In this post I will show you how to do Chainsaw Carving Bear more specifically Laying Bear Wood Carvings Step By Step. Stay with me.
Process of Laying Bear Wood Carvings
First I Take off the slab so log lies flat
Then Start rounding rump end and angle front ahead of where head will go about one fourth of the log
I then clean off bark on the top and blend into both ends
Cut blunt nosed triangle for head Deeper toward nose, shallower toward back of head, maybe about “ear deep.”
Step cut in ears and shape neck to the back of head
Step cut in the nose and sides of nose from the head mass, also angle off behind ears
Cut out block along side of head down to paw thickness, then cut out V between front paws
Draw on legs a circle for haunch with a small oval for foot, then a nice meaty L for the front leg
Outline and shape around legs raising them above the bears stomach
Hold your chainsaw high to make U shaped crescents for the eyes, carve fur, claws, and other details. Takes approximately 45 minutes to carve a 3′ bear.
Good luck. Doc Parker
