Wood Art - Chain Saw

If you think, you can only get detailed figurines, carving wood with knives and chisels, you better take a look at this video.

Chain saw art is not that old. It finds it origin in the 1950's and started out, with carving a name in to a tree. In the 60's, chain saw dealers promoted the product by having one of their employees carve a simple object out of a piece of wood. This was to demonstrate how light-weight and how easy to use the chain saw was. From there on, this form of art has taken a flight. This art form has been applied along the Gulf Coast. After the hurricanes, many trees were down and instead of removing the remainder of the trunk, chain saw artists created the most amazing sculptures, like these dolphins. Since so many people have taken up chain saw carving, several guilds have been formed for chain saw artists. The Cascade Chainsaw Sculptors Guild (CCSG), which is a nonprofit organization, was founded by a group of chainsaw artist back in 1986 and the United Chainsaw Carvers Guild, founded in 2002. Handling a chain saw may not be for everybody and you have to be careful. I am pleased to see to see, that besides cutting down a tree and destroying whole forests, it also is used to create beautiful art. See also: Wood Art - Chain Saw Equipment And Safety
