Carver in the Dells

My name is Imre Gyergyai but everybody knows me as ‘Tony’. I’m Hungarian, I have been living in the U.S. since 2002. That is when I first got introduced to chainsaw carving and I have been carving wood ever since.
I met and became friends with Reese Halverson and apprenticed with him for a year.  Since that time I have worked alongside his brother, Buzz-Saw-Bob, for several years. Over the years I have hosted several carvers in my shop by the Craft Mall of Wisconsin Dells .I have gotten a lot of great inspiration as well as new techniques from my fellow carvers.
In the first few years of my career I attended many fairs, demonstrations and even got the chance to be part of the four – man team that won the St. Paul Ice Carving Competition in 2003. Nowadays I like to stay at my shop and do most of my work there.
