not finished yet. I planned on getting more done this week, however my newest grandson decided to be born instead.
We helped out a little by watching his brothers and sister. Baby & his Mom & Dad are healthy and happy....Welcome to the family, David!
Here are some progress pics of the monkeys.


I still have to clean it up and then carve some type of border to try to keep it a little TiKi-ish.

#4 in the ground




I would like some advice on this guy.
Do you think that I should trim the top at a slightly rounded shape that would match the contour of his head-dress?
Maybe leaving the top as is looks a little choppy.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks for looking.

The monkeys came out awesome! On #4 you could just flatten him off a little lower than he is now to match the other guys.

That top edge looks like a castle wall! I suggest you cut it off a few inches lower than it is, and parallel to that top-most cut of the design, as seen in this view. That way, it won't be level with the ground, but with the design. Does that make sense? If I had skills, I'd do a photo shop.
