Many CS carvers who live in cities & towns use electric or hydraulic chainsaws, because of the neighbors. If you try it, get the proper safety equipment--helmet, glasses, and chaps. I don't wear the gloves----That's mainly if the vibration bothers your hands.
Actually these guys are safe----They're all made from Pine, Larch, and Poplar. Not good smoking hardwoods.
If I ever start carving again, this forum will be the first to know.
