  • Carving a small bear from cut off

    So here it is, a pictorial of how I carved a small bear from my scrap. It might be a little hard to follow without any narration to the pictures. I hope this might be of some help to those just starting to use chainsaw to carve. Remember to always follow safety procedures when carving.
    Take Care,
    Bob

    I would really appreciate feed back, both good and bad. I am not a computer person so this was a learning experience.
    Thank You
    Bob

      That was great, seeing the progression makes it easier to understand. I think the same pics could be used as a guide for even a handcarved bear. Thanks!!!

          Thanks Bob. This was very interesting and I definitely understand the magnitude of accomplishing this being computer challenged. Thanks for taking the time to do this for us. I agree with the others that it's formatted good enough to use as a manual carving too. Good stuff.

            Thanks for sharing the WIP photos...it's a very interesting process. I've always admired how people can carve with chainsaws. The bear came out great!

              Great presentation Bob! I don't know which I admire the most ;.. your carving skills or your ability to figure out how to post that many pictures on one post.
              I agree with all the others here, the sequence of cuts that you use can be used by others no matter if the tool of choice is a Husqvarna, a hand axe or a Flex Cut knife.
              Thanks for taking the time to make this post .

                Hi Bob
                I am not a chain saw operator, but I can sure see how this presentation will help me make my first bear

                  I too, admire you chainsaw carvers, you did great on the pictures too. When your done you might consider sending your images and explanation to Woodcarving Illustrated Magazine. It's very rewarding to see your carvings on the pages of WCI. I have submitted twice and had my carvings published. Just a thought.

                              wow, for a complete beginner like me, best thread ever. Could anyone point me to any other step by step guides on other sites, youtube? As a beginner I'm quite perplexed by what I understand to be called the 'blocking' steps to take to get something looking decent. Hopefully I can adjust this to make a badger someday
