Chainsaw artist

Hi folks. I'm new to your forum. I am a chainsaw artist from Colorado. I am going to expand my skills into the area of rustic log furniture making. I am hoping to gain knowledge of how to acheive this as well as share whatever I can in the areas that I am knowledgable. I am a member of the Cascade Chainsaw Sculpters Guild, and I frequent the chainsaw carvers forum on Network 54. Thank you for reading.

Welcome, ditto what Jake said about pictures. My avatar is about the extent of my chainsaw carving abilities , far from artistic.

Ditto x 3 on the pics. Like your handle.

I'm doing some chanisaw carving today again all day. Out in the woods carving trees into sawlogs.

Like Daren that's about as close as I come to artistry with one too.

Welcome.

HI also new here. If you would like to try your hand at making rustic looking furniture great. ever hear of diamond willow? unique wood has diamond shapes when you strip the bark off would make great furniture not to mention how much it would be worth after you are done with a piece.

Welcome to the forum. I've never made anything with a chainsaw, but some of my earlier projects looked like they ran into the business end of a chainsaw.

A friend of mine that has moved on to more permanent things was a chainsaw carver. He did things with a chainsaw, and a set of chisels that were amazing. I wish I had some of his stuff. He made Wooden Indians, like the old Cigar Store Indians that you had to glance twice at just to be sure...

I would definately love to see pics of your work.

Interested in my woodworking, workshop and whatnot? See http://daves-workshop.blogspot.com, want to see my other interests such as hunting, fishing, off roading, and camping? See http://wildersport-outdoors.blogspot.com
