I carved this pup using a chainsaw and a few other tools. He measures 25” tall, 11” wide and 8” thick. I started off with a chunk of White Pine and began shaping with a little, Stihl MS 180- a very versatile and aggressive saw when used with a 1/4” pitch chain.
Next, I smoothed things out with a flap sander, and then fuzzed everything up again with a wire brush on a drill. I carved the eyes and detailed the nose using a Dremel bur. The only paint I used was some black for the eyes and white for the eyes and top of nose. The rest of the color was achieved using a torch.
This was a very fun project for me, and I intend on carving some more dogs after this one!
