The basic fee for a day chainsaw carving demonstration is £375 Extra may be charged to cover travel and accommodation if the demonstration involves a long trip necessitating travel and overnight stays.
This basic charge allows for up to 4hrs of carving time, which would amount to one large sculpture or 3 smaller sculptures depending on the size and quantity of wood available. As a very general guide, one large sculpture can be created from a log 5-6ft in length by about 24" to 36 " diameter within the one-day period, depending on degree of detail.
The client is generally responsible for supplying the timber, which can be bent, knotty timber rejected by a local sawmill or windfall timber on site or located to site for carving.
If I do hit any nails or steel this will slow my carving process down and may even end the session in extreme circumstances. The client will be responsible for such stoppages and will be charged for the time. I always carry out a metal detector check on timber prior to carving and advise the client to to do so before carving begins.
If the client cannot source timber then it can be brought by my business and charged for at the market rate (payment to be made as part of the booking of event.
(Please indicate if you need me to order timber for your event).
