Chainsaw carving for charity
By Euan Youdale17 November 2016
Facelift Access Hire is auctioning off an impressive wood carving for charity.
On 5 October, Facelift commissioned local business Pixie Mushrooms’ chainsaw carver Luke Gasson to its Hickstead depot in West Sussex, UK, to carve an owl sculpture from one of the oak trees on its land.
The work was carried out at height on a Niftylift 120T trailer mounted platform, and took over nine hours to complete. The result was an impressive carving, more than 3m tall. The week before Mr Gasson had attended an IPAF operator training course at Facelift to learn how to safely manoeuvre the 12.2m working height machine.
The carving will be auctioned on eBay with the proceeds going to West Sussex-based charity Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice. To make a bid on the item please go to the Facelift website.
