Greg, Sure looks like a racoon to me. You could'of told me the carving was 4 inches high, and I still would have said very nice little racoon. Matter of fact if you didn't tell me it was a chain saw carving, and told me the measurements I would have just thought it was done with knife and palm chisels. As far as chain saws go, I' m afraid to use one, even on fire wood. Great job, Tom H

If this is your first attempt Greg ... your definately have a future in chainsaw work ..

That is a great looking Racoon ... and coming out of the stump just gives it that look ...

That's a great looking little guy! Careful, where there's one raccoon, there's usually more! They can become addictive.
