Chainsaw carver Jeffro Uitto (4)
Jeffro Uitto is a professional chainsaw wood sculptor from Tokeland, Washington. As a kid he always played with pocket knives and got into carving little things then it evolved into chainsaws and what he does today. He uses a lot of driftwood he finds on the beach for his projects. Sometimes he will hold onto a piece of wood for 3 or 4 years before he finds the perfect spot for it. KCBY News profiled Uitto as part of the coverage of the 14th Annual Oregon Divisional Chainsaw Sculpting Championships in Reedsport, Oregon, the Chainsaw Carving Capital of Oregon.
