Dahl's Chainsaw Art

These guys are good, really good at what they do. It's fascinating to watch Jarrett turn an old wooden stump into a majestic eagle, or observe Jordan as he creates a whimsical black bear out of a 6 foot log. They both have their own areas of expertise and special interests. Jarrett likes to carve big, and the 25 foot Indian warrior with arms stretched skyward holding an in-flight eagle is absolutely a phenomenon.
