Everyone seemed to like the “Babe’s in Toyland” solider – this carving is another piece by our chainsaw carver Bob Eigenrauch. Bob doesn’t generally show off, and most of the time doesn’t realize just how talented he actually is. So, I figure it’s my duty to solicit and pass on a bit of feedback from some of his peers on a few projects to make sure he knows he’s up to par.
My father taught him to carve 20 some odd years ago … and he had dropped out of contact for a while until he reappeared with a rather extensive portfolio of chainsaw carvings. We’ve probably got a couple hundred images of different pieces we can slowly post.
This was pretty creative – take a bear. Give it a fish … and then give the fish a frog. I never looked to see if the frog had a fly … but it wouldn’t surprise me.
These are mostly done in pine, green logs, made for outdoor display. Paints are some acrylics, oils, latex, whatever really. They are sealed in a varnish or water seal.
More to follow!
