Wow you have been busy in a very good way. I really like the depth of your carvings. I'm curious do palms not need the outer "skin/bark" to transport their food and water? Will these survive the art?
It sure is great to transform stumps into tikis. I've been watching hang10tiki do that in his own backyard. Thank you for sharing, Wendy

Thanks Wendy I believe the palms get there water through the entire trunk they consist of 1000's of individual strands
That flow all the way to the top. My oldest living tree is about thirteen years old. Mexican fan palms are very hardy and I haven't seen one stressed yet. Some people are anti tree carving and I can understand it , but i think its great and a lot of times people are going to cut there palms down and I can help them change their mind and keep a tree alive with a carving.I love palms and grow many different species from seed.

I was expecting a cliché pineapple in the forehead and found a... mailbox! Clever

Are the tikis at the flower fields new? I was there a couple of years ago and didn't remember seeing them.

The mailbox tikis are definitely cool. The tikis at the Flowerfields in Carlsbad were only there for demonstration while I was carving them at an artshow. Thanks for the inquiry.

Hey man, love your work. I was passing through San Diego today and shot a few tikis at Fish House Vera Cruz. Is the indoor tiki yours also? And the new one being carved on the live palm?

Thanks! The indoor tiki is made by a friend of mine years ago. The two outdoor tikis are carved by me. The live tree with some cuts in it was one I was going to carve when I worked there about ten years ago but I was to afraid the city would have not liked it. I work for the city mow and we have talked about it but it is a sticky situation still to get permission.

I like your tiki with the holes that go all the way through! Now you'll never have to listen to someone telling you to "go deeper" as seems to be popular on Tiki Central.
