Incredible Wood Carving Arts By Using Chainsaw

My name is Josh Carte, and I live and carve in Southeastern Ohio. I’ve been carving for 12 years, and the past 4 1/2 years have been full-time. I first began my carving journey when I noticed a chainsaw carved mushroom at a friend’s house. I thought, “I can do that.” So, I talked to a friend who ran a chainsaw shop. He got me a saw, and I went home and carved a mushroom. It was crude and misshapen, but I loved creating something from nothing. From there, there was no stopping me. I began carving every day, failing and learning. It was fascinating to me. I continued to carve using only a chainsaw until o started noticing other folks carving detailed faces.

Again, I thought “I can do that.” Turns out, faces are incredibly difficult. I’d spend all of my free time studying and learning to carve different styles of faces and expressions. After 8 years of “practicing”, I decided to try and carve for a living. For the past 4 1/2 years, I’ve been doing what I love every day, thankfully. I sell all of my work on my website- JoshCarteArt.com, and I’m very grateful to be able to provide for my family, doing what I love.
