hey there mike, so nice to see you here, i loved this article, ive seen many chainsaw artists, and he is very good, and what he is doing now will be a treat for all who go to this park area, if i were under different circumstances, i would love to try my hand at this art, the chainsaw he uses has a very small tipped bar, that allows him to get such detail, and his work is beautiful….thanks again mike, i love articles like these…grizz

A very talented artist. And he gets paid to, that’s a plus. Thanks for posting Mike. His materials are being re-purposed for a far better use.

Mike,

I visited the site and even made a post. I almost gagged when I read the first post shown where someone was criticizing him for doing this. Geeez Louise. This is quite amazing and fulfills the first rule of woodworking. To honor the tree that the wood came from. Thanks for posting this.

Thanks for the welcome Bob. it is good to be back.

I am always amazed at what these chainsaw artists can create. It just proves that an artist is an artist regardless of the tools he chooses to use and the medium he chooses to use it on.

Pretty neat. Just thinking about doing that gives me muscle cramps and a sore back. Assume he is running a pretty light saw…....I don’t know what’s with the weight of saws these days.
