Adventuresinchainsawing.com is a blog that seeks to provide a starting point for people wishing to familiarize themselves with choosing, sizing, maintaining, and operating a chainsaw. I hope to fill a void and provide regular people, who find themselves needing unbiased info, with some useful information located in one place. As time passes, I hope to document my forays into various segments of the world of chainsawing: from felling and bucking to carving and milling. As I encounter new products and equipment, I will share my experiences and thoughts on said equipment.
In my quest for knowledge (and an attempt to bring knowledge of this blog’s existence to the world), I have entered the world of social media. The twitter-sphere is filled with talented people doing incredible things with chainsaws. I find it incredibly inspiring, and I hope to share this enthusiasm with a wider audience. A list of carvers and chainsaw craftsmen on twitter can be found here:
This blog is meant to be a document of my adventures, trials, and tribulations into the world of the chainsaw. In short, this is an ode to the chainsaw.
I am not an expert. I don’t make a living with a chainsaw, nor am I a certified instructor. I have not logged thousands of hours with a chainsaw in my hands. Hell, I don’t even heat with wood, so I don’t buck up cords of wood every year. This blog is meant to be a place that details my experiences, and what I, a dedicated amateur- an aficionado if you will, have learned in the quest for improving my knowledge base and skills with a chainsaw. Take what you read with a grain of salt. I whole heartedly advocate taking charge of your own adventure into learning, but I do hope that you find this blog to be a good starting point.
