2013 CAMP

We introduced eight new carvers to our area, including participants from Saskatchewan, Ontario and Minnesota. We can now call ourselves an "international chainsaw carving camp!" -pictures

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".

Along with a 32+cc, 14" saw for blocking you are ready for carving logs up to 12 inches (30cm). more.......
