  1. Looking to get custom chainsaw carving done of our golden retriever. We live in Virginia (Charlottesville) so ideally would be someone interested and driveable. Traditional "sitting" position carving would be best although pic does not have him in sit position. Have no idea if I am breaking any protocol, etc on this forum as I just joined. Apologies if I am. Thanks, Sean
  2. I have been let down by my usual buyer so I have 4 pieces of Oak for sale, all suitable for carving. All are about 4m long, I would estimate the larger pieces are around 2.5t each, the smaller pieces being around 500kg. They will be next to a road with good access for artics etc. I can arrange delivery on an 8wheeler with a hiab. Please call or message me for more info Thanks David 07896036437
  3. This is my first attempt at carving anything (and it shows) but the clients were delighted. Needs to be tidied up to remove the chain marks, but I'm happy with the basic size/shape etc... The tree was over 100 years old and was infested with old nails and things - spent more time sharpening than actually cutting [ame] [/ame]
  4. I'm really enjoying carving as my new hobby, I've done 9 mushrooms so far, I thought the mushrooms would be a good thing to start with to get used to the control. the first few were a bit suspect but i'm quite pleased with the later ones. I haven't got a carving bar yet, I'm using my little 235 Husqy with a 14" bar which can be a bit cumbersome. I've posted a picture of a few, I have since sanded them down and i'm quite pleased with them. Couple of questions to you old hands: 1) what is the best treatment to use on the sculptures? linseed, beeswax etc? 2) what would suggest I attempted next as I feel i'm ready to step away from the mushrooms? (so does the wife as there are 9 in the front garden now!!) Thanks guys.
  5. I am running two carving courses in October for all UK based people with chainsaw qualifications (a LANTRA course to gain the qualification needed can be arranged). there will be a 3 day basic course and a 2 day intermediate course. If anyone is interested, please go to Simon O’Rourke – Tree Carving Ltd or email me - [email protected] If the timing isn't right I will organise more courses in the future Thanks, Simon:thumbup:
  6. Hey everyone and thanks to webmaster Steve for getting me through the anti spam barriers! We're looking for my replacement here at National Trust: Downhill Demesne and Hezlett House, North Coast N.Ireland. Downhill Demesne & Mussenden Temple - National Trust - | Facebook I absolutely loved this job to bits but I had to move on up at some point and the Site mgr post came up so I went for it and got it.... anyway.... Whilst Arbour work will make a significant amount of the early winter works on the estate this post is a very varied role going from visitor services, events logistics, training of volunteers, students and the Academy position. It would certainly suit someone looking to ease off from the heavy tree work and get more involved with all aspects of estate mgmt, gardening/horticulture, conservation, visitor engagement and more. Whilst the wage @ circa 17K might not seem much this is incredibly rewarding. relocation expenses would be paid, numerous benefits and ongoing training with Europe's biggest charity. All I can say is read the role profile on the jobs listing to get a real idea of what it entails. --> Full Role profile and apply here: https://irecruitment.nationaltrust.org.uk/OA_HTML/OA.jsp?page=/oracle/apps/irc/candidateSelfService/webui/VisVacDispPG&OAHP=IRC_EXT_SITE_VISITOR_APPL&OASF=IRC_VIS_VAC_DISPLAY&akRegionApplicationId=821&transactionid=352500813&retainAM=N&addBreadCrumb=RP&p_svid=1389&p_spid=1329&oapc=6&oas=VcsvRj5anJUBoE6tHvVEpw
