Carving stumps, sticks and logs with just about any tool that gets in my way.

Split Mountain Chainsaw Carving Festival
In July I will go to "hob-nob with my fellow wizards" at the 2nd Annual Split Mountain Chainsaw Carving Festival & Art Auction in Vernal, Utah. This unusual festival gets local merchants to sponsor carvers and there is no competition. Primary sponsors [paying for a carver] get a custom carved piece from their artist and other sponsors provide lodging, meals, etc... It's all about the art and the auction.
The Art Auction is of pieces submitted/donated by carvers to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. Money from each piece is split 50/50 with the artist getting half and the other half being donated to Wounded Warrior.
