My father does something similar with the stumps in his yard after he cuts down a tree. He carves his bears with a chainsaw though, so probably not as detailed. Good job.

nice stuff I’ve often thought of attempting a carving with a chainsaw, At the lucas county fair here in toledo ohio there’s a husband and wife duo that carves bears in front of everyone with chainsaws , the bears are usually about like 3’ high they do this with such speed and to detail. I really respect that form of art.

-- I love this site !

Very nice work Robert. I have yet to try the chainsaw to carve.
