Carved Sculptures

Carving a large Box Elder Burl into a Canyon shape

 

Carving a 7ft tall Mesquite log, weighing approx 1000 lbs
 
Each Chainsaw carved sculpture starts off in the log/burl form. The chainsaw is first used to remove a bulk of the wood and start the design. Being careful to create tunnels, waves, folds and other unique shapes out of the wood. Then various powered carving tools and sanding disks are used to finish up the design and smooth it out before the many hours of sanding and finishing begins. Each piece takes on a life of its own during this whole process. Although an idea takes shape in Scott's mind, sometimes the wood dictates what is going to happen during the carving process. No two are alike, making them a true "One of a Kind" collectors piece.
