  Here is a radio interview with Chainsaw Jack provided by Stormy Productionsí Jeremy Weathers

Slide Show and Interview with Jack on 'American Voices with Senator Bill Bradley'


Chainsaw Jack was born in Arizona and has lived most of his life in the Great Northwest.  He currently resides in Selah, Washington with his wife and daughter.  He has an educational background in Micro Biology, for which he holds a Degree, but his true love is the chainsaw!  Since he started carving he has sold pieces to people all over the world.  Jack has appeared on ABC's Extreme Makeover Home Edition and  has been featured on broadcast news, newspaper articles and has done many art shows for which he holds awards for his work.  As well as wood Jack has work with several other mediums such as stone, metal, snow and even polystyrene.  Jack has won awards for competing in many competitions such as the Westport International Chainsaw Carving Championship.  Another competition Jack competed in was  Reno Little Joes Carving for Kids that benefited the Make a Wish Foundation. Jack is also officially licensed to carve the Smokey Bear image  and he has carved a 7ft Smokey Bear for a local ranger station click here to view.  He also helped in carving a  number of snow sculptures at the Annual White Pass Winter Carnival.   Jack has also done school mascots for every educational level, from Baylor University Bear to John Campbell Elementary SchoolCheck out more mascots here!

 Lots of people will commission Jack to carve into a stump in their yard instead of paying for stump removal, such as the Statue of Liberty in a patrons yard.  Jack can also carve into your log home as seen here.  Jack was also pleased to participate in a welding competition  with fellow chainsaw carvers (Dave Tremko, Pat McVay, and Bill Bruzas) in Bellingham Washington where they placed 2nd!

 In addition to carving in wood, snow and metal another favorite medium of Jack's is stone.  To see his latest works in stone go here:  www.sculpturesinstone.com
