Had a big ole walnut log that I chainsawed into chunks a couple years ago with a bright idea that never came about (you're safe Scott). This piece was 2 3/4" thick for the most part, so I carved an owl on one side, then had the other side with plenty of wood in between so i put an eagle on it. Have no idea what I'll do with it, but I'm sure some time, some place, some one will offer to buy it.

That must have taken a while to cut. How long?

David
Not really, David.. he made it a point to show it to me today, telling me how I could do this, (in this time-frame.. I forget what it was, but it wasn't long LOL) if I just get a CNC LOL He's bent on getting me to get one of those.... :laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:

I love the Eagle. So beautiful.

About 45 minutes a side. Could have been faster but I was a little leary with having to put shims under the slab and clamping (ended up using C clamps since the bed is still open) to make it as level as possible, I used 180 ipm for both the rough and finish cuts.

Could very well be. But I've never seen a cherry log that big around before.

Saw a cherry tree at least 2 foot thru when I was a kid, grew about 6 feet from our house. In Michigan. Like it here a lot better, among other things a LOT less snow.

You hang that from the ceiling, and let it rotate.

I'm glad you didn't skim cut the surface and chose to leave the chainsaw marks, it adds a lot of character to the carving. Great use of that chunk of wood by the way.
