Quick Chainsaw Carving Tips

Over the 19 years we have been chainsaw carving here at the chainsaw carving school we have seen lots of people go on to enjoy a new hobby while earning some money as a chainsaw carver.

The latest chainsaw carving student who is setting out to make some side money can be seen in this ad.

Way to go Augie.

Chainsaw Carving

If you are interested in chainsaw carving as a hobby, earning a living, or just making some side money here are some tips:

  • Always be safe. Wear chaps, eye protection, and use ear plugs.
  • You don’t have to be a Michelangelo to get started at chainsaw carving. The roughness is part of the charm of chainsaw carving so don’t be such a critic that you think your carvings won’t sell. People love chainsaw art, plain and simple.
  • Practice makes perfect. The more you get out there and carve the better it will work for you. Everybody progresses at their own pace and everybody benefits from practice.
  • Use a soft wood that isn’t brittle. We use Western Red Cedar. Redwood is great too. Both of these woods hold up well to weather and are bug resistant.
  • Keep your chain sharp. You can self sharpen or take it to the local saw shop.
  • Have a variety of saws. You need a big saw in the beginning to lop away the chunks. Move to a smaller saw to do the detailing. We use Echo.
  • Once you are done carving the wood with the saw, go in with a grinder to do some additional detail work.
  • Burn the carving with a propane torch to give the fur the right color.
  • Brush with a wire brush to create a consistent feathering.
  • Oil with a linseed or other oil.

If you have questions simply post them below or call me at 360-710-5250 and I will help you.

Chainsaw Carving Video

Check out this chainsaw carving video featuring one of the best carvers, Bob King.

You can read about chainsaw carving and learn some things but if you really want to get a feel for the art form then watching a chainsaw carving video is the way to go.

As the chainsaw carving video says, Bob King is a class act. Echo is too.

If you get a chance to catch a chainsaw carving show while traveling this great country of ours, do it. It is fascinating to watch the experienced chainsaw carving artists do their thing over a day or two.

Chainsaw Carving Lessons

If you are interesting in chainsaw carving lessons you can receive instruction in several ways.

One is to attend a chainsaw carving event and strike up a conversation with a chainsaw carver during a break. Most carvers just love to chat about what they do. The shows generally have a few to a few dozen chainsaw carvers going so you will have a lot of people to talk to.

Another option is to visit a chainsaw carver’s shop and watch him or her in action. They might be hard to talk to because they are working and earning a living but they do have to take a break from time to time. Most carvers are happy to give you some pointers and share some of the things they have learned. They might not provide you chainsaw carving lessons but they will usually offer tips.

Chainsaw Carving Lessons

Another way, perhaps the best way to learn chainsaw carving, is to take chainsaw carving lessons from a profession chainsaw carving school. There are a few in the country. Ours is in the Pacific Northwest and people come here from all around the world.

With chainsaw carving lessons at a school you will get step by step instructions straight from an experienced chainsaw carver who makes a living at chainsaw carving. Usually over 3 days you will learn what would take years of trial and error on your own. You get not only the mechanics behind chainsaw carving but also the business background on how to make money or even make a living out of chainsaw carving.

If you want more information you can call our chainsaw carving instructor, George Kenny at 360-710-5250.
