very cool stuff.

The grain on that last one really came out with the stain.

conga: thank you, yep i was striving for something simple and, hopefully, appealing

nomolos,drastic, lake: many thanks! I don't like carving this pine all that much, but have to admit the grain pattern can be really striking.

pennjones, pjc5150: much appreciated. i chose to leave this one a little on the light side to let the grain show through. however, i am staining the next one a bit darker just for fun.

Hey Benz, thanks! Yes, only 10. Feels like it took forever to get there...

I see you've been putting some of those large logs to use. I'll bet he weighs a ton. Probably make a good door stop! Can't wait to see him finished.

Thanks Benz & Marcus! The crappy picture doesn't really do it justice.

Amate: Yeah, it weighs a ton (probably 200 - 250 lbs I'm guessing).

Here's some earlier pics:

Happy New Year all! The new Moai is finally done. I cut some damaged area off of the bottom, so the height is now 5' 10". But it still weighs a ton.













The tattoos are different on each side, but didn't get a clear pic of the other arm.
