Love it!! Having been a "Floridian" for four years I actually got to dive with a manatee at Weeki-Wachi .... Can't wait to see how this guy turns out! ... That cedar is cool! Does it carve good? Is it a soft wood?

thanks Captain.

and yeah...it's pretty soft. It cracks & breaks really easily, so it likes an angle grinder a lot more than a chisel.

but sand it well & rub some poly on it and it explodes with color. I love making stuff with it.

Well, I have another commercial gig down in Anna Maria Island. I'm heading down tomorrow & doing a dead palm on the main drag. So hopefully I'll be able to get it done in fairly short order & get back by Friday.

I'll try to post some pics in the next few days.
