This Easter Island Head Carving was power carved by our talented Product Designer Matt Cormack. Matt used a piece of Jarrah and the Ball Gouge.
Matt has excellent woodworking experience and over time he has developed a great eye for form. Since he has over 10 years of power carving experience, he highly recommends that Power Carving Beginners start off sketching lines and form with a carpenters pencil.
Never the less, this is a very quick and easy project, suitable for beginner woodworkers. Furthermore, this woodworking project can easily be completed in under 30 minutes and all you need is a piece of wood, the Ball Gouge power carving attachment and a good quality angle grinder. As a result, the end product will make an excellent garden feature, interior decor item, paper weight or housewarming gift!
