Fire Tiki Chainsaw Carving

Zdepski's Chainsaw Carving - Fire Tiki Lantern

Fire Tiki God - Lantern. This is my 3rd-ever Chainsaw carving. I hollowed a 4 foot high, 350 lb. White Pine log with branching on the top. I used a Stihl MS170 chainsaw to carve the majority, though my friend's 300 series Stihl was used to split the back and hollow the log. I use chisels to give detail and texture in many places, though it's still basically a Chainsaw carving.

Wow! Incredible job, especially considering it's only your third one. You should be proud of what you've accomplished!
