Master Chainsaw Artist Steve Blanchard's Work
After holding dozens of odd jobs, a bunch of failures and a lot of hard work, Steve Blanchard found his calling as a chainsaw artist. His first wood carving in 1985 was a mushroom (though he aimed for a redwood tree), and now he makes the most intricate designs.
When we watch Saw Dogs we mostly see Steve Blanchard bossing around the other guys, not often does he pick up the chainsaw himself. But Steve Blanchard truly is a master carver, and here is some proof of that!
All these amazing woodcarvings are done by Steve himself.
Above are photos of Steve Blanchard's Itsyville, a fantasy tree house village that Dolly Parton had wanted for her theme park, Dollywood, but ended up at a residence at Lake Tahoe. The village was also the focus for Steve's children's book series Itsyville.
This is the kind of play house I had wanted when I was a kid.
Aren't they amazing? What's your favorite?
Tune in to Saw Dogs Saturday at 9pm to watch this master carver at work!
