Have you ever driven along the roads of New England and wondered where the large wooden animals appear from? At the Deerfield Fair they have a Woodcutters Display and it is a working exibit. Part Three in the Deerfield NH Country Fair series takes these wooden art forms seriously!
The working stock is cut from these huge tree sections and worked into Tree ART with Chainsaws and other tools. Tables in the foreground are also done and for sale at the fair with imbedded pictures.
Note: All pictures are taken with a Nikon D50 Digital SLR camera and a 28-80mm lens by Nikkkor
