Good evening! I took these at Woodfest 2007 which the local woodworking store (Woodzone) put on back during the summer. I thought the chainsaw carving guy was pretty good. I’ve also included some pictures of a bandsaw mill and some of that vendors wares. Enjoy!

Astounding. It just seems too crude of a tool to get the delicacy that they end up getting.

Hey Carl,
I know its an old thread, but I’m wondering if you caught the name of the chainsaw carver there? He looks familiar but I didn’t recognize his work.
Thanks either way!
