Here is the current work in progress. Its a queen palm, 4' tall and 11" diameter. Its still a bit green. I'll make some cuts, then give it a couple of days in which to dry out a bit - then hopefully, be able to get back at it.

Wow! Lovely stuff! My Uncle Barry is thinking about trying his hand at carving Tikis. I suggested he start with cedar, but I suspect he will pick up a driftwood log from the beach since it will be free. I hope I can help him carve it. This thread is so inspiring!

I really like your Mort Jagger! I live right by Trader Morts, and I really like that tiki! You really made a good likeness to the original. Good job!

Thanks for the kind words. I liked starting out with cedar. Its more like real wood - certainly as compared to palm. .. but if driftwood was readily available in my local, without a doubt, I'd be carving it too. Be sure to check out the recent post by 4WDTiki - he's been using driftwood for his latest tikis. I feel that searching on the beach for a good piece of driftwood to carve would be fun in itself. Ya know, finding a piece of wood that already sort of looks like something. It is a great hobby & am sure, you and Uncle Barry will have a good time at it. My recommendation: if you want to do it, is don't give it too much thought, just set some time aside for it & then start to let the wood chips fly. Of course, be sure to observe all safety precautions - but the main thing is to make it hands on. Anyways, thats what works for me - although, I read about how everyone else approached it on Tiki Central as well.
Good luck.

Hiya Lunavideogames, Thanks for the compliment. Mort Jagger gives a wink So far, my tikis have ended up as gifts for close friends & family - but believe I might be approaching that day in the near future when I'll be in a selling mode. Thanks for asking (you've just made my day) & I'll let ya know.
