heres a start of my first carving on a palm log i picked up on the side of the road, ive been carving a bit of "hebel" air rated concrete, with my fellow ozzy "Hewey" a member on here and i posted some pics of that here somewhere , so i thought id make it simple to stay on one post and continue as i go heres a couple of shots of the first hit and a couple of days later with my dog pestering me ..All critisism welcomed..

Mate, you've moved it inside - much better than carving in light drizzle and poor light at night!

Here are his previous tikis:
1st ever tiki!

2nd tiki!


Given your previous work, I'm sure this one will be another stunner

Those logs can be a real bitch.... so stringy... but its hard to find the different species(s) that California has in Oz, I have been looking at lots of palms since ive been in Cali and they are quite differnt to those cocos palms or whatever they are.. so you are doing well to get any result i think..
Cheers Maaaaaaaaate!
