Tyler Welfing is the owner and carver behind Carvewel Creations chainsaw carvings. Tyler has been carving since 2021 but has been involved in woodworking his whole life.  Although chainsaw carving is relatively new to him, Tyler has been recognized in the carving community as a pro carver who is producing works years beyond what his experience would indicate.

In August of 2021, Tyler was the newest carver to ever get invited to compete in the Hope BC chainsaw carving competition, where he placed 2nd in the Carver Class and took home the People’s Choice Award. The sculpture he carved at the competition was kept by the Town of Hope to be installed downtown in the Spring of 2022.

Tyler was also part of the team that did carved ice sculptures in Polson Park for the 2021 Vernon Winter Carnival.  He was the recipient of the Carnival Spirit Award as voted by the Winter Carnival Board.
