in a hurry. They look smooth as a babies bottom. These look more old school tiki than your other classic Conga style.

Conga where have you been? Have you been slacking or what? All this talk of needing more tiki carvings and where are you? C'mon man!

Just kidding of course I love what you are doing and, man, are you making an epic run at a personal record! How many big carvings have you made in the last few weeks? Five? Six? Holy smoke! Go Conga! The white stuff is coming soon!

-Gman

thanks GMan...not working on any personal quest...just enjoy having a few big projects going at
the same time...you know..various stages of completion just to keep the interest level high.
Not worried about snow yet...been doing a lot of the chizzlin' indoors. Only problem I have
now is tennis elbow...initially caused by tennis...but flogging that big hammer sure doesn't
help. I should do something little...but then I would need new glasses...and how does one ever
match the skills of ALL you teenie weenie carvers...and you cut into stones and shit. WOW.

And thanks to you TikiGap...if you get into wisconsin make plans to slide up north. The
Congatiki lounge is about three and a half hours north of Milwaukee...about three north of
Madison...we roll out the red carpet for tc visitors...just ask Ikitnrev. Now that I think of
it...he's the only TC visitor so far...but we do put on the dog!

Hi..Conga has been taken over by a very angry spirit inside this wood

all original plans are kaput and another tiki is attempting to bust out of the side

we're not sure where this will go from here...
