What’s the best way to preserve carved palm wood kept outside , and fixing it if it’s cracked?


Not much
Sun kills it

I’d say move it inside


Fill the cracks with wood filler and slather the whole thing with either spar varnish or exterior polyurethane.


Is that Queen palm?
That's what Queen palm does usually.
I avoid it.
Palm is tuff to put outside.
All wood does better inside.
What are you carving?
