That is lookin' sweet, Ono. I bumped a couple of threads up for you - one is mine. It's amazing how much feedback you get when you ask the right questions. I think that's really cool that you and your wife Tikitita carve together.

Aloha!

Thanks Aaron for bumping the threads, I am checking them out now. Ya kind of cool that my wife likes to carve now too. Makes spending hours in the garage much easier and buying new tools a snap

Maybe someone can post a thread on sanding/finishing techniques. What you have used and what you find works the best. I am sure there was probably one already. Maybe we can bump it if you know where it is. Or start fresh for all us new cravers.



Black&Decker makes a nice little sander called "The Mouse." I used to hate sanding until I got one.

How long does it take for palm to dry enough to carve? Is there any secrets, because I'm so anxious to start my first carving I keep cutting into a wet log.

I have never carved any Palm so I do not know. All the woods I have carved are Simi hard woods, mostly Mango and Norfolk Pine.
