People express themselves with many different tools to create
art forms; a paintbrush, a pen and paper, a musical instrument,
etc. Tim Pattillo, however, prefers a chainsaw.
For the past seven years, Pattillo has been carving blocks of ice
and wood with perhaps the least gentle of the art "tools."
Recently, he was commissioned to carve a 350-pound block of ice in
front of Casey's Caboose to kick off the 21st Annual Taste of
Tennessee. With several chainsaws on deck, Pattillo carved a
beautiful sculpture of a caboose in front of the restaurant. Many
stopped to admire his work.
With a Jack Daniels bottle and some twinkling lights, Tim laid the
final touches just before dusk on Thursday evening.
