Chainsaw Sculpting Championships in Reedsport

REEDSPORT - The 13th Annual Reedsport Chainsaw Sculpting Championships are in full swing this weekend in Reedsport, Ore.

Carvers from Oregon, Washington, the rest of the United States and even as far away as Macedonia compete over four days to turn four foot wide spruce logs into beautiful works of art with chainsaws, grinders and other power tools.

In addition to the main entry, each carver competes in a daily “quick carve,” creating a work of art from a raw log in 90 minutes. These works are auction at the end of each day.

The contest is open to the public from 8 a.m. until the awards ceremony at 3 p.m. Sunday near the riverfront on Highway 38 in Reedsport.
