Tough Jobs: Chainsaw Artist

Jon Mykkanen has been a builder his entire life but he decided to turn his love for wood and building things, into a full time job with Marie Serafin.

Together they own Woodworks Chainsaw Carving in Johannesburg.

They taught Whitney Amann how to turn a giant log, into a pumpkin — from carving to sanding, torching and buffing.

Whitney and photojournalist Catie Emery put their skills to the test as a chainsaw carver, or chainsaw artist, for this Tough Job in Northern Michigan.
