A chainsaw, a torch and a flap sander- that’s it. A break from the faces- only for a moment, though :) I love all of the various styles and approaches one can take to wood carving. The possibilities are endless and the fun is indescribable! I have not polyurethaned these carvings yet, so they appear a little more dull than what they will when finished. Wood is good!

Very nice work. My brother would love to have all of these at his log cabin on the river.

Nice work, you might want to tighten that chain up though, tough on the bar and higher chance of the chair riding off the end of the bar.

Thanks guys! Hi TechTeacher04, with a carving bar (dime tip) you don’t want the chain to be nearly as tight as a crosscut chain or a ripping chain. Because the tip of the bar is primarily used, a lot of heat is created and if the chain is too tight (or very tight at all for that matter) then lots of friction is created and the chain will make grinding sounds. I’ve let them get much looser than this on the dime tips and only once have I had the chain come off of the bar. I do know what you mean, though, when it comes to standard chains- they should definitely not be this loose :)
