Carving Horses For Beginners – And Yes, With A Chainsaw

Do you know what’s cooler than just having a pet horse out there?

It’s being able to carve a replica of your pet horse on a huge block of wood with a chainsaw.

Yes, you read that right. While most people think that a chainsaw is only meant for cutting down trees and *gulp* body parts in Hollywood movies like “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” this overlooked handy tool can actually be used for carving and other creative woodworks.

And so, here are some tips in carving horses for beginners – and yes, with a chainsaw:

  • Learn the basics. This includes – but not limited to – holding a chainsaw the right way, safety measures when using one, do’s and don’ts when using one, what kind of wood you are going to use, what kind of horse you are going to carve, how tall will the final product be, and just about anything that answers your questions.
  • Equip yourself with the basics. This includes an ordinary chainsaw to make it easier for you to carve and navigate throughout the entire block of wood, any kind of dark pen to help you visualize as you go on with carving the horse model you’ve chosen, and safety gears to prevent serious accidents from using a chainsaw.

Check out more tips, tricks, and guides on chainsaws and using one at sawingpros.

  • Do your research. Even if you have already learned and equipped the basics, there’s always room for more knowledge. A tip? Learn more from others’ experiences and see if you can mix some of their techniques to your own.

See how carving and other creative woodworks with a chainsaw goes for Rick and Sue Cox and David Polk.

  • Most of all, just have fun. If you are carving for the first time, always remember that it’s more important to enjoy what you’re doing rather than forcing yourself to come out of your comfort zone and taking your creativity in woodworking up a notch right away.

Happy carving horses!
