Yea I'm really pleased with this one so far...

I think I may order a few of the larger Flex Cut chisels to assist in going a bit deeper in the face...Maybe the sculptors set?

Thanks for the comps and as always thanks for looking!!

one thing I found when I started becoming more aware of the depth of cut is that I basically just had to give myself a little more space between eyes nose & mouth so I had room to work. You could probably acheive the same effect with the chisels you have now. Just leave 2 inches instead of 1 in between facial features and go deeper.

But once again, very cool piece. You're rampin' up quick bro!

Yes i recommend the sculptors set. The smaller ones break easy if you use them with a mallet.

Alright...finally mustered up the courage to attack one of the bigger logs. Took me 4 times as long to do the same work as on the small logs but I'm liking the larger area to work with...not too much finished but let me know what ya think so far and Thanks for Looking!!

Hey bro,have you considered getting one of these?

http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&q=workmate&rlz=1R2TSNF_enUS433&gs_upl=20686l22792l0l23135l8l8l0l1l1l0l266l1326l0.3.4l7l0&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&biw=1366&bih=556&wrapid=tlif131610307802810&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=5066167301753625406&sa=X&ei=viNyTpbgLI_qgQe5tvyMBQ&ved=0CEMQ8gIwAA#

My grandfather gave me one 6 months ago & it's absolutely wonderful...Before I got this thing, watching me carve was like watching a wrestling match.
