Chiki- beautiful work, as always! Is that palm that has been stained? The wood looks too smooth for palm. Great work. How tall is the guy from thw Witness Protection Agency?

Thanks peeps for the props. A tiki like this sells for an everyday low price of $125 per foot. I carved it out of seasoned palmwood and stained it with some smelly minwax(early american). Then finished it off with Man o' War satin varnish. If you need a log like this, just tip you're local tree trimmer and throw in some Bohemia beers. The owner was 5' something and the tiki is 6'. The tiki is not high detail, but I focused on the basic form , lot's of curves and arcs. I wanted to keep this one.

Is the owner a member of TC? Ask him to come on over or share some pictures of his other pieces in his collection if he has any.

Chiki, nice carving, I wish I had your cell phone number the other day. I was walking by the courthouse to go to lunch, and the were removing one of the giant fan palms. It must have been at least 50 ft high and 3'wide at the base. They were just grinding chunks of it up! By the time I finished lunch that beauty was nothing but dust. I was disturbed all day, just thinking about it.
