ben, thanks. i did get that small warren set today and popped out that little moai with just the hook knife. admittedly, it is just basswood (my dad was pushing me to give it a try, i still want to stick to hardwood), but at least it lets me get used to the new tools and what they can do.

That Moai is off to a good start. The Bassword is nice for getting the feel for a tool - especially one one as intinidating as the hook blade. If you stick with the small stuff look into using some of the palm chisels as well as chip carving knives. These have smaller blades that can be controlled better on alot of the harder woods. Keep going you'll only get better.

Really well done pDrake, that Moai is Excellent! Just wait till you get used to the tools and as AlohaStation said, the bass wood is the perfect wood to learn on. you will only get better as you learn the tools.

Pdrake don't give up on that first one. Give the mouth some definition and find the nose under there somewhere and he will be killer.
Your Moai looks excellent . Keep up the good work

p.s. i don't know how to modify the title of a thread. anyone care to help?
