I carved this tree scene in a piece of American Chestnut. The camera didn’t pick up all of the detail in the trunk in all of the pictures for some reason. The first picture shows it best.
This carving is around 15” tall, 9’ wide and 3/4” thick.
I began this carving by drawing out the original design onto the wood. Then, I used my bandsaw and Jigsaw to remove wood from the negative spaces. I did all of the shaping and detailing using rotary hand tools (primarily burs in a Foredom), grinders and my mini belt sander. I finished this carving with 3 coats of spray satin urethane.
