cedar is actually really good to carve with hand or power tools. it cleans up real nice also. as far as carving ice, try to stay away from power (i.e. anything that plugs in). but a chainsaw will be your best friend in carving large blocks. think outside the box for tools. wood and cold chisels work good. so do cheese graters(a chef should have plenty of these), files and rasps, axes, etc. and a good handheld propane torch for polishing.
