that’s some mighty fine detail for a chain saw. Nice work

I love owls and we have a bunch of them calling every night. Your awesome carving looks just like one of the barred owls we have. You have a real talent with the CS carvings.

My chainsaw only makes firewood and saw logs.

Wow, that’s beautiful work. It amazing how a chain saw (in the right skilled hands) can do such beautiful work.

That owl is a ”hoot” ... pardon the pun!

My wife is an owl collector and this one is better than the hand carved one she has!
I really like the details than darkened some areas. Did you burn that or stain it?

Thanks for the comments. I burned the owl and then coated it with boiled linseed oil
