Unless it was a Sugar pine, the yelows aren't protected. most localaties have rules wher you Must get a permit to cut down ANY Tree no matter what it is. The Sabal/cabbage is protected in some counties and is the state tree I believe. Yellow pines are free to good carvers. McTiki Loves carving the stuff and might trade you some for some of that lousy white pine when you find it up north.

Aaron- Many thanks sir. I am just getting used to the spray/stencil thingy. I come back later and sharpie the $hit out of it once I figure out where the lines really go.

Capt & Skully - Thanks alot! The foliage is mainly Passion vine along with jasmine and some other things that will be revealed later All my Wahine's effort and thumbs.

Isle Conch - Thanks again Isle. Can'5t wait to see the Veggie Tikis...I wonder if there is a way to preserve pumpkin flesh?

Tiki G - I absolutely covet the fact thet you get to carve on this stuff all the time. I needs me a hook up! And a road trip is not out of the question. We have to tour a storefront in Ormond Bch this weekend. We'll talk!

Aloha - Tiki G has to bring it down the peninsula from his private stash lol (White pine is not indigenous here)

Ben - Yeah I so amped to be whackin on the yellow stuff. It excites me to my spiritual core. But, yes, I would begrudgingly let some go in trade for Basswood or White pine indeed.

Updates on the White Pine:












Mahalo

Looking good! I think you likes the stuff. Less messy huh...and no splinters, or rotten wood, or mold, or extra weight, or stripping, or finding. You just have to pay to get it here. That's the only downfall, but it's worth it.

Ormond Beach huh? Give us a call.

I agree. Sort of reminds me of the "Tongue Tiki" at Caliente Tropics.



I think we need a dedicated IsleConch thread, complete with progress shots on those palm logs.

Looks like you are doing really well with that second class white pine. It Does carve sweeter than that old Yellow stuff you're trying to pawn off on peeps. More Pix is what we need.

Nice chops Mc.

Pine Pine Pine.

Still lots here. Almost all we gots. So much I turn it away. The old forests have been replaced by tree farms.




You should see 'em in Northern Wisconsin hauling it by the truckload to the paper mills... I look at it and say, "There go a load of tikis."
Poor guys, they have no idea they're going to be made into toilet paper.




To bad you guys have to pay for it... had I an easier way I send you all you wanted!


Keep up the great work!

Cool. Lake, Think of a tiki as another tree saved from the toilet paper factory?
