Wow, that has to be heavy!! Too big for my splitter.
Wow! Would love to see the finished carving.
Wow, big chunk 'o wood there! What species is it? Kinda looks like oak of some sort.
Ok, I've gotta ask. Whats he carving it into??
I believe it's going to be a heron and a fish, will post a pic if I can.
I would like to see the equipment used to get it to his carving studio!!
He hasn't finished the monster round yet but here is a amusing video of him at work.......
as Rolf Harris said "can you tell what it is yet ?"
He works FAST!!
Why isn't he doing it horizontally?
Gonna need a bigger milk crate Dennis .
Maybe I could ship him one.
Ninja with a chainsaw!
Man that's a big piece of wood. I was offered a couple about that size once, just as big, not as tall, I just laughed. Love to see it when it's done.
How does he move a carving that big to the customer?
it wont be that big when he's finnished
a crane is used to lift it onto a truck.
Maybe he will give you what he cuts away?
That would be good glennm but he has a wood stove too .
Wow, 4 minutes to do all that.
Takes me that long just to get the saw out of the shed.
People who can look at that gaint chunk of wood like that, see the bird and fish inside, and then carve away all the "extra" so that even I can see it - are just amazing! What a gift.
Nearly finnished -
England's got talent.
WOW - what an amazing transformation. Crazy talent.
I was told that oak does not carve well with a chainsaw. It almost looks like pine.
