Step 4: work out the fine structure
Now it’s time to add detail to your owl carving, using the chainsaw to carve wings, a face and feathers.
With a carving chainsaw you can do a great job of bringing out the specific anatomical features of an owl’s face. First use your chalk to draw a vertical line marking the centre of your owl’s face, and remove wood in a V shape on both sides of the line. Next, use careful movements to add contours that bring out the eyes and beak.
