Well Mr. #5 got a shave and a haircut yesterday





So from this


to this


Not bad but not what I was going for, I'll use a dark stain on the part where the bark was to restore a bit of the look I was after.

Also started a big moai yesterday







just roughed in so far.

I think even without the bark he still looks great, dude. Seriously. Your stuff kicks some serious butt. Keep it up!

Thank you very much. Still real new to this but loving it for sure.

I agree he still looks good but I just loved that big tapered look you know, was a perfect little short patio table, now he's more like an end table, haha.

Alright enough internet, time to get carving.
