That will make for one custom palapa, TM! The tattooing style looks great. Save some for our carving session.

Hmmmm... sounds good, but gotta check my schedule. We've got a 5 day trip to San Filipe over Labor Day. Might have to be sometime after that. I'll PM you. It would be cool to come out to your place.

Wow! They really all look identical and I know that's hard to do. This will make the most custom tiki palapa around. Nice. I wouldn't sweat the color difference. The wood character just highlights how accurate the carving is between the four posts.

Is this palapa going in your own backyard? Would be nice to see in person sometime (We've got a Hawaii trip coming up - but let's get together sometime after that for sure).

Excellent work, Andy.

Wow... your poles are sweet! Love the big stuff... it is a challenge to work that big but when you step back and take a look at it... !!!!!
Your carvings have really taken on a seasoned and precise style... keep up the great work and keep working huge!

Thanks for the comps Guys.

Aaron, They are not going in my Backyard (I wish) They are actually going to someone from MTV so Those 2 might be famous, I'll keep you updated, If what I have heard Pans out. I will have pics of the finished product soon, and I'll post a few.


Lake, What's that saying? "Go big or go Home":) I actually like doing the Really Big Logs, Seems like that is all I get requests for lately? Next up I have 3 Six footers and a 5 footer to do. All Palm wood.

tikimec-nice work! How about a tip for us aspiring palm log carvers? How did you get the wood so smooth? I use sabal or cabbage palm and it's so stringy/fibery/grainy, etc. that it seems no amount of sanding gives me the smoothness you've attained in you carves. Is there that much of a difference between sabal and mexi-fan palms?

Thanx bro,
And keep posting those bad-ass works!
