Chainsaw Carving - Soper Originals

On a sunny summer day, our son and daughter-in-law invited both sets of parents to join them out by the barn to watch their friend Jason Soper (Soper Originals) demonstrate his renowned chainsaw carving. When the carving was complete, Jason and our son incorporated the carving into the first stage of a bench, which they later completed. It was a delightful day. The last two shots are of a walking-stick handle previously carved by Jason. You can see the carving from first cuts to final product.
