Eagle Chainsaw Carving

I carved this eagle in a piece of Eastern White Pine. I used a chainsaw, torch sanders and a Dremel. Almost all of the work was completed with the chainsaw, but other tools were necessary to get to the look that I desired.

This carving is finished with two coats of UV resistant spar urethane. The spar helps with weathering over time. I like to dilute my spar urethane with paint thinner to keep from getting the carving too shiny. I attached spacers to the bottom of the carving to allow the live wood to dry naturally over time.

This fella’ weighs around 14 pounds and measures 27” tall, with a 13” diameter.

It’s another beautiful piece, Josh. You’ll probably have it sold by the 4th.

Josh,

This is a GREAT sculpted piece. He looks a little like the older wiser Eagle? Might be the guy who watches over your sprite clan.

I’d call him the sage!

He’s an evil looking critter hey!!
Great job though Josh.
Thanks for sharing him.

Bob.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
