Default Must Watch video for the ultimate carving tool

Must watch. Chainsaw Wood Sculptures at Woodfest Wales - YouTube

I watched it all about 18 mins. If short on time watch first bit and then from about 11 mins in to see start of finished projects come to life.

If you have never seen one of those guys in action live, and get the chance to, jump on it. The videos don't even come close to it. I've seen them live a time or two, and hope to see more. Give me the inspiration to chainsaw a Tiki - not near as slick as the pros do, but loads of fun.

Very neat work with a brutal tool, I was working on a site once where there was going to be a arch cut in dry wall, wall, the clown who did it set it out and then cut it all in one go with a chainsaw, it was a disgusting and brutal act and I still don't know why and how he did not hit any cables or pipes, still these chain saw users are very neat.

Will this make CNC Routers obsolete? Is there a duplicator jig available? If so is it single phase, three phase, or mixed gas?
