  2. Itchy foot

    Thank you guys! I'm gonna have more worth looking at here soon. I'm liking the natural look but some customers prefer color. It's a ton quicker to do. That cherry grain is something else. I have world likes on this little piece so it's fun to see all of the remarks! Can't wait to keep cutting with my new husqvarna detail saw. Very well worth the $$$. Next is a hummingbird with saw carved roses at the base. It's taking shape and fingers crossed!

    When the weather gets nice in Pa, I try to do something a bit different instead of being cooped up inside. Here is some things I have either done or started on .1 hr so far.
  5. Perched eagle

    Hi Cal. Anything is game on in chainsaw carving. I've even seen it laminated from kiln dried too. To preserve it I'll use 1/3 log oil 1/3 thinner and sometimes 1/3 spar. However spar tends to create white spots. I let my carvings dry for about a week before I finish it. If it cracks it's normal. Big cracks I'll glue wedges and trim them to blend in. Then restain or color.

  9. Wood spirit trio

    They are and great time killer! They aren't too bad as soon as the concept is gripped. I started out with a book published by Lora S. Irish. A great artist who's got lots of talent. She is very well known and has perspective down to a tee. Her art and drawings are by far awesome.
  10. Wood spirit trio

    From the album chainsaw carving

    Made from sassafrass. This carving has been done by all hand grinders. Not one chainsaw even though it is under chainsaw carving. Some grinders use a chain blade in different diameters including a 2" wheel. Enjoy!
  11. Echo eagle

    From the album chainsaw carving

    Still have a ways to go. This eagle will have much more detail and is for my father in law because he likes echo chainsaws. Lots to do yet but I figured I'd share It! Thanks for looking!
  12. Cherry barrel bear

    From the album chainsaw carving

    Made this for a new neighbor since we moved. I dont have all my tools.... but they are on their way! Its secluded where i am so now i can concentrate more!!!
  13. Cherry barrel bear

    Thank you!
  14. Echo eagle

    Thank you! I think the fun parts are 1. Being just a log and 2 the end result. I love before and after pics!
  15. Cherry barrel bear

    Yes it's for a girl who is special needs. As I see it everything in her world is intelligent. She thinks with the high end of her brain. We use 2 steps... one being a survival mode the other being high end. She is just plain awesome. She lives without chaos. Simple things please her such as animals etc. So what would be a good way to be good to a neighbor like that??? Simple carve her an animal!
  16. Wood spirit trio

    Hi John! Kind of, however I just got my detail saw in today. All geared up for detail finally. But you can do it all with mini grinders ,Sanders ,dremels, just takes a ton to do unless you got a good game plan.
  17. Echo eagle

    Thank you Lew . Hey moving closer to you lol. I'm now in johnstown/ Richland area. Nice quiet place to carve!

  19. Bear paw print

  20. Easter door topper

    From the album Religious scroll projects

    Did this in two nights. Needs a frame with a stand. 32" long which was a bear to cut in a 20" throat. Thanks for looking! Prowess Carving
  21. Easter door topper

    Thanks to all. This is getting "framed" too. So it sits above the door. A different project because of using 360º blades the whole time. That's in part due to the length is past the cut throat of the saw. You must use delicate and precision control on the saw cutting in all directions. very tough to do. Hard on saw too but if gentle it's all good. I have a Christmas door topper I'll do when we move. Got to pack shop up soon. The door toppers look awesome on a shelf with subtle light.... uplighting the project.
  22. Bear paw print

    I think the color combo with the frame is very rustic. Perfect for a hunting room or per say a great room in a cabin. Hunter green with light wood is usually used in many timberframe homes too.
