i am from australia and im very interested in doing stool/chair etc cutting exabitions, with my chain saw at some of our wood /lumber carnivals,,, but i dont know how to cut them out.
can any one help me with different designs/ styles of chairs/ stools etc that i could do as a demonstration.

i would need to have the system in step by step diagrams so that it is easieer for me to follow and as a later reference or in video format.

the wood to be cut is a poplar and has a prepared diameter varying from12 inches (300mm)to24inches(600mm)and a lenght of 24 inches or (600mm).

There have been several blogs posted on chainsaw carving. Here is one posted by Tim who may be able to help you with this technique. Feel free to send him a private message as I am sure he is more than willing to help you as he can.

If you want to look at other posts just do a search (upper right side of the page) for chainsaw carving.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for sending him my way Scott! I actually have a video coming up on my blog that is just what he’s looking for, so it worked out pretty cool.

Thanks again!
