I loved them as they were but I have to say that, that little bit of extra "wow" really did make them even more impressive.

Thanks swizzle, plugger and Lee.
Plugger, yup, they are fan palm.
I delivered them yesterday, and he has several more pieces of palm he wants carved.

So, are you installing them ?
How you going to stand them up. Whats the game plan.
Are they dry & light or wet & heavy ?
Looks like you lean them against the tree in the pics you show. You stand them up by your self ?
We don't get fan or any palm that girthy here.
Can we get an install pic ?

It's up to the client to install them. I gave him some suggestions on how I would do it.

They are all pretty dry and light enough that I could stand them up by myself. Picture a solo version of the Iwo Jima flag-raising.
The Lono is the lightest and probably weighs about 30lbs max!

No install pics yet. The client needs to decide where in the yard he wants to place them. I definately will get pics when that happens, but it might be awhile.

You're killing me. Those are awesome!!! Am I mistaken or did you say 30 lbs??? I just used a come-along to stand up a 5 foot, 16 inch diameter cedar elm (hardwood). It's closer to 300 than 30.

Haha, yeah I did say 30 lbs. That tiki on the left, I can stand in front of and with my palms on the knees, press it straight up with very little effort. I think I'm on the high side with the 30 lb estimate.
This is wood that has been cut done for a few years, and it's fully dry. When palm is freshly cut down, it's soaked with water and and a bitch to move.

The bomb house is no more, Mike. The threat is neutralized! Tikis are safe!

The local outrigger club wanted some tiki skulls for awards, so I busted some out this week.


Alas, poor Yorick!

Absolutely wonderful pieces here Bill, love 'em.
You must have a big farm of drying logs somewhere.
