Latest carving

Recommended Posts

Done this for Rothbury this year delivering tomorrow, will get some pics once installed. Bit of a rush- wanted to do more work on them all- they are pretty simple detail wise, but already done more than i am being paid for time wise. Be interested to know what others would charge for this sort of thing?

 

Carved the lot on makita battery saws apart from major blocking out and sap wood removal. 6 batteries (used in pairs) and you never have to wait for a charge. Really enjoyed no vibes and low noise20191115_104125.jpeg20191120_152403.jpeg20191121_142721.jpeg20191121_161048.jpeg20191121_161130.jpeg20191121_161158.jpeg

Lovely job. Especially the hands and their position. The baby has a serious expression. Can you do a smiling figure for balance?
Thanks, no time left for tinkering with it and not doing anymore so that's just how they will be!

Fantastic. Well done. What wood is it?

I appreciate electric saws are quieter, and I've never really considered the lower vibrations, but I can't stand the whining pitch the electric saws make.

Really impressed, I'm looking at getting one of those makita twin battery saws next.
They are surprisingly good. Obvs not quite a ms200, but carving with a 10 or 12''bar is totally fine, wasnt tempted to pick up my ms200 carver once. I keep reaching for the pull starter everytime i pick it up though. I risked some non original waitley 6ah batteries as they have a 30day no quibble return ( i was pretty sceptical, but are more than half the price of makita ones) and they are totally fine 2 months in, same if not more power ànd last noticeably longer than makita 5ah ones. Also the throttle is not just on off like other electric saws which makes carving possible. The little duc254 is dream with the r7 detail bar as well.
