-Get inspired to create your own chalnsaw art with the help of author and artist Hal MacIntosh as he guides you through the chainsaw basics and step-by-step projects that show you how to create "scratch drawings," relief and pierced relief carvings, step-cut carvings, life-sized three-dimensional carvings, and totem poles.

An extended photo gallery features the works of 23 chainsaw carvers, and this expanded edition includes new projects with detailed line drawings that show you how to make eight craft projects out of one log, as well as benches, planters, and fire wood holders.

You'll find that everything imaginable can be created by a skilled chainsaw artisan—glass-topped tables, stately bed frames, old-world Santas, soaring eagles and more.

“Long considered one of woodcraft's more interesting (and more dangerous) parlor tricks, chainsaw carving is familiar to most people. However, until now there has been very little, if any, how-to information for beginners unfortunate for such a potentially risky craft.

MacIntosh, a professional chainsaw carver since the 1960s, shows how to select and care for a saw and how to complete a number of basic cuts. He offers step-by-step instructions for making a life-sized heron, a bear's head, and a three-dimensional log cabin scene. The colorful gallery showing the work of MacIntosh and a number of other artists is striking in both its beauty and its diversity.

There is a short but pragmatic section on safety. This fascinating title will round out large public library collections.”
