Six days a week, you’ll find Jackson firing up a chainsaw, and attacking a piece of wood until it becomes a detailed sculpture of an animal. The Eureka Springs event that Jackson has attended the last few years is Carving in the Ozarks, which focuses on the art of chainsaw carving. Tom and Jodi Wood on Lake George had a tree that needed to be taken down on their property.
They were hired by the Woods to turn this eye sore of a tree along the bank into a soaring eagle to be enjoyed by both them and passing boaters.
She’s been chainsaw wood carving for about 18 years, after discovering her calling while living in Washington State. A man from Fayetteville spotted her new shop while driving through Alpena and ended up bringing her two logs, large in girth, from his property for her to carve into razorback-style hogs.
Jackson said she carves in yellow pine, red cedar, maple, black walnut, ash, sycamore, cherry, and elm. Typically, 15 to 20 carvers participate each year, creating a masterpiece that will be auctioned off.
Also on the lot is a fire pit that smolders with the remnants of wood cut from her sculptures.
