The 2nd Tinglewood Festival in Montevallo's Orr Park drew more than 7,000 people.

The all-woodworking event featured onsite chainsaw wood carving, numerous woodworking artist vendors, a whittling contest, a classic car show, a wooden boat race in the creek and live music.

This year’s festival, endorsed by the Alabama Bicentennial Commission, also included the unveiling of a special carving done by the festival’s namesake, Tim Tingle, to commemorate the state’s 200th birthday.

Adults and children stopped by the chainsaw carving exhibition to watch woodworkers Heather Bailey, Justin Bailey, Corey Lancaster, Abby Peterson and Justin Driver turn large pieces of wood into works of art before their eyes.
