Many thanks guys
@tikigodz, these woods are very nice to carve especially cherrywood, elm is a bit harder
@Creative Chimp, this is my restaurant in la rochelle called "La caisse à jus", maybe in the futur i'll make a tiki bar/food
@Tikilizard, it was very difficult to carve, this piece of driftwood is like a sponge, i used a cutter blade to do it

Beautifully done. Is that the black palm? I have a small piece of it that has not been carved and it looks very similar.

Shrunken,

Your work is awesome, but particularly that last one, it looks so authentic that it could be put right in a forest in Hawai'i and be mistaken for an ancient relic...

Aloha,

Paul

Very nice stuff. It seems that France has more than it's share of top notch talent.
