  • Just carved to finished

    In the pictures you can see what the carving looks like by just chainsaw alone, and then after it's cleaned up and a few details added. Details placed in with grinders.

            People are always surprised that the finished pieces are done with a chainsaw. So I thought I would show how far I can get with the chainsaw before I use other tools. I prefer to keep them as much chainsaw as possible.
            Thanks for the kind words.

                Finishing a chip carving is just as important as the carving. A poor finishing job will make the painstaking effort of the carving project look junky. There are several ways to finish your chip work. The two most common are the clear finish and the stained finish. I use a polyurethane spray finish in satin. First apply two light coats and the after it has dried lightly sand with a 220 grit sandpaper. You can now add stain. Use a polyurethane gel stain like MInwax gel stain. After the stain has dried you can add several more coats of spray finish to your taste. If you prefer not to stain, just add as many coats of polyurethane finish as you see fit for a natural look. Try this approach on a practice piece first to make sure you are happy with the results. Dennis and Todd Moor have some great books and videos on the subject of chip carving.
