Is this a performance piece? Is there a result to the process? I can say I’ve never chainsaw’d while the wood was on fire!

I’m reading the expressions on the faces in the crowd. One or two are waiting for the gas-powered chain saw to
meet a flame.
Seriously, you think this is safe enough? Don’t want that name to become boomboomdurocher.

I honestly can’t think of anything cooler than using a chainsaw to carve a piece of burning wood. Seriously.

That’s a really cool technique. I like the contrast between burnt wood and fresh cut wood. My question is what brought it about? Where did “let me carve up this burning tree” come from? I can’t argue with the results, it just seems so out there. I know a lot of folks will hound you about the safety of the process. I will assume you have thought it through and ask what do you use to burn the wood and do you wear anything to keep the smoke from your eyes and lungs.

I look forward to seeing more of these
