Big T, Well some palm are very solid just like wood, When you make tiki face your really not cutting big chunks of palm out , tiki faces are more like drawing with a chainsaw where as when you are making 3 d carvings your really taking out large pieces of wood all around the palm instead of just the front, but yes alot softer than cutting some oak, i heard that is like a rock i have not carved oak yet , just palm cypress and cedar, thanks for the comment though,

Your sculptures are really good.
That sail fish is way cool but I bet
that tail is fragile.
Palm, when it gets thin is not so noble.

Hello Tiki Central I have not been posting lately, just wanted to post pictures of the past 25 days , Pictures from the Farmers Market selling on the side of the road here in Orlando, New carvings and carvings that i am now working on, thanks for looking practice makes progress have a nice day!

Here is my New Logo






This is at the Orlandos Farmers Market every sunday









This is at a corner of of a main street on East Orlando and other areas. I also carve while i am their ,I do not have a permit yet so I do not do it often but when I do I always sell enough to make me happy











Here are the carvings I have made form 1/16





















Here are my first Palm Fronds






Here are carvings I am working on








thank you so for looking , Well you guys know my background is Ice Carving and i made a decision to leave the ice industry on September. I left because all ice carving companies are using the cnc machine , I just got bored placing a block in the machine and letting the machine do all the work them me comming in and touching the machine made sculpture , I could not do that any longer i miss old school hand carvings , So I decided to start doing tiki carvings because i knew some one in tampa that did that , so i thought it would be a peice a cake . but it was not ,
But you guys on here coached me helped me should me the tools and tequnics for that I am grateful.

Today I Only do Ice Carving shows I did this Gig last year with Another Artist, Americas Got talent contacted me yesterday and ask me if I can do A 90 second show, I said yes so they asked me for a video to show the Executive Producer, So The Guy that filmed our Show put this together, I know its not Tiki but I thought I would share the link,

I am so grateful for Tiki Central I have grown so much and it has opened a new world of opertunities for me , Thank You All Love and respect

Thanks Will, That was inspired by the teachings of my teacher/Guru of the Culinary Arts Chef Rufino Pambuan
Garde Marge Chef Universal Studious, He seen the ambition I had and took me under his wing, Garde Manger is the department in the kitchen that deals with Cold Food, fruit platters annti pasto vegetable trays cheese trays ect. ect. So one day i made this beutiful fruit tray and he was very pleased, The next day I did the same one and he was very dissapointed and quite irritable he pulled me into his office and gave me a lesson to live by as a Artist.
He said never make the same thing twice and teach everything you know, That will put you in a creative mind frame and you will never bore the people you are displaying the art to, , in the culinary arts you usally serve the same people so you have to give them some thing new, Then he told me if you teach what you know it forses you to continue learning new designs if not your student will out grow you, So Will I have done so many diffrent Carvings since i Have been on here that I come with crazy designs lol thank you so much Will you have been so helpful in my tiki journey

I almost for got When I was working in Culinary arts I was the Ice carver for the hotel so we would have a Sunday Brunch ever sunday , So with the taking head to my teacher i always made a new designs for the sunday bruch,
The chef gave me the freedom to carve anything I wanted so for one year I made 55 difrent carvings lol

This is a real fun thread to come to, keep carving and putting pictures up. Love your work, its playful and fun to look at. All your pieces have movement to them, they flow and I like that. Too bad you live so far.
