If you've always had the desire to make something artistic or creative out of the tree that's just come down and the wood is still sitting around waiting to be sculpted, this is a great opportunity to start that project. If you’ve never quite had the time to start a carving project or indeed learn to carve then take this time now. Starting a creative project is a great way to keep your mind off of other things and stay focused on a project that you can enjoy.
Whether you're looking to start a chainsaw carving project or a whittling project, we've put together some useful resources for inspiration and to help you get started.
(If you are going to be picking up a chainsaw to get creative and start carving then please do ensure you wear your chainsaw trousers, safety boots and helmet. Stay safe and always wear your PPE)

If you don't have some of the tools you'll need you can buy carving tools online or from Amazon to get you started. Here are some of useful videos of projects to have a go at:
