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.
