Default Fairy tree

This is a Chainsaw CNC combination piece.

I get a more than a few folks at the chainsaw yard that want Fairies and Gnomes carved in their Tree stumps. The particular customer wanted a very detailed fairy in a knot in tree carved from essentially a straight tree stump.

Below is the journey.

The first picture is an 8" x 20" model I carved for approval.

2nd is the painted version.

3rd picture is the model in Aspire

4th picture is the larger carving ready to get inserted in the tree. this is scaled up to match the place in the tree that I prepared for it. She envisioned a small tree with a large oversized knot hole / burl, with a fairy stepping out.

5th Picture is the carving inserted in the stump and I have started carving around the cnC piece to blend it in to the tree. A couple more days with the chainsaw onsight now to wrap this up.

6th pic model is the model after I made several corrections to how the model actually carved on the CNC. If you look at the earlier pictures she had problems around her eyes and how the leaves hung on her waste. Stuff I did not see until I hit the carve button.

last pic is the tree from further back.. more carving to come and several more CNC elements to be blended into the log to wrap it up. several more leaves will be CNC'ed and used to cover up any seam that is visible after the final clean up..

I've long said that chainsaws are precision woodworking tools.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.
