I’ve been doing more chainsaw carvings lately and this one is mostly carved with the chainsaw with a bit of clean up with chisels. I believe the two carved ends are maple. Thanks for looking.

I love the use of these to make a bench. I have seen a BUNCH of really cheezy chainsaw carvings, but these are much more appealing that the generic bears that seem to have proliferated every country knick knack store on the planet. Great job showing off that carvings like this can actually be appealing!

Very different
I would like to see them up close and personal as I really dont think that the photos do them any justice.

Thanks for the comments.
As much as I admire the bear carvings done with a chainsaw…that subject simply doesn’t interest me much. I just don’t see a bear when I look at a log.
I appreciate you looking. Thanks again.
