Ever heard of carving wood with a chainsaw? Let Gilbert explain...
Gilbert Henry is one of those people you start talking to and soon realize how interesting and knowledgeable he is. Gilbert was adopted by a family who taught him the art of wood carving. Now he makes his living carving the Ziricote wood of Belize and selling his work. You truly won't Belize the tools and techniques he and his partners use to carve a variety of statues, cutting boards, and bowls. All I can say, is I have a much more profound appreciation for hand-made wooden items! Be sure to subscribe to the Channel because you won't want to miss Part 2 of this interview!!!
