Thanks Ben and PDrake...

Ya know, Conga saw a hat on his head. I was originally thinking it was a headband and hair, but I think I like your observation the best: It looks like a headband and brains!

For those who may have seen the original post, I said he was done. He's not.
Here's the picture of him from the original post.


He's different now, and I'll post an update as soon as the polyurinate is dry.

Here it is at the Waterfall by the pool. All done now... notice the tiki torch... I moved the incense to the sides, and hollowed out a place for the torch, away from his face. Gotta use clean lamp oil in that torch!

The night shot with the tiki is killer.

Hey JP! Those bats are so cool - 'm going to place an order for one today! 18 inches wide? He's BIG!

How cool is that?

Thanks a lot for the link!

My "carver's cramp" is over.

I was 'commissioned' to make another bat tiki - this one has a cape. He's walnut, and he's about 7.5 inches from wingtip to wingtip.

Hey tikigap- That bat is kitschy and cool! It reminds me of the kind of bat when Grandpa Munster turns into a bat on the Munsters.

Ok, I had to try Hanford's new "upload a photo" procedure.

Here's the latest hack job on a piece of walnut firewood I'm working on:



It is taking too long a time and it needs obviously lots of work, but at least I'm still carving

Thanks for checkin' it out Conga!

That 'bottle' will go away soon. I'll replace it with a rock hammer for a geologist friend of mine.

Thanks again!

I removed the bottle, and instead of a rock hammer, he'll be holding a rock.
In this case, a geode. I still have the eyes and legs to do,
as well as a lot of sanding.
