Unique Ideas Chainsaw Art

Welcome to my gallery of art! Please take your time and browse. I hope I can interest you in one of my “Unique Ideas”. Or, maybe there is an idea of your own that you would like to suggest. Most of my carvings are by special order to create exactly what the customer wants. My interior designs can add a special touch to any house, cabin or cottage. If you really want to be creative, you can do what I did to my own home and turn the dreary basement into a very unique recreation room. My talents are unlimited. Maybe an entertainment center with lion end posts is your request, along with a lion coffee table to match. I will give each and every request some thought and see what we can come up with. My landscape scenes also add a new twist . . .  two or three life-like carvings around a pond, fountain or waterfall will literally stop traffic.

There is no method of drying or seasoning wood used for carving. Therefore, some checking (cracking) could occur.  I use half-logs or place stress relieving cuts on the piece when I can. This helps to reduce the amount and size of checks. Some types of wood check more than others. Pieces kept indoors will check more than those kept outdoors.  Most people find this adds character to their wood sculpture.
