It can be used flat to create large level surfaces, or used at angles to provide shallow cuts for fine shaping, planing and sculpting. This specialized blade has Tungsten Carbide teeth for long blade life, that can easily be re-sharpened with a small diamond lapstone.

Second Chainsaw Carving Boot Camp a Huge Success!

by dotcompost 29. June 2010 00:39

Phew, it has been a busy June here at Bailey's. In addition to sending our Summer catalog off to the printer, we hosted two major events at our facility in Woodland, California. The first one that I'll cover in this post was the Steve Backus Chainsaw Carving Boot Camp which took place June 12-13. Before I begin, I would like to thank all of the students who came from near and far to attend the Boot Camp. This was our second such chainsaw carving event, and I think they just keep getting better. Steve (along with his protégé, Mike) and Pat McVay taught twelve students over the course of two days how to carve a Salmon and a Standing Bear. The early feedback from the students has been overwhelmingly positive. Many of them told me they were surprised at how professional their carvings turned out after two short days of instruction. Others were amazed at the incredible leap their chainsaw carving skills took after such a short time. I've posted a few images below to give you a flavor of the fun and learning that took place. My sincere thanks to chainsaw carvers Steve and Pat, and photographer/videographer Peter Wiant for another highly-successful event. Be sure to keep an eye out in our catalogs for future events. Lastly, a special note of thanks to Steve Backus, Pat McVay and their associate chainsaw carver, Steve Orne (Steve did a great Bear carving demo for the students on Sunday) for the cool Bailey's "chainsaw" stump carving they contributed to our Woodland facility.
