Hi All,

I’m a new member here, so I figured I’d post a bit about myself.

I’m a wood carver from New Jersey in the USA, and I’ve been carving full time for a little over 4 years. I have a small retail store where I sell my work, and I’m just now starting to explore selling my carvings online.

A new project for me is starting up Carvinglife has been a dream of mine for a while, after so many people have asked “how do you do that with a chainsaw?” I decided to start a website to teach those interested, and to provide useful news to carvers and others interested.

Basically my goal is to create a site that helps people learn about chainsaw carving, try it if they’d like to, or admire from afar. Either way I’m excited for what is to come when the site is ready, hopefully in the fall of 08.

On another note, I’ve been looking into more traditional woodworking as a hobby, and I think lumberjocks is going to help catapult me in that direction. Feel free to email me or add me as a buddy!

Thanks for checking out my stuff, I’ll be posting a bunch more carvings soon!

Looking forward to the website! Chainsaw carving is on my ‘try-to-do’ list but I just never got to it yet. Your website sounds like just what I need to get started!

Welcome to LumberJocks!

I could really use a chain saw sculptor!! I have 4 stumps in my yard that I would love to see carved into…non-existence….or maybe a likeness of a smurf with a broadsword.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.
God Bless

Hi & welcome! You seem like a nice enough guy. I’m glad you got here after I said what I said about carvers! If I’m ever out your way I’ll bring you a piece of the catalpa. Next june to wildwood is the next scheduled trip, but I may have a real delivery before then. Good luck, Ted.

Welcome, I found this to be one of the greatest websites out there. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have. As a fellow carver (chip carver), I look forward to seeing you work.

Hello Tim

Welcome to Lumberjocks. I am also a new member. I have done some chainsaw carving, usually at the start of a carving project, using a 4 inch chainsaw for my grinder. It works great for me since I do not have the strength to use a regular chainsaw for any great length of time.

Looking forward to your website.

Check out my posting of my carvings, the Indian Maiden was all hand carving. The larger carving was roughed
out strictly using the 4 inch chainsaw.

I am presently carving a fireplace mantel.
