People have been asking George Kenny to teach them how to carve for years. Chainsaw carving looks easy when you watch carvers at the State Fair. But, go home and try it. You might end up with some firewood or kindling, if your lucky, but probably not a cute bear for the front yard! That is where George Kenny comes in.

George started out his chainsaw carving career 10 years ago with a cheap electric saw and learned from trial and error. There were not any chainsaw carving instructors in the state to help George. However, he stayed with his new profession, and won the Oregon State Chainsaw Carving Championships for his division in 2002. That win gave George the confidence and credentials to start training people in this unique art form.

According to George, “Chainsaw carving is totally unique art form. With some experience and training, in a day you can create several pieces to keep or give away as gifts. You might even sell a few. It is fun to do and everybody loves the cute chainsaw carved bears!”

There are two levels of training. The one-day introductory class will teach the basics of safety and carving design. George will demonstrate step by step the actions and tools needed to make and preserve a bear or eagle chainsaw carving.

The advanced class is a four-day course to help students become a Certified Chainsaw Carver. George will work with the students in a studio environment. The students will finish the course by creating a chainsaw carving to take home with them.

The school is new but several people have already taken the class and created carvings for themselves. The school can be toured while students are being trained, so people can see the students in action. You could even buy one of their masterpieces!

George is available for demos, auctions, events, and as an expert in wood working.
