I remember seeing my first chainsaw carving and thinking "I want to do that some day". I photographed carvings in my travels and researched the topic on the internet but found that I still had no idea where to start. In 2007 I was fortunate to be able to attend a three day workshop given by a professional carver. I now assist with the camp and promote the art in our area and I enjoy helping others get started in this great "art form". Russ Kubara aka "ROOSTER"

A 12 inch "dime tip" carving bar mounted on an MS170 equiped with a 1/4 pitch sprocket and 1/4 RMS chain makes an excellent entry level saw.
Along with a 32+cc, 14", saw for blocking you are ready for carving logs up to 12 inches (30cm).
