There are a few things to consider before you begin utilising chainsaws to create one of kind sculptures and furniture. Before you commence the practice, it is crucial to ensure that you have the appropriate safety gear accessible to prevent any injuries. Protective clothing such as chainsaw chaps, eye protection and ear muffs should always be worn.
It is also imperative to ensure that you are using the right chainsaw for the job. Depending on the creation that you are hoping to achieve, you may need to incorporate a variety of different length saws. A larger saw is best to use at the commencement of your project, or when you need to remove large chunks, while smaller saws are the perfect tool for detailing. You also need to be aware of the sharpness of the chain that you are using, as a blunt chain can impede the final design.
Husqvarna chainsaws are built with the best technology, and are perfect for those wanting to master the art of chainsaw carving. The Husqvarna 540i XP battery chainsaw
is a perfect start, due to its ease of use, no direct operator emissions, robust and durable design. It can also be fitted with a Husqvarna carving bar that has a smaller nose radius, making it a perfect choice for sculpting and other precision work. Additionally, our in-house developed, advanced brushless motor is 25 % more efficient than a standard brush motor. This means that the motor provides high and consistent torque.
It is also essential to remember that chainsaw carving is a lengthy process and takes time to perfect. The key to perfecting the art is to break down the project, and to remove smaller sections over big ones. However, anything is possible with a 540i XP Husqvarna chainsaw no matter your level of expertise. You can follow Husqvarna guy Bob’s instructions below to carve your own chair!
