Masters Of The Chainsaw: About Us
Masters of the Chainsaw is a limited group of the nation’s top professional chainsaw sculptors, dedicated to promoting and preserving the integrity of the art form and it’s performance. At a typical forty five-minute show, from behind protective netting, onlookers will observe an original and captivating high-energy performance. With chain saw roaring and chips flying our carvers' precision and skill, quickly transforms a three-foot tall log into a true work of art. Nearly every show will result with a carving being-produced from start to finish, with as many as four carvings per day and shows lasting up to an hour. The best part of the entire package is that by retaining the carvings for an auction your event can recoup the cost of the carver and even profit handsomely.

In 1992 Masters of the Chainsaw was formed to provide professional representation for chainsaw carvers in the business of carving as a performance art.

Our main focus is the representation of only the finest professional chainsaw saw sculptors. The venues they appear at are fairs, festivals, hardware store grand openings, as well as many other promotional events. The carvers they represent are the very best performance chainsaw artists in the world. The carvers’ artistic ability and speed are not the only criteria they must meet to be one of the Masters of the Chainsaw. They must be of the highest degree of professionalism and of a personable nature befitting their position.

In 1992 we had only 5 members that fit their high demands. Today Masters of the Chainsaw carvers numbers 13 exclusive members and 36 part time members. It is the only agency in America devoted exclusively to chainsaw art. To date it has placed over 60 carvers at nearly 1,200 events in almost every state in the U.S., Canada and Japan. Additionally it has organized and operated 16 Chainsaw Carving Competitions.

Masters of the Chainsaw is now fortunate enough to announce its operations in Japan. As of April 2001, there is also a Masters of the Chainsaw in Toei, Japan. There have been carvers exported to Japan to carve, as well as, teach the art of chainsaw carving. We are now importing carvers to the USA for demonstrations, as well as competing. Masters of the Chainsaw were also asked to be honorary judges in the first ever Japan Chainsaw Art Competition.
