I love how crisp and smooth your cuts are. What kind of wood did you say you use?

Thanks everybody!
Poobah, I use Mexican Fan Palm. Probably doesn't grow in your neighborhood.

I started another tiki today, a female, but no pics yet, so I'll tide things over with a group shot or two of tikis currently 'in stock' in my yard.

Thank you all, it means a lot!
I did some carving today. I've always wanted to try to do something with the larger scrap pieces that are the result of chainsawing the rough shapes. Today I gave it a try, and here's what I came up with.

This one is full round log on the top, and was cut off at a sharp angle, giving it a decapitated head quality that doesn't fully show in this pic.


These two are thin wedge shapes, probably 1.5" at the middle. Kinda Witco, but they never used palm.


Here's the female I started yesterday. You can see why I have a lot of wedge shaped scraps! The two masks above are from this tiki.

It's actually a lot further along than this pic shows, so look for another progress shot tomorrow.
