Statues of loggers. Forks Timber Museum, Loggers Memorial

Chainsaw carvings of two loggers cutting a log are outside the Forks Timber Museum. The museum is on Hwy 101, a few miles south of town.

[Joe Boulter, 08/21/2012]

The Timber Museum sculpture seems to represent old and modern loggers, with a red-bearded mountain man holding one end of the two-man saw, and a guy wearing a safety helmet holding the other end. Next to it is the Loggers Memorial, with another wood-carved statue of a logger. It honors the hundreds of loggers who have died on the job in the Western Olympic Peninsula.

Loggers Memorial

A 7 ft logger was carved by chainsaw by a local artisan -- Dennis of Den's Wood Den, located about 7 miles south of town. The statue is located next to the town's small museum and visitors center. There are cases that list the names of townspeople who have worked in the logging industry. The detail on the memorial is amazing, from the facial features to the Copenhagen ring in the back pocket.
