Yeah, Halloween is kind of a tiki-ish thing, huh! Your carvings are looking frightfully good!

Yah, the latest batch of small guys are awesome. My favorite is the one in the middle. Don't know exactly what his expression is, but it's really cool looking.

Anyone want a rootball. All you need is heavy duty trailer and a 1000lb. winch (not talking about a woman). Fortunately I have a connection. These trees were planted a year ago and never grew. They will soon be mulch.

I want a rootball, I'd take the whole pile if I weren't so many states away.

The pile of pendants looks pretty inspired, like you had a burst of creative energy.

My personal schedule keeps m away from carving more than I prefer, but this weekend I finally got some time to myself. So first is wplugger and I taking care of the log pile. He has 2 logs and I now have one of my own (there are still probably 10 logs worth carving. Thanks Will for hookin me up with log transport.



Next comes the project that never got finished. It took awhile to remotivate myself to finish these pieces and I think I'm there. Done carving and sanding waiting for stain - this week. I did some test staining today and need to see how they dry. Enjoy

Wow Will! You have such a BIG log!

Tom - that Trio is great! The expression on the last one is especially impressive, he really does look full and satisfied. Amazing job!

A.S.

The cannibal tikis kick major ass.

Can't wait to see them stained.

Would love to have one of those rootballs here in the yard to work on.
Nice score!

Thanks for all of the response. The trio has been stained and are close to being complete. I put the first coat of Poly on them and it took almost 3 days for it to dry (it was a little damp in South Florida last week). They should be COMPLETED this week!!

While I was waiting for them to dry I started on the next log. A piece of Coconut that has been curing for a few months in the wood shed. I had high hopes for this piece of wood till I started to peel it. Under the bark is a layer of "hair" and the wood is very soft. Sable Palms have the "hair as well, but I wasn't expecting it with the Coconut. I haven't decided if I want to continue with this or not. Anyone have any experience with Coconut?

I spent an hour peeling the log last night with hopes that it would not be a total loss. The bark came off fairly easily and the wood underneath was still a bit damp. So I broke out the chainsaw and cut the log in half. I now have a pair of soft, soggy, hairy coconuts!
