This is a commissioned piece that I just finished. This German Shepherd is nearly lifesize:) It was quite a challenge but I am very pleased with it and so is the customer!

I see the model sitting on the block of wood but where is the carving?

Great work!

At first glance I thought you had carved a little platform for your puppy, Nova! Then I realized the shadows were a bit off … GOOD JOB!

Hope you have been prospering. Looks like you’re sculpting vs. carving with the chain saw. Did you use your feet? LOL!

Really beautifully done Josh. Just curious as to what model chainsaw, and type of bar you are working with?
