Wood Information for Chainsaw Carvings only


EACH WOOD CARVING HAS BEEN INDIVIDUALLY CRAFTED USING CHAINSAWS. A WOODCARVING IS A LIVING PRODUCT AND WOULD BENEFIT FROM A COAT OF LINSEED OIL ONCE A YEAR TO HELP KEEP THE MOISTURE IN THE CARVING AND SLOW DOWN THE DRYING OUT PROCESS WHICH MINIMIZES ANY SPLITING.

WILDTHINGS CARVINGS ARE MADE FROM SWEET CHESTNUT AND OAK WHICH ARE VERY GOOD OUTDOOR WOODS SOME EXAMPLES ARE SWEET CHESTNUT IS USED FOR FENCING AND OAK IS USED FOR POSTS AND BEAMS.

OAK AND CHESTNUT ARE HIGH IN TANNIN AND CAN LEAVE BROWN STAINS ON CONCRETE AND PATIOS. SO IF YOU HAVE A SURFACE YOU DO NOT WANT MARKED PLACE A PIECE OF PLASTIC UNDER THE CARVING OR SITUATE ELSEWHERE IN THE GARDEN. A SHADY SPOT IS IDEAL FOR YOUR CARVING PLACEMENT. INDOORS IS NOT RECOMMENDED AS HIGHER TEMPERATURES IN HOUSES CAUSE WOOD TO DRY TO QUICKLY.

 ALL OUR WOOD COMES FROM LOCALLY COPPICED R.S.P.B. FORESTS AND THE PROCESS OF COPPICING THE TREES KEEPS THEM HEALTHY AND REGENERATES THE WOODLAND.

IF YOU WANT TO STORE CARVINGS FOR E.G. CHRISTMAS PRESENTS PUT THEM IN A DRY SHED OR GARAGE AND DO NOT COVER. IF THE WOOD FEELS DRY APPLY A COAT OF LINSEED OIL.
