This father-son sculpting team consists of Paul Frenette and Jacob Frenette. You may know the two from their roles in HGTV’s “Carver Kings” and OLN’s “Saw Dogs”
where they did top Chainsaw Wood Carvings and tree sculptures. Or from their travels around Canada in Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia, doing over 20 shows a year ranging from town festivals like Festival Du Voyager to Home Hardware Grand Openings. You may have also seen some of our work in playgrounds around North America, helping bring art into play Paul and Jacob work closely with Earthscape.

The Carver Kings carve both hard and soft wood, using chainsaws and power tools. They have made a collection of art that ranges from wildlife realism to abstract surrealism.

Paul Frenette

Paul started this journey after he had his favorite possession stolen, Wilson. A cement statue made to look like an Easter Island head. One day Paul was staring down at the trunk of a huge Walnut tree (finding lumber for winter), and he saw the face of Wilson. That’s when he decided he would take it home and give life to Wilson again, through the wood. After many years of practice, commission jobs, events and competitions, Paul finally began to master chainsaw art.

Paul then went on to show off his skills in many places like BC, Japan, US and Ontario along with two hit TV shows, one for HGTV’s “Carver Kings” and another for OLN and Discovery’s “Saw Dogs”. An artist is never satisfied with his progress but Paul has come a long way to reach the level of skill and perfection he achieves in every carving.

WHAT THEY HAD TO SAY

Woodstock Show

The Carver Kings very own Jacob and Paul were the feature carvers at this years Woodstock Woodworking Show. Jacob and Paul not only entertained the crowds, but interacted and participated with the crowd in a very intimate fashion. The crowds were constant around their demonstration area, and the Carver Kings were the main buzz of the patrons. 

Our Sunday was wetter than we would have wanted, but the Carver Kings were troopers and kept our crowds thoroughly entertained.

The HG TV’s Carver Kings were the darlings of the local media, allowing us to reach local and regional print, radio, and TV markets for interviews, news reports, and commentaries.

4PCCC Show

Paul and Jacob, It was a pleasure to spend time with the two of you while out in Powerview-Pine Falls, Manitoba for the 2016 2nd Annual Labour Day Long Weekend 4P Chainsaw Carving Challenge. To watch a father and son work and play together was inspirational to both my son Kaysen and myself. With your help, , the experience was an absolute success and we’re looking forward to building an even Bigger 4PCCC in 2017! Not only did you help in growing the event, you brought a feeling of hope and excitement to a community that has had its challenges over the past decade. There was a hole left from the loss of its only industry, the Pine Falls Paper Mill. The Woods Department became a thing of the past. With this event, it lives on as a historically significant tangible living artifact. Sawdust is in our blood. Thank you for helping out. You’re truly good people and I’m looking forward to future endeavors on the horizon. Cheers,
