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

Flat Fish Anyone?
While carving wood with a chainsaw is most often done "in the round", flat carvings have certain advantages. Since these flat carvings are made from slabs, they require less wood, are lighter weight, and they can be hung on your wall or fence. They're also both easier and cheaper to ship than in the round carvings.
Local furniture builder, Jody White, ordered a few of my salmon carvings to decorate the area around his swimming pool. Or so I thought... By the time I delivered the order, Jody was busy building a new cedar fence for his garden. My salmon just happened to fit in the top panels of the new fence and now decorate the street view side of his own artwork :-)
