Here's a quick lesson in chainsaw wood carving

Local artist helps students carve out their options

The much-heralded Forestry Program offers students at Rutland Senior Secondary (RSS) school an abundance of learning opportunities.

However, none is as creative as the chainsaw wood carving workshop offered by local Tyler Welfing of Carvewell Creations who makes it look all so easy.

His work includes very intricate carvings which can then be painted, burnt or stained for added stunning effect.

For the purposes of a lesson with the secondary students, Welfing turned a cut log into a simple garden gnome. It took him just a few minutes!

While ensuring a safety first approach, he, along with teacher Marshall Corbett, took the students through their freestyling, (and sometimes not so freestyling), lumberjack moves.
