I’ve been to the APF (Association of Professional Foresters) show for the last three days. We were near the chainsaw carvers – 26 of them I believe, pretty noisy. As you can see they have several means of making noise and carvings. This guy had 4 saws, a drill, a blower, an angle grinder and something else I can’t make out.
Some of the carvings were impressive:
Others rather sad:Yet others world-changing (Is the globe really that shape?).
We, on the other hand, were doing our own bonkers activity, racing each other to make legs that will never be used in chairs.
Kevin from Ireland won the singles International log to leg race on the Saturday, he didn’t use a shelter.
Here’re the ash logs we started from to make a pair of matching legs Penalties were awarded for bad turning and mismatches. See those black dots – they cost you time penalties – 15 seconds each.Me, I was more interested in carving and a spot of lunch (I’m not entirely sure why there’s a drawing pin in the banana). No I didn’t carve with the Opinel – strictly for culinary use.
