I fell off the edge of the world as far as carving tikis was concerned. I am trying to climb back up the cliff. Heres a tiki I carved for a friends dad. He wanted their family name "Haynes" and Ohana on the tiki somewhere. I figured Ohana should be something highly valued and worth protecting so I used the idea of a Chief/Warrior. Heres my take on "Chief Ohana Haynes"

A few years back I tried a experiment at carving a tiki on the fly with no plan. I didn't like the way it came out, so I sat him in the corner for a few millennia. A while back I decided to give him an extreme makeover. I was carving some design elements on the side of his jaw and when I stepped back I thought it looked like the number 68. So I decided to continue with the 68 theme on the other side and his back. With his elongated spiny snozzle and I decided to call him Ooga 68.

I got a call this morning from a friend who took out an sickly Queen Palm, so with the trusty Ranger I went and scooped it up.
I welcome any advice on drying this Royal Root Ball out, drop a line. Mahalo

Some like queen palm some don't.
Some times it dries & some times it rots.
I think I'd split it down the middle to
give it the best chance to dry.
Then carve 2 masks.
Every one will really like them.

Thanks Will. Never have carved on a Queen, but have seen a lot of them die up this way, and they go quick. Drive around and see them bend in half like they have no core.
Appreciate the advice, sounds like a good plan.

Don't wait. I like Will's idea. When palms die the roots will continue to pump water to the rest of the tree - that's why if they stay in the ground they rot and bend in half. Don't wait for it to dry. Start carving and it will dry out.
