my first log and going to be my first carving. i hope to document it here. i hope to get a lot of advice and encouragement. i got it at work. it's been sitting around horticulture for almost 2 years. it's about 4'6" and about 12-20" in diameter. still weighs about 150lbs. his name will be 5749. that's how we track all the palms on property. he still had this tag on him, so i decided he should keep it.

mahalo for looking

heh, i know it's not real tiki. but, he came with a name and i think he was meant to live with it. i remembered that i have quite a few knives around that are sharp and functional. (read weapons, i do midieval recreation stuff). i started taking the bark off. it comes off like butter, but i don't know how deep to go. i can already see him coming out. he'll be traditional island with a headdress. i'm not quite ready to do a body.

Looks like some hard wood for palm,I have a couple of pieces of the same. I finished one and it was like carving stone. What is the tag for?
Best o' luck, keep it posted,

the tag is for inventory and location. there are thousands of trees and plants on our properties. i guess it makes it easier to say, "go pull tree 5749" than to say, "go pull that weird, bent tree about 50 yrds from where that old lady fell and broke her hip in '95".

Aloha bruddah!
Looks like youve got some great material there...So, you live on a property with how many palms? cool bruddah! Hey so, no worries about calling da buggah 5749 but if you want to "tiki" it up a bit you can call him 5749 in Hawaiian: "Lima hiku ha iwa!" (pronounced "lee-ma-hee-koo-ha-eeva!"...
Sound mo bettah, yeah?

Anyway, keep posting da kine photos for us to spark!

Malama Pono!
