there is no quick way around the sanding process when you have alot of detail to smooth. think of it as a progressive meditative process....

Patience, grasshopper!

Hey moondance. Those carvings sure are progressing along nicely. Dont get too caught up in the stressing, just let it flow and have at it. If you stuff up, there is always another to have a go at.

Yeh, sanding is a pain, but they look heaps nicer when nicely sanded. I cant remember who it was, but someone on here has his missus sand his tikis, whilst he does the fun parts! You just need to find someone like that (dont we all ).

Jeff-
I would appreciate if you would stop raising the bar on the AAC carvings.
You are the AAC King for sure.

I'm working 6 days a week now because we are busy. Also I'm doing work around the house because we are re-financing. I'm half way finished with a concrete spitting Moai and a mask. As soon as that is completed it show-time!
The longer I wait the better your getting so the bar is extremely high at this point. But I not scared (yea right).
Wes
