For Dow, it's go big or go home

RIDGWAY – The Ridgway Chainsaw Carvers Rendezvous, and the chainsaw carving art form itself has evolved over the years.Many of the carvers convening in downtown Ridgway were once humble beginners, creating mushrooms and bears from random logs. The mantra of late, however, seems to be "Go big or go home," as carvers continuously try to get better and better, and take on projects of seemingly epic proportions.A prime example is Scott Dow, owner of Animalistic Chainsaw Carving Studio along U.S. Route 6 in Corry.
