Some of you know I've started a new hobby this spring.  Its a hell of a lot of fun, loud, messy, pisses off many of the neighbours but I don't care!

 

CHAINSAW CARVING!

 

Ive got a knack for doing Moose.  Love it, I make from them about 4 feet to 7 feet tall.

Haha maybe in the spring I'll try plecos. Painting/staining them would be a pain and I hate that part of it.

I think Im officially done carving for the season now, too freakin cold, and getting stain to dry is a very very long process.

Moose season is over, I do know a lot of ppl who did really well this year for moose though, which is good cause deer season SUCKED in this area.  So many wolves apparently.

 

Got a foot of snow since last night, hoping the mild weather doesn't come as bad as they are forecasting, really want to get out on the sled!

This winter has really sucked, where I live we usually have about 3-4 feet of snow on the ground by now, and the lakes have 2 plus feet of ice.  Not so this year.  Maybe 8" of snow and the ice on the lakes is very sketchy so that means the winter activities are lacking.  SOOOOOO, I've been firing up my chainsaws and getting some moose started for the spring.  This is just rough blocking stage, they still need sanding, eyes added, antlers, and some more detail with the saws, and of course stain and sealer, but at least its something to do. Looks pretty funny seeing so many of them when I open my shed door. Hoping to have 20+ ready for the spring.   Anyone with a cottage interested in a moose?  They start at $250 ea. (4 foot)

I am for sure going to do one thats holding a beer!   and another with a golf club over his shoulder as well.  Just picked up a couple big logs today that may work well for holding beer :)

Thanks,

 

Yes white and red pine.   Holds up well to the elements, and is soft.  White pine is nicer then red, lighter to lug around, and seems softer.  

 

Balsam and spruce etc, sucks, its so full of sap, its like getting a shower all over your legs and body while carving it.

 

Cedar is nice as well, but not as much of that around here thats a decent size.  Plus I get all my wood for free for the most part :)

 

Surprised my wife hasn't said anything out the amount of wood growing in my driveway LOL (the dolly is 4', most the logs are around 4-6')
