TURN A TREE INTO A PIECE OF ART - Wood Sculptures
Jeff May is in the business of making an old tree or stump into a work of art. Jeff does his sculpting work with STIHL chainsaws. Using chain bars and chains that are available for sculpting, he turns wood into some rather amazing things. The pictures of the bear sculpting you see here started out as a roughly 5,000-pound round from a Ponderosa pine. A crane truck was used to set this into place. Jeff sets up scaffolding and with two different STIHL chainsaws, begins his task to make what you want. It is interesting to watch him work; he puts a lot of thought into it and the results are marvelous. Jeff May can be reached at 208-215-5208 or visit his website at http://www.jeff-may.com.

Various Vintage Tractors and Equipment
The following tractors were at one time, owned and restored by Gene Story. Each of these tractors were acquired for no more than $200, running or not. Some, including the the rare AOS were obtained for free. Even though many tractors have been collected long before I started, sometimes people were happy to have non working or no longer useful tractors hauled off.
