I've started on my pile of palm logs.
This looks like any one of my
minimalistic Moai frond pendants..
However, its 4 ft &200 lbs.

I really like palm.
It's EZ on the tool & hands but,
I can't finish it now because it's so wet.
It has to go thru the mold &
mildew stage & dry first.

I have 4 new Mai-Kai molds
I'm starting on.

Those are very nice carves.

I like the way this one is framed by the headdress.

I think I've only experienced this once or twice.
Given how long it takes me to carve anything, they're usually pretty dried out by the time I'm done and ready to start staining.
And luckily we don't have the humidity issues here in San Diego that you have in Florida.

Anyway, thank you for the inspiring work.

Here's the 4 new M.K. molds.
The first 2 are done by the same guy.
I have at least one other by him may be more.
I can tell by the hands, feet,& torso.



The other 2, I'm clueless.
Who are they & where did they come from?

Stylistically, those two grey guys remind me of Barney West. He was really a "big Tiki" carver, and his table top to mid-size carvings were often crude with not much detail.

Those other guys are New Caledonian roof finial carvings:
