Default Ridgway carving

Hi, I have not posted a lot lately just too busy but.... I thought you might enjoy seeing my pc that I did at Ridgway this year.

Yup, that is my wife in the picture too. She is now a chainsaw carving chick!

Hope you enjoy the picture.

Greg

Thanks Dave and Colin, I am lucky to have my wife take the interest.

Colin, I was hoping to finally meet you! Perhaps next year or somewhere else. If you ever pass through Georgia on the way to Florida give me a call, we are 5 minutes off the interstate and have extra room for the night!

Hi Greg, that is a nice looking carving. I think it's great when a couple carves together or in your case chainsaws together. Nice picture too!

Hi Greg, Great carving, lots of character & love the eyes, they give him life at the end for sure. Nice to see the Wife getting involved also & looks like Ridgway was a good one especially with Chester there!
Thanks, Robbin

Thank you Mottles and Robin. You bet, Chster was an amazing guy. Pretty cool getting to share some time with him. We missed you there. Talk at you later. By the way the ski goggles work, now if I can just remember to put them on!

Greg

I remember that carving, you made it into a bench if I remember correctly.

Very nice work, Ridgway was certainly an experience I will be there again next year.
