Our last Dahl’s Chainsaw Art location was while we were visiting historic Deadwood, South Dakota. They have my favorite chair and a bench with owls carved into it that I completely fell in love with. Jamey is lucky that we travel full-time in a pop-up because the bench was divine. They also carved out a motorcycle shaped like Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon which Jamey took pics with.
The giant wooden chair at this location has the head of Wild Bill Hickock carved into it. The back of the chair features a dead man’s hand which consists of black aces and eights. This is the hand Wild Bill was reportedly holding when he was murdered playing cards right down the street in the No #10 Saloon.
If you are ever in South Dakota and passing through Deadwood, Keystone or Hill City take the time to stop at a Dahl’s Chainsaw Art location. You won’t be disappointed and who doesn’t love a fun photo op!
