Cool harro, can't wait to see your work

The palms in the top pic are Majestic Palms. Don't discount them yet!
The easter island tiki I did was with a Cocos palm log which started splitting from the centre a few days after I nicked it from someone's green waste collection. It was actually very nice to carve, but only after it had dried out for a few weeks.
Where in Brissy are you?
Note also November in your diary for green waste council pickup on the north side around the Northgate area.

yeah gibgib, the majestic palms can just sit where they are at the moment, as i have plenty of carving ahead of me with those logs that filled up the boot there... those were from a tree loppers rubbish pile in northgate actually. i'm from holland park though - barely a stone's throw from annerley!! unfortunately i don't get much time to get out in the yard and hack away, so i've not made any progress on the first tiki recently... will try to get back at it soon though! cheers for the botanical advice too.
