That looks good Sunset Mike, I have a similar piece going but not that huge. What did you use for a base to hold that big guy up and what kind of wood is it?

right now it's being held up in a vise. Eventually I'll either peg it to a base or just leave it natural.
It's sort of a staff, but the wood is a little too fragile to be used for that so it's really a decoration.

I'm not sure what kind of wood it is. I get what I can where I find i usually. A form of recycling!

Good question, Jeff! I'm wondering if it is phone pole size are just a deceptive camera shot .... either way, it is impressive!

a deception yes, but not intended. Taking an image from below I was trying to capture more feature and ended making it look 10 feet tall. It is actually less 5 feet and is sort of a walking stick. Amazing what illusions photography can create. As I said, not intended, therefore not deceptive.
Thanks for the comments!

Either way it looks great. I like the pale color.

Nearly ready. Teak oil provides color along with a small amount of stain.

Attention landscapers

I am trying to find some more wood and looking for excess from landscape.
Queen palm, sabal, and anything carveable

There are good and bad days.

Most people want to spend $100 or less and some of my stuff just can't go for that amount. I bargain frequently.
