Vinko Bogdanoski in Reedsport at Oregon Divisional Chainsaw Sculpting Championships

A year after the Macedonian woodcarver Vinko Bogdanoski started to practice chainsaw carving, he decided to take part at the 13th Annual Oregon Divisional Chainsaw Sculpting Championships (held in Reedsport, Oregon, United States of America).

During Reedsport Chainsaw Carving Competition

Arriving short before the start of one of the biggest world chainsaw carving competitions (ODCSC 2012), Vinko had just little time to meet the Reedsport event rules and surroundings.

During the competition days (June 14-17, 2012) Vinko took part at the main event as Pro Carver + in fast carving discipline.
He worked at the wooden sculpture of four United States presidents (Mount Rushmore sculpture; main chainsaw carving event), and few smaller sculptures (fast carving).
Those few days were great experience for him, since he had chance to meet the best world chainsaw carvers, but also to see their skills.

Getting New Chainsaw Carving Experience

After the event Vinko stayed few more weeks at Reedsport, where he made few new friendships (Mr. Bill Karcher, local carvers and Reedsport residents), but also explored the tradition and culture of this part of the American continent.
He worked some time with the local carver Tom Castaneda (The Rusty Frog Gallery), and got big chainsaw carving experience, made various bears’ sculptures and benches with wild animals.

Those few weeks spent at the American west coast were quality spent time for Vinko.
It opened his new visions for chainsaw carving, get him deeply into this branch of art.

Before Mr Bogdanoski left Macedonia to be part of Oregon Chainsaw Carving Event 2012, and after his return – he made few new wooden sculptures through chainsaw carving at his “High Hills” studio.

Wooden Animal Sculptures, Statues, Company Logo Photos (Chainsaw Wood Carvings)

Almost a year since we started practicing chainsaw carving at High Hills studio, we made good amount of various chainsaw carvings.
Some of them were big (over 200 cm in height), some smaller, however – we were excited to create wooden sculptures in this, new for us, branch of carving.

As a tools, we primary used chain saws from STIHL and HusqvarnaHusqvarna chainsaws, but also various chisels, knives and other wood carving tools – for the final touch.

In all this years of existence, High Hills woodcarving studio had worked at various wood carving works: icons and wooden crosses, wall and stand clocks, mirror frames, souvenirs, hunting trophies, small figures and sculptures…

Since May 2011 we started to practice chainsaw wood carving, i.e. creating big wooden sculptures using chain saw as a main tool.
Usually we use chainsaws from STIHL and Husqvarna.
So far, few sculptures were made (totems, wild animals, company logos, etc).

We noticed people are very interested in this new kind of woodcarving works we offer.
Looking forward to explore this area of chainsaw carving more deeply, and deliver many beautiful sculptures through it.
