The Ridgway Rendezvous

The largest gathering of chainsaw carvers in the world with 194 carvers from nine countries, held in Ridgway Pennsylvania, USA.  The event is split between actual carving time, seminars and networking and the sharing of ideas.

Throughout the event there was everything being carved from animal studies; bears, eagle, snakes, fish, even a full size horse, to human study and fantasy. I chose to carve a cheeky goblin, causing much confusion among the locals, which fetched a fair sum at auction.
