I finished this baby Moai today. It's my first moai but definitely not the last one. I really like the style what Rapa Nuis used.
This one I carved is very small, but I next I am trying bigger one. I used birch tree, and it was pretty hard.
I used two chisels and a hammer:)

I'm very impressed, AA. I've only created one tiki so far, also a moai, and I recieved a similar welcome. Everyone here is very accepting. Welcome aboard!

Thanks, Finkdaddy. I'd be flattered, but these are Tiki-Finland's, not mine. I just took his link & added the code so they'd appear here at TC without going to the separate wesbite

Oops!! When I was looking for his name I just scrolled up till I saw one.

Nice work Tiki-Finland!
(and you too Aaron. I can't find AAC block anywhere in the midwest!)
