  • Owl

    This is one I just finished carving. I glued up the block to increase stability of the wood then chainsaw carved. It's about 90% chainsaw and 10% hand work. It is currently in the finishing process.
    Have a great day,
    Bob

    He is looking great Bob, A lot of fine detail. I'm wondering whooo is going to clean up that mess?
    If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

      What mess, that's clean. LOL If you could only see the whole carving area. I really need to spend some time cleaning the carving pit.

              I thought it was about 6-10 inches tall until I read your post and saw "chainsaw." How big is it?

                The owl is slightly bigger then life size, about 22 inches. This is according to the reference material I have. Overall, its about 24 inches with the Base. I guess the customer is mounting it in a tree.

                        Well this is the finished pic of the owl. I played around using the airbrush. The eyes are a little off, but by the time I really noticed I was to far along and didin't want to screw it up. Live and learn. Hope you enjoy and any thoughts are welcome.
                        Thanks

                          I think he just has his head tipped a little bit, looks good.

                          Question, how wide does your airbrush spray?

                            Thanks for the input. The airbrush I used was a single action top siphon model. It would give me a one inch pattern when I thinned the paint right. I'm not much of a painter, this was the frist carving I completely painted with an airbrush. I usuaul would use it to add some shadows in other carvings and that was it.
                            Again Thanks for the input,
                            Bob

                              If you hadn't said anything, it would have been very difficult to notice the slight difference. But not everything that mother natures produces is perfect so I don't think I'd get to worked up about it. Think you did a very nice job on this, carving, painting, all good.
