Looks great so far Tom, can't wait to see it finished. The other two pieces made it home without customs inspecting them at all.

I have been inspired by my new medium (palm fronds) and have a lot of ideas rolling around in my head. Taking what I carve and using them in unusual ways. Some experimenting is going to be required. In the meantime - here's my latest.

How long do they need to dry out before you can carve them and what kind of palm is it? By the way, nice carve!

I don't know how to stop him from posting but I do know how to stop a rhino from charging - you take away his credit card! *rimshot*

Nice one Tom

Mudbone - I'm still experimenting and every frond is different. This is what I've learned... You can start carving as soon as you want. The amount of water in a frond is generous, so if you carve them wet be aware that they shrink and warp. Carving them when wet is easier but does not allow a lot of detail (and its easier to over cut). I prefer carving them when they are dry. I have tried: Royal Palm, Sabal palm, coconut, triple-leaf, chinese fan, and some other random species (I have a wide variety to choose from in the SE Peninsula of the US Continental Tropics) - no favorite just different sizes and shapes. I carve using a hook blade or #2 Xacto.

Thanks for the information, the only wood I've carved from Florida was cedar, oak and eucalyptus and I can still smell it!
