Do you have any "Sasquatch" carvings? as I was up there and you had one that had a big smile. ?
Do you come to Reedsport Oregon for the fathers day weekend carving?
Hi George, How close are you to Chicago ? I would like to find a possible way to learn chain saw carving? Thanks,Julie
George can't thank you enough for making a detour and stopping in Schertz to help me make cool things with my fallen elm. I learned so much, you are an awesome instructor, and amazing to watch you in action! Can't wait to see you in a competition one day 🙂. Diane can't wait to try some of those awesome wines in December at your shop 😉
Thanks for the amazing art!
