Did a little shaping. Not to much because I want to make sure I'm doing it right!!! I definitely need to take the sides of the butt in!




I'm worried about this!!!

And this too!!

Aack! Looks like you have developed a bit of a crack problem. Don't worry, just keep going but be gentle around those areas.

You are making some good progress I think you can still make the kavakava man work out.

Very nice Craig! I see you figured the hands out? The more you look....the more you'll "see it." I can't wait to see more. I'm impressed.

Hi Tikifreak,

I can see the maori chief emerging from the wood.
The hands will be perfect by seeing the drawing.
Go on this way and you'll be happy as I am by looking at your stuff.

Been a little busy this past week, so not much carving time! Got a couple of minutes tonight and worked on shaving the hands down a little more, nose, and trying to balance out some of the body better??







Hopefully the new flexcuts that are on there way will be able to get in some of the tighter areas!

Hi tikifreak,

Flexcuts are a good choice.
Your piece is really coming to life.
To me, the arms are going to be very nice. Will you leave a chisel texture or will you sand them ?

Thanks Seeksurf & Ben. I already had some flexcuts but just the 4 piece set, I just added to my collection. Now I just need to learn how to use them!

I just figured out that I suck at doing noses, and it is even worse to suck with a huge crack down the middle but I think I might be on the right track???? Also, I think I messed up one of the arms and hand I was working on but maybe it just looks weird because everything is not rounded out yet? I believe I still need to shave the face back to flow with the nose but while I was doing this the crack got bigger and felt like the head was going to split in half, so I moved on to something else!

You're on track for a very cool piece... just keep doing what you're doing and you'll be amazed at the results.
