What I’m making.
To begin roughing out the general shope from a basic block hewn with a chainsaw, I use a handsaw and a jig to start it at the right angle.
It works well. Outlining what will be a shoulder.
The line of the legs. Using different jig angle, 70 degree
More work on the shoulders, chest, back areas.
That’s eight cuts in all.
Split head out from shoulders, trim off legs.
The Phase I finished blank.
This is coming along great! I imagine the jigs are helpful, especially when you are not used to using chainsaws.
