Chain saw art at Lockenhaus Castle, Austria

While I was trying to make some peaceful art like a painting several ladies of my group were interested to make something more adventourus. They joined a lesson in creating art with a chain saw instructed by Michael Schlapschy. After finishing my painting lesson I was curious to see how the ladies created things like racks for DVDs just by a tree trunk and a chain saw.
