Holy snappers Laz!! I would give my left chisel for a stash like that!! Congrats on the treasure trove of palm.
Where I am palm is hard to come by. At least I haven't found a good source yet. The pine I use sometimes kicks out a greyish color that I'm not too fond of but sometimes it gives it good character. I'm learning to really try and make use of whatever the particular piece has too offer colorwise. A lot of the pine I use has a nice reddish golden tint underneath the bark that I like to include in the finished product if I can. I'm headed to Roundtop TX tomorrow with my uncle to help him down some cedars on his property. I'm excited to beef up my stash as I'm running low. I'll post pics later. Keep on keepin on Laz, you're headed down the right track. As a wise carver once said, "practice makes progress"



Jay, I also have a stack of various kinds of logs (mostly pine), but if you run short of logs let me know.

The last time I was over at TheBigT's house he had so many large pine logs, He could have started a sawmill!

Thanks BigT. I went to Roundtop today. My uncle has 5 acres with a ton of dead cedars he's trying to clear so I went with him and helped him out. I'm excited to work with cedar again. It's been forever. I'll show the whole batch I brought home later. Here's the tree we pulled down:

Nice, looks like pine. Maybe you can finish before the rain today!

Just moved all my stash of newly acquired pine and cedar to my carving area in the backyard. It's now off the ground and covered before the rain hits. I'm beat! Hopefully I can recharge and get back to that commission piece...
