I Need That In The Foyer: A Chainsaw Carved Dinosaur

July 30, 2013


Note: Larger version HERE for more detail.

I don't have a foyer by the way, I was just daydreaming about how cool it would be to have a house with a foyer instead of an apartment with a bug problem. This is the chainsaw carved dinosaur created by Scott Dow of ANIMALISTIC Chainsaw Carving Studio in Corry, Pennsylvania. Apparently it's not even finished yet, but already you can tell he has some serious skills with a chainsaw. Me? I've only had serious accidents. Guess how many toes I have on my right foot. "None, that's a pegleg." Exactly.

Thanks to Cloie A., who knows chainsaw mastery when she sees it, and she saw this.

    I had a neighbor, a widower, who had an old and huge evergreen/pine tree in his front yard. The trunk was about four feet in diameter. The tree was very clearly dying, more and more of the needles turning brown. He had it cut down but left enough for a chainsaw artist to carve a bear, as if standing up on it's hind legs. It wasn't quite as good as that dinosaur. The bear got a coat of brown paint and some detailing. When the widower died the new owners of the house apparently didn't appreciate the bear, but they had it removed carefully, and last time I saw it, it was in the driveway being put into a box, so it must have been saved or sent somewhere.

    Nifty. I made a similar one for my foyer several years ago, without a chainsaw, tho. http://timboyle.com/allosau...
