This weekend’s project.

Unfortunately, he seems to be quickly developing a split personality…

Looks good, Rob.

Splits go along with the territory.

I’ve always wanted to see a chainsaw carving of a bear using a chainsaw. Have you ever seen one?

This bear looks great. It shows a lot of skill with the chainsaw.

Thanks for the comments.

No, Russ, I can’t say that I’ve ever seen one of those myself.

Good job. I am surprised that there aren’t more chainsaw carvings posted. I am sure that they’re out there.

Good job. Is it your first one?

Next time look for the crack and put it to the rear. A kerf cut down the back will stop cracks as well.

To repair this one make a wedge from the same type of wood and glue it in the crack, then recarve it.

Will try to find the pic, a friend did one of a bear with a saw carving a person.
