Wood Carvings

Life-size Silverback Gorilla wood sculpture

  • November 23, 2014

Mark’s most impressive chainsaw wood sculpture this year is definitely the life-size Silverback Gorilla that he carved for Silverback Distillery in Afton, Viginia. The gorilla is made from 5 logs: head and neck, left arm, right arm, mid-section, and haunches and hind legs. The logs were notched, joined together and secured with long screws. This video shows the stages of production.
