By the way, do not do it if you are a beginer with the chainsaw.
And be very very careful!!!

Is it going to be a Bear? Ursus?

I think you are time zone challenged!

Don’t stop posting. I want to see the outcome!

Yes it is going to be a bear. But not animal. Rather Teddy bear.
Thanks for your comment.

Thanks for the post, Jiri. I admire those woodworkers who can carve like this.

Do you have to use a special chain on the saw or is this simply one that is available off the shelf? It just seems to me that I have seen a reference for a chain that was designed for carving.

This is going to be an interesting and informative post.

Thanks for your comment. All this was done with a standard chain. A use Husqvarna 55 with a standard chain or ripping chain and minor one Husqvarna 55 which was equiped with a bar and chain for chainsaw carving.

how dry does the tree have to be before you carve it?

-- The CNC machine can either produce the work of art you imagined, or very decorative firewood.

Thanks for your comment.

Romansfivefive
this tree was two years old. The first year it was stored in the open air on rain but protected from sunshine. It must not lay on ground.
The second year it was stored in the shed.
Certainly it is not dry enough a cracks will appear.
Thanks for your comment.
