Which one is the bear?!?

I love it Jim. Hey by the way I just moved to Lincolnton and I have a huge stump outside my dinning room window that begs to be carved into something. What time of year are you in NC and if I buy lunch will you make the trip down to talk about a project? I would love to own a Calder.

This is something I have always wanted to try. Great job.

Great project. I’m pretty sure you didn’t carve that one with a pocket knife. As many others have said, I love your work

Used to work for a guy that said “you can make anything with a chainsaw and a grinder”. Nice job!

Great carving. I wish more of the chainsaw carvers would share.
