Ray is a one of a kind artist. I don't know of anyone anywhere who does precision carving with chainsaws, nor have I ever heard of another 70 year old who can use one in each hand. The show costs $10 per head and lasts...More

Ray has been doing chain saw art for a long time and he is really good at it. I have a rabbit he made more than 20 years ago.

He has a small store/gift shop but no set hours, believe there is a phone number on the door and if you call they will open the store. Would think the best time for the shop would be an hour or so before his 7pm show.
