Work continued to progress on the chainsaw carving of an old Oak tree in Mesopotamia.

The damaged 300-year-old tree stands outside of the End of the Commons General Store.

The finished product is still a mystery, but the artist did reveal the carving will include a human character. Onlookers continued to watch the artist, Bob Anderson continue his work on the 15-foot tree.

Rot in the middle of the tree has delayed progress of the final product by a couple of days.

Bob Anderson, the chainsaw artist said despite the setback, it was a nice weekend to continue work on the tree.  He also took a moment to remember the importance of Memorial Day weekend, as his father and uncles served during World War II.

“He’s the reason why i’m here,” said Anderson. “He’s the one who taught me how to carve as a kid and without him showing me that. I wouldn’t be to this level in my life I don’t believe.”
