chainsawbars.co.uk now sponsoring Nic Speakman of 3D wood

We have a good range of carving bars and chains and will be looking to expand this over the next year. To go with this we will be sponsoring a number of carvers to help promotion as well as to get bars and chains tested to make sure we can supply the best equipment and advice.

Currently we stock cannon, stihl, oregon and zebra carving bars.

I'm surprised people aren't raving about the oregon carving bars - they seem superb quality and the one I'm using is standing up very well! I'd like to hear more people's feedback on these. Oregon don't make these themselves but whoever does knows what they're doing!





Nic Speakman is relatively new to carving but is already competing at the highest level - here's some of his work 3D Wood

Nicks a nice guy having spoken to him on the phone, I bought a little echo off him last year as he had a couple of them, Mine now has a cannon 8" bar on it for coppice work and brashing stuff down but it looks like new still after a reasonable amount of work this winter.

Some stunning work as well, I struggle with mushrooms

Re: chainsawbars.co.uk now sponsoring Nic Speakman of 3D wood

Great idea Rob, a few arb dealers are seeing a market for carving and you've already done more than most to push this forwards.
Kudos to Nic, kind of makes me want to pull my finger out and start taking things seriously
Still want that bar BTW, I'll have it when my saw is running.
Cheers,
Si
