Sorry the rootball is spoken for. You can visit him whenever you are in Fort Lauderdale. He now resides at Kreepy Tiki - the coolest tikibar/tattoo studio in FTL! Look for the 20' neon hula girl on Federal Highway by the FTL airport.

I did those smaller quick carves and had the half of the log waiting. So I put the small guys to the side to dry and dove into the other half. Taking my time and trying some new things. This weekend I got a chance to sand him.

Merry Christmas to everyone out there. I hope that you keep your chisels sharp, paintbrushes clean, kilns fired, or whatever it takes to keep creating tiki. Happy New Year and remember to keep posting.

OK so Will Carve inspired me. After checking out his latest, I went home and chopped off a dead palm frond off a tree in my front yard. The branch was dead and hanging, but still full of water. The ones Will is using are very dry and shriveled - I will use a older one next time. The one I used was very soft and wet. My daughter wanted to have a beach party for her friends, so I brought along a distraction and whittled the frond while enjoying a beautiful day at the beach. 83 degree air and 78 degree water - I love SFL in the winter! I carved a little too deep in some areas, because it was so easy to cut. I was feeding the wood chips to sea gulls that were hounding us for food. They didn't eat them, but watching them fight over them was entertaining. The tiki is starting to warp as it dries - I'm gonna screw it to a board to keep it straight.

Sounds like a perfect day for the beach and carving. I'm liking the results.
