Very nice work. Would you mind posting a shot of the chisels you bought and which ones they are?

Thanks everybody for the kind words!!
Rodeo, here is the info you wanted. I got the FlexCut sculptor's set plus I also ordered the 1-3/8" straight chisel and the 1" 60 degree V chisel. I find that I use the flat and the two V chisels the most. I would probably in the future pick up a 1/2" straight chisel for the smaller areas.
If you need more info, check out FlexCut's page
I've already started number 4. Will be posting pictures in a few days.

Oh my goodness gracious! That's great, I love the use of the tattoo, and are the eyelids rounded?

Beautiful work, Ona! I would've never guessed that was a first stab at carving. It seems you've got some real talent. Keep it up and thanks for sharing the pics. I'm looking forward to seeing your next Tiki!

OOOOHHHH,YEAH!!! with all those cool lamps it was just a matter of time before you started carving...very well done, ESPECIALLY for being one of the first! My first one looked like Grum the neanderthal cave dude did it. move over peeps, this boys got some mo' skills to show off...can't wait for #2
Hey, I heard you were at Spermy's?!?!?! DAMN, me too...I didn't get a chance to meet ya. Next time!
haven't had a chance to use the bandaids yet?...just give it time...tikis tend to bite sometimes...even after you're all done carving them...
