I carved this bear head in a piece of Eastern White Pine. I used a small chainsaw for the entire carving. I torched and sanded a bit to get the colors I was going after. I have an old router bit that I hollowed out to create the eyes. I used a little bit of black and white paint to highlight a few spots.
This carving is 20” tall, 12” wide and 9” thick.

Just so everyone knows, I’m not your typical woodcarver. I don’t stick with the same set of tools all the time- I use chainsaws for larger projects like this one, but also enjoy using the tiniest of hand-carving tools to create super-detailed hand carvings (like the faces that I carve). I like to change things up and keep my mind and body moving. Hope your day is awesome!
