Friends and Family


In the spring of 1991 Bruce Bayard woke up inspired to carve a face on a hollow apple tree in his front yard. He shared the wonderous revelation with his wife Cheryle and she congratulated him and rolled over and went back to sleep. By 7:30 that morning his carving was finished and soon friends had Bruce carve for them.

In the spring of 92 Bayard witnessed a man selling his carvings in the Adirondacks and saw there was a market for chainsaw art. He brought himself some logs and for the next year taught himself how to remove the wood to bring out his whimsical creations.

In May of 1993 Bruce Bayard opened up his studio as a professional chainsaw artist and became known as "Chainsaw Bear". Bruce Bayard and his work have matured over the years and Bayard's fame his spread to international renown.
