Hello I'm Scott Kuefler; I’m a chainsaw artist, woodcarver, chainsaw sculptor, tree carver, or whatever you would like to call it, from Chesterfield, Michigan. I have been chainsaw carving since 2001. Since I started, I’ve carved bears, buffalo, benches, cartoon characters, cats, deer, dogs, dragons, eagles, elk, fish, herons, horses, parrots, penguins, horses, human figures, nautical creations, signs, wolves, wood spirits, and almost everything else, since 2001.
I’m an award winning national and international competitor. I have competed all across the United States(Michigan, Ohio, Indian, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Florida), and I have gone as far as Japan for competitions. I do demonstrations for events. I’ve taught my son to carve as well. He’s been carving three or so years less than me. Since he started he developed a style of his own. I am passionate about every sculpture I create.
