What is Chainsaw Carving Art?
Chainsaw carving art is a method of sculpting that involves the use of a chainsaw to shape and carve wood into complex and detailed designs such as figures and signs. Chainsaw carving is a popular form of art that combines the raw power and speed of a chainsaw with the creativity and skill of a talented artist. Chainsaw carving art is said to have had its start in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States, where there was heavy logging, where loggers used chainsaws to quickly cut down trees. In the 1950’s, some loggers began to experiment with using chainsaws to create sculptures out of the leftover wood. This is where this art style began to gain popularity. Today, chainsaw carving art is practiced all over the world and has evolved into a highly specialized art form, where each artist will develop their own unique technique and style. Artists use a variety of chainsaws, ranging from small handheld models to large industrial machines, to create complex designs that range from animals, figures, and even signs or plaques.
What Wood is Good for Chainsaw Carving Sculptures?
One of the key challenges of chainsaw carving art that makes it even more precious, is the wood itself. Depending on the type of wood, the knots and grain of the wood can sometimes test the skill of the chainsaw artist. The artist must also be skilled in using the chainsaw to create different textures and shapes, as well as in finishing and preserving their creations even when the wood poses a challenge. Finding a quality chainsaw carving artist that can deliver beautiful pieces of art is just another challenge. When you want the novelty of a hand crafted chainsaw carving, it can be hard to find.
