Chainsaw sculpture

Getting started

These men have a rather noisy method for carving wood. Start with a log 10 - 12 inches in diameter and 18 - 30 inches long, crank up the chain saw and dive right in. In a few minutes, the basic shape is done. Do a little more detail sawing and apply a little paint and you have a finished sculpture. See Marianne's post for more of their work.

That is some kind of talent! Seems like there couldn't be much opportunity to back out of mistakes. That Jack O' is adorable.

That is cool. I like to see the happy smile on Marianne face. Life is happy.
