Jack Riese creates wildlife art with a chainsaw

A tree stump, a chain saw, a ladder and an imagination are the tools of Jack Riese, chainsaw artist from Massillon, Ohio. From totem poles to eagles, from unicorns to bears in a canoe, Jack can take it from concept to finished sculpture!

Chainsaw art owlJack began his chainsaw art by making totem poles from telephone poles about 40 years ago. His interest in Native American culture inspired many of his creations. His work caught interest and people began to request his work. His first creations were done by hand. With the addition of a chainsaw in his arsenal, he can complete a piece in about 2 hours.

His chainsaw carved coat rack placed 9th among competitors from around the world. The piece was created from a 10-foot piece of wood. The final piece was a tree with branches and three raccoons.
