hi guys
thanks to alot of help from fellow tc'ers here are my 1st tiki's

#1 found a palm on the side of the road and could'nt let it go to waste

here it is done,i used special walnut stain and came out alittle darker then i wanted,but its growing on me


#2 after going to a chop and getting some good tips,i think this is a big step up

left the teeth unstained for some contrast

Awesome! Great stuff. Hey, I don't know if you have one but I bought an angle grinder and it makes a hell of a difference in skinning the palm trees I carve on and it helps a lot with the heavy removal. The only things to really look out for are:
1) Getting too dependent on machinery
2) Those things REALLY do some removal...be careful.
3) As above...they can remove huge chunks of skin too!

Keep it up! I've been WAY too lazy and I wasted the entire winter almost...when I should have been carving. I need to get on the ball.
