Looks great! Did you stain it or just the burning? I like the hands, and I like how the nose turned out. I have trouble with noses.

Thanks , the nose is a little off if you look at it straight on , but hey I'm still trying to get the hands down , they look okay , but not " right " , I don't know . It was fun though , and I'm deffinatley getting the feel for it .

It isn't stained , but it sat out in the rain last night . . . so it got a little dark . I used a propane torch to darken the cuts in it and then sanded it a little to get it lighter on the highspots . just standard cave man shit here

I just need a good local place to get palm trunks now . My tree trimmer guy is AWOL and I don't have any good leads .
