Some people have a picture in their minds of chainsaw carvers as being big burly outdoor types. Sure, there are some of those. But, chainsaw carving is a fun hobby and a way to earn extra money, even for senior citizens and young ladies. But how do they learn to chainsaw carve? From a new idea on the market. Chainsaw carving schools.
The George Kenny School of Chainsaw Carving is one such school. Located outside Seattle, the chainsaw carving school is teaching people from all over the country how to chainsaw carve. Students have ranged from 18 to 80 years old. George Atcheson, 80, is one such students. He took the class this past March and plans to start making some side money from carving at shows and fairs. Carol Slaughter, 72, took the class to learn a new hobby. She wrote a testimonial, which can be found at the schools web site, http://www.bearinabox.com. She said, ÂDear George, I haven't had that much fun in a long time!!! I am impressed with how much you stuffed into the 4 days--- I have quite a lot to show for it., and now have to find places for it all. I have been out in our woods today looking at possibilities for future creativity. You are a good teacher, and I know that because I taught for a lot of years.
People are also making an investment by taking the classes. Lou Fuchs flew across the country, from Connecticut to Seattle, to take the class. According to his testimonial, ÂThe course and entire experience was worth every pennyÂ. Mr. Fuchs invested in cross country airfare, hotel, and a rental car. The classes donÂt come cheap either. 3 days is $1500 and an advanced class is $2200. Many students have earned back their tuition within a few weeks of taking the class.
