Yup, the key with ceder is sharp implements (well, with any wood for that matter...)

Knives are fine for your first carving, but once you start you'll want to go get some chisels. If you've carved ice and enjoy it, I'm sure you'll get the itch for tiki wood carving too.

check out this recent thread for other tool ideas:

The dremel is worth it's weight in gold for detail and small carvings. That's (basically)all you need if you want to practice on some small carvings first. Good luck and get out there and start carving!
