How large IS that guy Suburb? HE is looking great. I Love all the patterned tool marks, It shows you are using a structured technique. Can't wait to see this guy done.

Thanks a lot you guys.....I'm glad the chisels are going over so well! I just can't bring myself to use a chainsaw on these.....I love the process of tapping and chipping and leaving those marks and you can bet that they will be in the finished tiki! Thanks again! Updates as they come in!
