The carving is just fabulous on the guitars.

I would love to know how they protect the chainsawn log work from cracking. Or maybe they just show photos of the the work new before it gets a chance to crack. I have been turning some 12-14" diameter mushrooms from logs that are green. Or treated with a wax emulsion and aged for a couple of years. Or from spars -- standing trees that have been dead for two or more years but are not rotting. Mine have all cracked badly. I will have to peruse the techniques that chainsaw carvers use for the control of cracking, so far I have only researched along turning lines. Thanks for the new direction of thought.
