The Eagle book gives you and good direction to go. Gives all the set up steps for taking the big chunks of wood off.Then down to the nitty gritty of carving. Good book to add to your collection of info.
Gave this book as a gift to my great son-in--law who has already made several wonderful carvings without any instruction. He was very happy to receive the book. I like that the many techniques used to create the eagle are easily transferred to chainsaw carvings in general.
Following directions from a book is not such an easy thing, but like almost all books, you walk away a little "richer" than you were before you read it. Don't expect miracles to happen, and you won't regret buying the book. It does have some useful value to a chainsaw carver.
Can't believe I haven't reviewed this book yet. I love Jamie & Dennis' step-by-steps. Funny, but they work. I don't like "project" books in any other art form, but in chainsaw carving, it works. Perhaps because so very few people carve.Find a log, follow the steps, and commit to making two carvings. The first one might not be completely an eagle--it will be a bird, but depending on how well you understand what you're doing, your friends might think it's a pelican, or something else. (With any luck at all, not a sparrow...) But after you get the feel for where Jamie's going, your second carving will be spot-on.If don't already know this--you'll do much better with a carving bar than a saw with a stock tip, but if your only saw came from a big-box hardware store, you can do reasonably well. Do get safety equipment--chaps, at the least, steel toe boots too--and let yourself carve without worrying as much.
I think this is a great learning tool. I have been chainsaw carving for 14 years and still have much to learn. For someone of my experience this book is fine, but if you are some what new at carving you may not understand all the steps as they are not all shown. However if you are at all intelligent you will figure it out. The cover and pages of this book have a coating on them that is some what plastic like so that makes it ideal to take out to your carving stump. It is some what oil proof! Great design and user friendly.
I bought this book for my husband who wanted to learn how to chainsaw carve. We ended up doing it together. I would read, he would chainsaw. The directions are excellent and easy to understand. Photos included are perfect and help a lot. We were very satisfied with this book and have bought another in this series.
This is a great book very detailed and it shows step by step how to carve a eagle.
I bought this book for my husband and he really enjoyed it. He wants to learn how to carve things using a chainsaw. I am a little scared but he is so excited!!
