This piece was carved almost exclusively with the chainsaw by professional chainsaw artist, Nick Smith and painted by his wife and fellow artist, Amanda Smith.

Once the carving is complete, the sculpture is typically treated with Flood or other protective coatings to enhance its durability and protect it from the elements.

Please read the carving care in the description and it can also be found on our page!

Any questions? Please send us a message! We would be happy to help! 😊

Chainsaw Carved Cardinal

Out of Stock
  • A bit of checking/cracking is normal and part of log made art.
    They may open and close depending on the weather and time of season.

    We apply wood sealer to our carvings to help protect them from the weather elements and slow down the drying process to help reduce checking/cracking.

    An ideal location is a shaded area or a covered porch.

    Direct sun or a location near a heat source can increase checking/cracking.

    Maintain air flow beneath the bottom of the carving using rocks, bricks, furniture slides, rubber feet, etc.

    We would recommend brushing a coat of sealer on annually as well as an  additional coat or two of wood sealer if you notice checking or water no longer beading off the surface.

  • Due to the nature of this type of art we do not accept returns or cancellations. Please contact us immediately if there is an issue with your order. Thank you!
