Thanks, Turbo. Looks like I am sort of the room-to-room selling contact for Hukilau now (you will need to contact me regarding that through the Hukilau site-has an e-mail icon called "vendors"). If we all get close room we can get our own little Eden's Island going in the decor/merch department. 7-It is pretty heavy, about medium dry. I seal those things from top to bottom to slow drying (that's an oil finish on that tiki pole). All wood will crack if it dries too fast...the trick is to get it to only do this at the core and not at the surface. Fact from Brad Fisher, a buddy of mine who builds timberframes: a log loses 85% of it's moisture through the cut ends. Buy a can of pruning seal while working and tar the crap out of both ends of your log. The tiki will thank you!
