-Leaf through pages of beautiful finished pieces by the top chainsaw artists in the country.
The works of 23 chainsaw carvers are featured in this book. You'll find that everything imaginable can be created by a skilled chainsaw artisan - from glass-topped tables to stately bed frames, from old world Santa's to beautiful mermaids, from attacking grizzlies to soaring eagles.... The Author has even used a chainsaw to carve a life-sized wooden replica of Ronald McDonald.
-Learn how to make your own chainsaw art.
What chainsaw should I use? Are there different chainsaw carving bars available? Where do I start? The author answers all your questions with a section on chainsaw basics. Step-by-step projects show you how to create "scratch drawings," relief and pierced relief carvings, step cut carvings, life-sized three-dimensional carvings and totem poles.
-Find out how a chainsaw can make you money.
The author has been running his own successful chainsaw carving business, Timbercrafts, for more than a decade. He shares with you some of his biggest projects and tips for making chainsaw carving your main source of income.
Hal MacIntosh made his first chainsaw carving-a wooden goose decoy-in the mid-1960s. Since then, he has published two books (The Tree Climbers Guide Book and The Chain Saw Craft Book), written a number of articles on chainsaw carving for special-interest magazines, and made thousands upon thousands of chainsaw carvings. He runs his own business, called Timbercrafts, and his work has been commissioned by designers for businesses and private homes across the country.
