Here's some progress shots on the bar board. I decided to carve a bamboo pattern for some weird reason. It's damn hard. I should have just bought bamboo! Even though there are a lot of mistakes I'm going to keep going till it's finished and see what it looks like stained. I'll use a dark stain on the background and a light stain on the foreground parts for definition. I may not put it on the bar but I'll use it for something.

Thanks, guys!

I have a 3 foot palm log and a 5 foot palm log seasoning right now on my back patio with plenty of tarps to keep the rainy weather off. I'll wait for them to dry out a bit before I tackle another Tiki pole carve, but in the meantime I'll work on the board project and post pics when I'm done.
