That video just goes to show you how talented so many country folk are. And they don't see it as art most of the time. Me, at 64 would probably cut my leg off. My log cabin was put together with wood pegs, morter, and notched logs, and there is such a beauty to the hand hewn logs. I'm a portrait artist, but I am much more impressed with the art that people produce in making something useful to enhance their living conditions. This is my favorite places to watch the morning sunrise, and drink a couple cups of coffee. The rocker was made from a cedar tree brought down by hurricane Ike in '08.
Love that rocker Ina, the arms even have bear claws! I wonder if Ike is the only one around here, who has had a hurricane named after him?
Across the street from my house, my neighbor had a large tree removed because it was old, and large branches were falling off of it, one of them crushing his car. Rather than cutting it down all the way, he left about six feet of it standing. He is an auctioneer who also sells stuff from his home, so he would sometimes place things on top of it to get attention. One day, someone came by and asked for permission to carve the stump into a figure of an Indian. He did the whole thing with a few chainsaws, including a very small one for the detail work. He has since carved figures into stumps all around Millinocket.
I'm a big fan of saving tree trunks and getting creative with them! . Love that one above^^
Have seen totem poles made from them.
