Could this be Queequeg? I still don't get how you carve those tiny little dots. If you guys haven't noticed those dots are convex, not concave. It looks awesome Ben

Thanks everyone for the props. I have to agree with Swank, he looks like Nicholas Cage more than anyone. Definately not mean looking enough for Queequeg.
Raffertiki, here is my secret tool for those "little dots". It is a jewelers tool either for engraving or for putting a fancy edgearound a stone setting. For me it works well on wood, although difficult to control and takes a lot of strength to roll it around in circles.






Hope this explains how the dots are added.
Thanks again everyone.

You say "Back down to normal stuff" and you come up with this?! Normal stuff is a plain log that has a barely recognizable tiki face on it. #60 is not ordinary, he's extraordinary!

Thanks guys. There are so many pieces I want to carve and so many I need to carve, I don't know where to start, so I'll just keep chippin' away.
