Ben - Thanks, I'm trying!

And AlohaStation, yup, it's very difficult! As you can see I'm still getting the hang of some of my mallet tools and chisels. Getting that "rounded" look comes from getting more experience with the "V" cuts and practice. You are absolutely right, I kept of removing material (especially on Tiki #1) in order to create depth. My tikis are still very one-dimensional. A few chops ago, Buzzy, gave me another lesson in creating depth and the technique you described above, but it's really hard! That's why I bow down to the really talented and experienced carvers.

I'm working on my Twisted Tiki right now after that I want to attempt a Moai in order to get the hang of rounding technique. And heck no -- no offense taken, you're just passing on some wisdom and tips!

Mahalo!
