You're Either A Chainsaw Person Or Not

I believe when it comes to chainsaws, you are or you're not. There's no in-between. Don't get me wrong, I think they are incredible machines but unfortunately, they are not my thing. Things people can do with a chainsaw are amazing. It just blows my mind. I would end up cutting myself.

The Best Of The Best In The World Of Chainsaws

It takes some real skill to just operate a chainsaw safely and correctly let alone carve sculptures with one. Have you ever seen anyone do it? The art is pretty darn impressive. The details are incredible.

Now, they are searching for the best of the best in the United States. Luckily, there's a competition to find out the champion. It's just a short drive from Rockford if you want to check it out.
