David Evans Log Carving and Chainsaw Scupture

Perhaps some of the best known elements of a David Evans and Richard Taylor cross country course are David Evans' log carvings and wooden animal sculptures.

David produces large log carvings for use as cross country jumps as well as a wide variety of smaller, mainly animal carvings used as 'unjumpable' elements and to provide themes for particular cross country jumps and complexes.

As part of building the cross county course for the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008, David produced many animals of eastern origin, such as dragons, pandas, giant carp and pot-bellied pigs.

For Luhmuhlen in Germany a fine pair of Hanovarian bears watch over leaping salmon carved logs.

David's smaller (and more portable!) chainsaw carvings take many forms including giant dragonflies, pigs, squirrels, meercats, badgers, bears, ducks, dogs, horses, foxes, badgers, owls, mushrooms and giant snails. Whilst initially produced to adorn cross country jumps they have proved popular as garden features and added interest to many commercial premises.

LOG JUMP CARVINGS

Large logs can also be carved into cross country jumps specific to your design, or to suit the character of the log itself. These can be painted or brush/greenery added to suit specific technical or design requirements.

Logs have been turned into feature fences specific to a sponsors request as with the 'Hunter' welly (latterly the Dubarry boot) at Gatcombe. Other logs carved into jumps by David Evans include the 'Crouching Dragons' for the Hong Kong Olympic course in 2008, the Bramham lobster,'Nessie' at Gatcombe, new fish for the water at Somerford, ducks (Hong Kong Olympic course, Blenheim and Chatsworth) 'green man' style heads, castles, fish, dogs, hedgehogs, mushrooms, giant squirrels and bottles.

Any request can be produced, if physically possible!!
