When my thoughts turn to carving, I think about the sound of a draw knife being pulled through wood and the tap of a mallet on a carving gouge.
And then there are woodworkers like Cherie Currie, the Chainsaw Chick. With a screaming chainsaw, Cherie turns logs into works of art. With chips flying – AND proper safety gear on – Cherie creates wood carvings of tremendous scope with exceptionally fine detail.
Chainsaw carving isn’t the only thing Cherie is good at. She was the former lead singer with the band The Runaways, featuring Joan Jett, Lita Ford, Sandy West and Jackie Fox, and she acted in several movies and is a noted author.
