Above are some of the chisels Ryan Watson bought while working with Walter S. Arnold on the Chicago Board of Trade building. These tools predate the depression of 1929, most of which have the carvers names punched right into them from over 80 years ago!
With our latest carving complete (see previous blog), Watson's onto the next project. This one will be the signage for the new Timber Pointe building on Queen Street and 3rd Ave in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Watson predicts it will take at least 50 hours of hand carved detail and will stand over 7 feet tall. Stay tuned for progress pics and follow us on facebook and twitter!
