More new stuff.

Carved in Royal Poinciana about 13" tall. The picture does not do the color justice - bright yellow with black stripes.

Nice Tom! Is Royal Poinciana the wood it's carved from or the place it was carved at?

It never occurred to me that South Florida carvers have access to some unusual woods that people in other parts of the country wouldn't see. All sorts of tropical stuff.

AlohaStation, maybe you could give some more specifics on what the poinciana wood is like and how well it worked for carving.

This was a fresh cut piece when I carved it. Every blow of the mallet forced a drop of water out of the wood. Carved well when wet - I did not do any detail. It sat in my unfinished box for a while to dry out. I recently picked it up and finished carving the details and clean up. I would compare it to a tightly packed palm - stringy but willing to accept some massaging. WillCarve has the rest of this piece - its big! The best thing about the poinciana is the color, pics just don't do it justice. It is a bright yellow with black streaks - gorgeous!

Tang Mask


Smaller Tiki Skull mask

The masks are nice, but who carved the gnarly feet? Not to mention you're wearing flipflops while the rest of us are freezing our asses off!
Great work as always Tom, glad to see you're keeping busy making art.

Inspired by WillCarve I started this project. More soggy palm - I hollowed out the inside and will probably add a light. Still very wet and needs to dry.

Some nice projects you have going there. I'd love to try my hand on some of that palm. Do you guys ever use Mexican Fan Palm? That's about all we have around here.
