Wood sculptor Thomas Earing crafted this amazing Batman wood carving using only a goddamn professional chainsaw. The wooden sculpt stands 7 feet-tall and is carved from silver maple.

The art of wood carving has been around since the ancient Egyptian civilization and took years to perfect. And that desire for perfection is just as strong in craftsmen today. Generally, professional wood crafters use small tools– like pocket-knife or hammer and chisel– to create small figures and figurines. The joints require screws or adhesives such as super glue to hold the pieces together. But Earing’s intricate artwork has been created from one single block of silver maple wood, using nothing but a chainsaw

It is a hobby for many people across the world with there being a vast difference between each sculptures. Some are small and intricate or be used as big as a tree. Hopefully, those who use wood that has come directly from trees have used people who know what they’re doing, like these Certified Los Angeles county Tree Service Experts, to get the wood in the best possible condition for what they need. There’s often competitions to see who’s the best. It is actually one of the oldest arts of humankind.

“To me, a chainsaw is just a 3-D pencil,” said Earing to Washington’ KOMO News. “You start scratching in the details. You try to get shadows. It just starts revealing a surface just like a printer would print.” If you want to try and create something like this, you’ll need to look at a website like to find the best chainsaw. It takes years of practise to be able to create something like this Batman though.

If only it were as simple as a printer, maybe we’d all be doing what Earing does on the daily.
