The art of chainsaw carving is elaborate and exhilarating. The event became renowned in the 1980s after a world championship competition in the United States. Since then, chainsaw carvers construct intricate designs resulting in truly unique and one of a kind pieces.
There are a few things to consider before you begin utilising chainsaws to create one of kind sculptures and furniture. Before you commence the practice, it is crucial to ensure that you have the appropriate safety gear accessible to prevent any injuries. Protective clothing such as chainsaw chaps, eye protection and ear muffs should always be worn.
It is also imperative to ensure that you are using the right chainsaw for the job. Depending on the creation that you are hoping to achieve, you may need to incorporate a variety of different length saws. A larger saw is best to use at the commencement of your project, or when you need to remove large chunks, while smaller saws are the perfect tool for detailing. You also need to be aware of the sharpness of the chain that you are using, as a blunt chain can impede the final design.
