The region’s favourite chainsaw wood-carver is at it again and another remarkable piece, featuring two eaglesis taking shape.

Once he completes this impressive bench he will give it away to a worthy group.

Mr Aulsebrook became well-known around the area last year when he made and gave away two impressive Huon Pine benches.

One went the the Bomaderry Public School’s support unit and the other to Booderee National Park.

These donations were followed by two bears for the school and a silky oak table with two benches for the Nowra Family Support Service.

His latest piece has a Canadian/Rocky Mountains feel to it.

He was on holiday and stumbled across the Chetwynd Invitational Chainsaw Carving Championship.

Chainsaw carvers from around the world take part in the festival and the winning piece is kept on display for people to admire.

“I was staggered and could not believe it,” Mr Aulsebrook said about all the wooden carving he saw.

He took photos of as many of the displays as he could and his eagle bench was one of the Chetwynd inspired pieces.

“I was looking for a project I could do and found the photo of the bench,” he said.

“It will be finished in a few weeks and then I will give it away.”

He wants the bench to go to a not-for-profit organisation, like a school or community groupand would even give it to Shoalhaven City Council.

However, he does not want it to be sold by a private individual or business, unless a suitable donation is made to charity.

If you want to a submit a suggestion on where the bench should then goto the South Coast Register’s Facebook site.

The bench is mostly silky oak with some swampy oak.

He still loves talking about the children from the Bomaderry Public School and how they all lined up and said ‘thank you’.

He made them two wooden bears, last year, which he donated to both of the school’s two special education classes for their‘cool corners’.

When the students are having a bad day they can go over to the cool corner and touchthe bears.

For the students, especially the ones with autism, touching the wood helps calm them.

The students and their teachers love the bears and don’t be surprised if Mr Aulsebrook comes back with more of his special wooden donations.

BUILD IT BOB: Bob Aulsebrook is busy again making another impressive bench which he wants to give away to a worthy recipient.
