These VHS format videos are not as polished as those published more recently. Probably a bit too much time is spent watching someone carve (without proper editing), however, there is still a lot of good information being offered. Of particular note is the info on how to price and market your carvings.
MacIntosh did his first chainsaw carving in the mid-60’s. He has published two other books and written many magazine articles on chainsaw carving for special interest magazines.
