BB Rodeo, Beausejour- Rooster's Chainsaw Carving Show

 

I remember seeing my first chainsaw carving and thinking "I want to do that some day". I photographed carvings in my travels and researched the topic on the internet but found that I still had no idea where to start. In 2007 I was fortunate to be able to attend a three day workshop given by a professional carver. I now assist with the camp and promote the art in our area and I enjoy helping others get started in this great "art form".
