dunno if this will work

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I've made a start on the school project, carving time is about 14 hours so far, hope to get a bit quicker. List is: dog, mouse, lighthouse, tortoise, owl, swan, caterpillar, butterfly.



Not all of them are finished yet, but I am pleased with the mouse and the swan.

Having lots of fun as I've never used a chainsaw before. Am sequencing the carvings in order of difficulty, the tiger and kangaroo will prove challenging, as will Red Riding Hood and the wolf -will be breaking in the dime-tip by Wednesday I think. The project is a bit different to the 30 mushrooms I'd planned on doing ☺

Hi guys, the project Is all done, here are a couple of snaps of most of the pieces. The school specified the carvings to be supplied in the white, and from school trees that had been lopped - a willow and a Norwegian maple. No big logs, all less than 2 foot long and under a foot diameter.

I'd be very grateful for any criticisms you guys want to throw my way, Andrew
