Time has flown since the last post! Sorry about that.
But I haven’t been idle. Highlight of the summer so far was the chainsaw carving course at Haliburton School of the Arts. Taught by Robbin Wenzoski of Robbin’s Amazing Art, it’s an intense course that covers chainsaw buying, maintenance and of course, safe use – along with plenty of opportunity to create works of art.
As a result, continuing my Alice in Wonderland theme, the cheschire cat in my tree out front now almost has the white rabbit for company. Just a few more details and finishing to go.
While in the Minden/Haliburton area I visited Walter at the Carving Gallery. Great guy and an outstanding place to visit if you’re a fan of chainsaw carving.

When the holidays end, the winter months ahead can look pretty bleak. But for Ontario carvers, this quiet time is the prelude to a busy show season just ahead. Finish your projects now, and you could be on the road collecting ribbons this spring.
Here are some shows I’m looking forward to.
