    during the last week in February in the little town of Ridgeway, PA. they have the chainsaw carvers rendezvous. we went there for the first time last year. its a big deal and there are carvers from all over the world. most of the main streets are shut down and filled with carvers doing their thing. each carver donates one item for auction...the proceeds go to planning the next years rendezvous. you can buy some pretty cheap and crudely carved stuff....but you can find some very ornate and expensive carvings. when I redo my camp I plan to have one or 2 of them outside and in....

    It is truly amazing what these guys do with a chain saw. Some of the chainsaws are specially made with pointy tips but even so.
    I've got enough problems with mine just cutting the tree down...

    Amazing!
    Tell me about it. Anything bigger than 8" and I call in a professional to take it down.

    Great work. For some reason, here in B.C. there are 2 "Chainsaw Carving Capitols of the World" One is Hope and the other is Chetwynd.
