Good job! Where do you live, and how long have you been carving?

If you're in FL, then that's probably palm? If so, those 'nail holes' you mention in the first post are most likely scars from tree climber's spikes. We get that in our palm out here in CA.

I'm afraid there's no cure other than to keep carving! If you are looking for wood - expand from Palm - in the Orlando area you have: Live Oak, Pecan, Camphor as well as Cedar. Lots of options. Keep the tikis comin!

Very nicely done! Looks like you've been at it for years. I see you prefer to spell your name with dos equis.
