Conga, where have you been? Did that four headed beast get the best of you?

Hi Johnny....I am back into the swing of things. The Quad-Tiki kicked my butt for a while
but I have been back to carving the last week or so. I love my tikis...and I have also been
thinking about Northwest pacific totem poles...so I am doing a little combination of the
two...in a short four footer. Gonna work a couple weeks more before I reveal what I'm
up to...pretty preliminary at this point.
Thanks for wondering!

Thanks GMan...always appreciate your prodding. The tiki face and the NW-style
Eagle are roughed out, but I need to do a great deal of sanding before I get to
pics. I promise, I'll get something up in a few days.
Glad you found a little pleasure in the Mensters cd, it doesn't skip does it?
I sent one to our drummer from Florida and he said it skipped, but I think it's
just his cheap flea market cd player.

Thanks guys, as Lake says, it is starting to act like winter around here now. So much for El Nino.
So in an attempt to appeal to the "Northwoods" sensitivity I am combining a tiki with some
"wildlife," in this case an Eagle. The lower figure is somewhat loosely based on Inuit totems,
i.e. northwest pacific coast stuff. And the "tiki" should keep me from getting bumped over to
the "Beyond" forum, heaven forbid!



This is just a little update to show that I am still digging into basswood. The eagle will be
getting quite a bit of hook-knifing in the eye and mouth...thanks for checking in.

Conga.

Conga Conga.

I was lookin at some coon tiki pictures tonight, with a very tight mai tai in my very tight hands. It inspired me to go hack a log. I did that for a few minutes until I wacked my thumb again. Then I sat down and started lookin' round on TC.

Then I found this post. You. Again. Man!

My words are weak - you just gotta quit whatever job you got, and go pro. Well... more pro than you are

It truly amazes me on how you just keep breaking the ceiling open so us lowly carvers can peek thru. Very nice work as usual! I hope you are makin some jack off those guys.

Ditto what T-gap said, GO PRO, you are just doing too much Awesome stuff not to share it with the world.

Hey Conga, you're Tiki/Totem is looking great. I love the Pac NW totem poles too. The carving style of the Haida Tribe is my fav. I carved one for a knife handle once.

Looking forward to seeing progress pics!
