That’s great! Even more imppresive to do it all sideways on such a steep hill! (just kidding). It really looks good and I can’t wait to see the St. Francis! Hoe long does it take you to so something as learge as this?

As scrollgirl said, your work is amazing.
Iv’e seen chain saw carvers while on vacation up in Maine, but they seem to lather their work with linseed oil after carving to prevent major cracks. The sticky result sort of makes one not want to touch them, or bring them indoors.
Your work is much more impressive than what I saw being sold to the tourists. It would be a shame to see big cracks develop in your carvings. If it would not be exposing any of your ‘trade secrets’, how do you deal with this issue?

my trick is to coat the wood with Boracare then seal it with Marine Varnish I prefer Sikkens out lasts others 10 to 1I have carvingsare over 25 years old and still in great shape

Definitely thanks for sharing Wizzard. I have a good amount of respect for those who carve. I’m a straight-line kinda guy, so the curves and details in your project just amaze (dumbfound?) me.
