5. My cousin, in Grand Rapids, said it's been snowing most of the day, there

We've gotten some big fat blobs of something snow like and might get an inch, or two, by morning.

6. We're about to go under a high wind advisory, in mid-Michigan

This is the most dismal Halloween I can remember, for years.

8. I like your jack-o-lanterns, very creative

Here in the Buffalo area, it rained all day and we're now on a wind advisory. I had to bring in all my outdoor decorations before they blew away.

We only got one trick-or-treater tonight.

9. I live in the country,

but I always buy candy and leave the light on.

We had snow and wind here. No trick or treaters.

10. Carved these last year.

A trump supporter actually bought the one with the tongue sticking out.

15. Thanks

A part of my income is from chainsaw sculpture one year I did some jack o lanterns and had a few left and took them to a Christmas art show they sold immediately, so now I carve them year round. I like to do different stuff than the stereotypical bears and eagles though I have done plenty of them too.

16. Amazing!

I have a questions about your pumpkin carvings.

1. Are these safe from the outdoor elements if placed outside?

2. Is there an entrance available on your carvings to place a flameless candle inside?

3. Are these about 14"-16" tall?

4. How much do you generally charge for each piece?

17. Yes they are treated for outside

After burning sanding staining and tinting they get two coats of CWF deck and siding preservative.

The back flips open for a flickering led light I supply

I can carve then to any size needed

They start at 70.00 and go up from there, average is 85-100

All of the pumpkins are carved from a quarter log I take a large log and quarter it this eliminates cracking associated with a lot of chainsaw sculpture

I also make birdhouses which are a big seller, the woodspirit design is popular.
