Terry is a chainsaw woodcarver.
He has done all sizes of carvings, but one of his newer challenges is [really] SMALL.
He did not use a chainsaw for these. He used a scroll saw and dremel.
He had an order for a wolf carved from a block of cherrywood supplied by the customer.
This is what it looked like (the block was 11" x 10" x 1 3/4")
The challenge was the thickness... not easy.
The photos will show the process:
He actually did a practice piece first, which turned out to be more of a fox.
Since the first one came out looking more like a fox,
he carved a second practice piece out of cedar to get it to be more of a wolf.
Then, when he did it with the actual cherrywood, he had the wolf down pretty good:
And then, the customer wanted it oiled: (to highlight the cherrywood)
Finished, they are about 5.5" tall (the body only) x 10.5" length.
thanks for visiting!
