update, finished carving a little moai, the wood sucks, alot of cracks and kind of fibery, good thing i carved a moai with it, i think moais look cool with cracks in em. but it looked a little plain so i carved some maori style tattoos on him. when i finish a little more sanding im gonna stain him black and paint the tattoos in red. I also did more work on ku, but no pic.
