Chainsaws are a dangerous tool, not intended to make fine detailed art, but that's exactly what Stacy Poitras does with them. He is a professional chainsaw artist with a shop is in the Santa Monica Mountains above Malibu. With a background in fine art and a blaring chainsaw in his hands, he'll transform a dead stump into a bear or an owl or a naked woman.
