I used a 4’ piece of fallen Alderwood to create this ‘happy frog’.
It’s one of my most popular pieces and my wife loves it.
I can’t believe I never posted a finished so long ago.

Amazing, I wish I could do something like this, but alas I am too linear.

This was my first Chainsaw carving after my 1 week class.
I’m very happy with it.

Now that is really neat… I agree with Paul M, wish I could do it, but I tend to think in linear motions, square corners, equal measurements… you’ve done a great job!

I too am a linear guy when necessary but after you smell chainsaw fumes for a while the lines sort of get twisted! ;)

Amazing! Never thought of a frog for chain saw carving. You have really captured some great features. From the back It brought back images of Gollum from Lord of the Rings. Nicely done.

Very nice. The details are really good for a chainsaw. I admire your work because I know I couldn’t do anything that small with a chainsaw.

I’ve always wanted to try chainsaw art. Alas my upper body strength will mean I would more likely be carving a limb off my body rather than a log. Truely nice piece of work.
