Long considered one of woodcraft's more interesting (and more dangerous) parlor tricks, chainsaw carving is familiar to most people. However, until now there has been very little, if any, how-to information for beginners unfortunate for such a potentially risky craft. MacIntosh, a professional chainsaw carver since the 1960s, shows how to select and care for a saw and how to complete a number of basic cuts. He offers step-by-step instructions for making a life-sized heron, a bear's head, and a three-dimensional log cabin scene. The colorful gallery showing the work of MacIntosh and a number of other artists is striking in both its beauty and its diversity. There is a short but pragmatic section on safety. This fascinating title will round out large public library collections.
