Many thanks GMan, Duddy, Buzzy, Ben and Johnny. I appreciate your feedback on the "chiseled"
Tiki face, I have a small rounded gouge that works great for that. Not sure I can pull it off
on the bird-face due to the large flat areas, and I think I'm going for a sanded and painted
look on the back side figure. Always fun to experiment and look for something new...Still evolving.
Buzzy and GMan...he's 40 inches tall but real thick...I can't believe how heavy it is.

Conga,

Don't worry about the bird face and the flats. You will pull it off and it will RAWK like all your other chops - pure Conga all the way. Please don't keep us waiting for new pics of this heavy weight. I need my Conga fix....please?

Many thanks McTiki and GMan...you are great motivators.
And GMan...thanks for pushing me to do a better job...your confidence
propelled me into a few hours of little chizzlin' last night and the
bird is looking sweet...if I do say so myself. Pics soon!

The spirits are coming out of the wood...should be satisfied to get 'er stained up pretty soon.

Good job in that Wonderful Wisconsin Winter Whittling Weather. How was today?


Your chisel marks are really adding character to that piece.

Mahalo to all and thanks for looking.
Appreciate the compliments Duddy, good to hear from someone farther north than me.
Johnny...I also like the look of the chisel marks...kinda swiped that idea from a recent
post by TikiBeat...I gotta get better at it cuz things get messy on the flatter surfaces but
I planned on leaving the bird beak smooth anyway. Good news...another 8-12 of snow coming
by the weekend!
Thanks Ben...getting a little of that "NW Coast totem" look is sorta fun on this one but
my next several projects will be all TIKI...I either have to go TIKI or start my own forum called
"totem central".
Gonna finish up some hook knife work tonight and then finish this one.

I was just checking out that top pic and was like sweet a girl tiki, don't see too many of them. Oh, nevermind. My mind got the best of me, Sweet tiki and you wouldn't catch me out in the snow like that.

Hey Teakey...thanks for visiting...and I can see the girl tiki too if I squint a little. And
the beak can be a bikini bottom...and...nevermind...I'm getting carried away too!
Actually i took the snow pics just to create a little weather-jealousy in the florida and
california carvers. I was only outside for about 15 minutes using a grinder to smooth the
areas between the carvings...everything else was done indoors.

Hey Conga- The Tiki Totem looking really good! Judging from this one and your previous carving, (the Quad Dude) I would say that you've got quite a unique and original spin on your subject matter.

Try not to freeze out there.
