Chainsaw Carving Classes
I have been carving for 14 years and gained much experience while carving thousands of inventory pieces and hundreds of custom sculptures for clientelle who trust me. I want to save you time and help you make more money by teaching you my tricks of the trade.
During my first year of carving, I gave up 6 months of my life to live on the road with some of the best carvers in the USA. This set me up for success in the future, now most of you don't have 6 months of time and money to be somebody's laborer while traveling to gain knowledge, so I'm offering the fast track way online!
