Carved birdhouses [View all]

Last edited Sat Mar 28, 2020, 05:17 PM - Edit history (1)

A few birdhouses carved with a chainsaw. I make a lot of these in normal times a month from now we would start going to art and craft shows where I sell them among many other pieces.

After carving I burn them with a torch, brush and sand. Apply color, some I leave natural. Then put deck and siding preservative on.

I made this video using electrics in the shop all my smaller stuff I use electric. Big carvings are done outside with gas saws
