I'm sure you'll do great with it! I need to try the power tool method! All I use are chisels ... I even stripped a 6 footer yesterday for the next tikis with only the draw knife! The grinder/chainsaw/planer don't get used enough around here ....

yeah, I'm just lazy as f**k. I'll always use a saw & and angle to strip bark, but I also use the saw on a lot of the initial deep cuts as a time saver, and then chisel 'em from there.

So yeah, this one's all chisel (except the bark stripping)...I started beating on this one last night at the Sunset tiki party, but this piece of palm is a little crumbly....so we'll see how it goes. I don't know what the hell I was thinking anyway starting another palm piece... Tom gave me a nice chunk of mahogany, and Benz gave me a chunk of douglas fir that seems like it's gonna carve like butter, and I'm kinda anxious to get one of them going here...but for some dumb reason I picked up the piece of palm...duh.




and wow...what a party! it was pretty crazy last night...exotica & surf bands, hot bikini chicks everywhere, and there must have been like 25 or 30 5-gallon buckets full of rum punch...I sold a tiki almost immediately, and the dude & his buddy's literally carried it around with them for the rest of the night,stopping by on every pass to high five me and say "awesome tiki bro!!!" They were way stoked on it, and that makes me happy. I had a great time, made a lot of new friends, and kinda furthered my rep here on the sun coast as "the tiki guy". So I think I'm gonna take the cash I made of the tiki & get a few smaller chisels, and maybe my first run of SURF SOUL TIKI T-shirts (I wish I'd had them yesterday!). Anyway, the Sunset Tiki Party was a HUGE success...there mustr have been 3 or 4 hundred people there...wow.

Kool pic's of your trip Jeff and looks like a few tips from Tom and Will have paid off as the new guy looks great.
Cant wait to see him finished.
