havent carved in a while, but made it up to Hunington Beach today to carve couple of tiki faces in still rooted logs


the customer wanted the same tiki face carved tiwce, so there is a marquesan in the back yard



and his brother in the front




this was my first time carving queen palm, and i was surprised at how much better it was than i thought it would be. The fan palm s still better in my book, but it was interesting carving something different

Nice Marq's Tiki Thomas. That Queen looks different from ours out here and in ours the center turns to mush in a few short months but can be cleaned out leaving a hard shell which is very carvable.

thanks Benz, yeah that was the impression i was under too,but the owners had other queen palm logs that had been cut and drying on the side of their house for 2 years and when i checked them out they were pretty consistent like fan palm.

Make sure you seal the top of that palm asap or it will rot out on you really fast.
