Above- One minute video showing how to carve a Cylinder
Below- Step by step instruction
Use a layout jig & chainsaw to make a rectangle 9″ x 9″ x 20″
Multiply the width of the cylinder by .29 (in this case 9 x .29=2.61)
2.5 is then what you should set your layout jig for
Scribe 8 lines on the rectangle (2 on each of the four 20″ sides)
Using a chainsaw, cut off the corners.
Really focus on your cuts, making sure to not cut into the cylinder & not stray away from the line.
Notice the foam under the carving? This protects your saw
