It looks great, H10. You appear to have a specimen of the rare Cyclopean Tiki* in your backyard.

*Did you know the name Cyclops refers to the roundness of the eye and not to the singularity? This useless information brought to you by Professor G. It's what I do.

I wasn't encouraging you to leave it as a cyclops; I just thought it looked like one. I would never ask a Brother of the Blue Bobs Society to carve in an unTiki manner.

You'll have to carve deeper than the knot in order to get rid of it, or figure out some way incorperate it in the design. Personally, I would used it as an eye, and carved another one just like it to balance out the other side of the face. Yeah, the tiki would be facing out at an angle, but that could lead to some fairly interesting inspirations.
When the trunk finally dies and it dries out, it's gonna be splitting like a MotherF*cker anyway, so it may not even matter that you "get rid of" the knot...

Bamboo must be drinkin foo foo drinks at the skatepark but, he used to say things like "fire" when something broke or was unsalvageable....I personally don't feel this one is ready for that fate. I agree that it can be one or two eyed. It just depends on the amount of time you spend crafting the approach and executing it to its perfection and stunning us all with its brilliance!

But yeah......it's gonna crack like a mother effer!

Nice effort hangar, great progress shots too. You're doin it right by letting it rest and gel in yer mind before hacking it up. A solution will appear just don't let that knothole demand to be something you don't want. Cool stuff.
