When it rains it pours and when it doesn't its a drought.

Drought is over. Will and I have been hunting palm logs for a few weeks now with no luck. Not even our tree trimmer connection could come through. Within 24 hours our fortunes have changed. First I get lucky and then he found these. The big chunk has to be close to 3.5 feet wide.

This carve is so awesome its hard to decribe. Its not small or big. The grain of the wood is very unique - there are a million colors blended to perfection by mother nature. Can't wait to see it finished.

As you guys know I remade the 24 pole swords
that guard the Chinese oven at the Mai-Kai.



Well,
My buddy I carved the table legs for asked
what it would take to get me to make him some
since I still have the molds for them.
I refused.
He has nothing that would get me to make even one.
However,
I agreed to lone him the molds & he can make his own.
He like that idea & agreed to rise to the challenge.
He even offered up to make me a rack full.
To make a 6 month long story short.





Just look at the outstanding job he did.
I'm sure he was thinking the wood rack holding them
would be a slam dunk.
He didn't count on the sword part.
He made a rack of 4 for himself.
He made a rack of 3 for me.
Mine are displayed proudly next to the
front entrance of the 417&1/2 club
for EZ access to repel any unwanted attackers.
