This is a chainsaw carving. Almost all of the work, while creating this carving, was done by my hands and a chainsaw. I used a small knife for the nose and eyes. Almost all of the color was achieved using a torch. I also used a tad bit of paint. I sealed this carving with Ready Seal. It protects from the elements, so this carving can go indoors or outdoors.
This carving is made of dry wood. I used a special drying process, a dehumidifier kiln that I built, that removes most of the moisture from the wood. The moisture content is less than 10%. This process helps to ensure that the wood won’t develop large cracks. There can still be small cracks that form, depending on the humidity of where the carving is placed. The drying process also greatly reduces the weight of the carving.
Everything in my shop is made by hand, by me, Josh.
This carving will look great on a table, at an entryway, in the kitchen, or any other place that needs a little bear :)

My carvings can be cleaned using many different methods. A feather duster works nicely. Compressed air (duster or air compressor) also works well. If on a porch or indoors, my carvings will never need a new coat of sealer. Chainsaw carvings that are outdoors will need a fresh coat of sealer each year.
